• @Dan How to turn tex macro? I tried (add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook 'turn-on-tex-macros) with no effect. – Name Jul 21 '15 at 5:22

• @Dan Thanks. I found it! Putting (require 'tex-fold) (add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook 'TeX-fold-mode) in .emacs then M-x TeX-fold-buffer can do what I was looking for. (Note the command is M-x TeX-fold-buffer not M-x tex-fold-buffer). – Name Jul 22 '15 at 9:14
