Macro package

(bibMacros 3.2)


This set of macros assists you in editing and managing BibTEX files. It comes with two interfaces: Either a Popup Menu or a Main Menu. Both contain the following commands:

The macros are easily configurable by editing one global configuration file (you don't have to know (almost) anything about WinEdt's macro language).
You can customize, e.g.:

  • how the entries should be aligned and formatted;
  • whether you want brackets or quotes around field values;
  • how the key shall be generated;
  • which fields shall be proposed as new fields;
  • which fields shall be put in new entry templates.
  • Furthermore, you can define all options locally for bibliography files.

In a nutshell: It's a powerful set of macros.

Installation Instructions

Unzip the file in %b\Macros\LaTeX\ and execute the macro _Install.edt to install the menus.

The file bibMacros.pdf explains all commands and shows you how to configure the macros, should you not be satisfied with the defaults.
