A known problem for users migrating to Texpad from another editor is that when typesetting LaTeX throws errors related to the presence of non-ascii characters (for example é, ü and other accents).
This is usually because Texpad is set by default to use UTF-8 encoding for saving files, and users are often accustomed to older, obsolete encodings such as Latin-1 or MacOSRoman. To make LaTeX typeset correctly please replace any old inputenc or fontenc lines with the appropriate UTF-8 line.
If you have a large collection of TeX files files in a legacy encoding, then you may wish to swap Texpad to the older encoding rather than converting the files to the up to date UTF-8 encoding. To do this, close all files and navigate to the
You will need to find the correct encoding from the preferences in your previous editor, common choices are
Mac OS Romanif you are migrating from an macOS LaTeX editor such as TeXShop
WinLatin1if you are migrating from a Windows LaTeX editor
Please note that often you need to specify the font(output) encoding as well as the input encoding.
