Organiser in Texpad macOS
This article concerns the

On macOS, it is the initial window you see when you launch Texpad, or click on the Texpad icon in your desktop Dock.


It is also accessible via Ctrl-Cmd-T. The Organiser provides an easy access to basic file & project features in Texpad.

The left hand side will indicate basic version information just below the Texpad logo, something you may have to quote when emailing us with a support question. Below that, you will find three panes:

  • Documents You may create new documents and open existing ones right from the Organiser, as well as access three most recent documents you’ve worked on.

  • Account This section allows you to sign in to your account. This allows you to work on your Texpad Connect projects. If you own a licence that was directly bought from us, signing in to your account will also authenticate your copy of Texpad on the current machine. This saves entering the licence key in the next pane.

  • Licence This pane allows you to enter the licence key. This pane is only visible if you purchased your licence directly from us. If you downloaded the app from Apple’s App Store, you will not see this pane.

The right hand side contains the following panes,

  • Recent Documents This is a table listing the most recent documents you’ve opened in Texpad.

  • Connect Projects When signed into your account via the left hand side pane, you will find all projects owned by you or visible to you in this pane.

  • File Accessibility If your app is downloaded via Apple’s App Store, you will also find a File Accessibility pane that will allow you to manage what files and folders you’ve given Texpad permission to open. See docs/apps/getting-started/platform-specifics/sandboxing for more on this.
