Hi Alain,

This has nothing to do with themes. Themes do determine how things  
are colored, but it is the syntax that determines what *can* be  
colored by assigning scopes to things, and your questions all relate  
to things possibly not being scoped properly.

Shouldn't there be a \ in front of :=13 ?

All these are essentially the same question, and it has to do with  
dealing with @. At the moment we are not allowing @ as part of a  
command. I thought it was a character to avoid in LaTeX. Can you  
explain a bit what all the above stand for syntactically, i.e. what  
pieces are together and what they represent? I am personally not too  
familiar with the uses of @.

I would suggest using the "Edit Configuration File" command, and  
adding your own commands and shortcuts there. Would that meet the  
case for you, or do you really want to use esc for completion,  
instead of the "insert command based..." command?
