Feature Suggestions • Problems when making TeXnicCenter portable


I followed a suggestion I found on the net to make TeXnicCenter portable. They suggested to use the program Reg_Rapper. Basically, Reg_Rapper sets the Windows Registry properly, so a given program “sees” the registry keys it expects to find. The solution works quite well, but there is an issue on the storage of Output profiles.

I have checked that the entry “ProcessCmd” in the branches “ViewProjectCmd” and “ViewCloseCmd” include a “\n” sequence to separate the Path of the executable and the command line arguments. However, I have detected that the “\n” sequence is not properly imported by this Reg_Rapper program nor the Microsoft reg.exe command.

I suggest modifying the program to ease the portability, namely not including the \n (carriage return) sequence in the registry entries. To do it, I think the “ProcessCmd” could be splitted in two entries: “ProcessCmd_Path” and “ProcessCmd_Arguments”, so the “\n” sequence is not needed any more.

Thanks a lot for your attention.

Feature Suggestions • Footnote and Endnote Color

Under Tools > Options > Text Format > Colors I would appreciate having the option to change the color of text within a footnote or endnote, much like you can set the color of text within an equation. This would make it easier for a writer to focus on just the note text or just the paragraph’s text while they are writing and reviewing.

On a related note, and perhaps I’m missing something, but the option to change the color of text in verbatim (in TeXnicCenter 2.0 Alpha 4) does not seem to actually change the color of the text.

Thanks for all your great work so far. TeXnicCenter is my favorite editor.
