Chapter 9. Configuring Kate

Anders Lund


Kate offers several means of tweaking the application to behave as desired. The most important ones are:

The Configuration Dialog

The main configuration tool, allowing you to configure the Kate application, the editor component and the usage of plugins.

The Settings Menu

Allows you to change often used settings, and to launch the configuration dialogs.

The View Menu

Allows you to split the current frame, as well as to display the icons and line numbers pane for the currently edited document.

The embedded terminal uses the configuration defined in the System Settings, and may also be configured by clicking the right mouse button to display a context menu.
