FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is Latex Editor Windows?

The free and open-source Latex Editor Windows is a modern browser latex editor. The app allows you to alter the code using the built-in latex editor, as well as compile it and view the rendered document (bottom section). For now, the latex compiler only supports simple latex commands. For more advanced documents, you’ll need to install a native latex application. You may print the document to PDF format by clicking the print button after compiling a latex code (via the print UI). Please be advised that this app makes use of CodeMirror and LaTex.js open-source javascript libraries. This add-on has no preferences to configure; simply launch any latex document and get started working on it right away.

2. What can I do with this add-on?

The editing experience with the latex editor addon is straightforward. Simply open a .tex file or drag and drop the file into the app’s UI. Alternatively, you may type in the code yourself in the editor area, or write your own from scratch. After you’ve finished editing it, please click on the compile button to convert the latex code to an HTML5 document. The produced PDF (HTML) is displayed in the bottom section of the application UI after that. You can always click on PDF to display a print window if one exists among your printers. If there is a pdf printer listed, you can use it to convert HTML5 text to PDF. The next time you click on the PDF button, the pdf printer will be chosen as the default selection, so you won’t have to select it again. This program lacks any settings or options to adjust, as previously stated. Simply upload it to your browser and start editing LaTeX documents. A sample code is also included in the package. When you first open the app, the sample latex code will be loaded into the editor area. Please study the sample code to learn about latex compiler commands that can be processed.

3. Is the addon compatible with other native latex software?

No. Because this program uses a Javascript API to convert LaTeX papers, it does not have the performance of native applications. It is only useful for simple latex instructions. In addition, compiler speeds are slower than those found in native apps. However, on the other side, it requires no external libraries or programs and runs seamlessly within your browser, making it considerably easier to use than traditional applications.
