Download TeXlips

Below you find 3 TeXlips related zip-files are available for download. All the relevant clips, batch files, icons, and text files are found in TeXlips.zip, while TeXlips_chm.zip contains the compiled HTML help file, and TeXlips_IconLibrary.zip an icon library file that TeXlips uses if you decide to associate TeX related files with NoteTab in Windows Explorer (yes, there are clips to take care of this if you have version 4.8 or later of NoteTab). To view the compiled HTML file you need to have Internet Explorer 4.0 or later installed. If you run Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows ME (heaven forbid), or Windows 98 that should take care of everything. If you use some older Windows operating system (95 or NT4) you have have to download the HTML Help ActiveX control from the Microsoft website, unless you use Internet Explorer 5.0x or later (it should include the control). You can download the whole HTML Help Workshop if you want (version 1.3 is about 4.0MB), but I think it should suffice to just download the Hhupd.exe file (about 705KB). Naturally, you need a zip-program to unzip the compressed files below (e.g. WinZip).

TeXlips 2.0 - Beta 10

There's also a beta version available of the next release, TeXlips 2.0. Apart from support for MiKTeX 2.1 and the upcoming MiKTeX 2.2, bug fixes, and some interface changes, this version supports:

  • Creation of all support files for using PostScript text and math fonts with LaTeX (via fontinst), including font description, map, config, and style files for OT1, T1, and LY1 font encodings and various other style options. In addition, you can select special fonts for fraktur, script, blackboard bold, sans serif, typewriter, math italics, math symbols, math extensions, and uppercase greek (for OT1) if these are missing, i.e. if you only have a new PostScript text font family you want to use with LaTeX. For this operation, the clip function behaves in a similar manner as the mathinst package, but it doesn't rely on perl and it automatically selects the necessary scaling factors for the special fonts. The best support is given to the commercial MathTime and Lucida Bright math fonts from Y&Y. Please note that the special fonts must already be installed as PostScript fonts in your TeX system, and that some special fonts may match your text fonts well (i.e. have approximately the same CapHeight to XHeight ratio as the text fonts) while others may not. For example, MathTime (CapHeight=657, XHeight=440 for math italics fonts, i.e. a ratio of 1.49) matches Adobe Garamond (CapHeight=663, XHeight=408 for roman italics fonts, i.e. a ratio of 1.64) fairly well, while Lucida Bright (CapHeight=723, XHeight=530 for math italics fonts, i.e. a ratio of 1.36) does not. Currently, I have successfully created the LaTeX support files for Adobe Garamond, Monotype Baskerville, Micropress BA math fonts, and Hoefler Text with this function.
