TODOs are a great way of tracking what is left to finish a document. In Texpad, these are listed in the Sidebar of the project’s workspace in a pane with icon .

Syntax

There are two ways to add a TODO to this list.

  • Use a comment starting with todo: % todo ....
  • Or use package {\bf todonotes} that provides a \todo command: \todo{...}.

Example

An example document is given as follows.

Writing TODOs in Texpad
\documentclass[11pt,fleqn]{article}
\usepackage{todonotes}

\begin{document}

% todo add reference
% todo: add reference
\todo{Another task procrastinated.}
% TODO Finish this argument
% This is not a todo.
% TODO -- Finish this subargument

\end{document}

The TODOs pane

The sidebar pane carrying the icon icon displays the TODOs.

On macOS, the TODOs pane looks as follows,
