TexMakerX is an application that integrates many tools needed to develop documents with LaTeX.

Amongst its many features are a unicode editor to write your LaTeX source files (including syntax highlighting, undo-redo, search-replace etc), 370 mathematical symbols and wizards to generate code. It also enables you to view documents by structure for easier navigation of a document. In other words, TexMakerX adds hundreds of symbols and characters to your computer that wouldn't normally be available.

Although most general users may not find a use for LaTeX, it is particularly popular with mathematicians as it allows them to perform complex formulas which they can edit far more easily. TexMakerX allows you to work with multiple documents in separate tabs with numbered lines to make distinguishing projects and documents easier. Finally, TexMakerX also features an error console on as well as a spelling tool to keep mistakes to a minimum.

TexMakerX will only mainly appeal to those with special typographical needs such as mathematicians but for anyone involved in LaTeX its a powerful tool.

Changes

  • The GUI has been extensively modified: tabs are no more used for the editor and the pdf viewer is now fully embedded in the main window (for screen with a resolution greater than 1400 px)
  • a critical bug has been fixed in the editor
  • the bug about the "latex+asymptote+latex+dvips+viewps" mode for the "quick build" command has been fixed
  • the preamble can now be collapsed (from the first line to the begin{document} command)
  • users can now add items to the auto-complete commands list
  • labels are now checked in the "childs" documents while using the "master mode" (for one level only)
  • a "full screen" mode has been added
  • the addbibresource{} command is now detected like bibliography{}
  • the code of the mathematicals symbols are displayed in a "tooltip" while moving mouse in the "symbols panels"
  • some new keyboard shortcuts has been added : ctrl+space for switching between the editor and the embedded pdf viewer and ctrl+>/ctrl+< for indenting/unindenting the selected text.
  • the obsolete "export to html" command has been removed (for packagers : the files "next.gif", "next_d.gif", "prev.gif", "prev_d.gif", "psheader.txt", "style.css", "up.gif" and "up_d.gif" in the "utilities/" directory have been deleted and don't have anymore to be installed)
