Please accept my apologies for posting without a subject… this was
actually the third time I tried, because somehow everything I sent
went as html by mistake.
Thanks for the search expression. I will try to save it somewhere and
try it out.
I tried the texshop-wiki as well and there Herbert Schultz suggested
to doubleklick right after an opening brace or right before a closing
brace. If everything is alright all text within the braces should be
selected together with the two braces. Unfortunately that still is
Someone I met in texusergroup hinted about some editors beeing smart
enough to do this but I really want to hang to TexShop because it
seems the only thing I'm able to work properly (simple but elegant,
no programming-skill neded, excellent sync between source and pdf)…
Anyway thanks a lot!
