## Re: [AUCTeX] Replace $...$ with $$...$$

I am wondering if there is a fast way to replace $...$ with $$...$$. From looking at the code of LaTeX-modify-environment, it seems that it is hard-coded to look for "begin" and "end"...

What's the use case here?  Changing the current environment while you
are editing (in) it or changing several environments across a file?  For
the first there is no support in LaTeX-modify-environment' (yet) and
the second would be a case for search and replace.



I was thinking about the first point. I usually use display equations without tags, but every now and then, after writing some equation using $...$, I realize that I need to refer to it later. At that point I would like to move the point to that equation and change it to $$...$$.


$...$ could be supported better in AUCTeX.  If we take a look at
modification we should probably also take a look at insertion.


OK, that's just some suggestion for the future...

Thanks,
Evgeny
