  • inline image preview powered by iimage-mode
  • fix inline-math highlighting for documents with multi-byte characters

Installation

  1. Install an unicode font supporting many symbols (eg. Symbolas, Unifont, etc).
  2. Put magic-latex-buffer.el into a “load-path”ed directory, and load it in your init file:
    (require 'magic-latex-buffer)
        

You can activate the magic with M-x magic-latex-buffer in a latex-mode buffer. If you want to activate automatically, add the function to the mode hook.

(add-hook 'latex-mode-hook 'magic-latex-buffer)

Customizations

You can disable some features independently, if they’re too fancy.

(setq magic-latex-enable-block-highlight nil
      magic-latex-enable-suscript        t
      magic-latex-enable-pretty-symbols  t
      magic-latex-enable-block-align     nil
      magic-latex-enable-inline-image    nil
      magic-latex-enable-minibuffer-echo nil)

Known Issues

  • Not perfectly compatible with multiple-cursors (but still usable)
