I recently installed Latex-Suite using Vundle, and I use Latex to take notes. My notes are separate files for each lecture, but I have a master.tex file set up to compile each document together, and I use the subfile packaged to do this. Unfortunately, this package can lead to some unavoidable warnings:

Package auxhook Warning: Cannot patch \document, using \AtBeginDocument instead.

I believe this is a result of having multiple nested \begin{document} environments when the files are brought together. However, it does compile, and the document looks as it should. The problem is that Latex-Suite takes this warning and opens up the file /usr/local/texlive/2017/texmf-dist/fex/latex/oberdiek/auxhook.sty, which I assume is where this warning presents. When it does this, it closes the current .tex file which I'm trying to edit, which is extremely annoying. My question is, did I set something up incorrectly with the way Latex-Suite compiles my documents, or is there a way to get this to stop happening. As a side-note, I am trying to get my final result in .pdf form for all of my compiled documents. Below are the relevant lines from my .vimrc:

let g:Tex_DefaultTargetFormat='pdf'

let g:Tex_MultipleCompileFormats='pdf'

This happens when I use the compile command \lv in Latex-Suite.

Also, this is my first post, please let me know if I've left anything important out.

1 Answer 1


I had the same problem, as far as I could find that is the result of 2 things:

  1. You are allowing vim-latex to jump to the first error atomatically. You can disable it with:
let g:Tex_GotoError=0
  1. You are probably on Windows, and the jumping to the package file is the result of a misunderstanding in the file paths. You can fix that by adding to your vimrc:
set shellslash

This, however, creates a problem within vim-latex and the command <Leader>ls, to jump to the current position in your pdf stops working. The <Leader>lv command works properly. So is up to you to decide if this is adequate for your workflow.

I hope this helps.

  • Thanks, the first bit worked! I'm on Mac so the second part didn't really apply, but thank you! Sep 28, 2019 at 19:51
