I have some shortcuts for LaTeX in ./vim/after/latex.vim but when I open a LaTeX file, this shortcuts are not available, and I need to load the file manually. I guess this is related to the Latex-vim plugin.

How can I set these shortcuts to be loaded automatically?


Add them into ~/.vim/after/ftplugin/tex/.

:h 'rtp' IIRC and :h ftplugin

  • Can I throw stuff in whatever <filename>.vim in that folder?

  • Yes. That's the idea. Anything in that directory will be loaded once per buffer of (La)Tex filetype you open, and after the equivalent (ft)plugins you've installed -- I'm simplifying what's happening, but that's the idea. Read the doc for more explanations. Mar 19 '17 at 18:12
