A simple example to start with LaTeX

The best way to start writing LaTeX is to try a simple example, such as the following,

A simple LaTeX document
\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\begin{document}
Hello World!
\end{document}

The button will copy this file and allow you to paste into a new Texpad document window that can be opened by simply typing keys Cmd- n. Alternatively, if you have Texpad installed on the computer this page is being read on, simply press the icon in the toolbar of this example box. You may also download this example using .

Texpad will automatically typeset this document and produce a PDF for you,

To start writing your first document is as easy as that.
