In addition to using the variables defined in this section to affect the menu-layout permanently (i.e, the layout Latex-Suite will start with), you can also use the TeX-Suite > Configure Menu menu to dynamically configure the menu layout after Latex-Suite has started.

11.8.1 g:Tex_Menus

TypeBoolean
Default Value1

If set to 0, Latex-Suite will suppress showing all menus. Useful if you mostly work in terminals.

11.8.2 g:Tex_MainMenuLocation

Typenumber
Default Value80

This setting decides the location of the first top-level Latex-Suite menu. You can for example shift all the menus created by Latex-Suite to the very end by setting this value to a large number like 990.

11.8.3 g:Tex_MathMenus

TypeBoolean
Default Value1

The Tex-Math menu consists of hundreds of mathematical symbols used in LaTeX. This menu comprises about 75% of the menus.

11.8.4 g:Tex_NestElementMenus

TypeBoolean
Default Value1

This setting controls the "compactness" of the menus. If set to 1, then the Font, Counter and Dimensioning menus are collected together in a single menu called Tex-Elements, otherwise, they will each get a separate menu.

11.8.5 g:Tex_PackagesMenu

TypeBoolean
Default Value1

Setting this to zero will stop Latex-Suite from automatically creating the TeX-Suite > Packages > Supported menu at startup. You can still create the menu after startup by going to TeX-Suite > Configure Menu.

11.8.6 g:Tex_NestPackagesMenu

TypeString
Default Value'TeX-'

This string is the prefix added to all the menus created by Latex-Suite. If you define this variable with a dot ('.') as the last character, then all the menus created by Latex-Suite will be nested under a single master menu. For example, set this to '&LaTeX-Suite.' to nest all menus under a menu called &LaTeX-Suite.

11.8.7 g:Tex_UseUtfMenus

TypeBoolean
Default Value0

This setting controls whether Latex-Suite uses utf-8 symbols to display some of the mathematical symbols in the TeX-Math menu. It is necessary for your system/GUI to support utf-8. Setting this to 1 has the side-effect of setting the 'encoding' option of Vim to 'utf-8'.
