I've loosely contrived this command: except-specific-verbatim


Which tries to render for output except verbatim output. It works because <if*|false|...> doesn't reserve space for verbatim export.

Where I have been using langle I now use:

And thus manage to squash its appearance.

More generally, nv-langle and nv-rangle can have overridable substitution characters used in verbatim mode:







Is there a better way I could define specific-verbatim to avoid output in non-verbatim export? I wish there were an environment variable set during rendering...

texmacs text export:

which is clearly un-readable.

A while ago it ignored langle and rangle on output, but if it has to do something, substituting < and > would be better than what it is doing now.

I also note that text export mode inserts blank lines all over the place. This is welcome (it was needed), except in code blocks where mode=code where the blank lines make the text harder to read.

It would be nice if there was a <specific> mode for verbatim output. I'm currently using: <assign|specific-verbatim|<macro|x|<with|color|white|magnification|0.01|<arg|x>>>>

It would be nice if there were an "except" - like specific (except that it reserved space in the output) that did not emit the argument for certain environments.

Then I can have an <except|verbatim|<langle>><specific|verabatim|\<>
so I can at least influence a meaningful text representation of the document.
