An interactive, integrated implementation of the TeX typesetting language, Textures is most commonly used for producing scientific articles and textbooks. Textures is also an extraordinary tool for fine typography, database and catalogue publishing and automated document production.
What's New
Version 2.2.0b18:
  • Some significant bug fixes: A problem with MS-DOS EPSF illustrations was fixed, and the permissible depth of nested folders in the Inputs tree was increased to 99 levels, effectively removing the limit. Also, we fixed a bug that caused a (rare) crash when using Synchronicity on a new Typeset window. (Although very rare, this has by far been the most frequently reported crash in native Textures, i.e., we have had seven reports total. If you have a Textures crash, please report it to us, including the crash log; we used to offer a significant cash reward for reproducible crashes, and we hope to do so again!)

OK, now someone's trying to be funny (and succeeding). 2011, two years on, and we've progressed through another 6 builds, but who knows what's changed...

Hmm, maybe the progress is evident in the screenshots? Yep, making great progress there: hasn't anyone else worked out that 10.7 and MacOS 7.5 are the same thing yet? Seriously W T F...

Wow: who would have thought? 2.2 Beta in August of 2007 (tragically late to the party), and 2.2b11 in August 2009. Let's see: OS X was released in 2001: I've got it... textures is software made by Rip van Winkle.

Seriously though, I have some sympathy for the poor folk who coughed up for this thing in the hope that a decent product would emerge in a finite amount of time. Not looking good... What comes first: the heat death of the universe or Textures for OS X?

Or... you could just install TeXLive for nothing which comes with everything you need, including a choice of editors.

Read MacTeX where I put TeXLive. I've put it up as a suggestion.

Already in the Mac Classic times, I found that Textures was outrageously expensive for something build upon the free TeX engine. The interface was OK, but certainly not worth the $600-$700 it cost at the time, so I settled for the not-so-user-friendly but free UNIX alternatives.

Now they want to charge $100 for a beta OS X version that you cannot even try before buying, when there are truly excellent free alternatives (e.g. the award-winning TeXShop). They must be totally out of their mind.

1) This is not even a demo, if you don't consider only showing a window asking for your serial to be a demo. And no, there is no serial included in the downloaded package.

2) Why would I want to shell out 100 bucks if there's MacTeX out there for free, with a great editor such as TeXShop (or others)? Especially if I can't test it?

OK, consider my first point deleted; it's been tagged commercial.

Still, I'd like to know the benefits over free alternatives.
