In vim-latexsuite how do I make vim completing references and equations labels with . in them? For example, I call the equations by chapters:


But then, when trying to reference these equations, by hitting Ctrl+n, vim doesn't recognize the . part and it just completes the first word. Any solution?

    I don't use this plugin so my solution might be totally out but does :set iskeyword+=. would solve your problem?

  • I think @statox may be right. Though, the completion you want works as expected withouth altering iskeyword in my plugin, vimtex, and I believe it also should work in LaTeX-Box. Aug 16 '15 at 20:48

I took time to install vim-latexsuite and I can confirm that my comment was right: you simply have to execute :set iskeyword+=. to make completion work.

To avoid executing this function on each latex file you edit you can add the following line

setlocal iskeyword+=.

To the syntax file .vim/ftplugin/tex.vim
