auto-coloring for writing in latex


Wonderful program. I write in latex, and it seems like scrivener is a great way to compose a paper and then send the copy over to texshop for the final formatting. One thing though is that for those who actually write in latex (rather than using the MMD export), it would be really excellent if you could select a latex mode in which tags such as \cite{} and \ref{} (or, essentially, anything following a backslash or in curly brackets) would auto-color themselves so that my eye would see them differently. Any chance?

Hi, thanks for the feedback. I’m afraid that syntax highlighting like this is unilkely ever to appear in Scrivener, as although it is LaTeX-friendly via MMD, it is a rich text editor rather than the sort of text editor that is syntax “aware”.
All the best,
