Print to a Postscript file Keep
Recursive repeats for quick editing of structured text Keep relaunch Keep (Note 1)

Note 1: Page is for planning site. The page will not be treated as a tip (it will not have a tip template or number).

Create LaTeX Tables[]

Keep While sympathetic to Fritzophrenic's view below, in the interests of clearing the large backlog I have decided to keep this tip. It's well done, and would be very helpful for someone with that need. It might be better if our various LaTeX tips were merged, but that's not going to happen soon.

I'm stumped on this one. It isn't a Vim script, so we really can't feature it on our page for that. That's the best I can think of, though. I don't think it belongs in a tip by itself. --Fritzophrenic 22:29, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Print to a Postscript file[]

Keep, but needs some cleanup to tell exactly what it accomplishes. --Fritzophrenic 22:29, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Recursive repeats for quick editing of structured text[]

Keep, keep, KEEP! This tip is simple, but is such an amazing idea that I'm still geeked about it. I use it all the time. The slickness of the method in this tip means I don't just want to keep it, I want to feature it as soon as it is polished enough. One of the best tips I've seen in a while. KEEP! --Fritzophrenic 03:22, 18 January 2009 (UTC) relaunch[]

Like filetype.vim in September new tips, this page is not a tip. My intention is to just list such pages when they occur (like I'm listing this one), and not put any TipNew or whatever template on them (I'll think about the filteype.vim page and whether it should have a template later). Of course if I think a page is not appropriate, I'll say so, but I would oppose any suggestion that the Vim Tips wiki should only have Vim Tips, and I'm very happy that people are using this wiki for the discussion. --JohnBeckett 04:25, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
