I really like the TeX input method. It makes typing symbols a breeze, since years of LaTeX have worked the symbols into my muscle memory.
However, input methods have their quirks (like not working with
key-chords), and I'd rather not leave it on all the time.
I also like the
iso-transl C-x 8 map. It's handy because it's always there and very unintrusive. However, it has a rather small vocabulary of symbols, and I can never remember their keys.
Is there any way I can either
- bind a command to C-x 8 \ that will prompt for a name from the
TeXinput method and insert it, even if the
TeXinput method is not active
- Temporarily enable the
TeXIM for one character only.
