What is TeXwiz for Mac

TeXwiz is a document creation wizard for LaTeX documents that supports many of the extremely useful features provided by KOMA script. While most LaTeX editors have similar built-in wizards, they usually only provide very basic functionality and prepare documents most authors would be able to create by heart. The reason for this is probably that the programmer doesn't want to limit the writers to a specific layout - which is of course a possible approach. However, when writing LaTeX documents there are often several ways of doing things, but only one correct way. Therefore TeXwiz allows the user to set most of the options that have to be set in a majority of all documents and produces LaTeX code which is in compliance with two important publications about DOs and DON'Ts: LaTeX Sündenregister (in German) and the KOMA script documentation scrguien / scrguide (included in most LaTeX distribution).

Version: 1.0rc10
A very useful tool indeed for people who use TeX for all their documents. This is fast way of generating a template with all the attributes you need. The Mac OS X has room for improvement though: 1) the installer installs the app in the root directory. This is an absolute no-no in even in the UNIX world. The correct default path is /Applications. 2) the titlebar of the application is outside of the screen area. Qt seems to default to positioning the main window (sans title bar) at position 0,0... which means I lose my title bar and I can't move the window.
App requirements: 
  • Intel 32
  • Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later
  • Trolltech's Qt/Mac 3.3 C++ framework - a download link for a binary installer of Qt/Mac 3.3.4 (GPL/QPL edition) is provided with the installer
  • (te)TeX-installation
