I'm working with large LaTeX tables in AucTEX and it would be helpful to display them in truncated lines, like here:
The red marks are the "&" characters which separate the columns of the table. In case of tables with many columns the latex source code for one table row is longer than the
emacs frame width and therefore will be by default wrapped into more than one line.
align-current, this will make the table source code very hard to read and edit, so
- for tables I'd prefer the source code lines to be truncated (forcing me to scroll horizontally)
- while for all other
latexsource, I'd prefer
word wrapto make it fit to the frame width
However for the real text in my LaTeX document I'd prefer to have the normal
Is it possible to use
word-wrap as standard in
Emacs and still have some latex environments in the same buffer like
truncated at the same time?
Also for some other environments like
tikzpicture truncation seems to be more appropriate. So it might be a good idea to be able to define a list of environments which don't get wraped but truncated.
The wrapping should be soft wrapping (That is, the text is wrapped to fill-column in the buffer, but that does not reflect in the file) and wrapping an indented line should follow the line’s indentation.
The solutions should also work for emacs but also for Aquamacs 2.5.
There is a blog post which suggests to have a (partial) solution, but I didn't find the implementation: http://endlessparentheses.com/longlines-mode-in-latex.html
