Dear Stefan:


thank you very much. 

Yes I found the mistakes you pointed out, I appreciate it very much.


I tried you suggestion, yes if I modify the line beginning with {equation} I can get what I want

However if I try to modiry the line beginning with bequ:.....

and I press Tab after typing bequ I still get the old one..


btw, dear Joseph thank you for your reminding, I always reopen texworks after modifying the tw-latex.txt, am I correct? :p


The most weird thing, I moved tw-latex.txt away and created a new tw-latex.txt file with only


%%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode


as its content and when I pressed tab after typing bequ, I still got 





I pressed tab several times, then I got what I modified. So, I guess, are there some complement codes "embedded" in texworks?


Yes the tab+ctrl seems to be occupied by windows as some kind of hotkey, I am not sure if the software autohotkey can

help us release it from windows....


Thank you

Regards, Shao Peng
