Symbol insertion more conveniently?
The symbol auto-insertion feature seems to depend on having a
whitespace before (and after) the text-to-be-replaced. Is there a way
to circumvent this?
E.g. I can write the formula
〈 α | H | ψ 〉
\lang \alpha | H | \psi \rang
However, if I want to write it as
〈α| H |ψ〉
then I have to add a good deal of cursor movement.
Is there some way to avoid this?
If not, would it be possible to implement an option to make `\' start
sort of an "insertion mode"? I was thinking along the lines of Lyx in
- \ starts the insertion of a special character, in LyX even including
- The next space-press doesn't insert a whitespace but causes
insertion of the symbol.
- A literal \ is still available by typing \\.
For Zim, a literal space would implicitly still be available by
pressing space twice.
