Hi all,

I just found about TeX-error-overview, but when I first tried to use it it just 
complained that there were "no errors or warning to show".  Reading through the 
implementation, I realized that it filters warnings using 
TeX-error-list-skip-warning-p, which itself excludes all warnings by default 
(maybe the message should be changed? It could say "no errors or warning to 
show; try customizing `…'"? Also, the error list has a menu that allows me to 
change what kind of errors are displayed but it's useless here: AucTeX errors 
out instead of showing an empty list when there's nothing to display)

I found this default surprising, until I realized that it's also used for 
TeX-next-error (and it makes a lot of sense to jump to errors first, instead of 
warnings).  So now I have my own wrapper that binds TeX-debug-warnings and 
TeX-debug-bad-boxes to t around a call to TeX-error-overview; that's not very 

Maybe we need separate parameters for the error list and for the next-error 
function? I don't usually want to browse through warnings if there are errors, 
but I seldom want to see a list of only errors.  Another option would be to 
show all warnings in the error list when there are no errors.

In any case, I think it would make sense to have a different default for the 
errors and warnings list and for the next-error function.

Cheers and thanks!
