Visual Windows for TeX

 date Error/Warning/New Description Corrected in 2012/11/08 For Unicode-based TeX  (TeX/LaTeX & xeTeX/xeLaTeX) 2012-140/110 For a TeX file written by using English words only (ASCII), to save this file sometimes fails because of the file sharing violation, where the file is being used by another process, after it is reloaded to refresh its content modified outside Vtexwin For Unicode TeX (TeX/LaTeX) In the dialog to change character-colors in the editor, a selected new color for [Keyword, Math mode or Comment] cannot appear in the sample editor-box although this change can be included in the editor itself. When a Pdf file needs to be updated, no message to ask you to update it, which supposedly appears, does not appear. For Ascii/ShiftJIS-basedTeX When a Pdf file needs to be updated, no message to ask you to update it, which supposedly appears, does not appear. Common TeX When multiple project is used, to view a dvi/pdf file contained in a project other than the active project accompanies a message to ask to update this dvi/pdf file when it is older but to update it is unexpectedly performed just for the dvi/pdf file contained in the active project. sometimes fails at the first time. If a keyword contains a keyword such as \label in \section{\label{sec:intro} Introduction}, the contained keyword cannot be detected. If keywords contained in a file, which is read by a [\input] command in other file, these keywords are now detected. To jump to the definition of a specified keyword by pressing [F11] on the keyword is not sometimes initiated. The parent TeX file that does not exist is listed in the file list. The message that appears when the active project is updated is corrected.
 date Error/Warning/New Description Corrected in 2012/07/28 Common TeX 2012-130/100 Allocated memories when files are opened by [\input] are not released.
 date Error/Warning/New Description Corrected in 2012/07/22 Unicode-based TeX (TeX/LaTeX & xeTeX/xeLaTeX) 2012-129/099 If the automated recovery system of Vtexwin is active, Vtexwin sometimes abnormally terminated when the automated recovery system is about to start. Common TeX To detect \cite etc. fails if the word in front of the \-mark is a word other than a delimiter such as a space, a parenthesis and a carriage return. To rename the parent TeX in the file list unexpectedly changes the icon showing a parent TeX into the ordinary icon. In the inverse search from the viewer, when the Unicode version is active but the ShiftJIS version is registered in the viewer (or the vice versa), the name of the TeX file that contains the clicked line in the viewer cannot be correctly sent to the editor. if the name includes characters other than ASCII codes
 date Error/Warning/New Description Corrected in 2012/07/10 Common TeX 2012-128/098 For [Find inside Files], The "case-insensitive" search lists lines, where the found word is contained, in output windows and double-clicking it opens a file by the "case-sensitive" search of the word, As a result, the jump into the file sometimes fails. To show multiply-detected words when they are contained in one line. Vtexwin sometimes abnormally terminated if sentenses described in the searched file ends without the carriage return.
 date Error/Warning/New Description Corrected in 2012/07/08 Common TeX 2012-127/097 To open a project file by double-clicking it is mistakenly disabled.
 date Error/Warning/New Description Corrected in 2012/07/06 For Unicode-based TeX  (TeX/LaTeX & xeTeX/xeLaTeX) 2012-126/096 Sometimes a unnecessary message "need to update a file to be viewed" before viewing it is shown. For some of viewers, a file for a viewer cannot be written by TeX due to Sharing Violation if viewer opens the file to be created by TeX Common TeX To jump onto keyword by pressing [F11], [Ctrl]+{Num+,-] is mistakenly disabled.
 date Error/Warning/New Description Corrected in 2012/07/03 For Unicode-based TeX  (TeX/LaTeX & xeTeX/xeLaTeX) 2012-124/094 Unicode versions cannot read project files. Some of allocated memory failed to be released. Common TeX When a backup file updates the original file with the different encoding from ShiftJIS/UTF16, if it is opened on the editor at the startup, meaningless characters are shown because the automated conversion into ShiftJIS/UTF16 is skipped. The way to react to the appearance of TeX warnings/errors in the menu [TeX]-[Select TeX Errors]/[Resume after TeX Warning] is not saved. In the dialog opened from [TeX]-[TeX Executable], the related TeX tools to a specified file extension are not sometimes all listed depending on your Windows system environment.
 date Error/Warning/New Description Corrected in 2012/06/27 For Unicode-based TeX  (TeX/LaTeX & xeTeX/xeLaTeX) 2012-121/093 Drag & drop of sentences on the editor was cancelled outside the editor region, On the right region showing the line number, this cancellation is not done. Project file sometimes cannot be read and an error message shows up. For Unicode TeX (TeX/LaTeX) Automated conversion to UTF8 is sometimes abnormally finished for TeX files that are not opened on the editor. As a result, TeXing fails. For Ascii/ShiftJIS-basedTeX The last one word is removed if files with UTF16 encoding are saved. The menu [File]-[Reload Opened File]-[Encode Specified] is added. [Temporarily Enabled [Return at the Line End] cannot be enabled. To use -[Shorten Line Length] is recommended. Common TeX After TeX is completed and when the successive launch of viewer is scheduled, to resume this launch even if errors/warnings are found, this setting is now available in the menu [TeX]-[Select TeX Errors]/[Resume after TeX Warning]. When TeX is successfully finished after second TeXing was performed, the search for TeX warnings/errors, which are not present,  by pressing [F4] or by selecting the menu sometimes will not be completed.  As a result, inputs by mouse and keyboard cannot not be accepted. [Open by User Editor] sometimes causes unexpected crash. To jump onto keyword by pressing Shift+F11 followed by pressing Ctrl+[NumPad+] does not give a next jump to the same keyword in another position if more than one keyword are contained in one line. Valid searching for words inside files cannot be done for files with different encoding from the editor encoding. Automated conversion into the editor encoding is added. [xx replaced:] is shown after words are searched inside files.
 date Error/Warning/New Description Corrected in 2012/06/16 For Unicode-based TeX  (TeX/LaTeX & xeTeX/xeLaTeX) 2012-119/091 If automated indent is active when setting of Ascii/ShiftJIS-based TeX is transferred to Unicode-based TeX, sentences on a certain line sent to the next line by carriage return sometimes disappear if spaces/tabs are located at the head of the line To view a backup file fails in a dialog of the automated recovery of files at the next startup, which were on the editor after Vtexwin was abnormally terminated. For Unicode TeX (TeX/LaTeX) TeX is executed without updating modified part of TeX files For Ascii/ShiftJIS-basedTeX If TeX files are created by UNICODE(UTF16)-encoding, TeX fails to create a DVI file because the conversion of UNICODE into Ascii/ShiftJIS, which is supposed to be executed, is not executed. Common TeX A symbol character is inserted twice when it is inserted by clicking the corresponding figure in TeX symbol dialog. When TeX needs the second TeX to create DVI/PDF files, the second TeX is executed by ignoring errors even if errors occur at the first TeX. When a folder is opened by "Folder Containing this File", "Folder for the Main TeX File", or "Project Folder" in the menu [Option]-[Open Folders], to open this folder fails if the folder contains = in its name. A message showing "TeX error is found" is shown in the output window even if the corresponding keyword to detect TeX errors is disabled. For example, the keyword "LaTeX Font Warning: Command" is disabled but a line such as "LaTeX Font Warning: Command \footnotesize invalid in math mode on input line 18" supplies "invalid in math mode" to be detected as a TeX error, which shows "TeX error is found" in the output windows. Automated carriage return at the end of line is not applied to the editor if the number of words in one line is not specified. TeX file is not saved before TeX is executed if TeX sentences are written by pasting other sentences into a file whose content is empty . An existing project cannot be opened if the current project is a multiple project, which contains this project. In the dialog opened by the menu [Help]-[Option of W32TeX], to check [Automated search also at the next startup] always searches for updated W32TeX files mistakenly at every startup.
