Spelling and Grammar checking

Open a text or LaTeX document. Activate spelling as “Language support → Spelling” and “Language support→grammar”. You will see misspelled words (underlined in red) or problems with the grammar (blue lines). Click left mouse and hold. You will see yellow pop-up menu. Select the proposed word or add it to the dictionary.

You should also activate suggestions if you click the tab “Spelling” at the bottom of the editor (next to “Tasks”).

Modifying LaTeX commands

You can configure external commands launched from the RTextDoc menu and modify them as needed. This may be needed if LaTeX commands (such as latex, dvips, bibtex) have non-standard locations.

Working with dictionaries

To activate the dictionary, click “Spelling”→”Look up a word”. Select a needed dictionary (or several dictionaries). You can type a word and search for its definition click the search button of the dictionary.

If you are already editing a text, select a word and find the translation of this word using “Spelling”→”Look up a word”. You will see a pop-up dictionary with the word definition (selected word should be entered automatically). It assumes that dictionary is already activated. Alternatively, if you are in the spelling mode, click on an misspelled word and select “Look up the word” (keep and hold left mouse button).

Drawing figures

RTextDoc includes a LaTeX draw tool to draw figures and generate PSTricks output. Use the menu “Macros”→”LaTeX Draw”. The tool generates EPS and PDF images, and also PSTricks rext files ready to be include to LaTeX files.

Adding additional dictionaries

RTextDoc demo version is shipped with one dictionary. You can add up to 20 different dictionaries as described below:

PDF viewers

To work with PDF files, it is recommended to install Acroread. RTextDoc automatically detect its installation. You can run it as “Run Acroread” (it is assumed that the PDF file is present, i.e. if you edit the “example.tex”, Acroread will attempt to open “example.pdf

If you edit a LaTeX file, you can also look at the output PDF files by using PDF build-in viewers (since v1.7). They are faster than Acroread, but their open-source implementation often miss some very basic features (which are considered “proprietary” for GNU-licensed underlying codes). The following PDF viewers are included which can run as “Run PDF viewer (icePDF)” or “Run PDF viewer (jPedal)”:

  • icePDF - fast PDF viewer, but typically fails to render fonts. Only recommended for simple documents.
  • jPedal - slower, but typically renders fonts (including embedded) correctly. It misses printing, however.

jPedal is a default viewer since it is superior in terms of correct rendering of fonts.
