An excellent editor: very feature rich, yet easy to use!

This is a wonderful application. A very simple new feature will make it perfect for me, and healthier for everybody. I would like that the background color in the pdf could be user selected. A non-white, appropriate background, will help to examine the pdf with less eye and mental tiredness. This should be very easy to implement (I hope!).
Thank you for the great job.

Hi Vicente, I think you should try F.lux: http://justgetflux.com
Awesome application to prevent your eyeballs from burning through your skull, so to say :)

Thanks, f.lux is a solution for regulating the the whole screen light in general. However, it is not a substitution for the suggestion: the possibility of choosing a background color in the pdf viewer.

Regarding the PDF viewer background. Again, the document background is always white by default with LaTeX, but you can easily change it. In your main file, you can put:

usepackage{xcolor}
pagecolor{black}

begin{document}
color{white}

.. usual text here...

end{document}

The 'xcolor' package supports many colours.

This was an interesting suggestion, and I will adopt it. However, it is still not perfect: each time I want to print the document, I have to remove those commands (to avoid printing also the background) and reintroduce them to continue the edition.

Can I make a couple suggestions? Is it possible to have any non-command text in math mode be a different color? Sometimes when I have several $'s in a line, it's hard for me to tell if I'm putting all the right things in math mode or all of the wrong things!

Also (and I don't know how difficult this would be) is it possible to have a "Close Environment" shortcut which when hit will identify the nearest begin{…} and will automatically insert a end{…} to match it at the current cursor location?

Thanks for fixing the cursor problem. Also, I'm not sure in which update this was handled, but I no longer have the PDF viewer hanging -- it would require that I restart the program every 15 minutes. I had to step away from using the program for a while because of that, but now it's working very well. Thank you for your efforts.

The difficulty with colouring between $$ is that it's expensive to figure out which is the start and end $. It means parsing the whole text. I had this in a very early beta but I took it out. Needs some thought to see how to do that.

Regarding having a 'close environment' command, that sounds possible and like a nice feature. I'll put it on the list.

On the face of it this seems like an awesome app, until I realised that it needs a separate TeX package of software totalling over 2 Gb! Why so big? Because it's basically a complete graphics and rendering engine that grew out of Unix but isn't optimised for OS X.

I'm a scientist and I'm familiar with and use some of the packages at work but I don't see this as a solution for the Mac environment. The TeX environment will never take advantage of OS X technologies as they evolve because it isn't dedicated to the Mac platform. I want software that's built with, for and uses OS X.

This software looks like it does an admirable job of being a front end for TeX but in the end that's all it is. Ultimately, if you write for work it's the content that's important. All the journals have staff that convert it in to publishable format.

There are several circles in which TeX is the primary means for scientific writing (mathematics for example). It's expected that in these groups that you have a full version of LaTeX installed, and for several journals, submission of tex code is expected.

You do need a good editor to be coupled with the TeX installation, which I find TeXnicle to be. It is a great solution for OS X.

For the built-in themes, you need to duplicate them before you can make changes. The built-in themes are not editable because they are overwritten by TeXnicle each time it launches.

This version looks really slick!

Question: The cursor is not showing up in the editor -- I can edit and everything works, but there is no cursor.

Thoughts?

TeXnicle is an awesome app. I have been trying various LaTeX IDEs for OS X, and always coming back to just using emacs. TeXnicle is the first graphical environment that I find really convenient. The live update is a killer feature.

In comparison, TeXmaker has memory leaks and was horrnedously slow on my larger documents, and looks rather bad on a HiDPI display; TeXshop has a bug that prevents changing the font color, so you can't have a dark theme, and it's a mess of floating windows; TeXworks looks the worse on a HiDPI screen, even the editor's font looks gross. It also uses floating windows.

All these competing programs may be older, but they all appear to me as less feature-rich than TeXnicle, or if some may have more bells and whistles, they are not necessarily the most useful ones.

TeXnicle nails what's most useful, while keeping a clean and organized interface. And I didn't hit a serious bug yet.

One of my favorite LaTeX apps! I just downloaded 2.06, though, and the editor window has no text… it's completely black. Everything was as expected in 2.05 just minutes earlier.

Hello, fist of all thanks for your app.
Trying it some times, I've o report a very annoying bug which still exist since several versions.

When a new version is available, I use the in-app update. But everytime, without any exception, it download the update, ask my password, then I click to install the update.....and it still stuck like this.

Every time, I need to kill he app's process. The strangest in that is that the app is updated (on next launch I own the new version), but it still everytime be stuck during the update process and needing to be kill bu hand...

Thanks for it !
