- I agree with Ted -- send it on to the Vim-Latex list.
Assuming that the text after <tab> will show on the menus of all
systems is a bad assumption. The text after <tab> is supposed to be
used to give the user a hint as to how this menu can be called using
only the keyboard (e.g. "Split-Open..." says ":sp") -- it is not
supposed to be used as a way of "typesetting" the menu labels (the way
On MacVim the text after <tab> is shown in a tooltip that pops up
after letting the mouse hover over the menu item for a second or two.
There is no support in the Cocoa APIs to have some menu text
right-aligned the way it works for gvim on other platforms -- hence
the use of tooltips.
