2.12.6 27 Jul 2017

Fully-featured LaTeX editor.


Developer website: Benito van der Zander, et al.

TeXstudio is an integrated environment for writing LaTeX documents. Our goal is to make writing LaTeX as easy and comfortable as possible. Therefore TeXstudio has numerous features like syntax-highlighting, integrated viewer, reference checking and various assistants.

Easy Setup
  • Installers or packages available for Windows, Linux and (experimental) OS X
  • Portable USB version available
  • Automatic detection of MikTeX, TeX Live, Ghostscript, and Standardlatex
  • SVN support

Note: The OS X version is experimental. Since none of the currently active developers are using OS X, we cannot thoroughly test it. We do our best to also support OS X, but be prepared that there may be some issues.
