[AUCTeX-devel] Re: [AUCTeX] feature request (preview-latex): previewing

Subject: [AUCTeX-devel] Re: [AUCTeX] feature request (preview-latex): previewing without master file, with a default preamble
Date: Sat, 3 Feb 2007 23:18:40 +0100

Could someone knowledgeable of dependecies make it possible to have
the default preamble file in a customizable location? (See my note
cited at the end of this message. Moreover, the behavior described
there could be specific to my local settings.) Then previewing no
file's buffers would become a feature.

It is simple in the end, as you said. After the buffer is created, set
`TeX-master' to a file in home directory, set `TeX-header-end' and
`TeX-trailer-start' to their default values.

With a `TeX-master' out of place, `preview-parse-messages' doesn't
recognise that some file is "<none>", because it is like
"../../<none>", that is, it's path is home relative to the path of the
preamble, and `preview-parse-messages' has hard-coded check against
