Finding and fixing errors in your LaTeX source code couldn’t be easier in Texpad. Instead of exposing LaTeX’s sometimes cryptic console output, Texpad reads this for you and delivers it as a navigable list. This list may be found in the Issues tab of the typeset results pane in the Sidebar.
Each error displayed in the Error List table is categorised by their severity levels as shown below.
|The red triangles indicate the issues that are essential for obtaining a full PDF out of your LaTeX source code.|
|Yellow triangles indicate LaTeX warnings, such as those concerning missing packages.|
|Green errors are the very low level errors to do with layout perfections. Most users would choose not to pay attention to these.|
The level of detail you wish to see may be set in the Typesetting pane of the Preferences window.
If a typeset results in errors, the error list is automatically presented to you.
Clicking on an error will jump to the corresponding line in the editor. Locations in the code the error view jumps to are added to the forward/backward stacks, which means you can move back to the text you were editing by clicking on the Backward button.
Please note that for location jumping, Texpad relies on the raw error log of LaTeX tools, parsing whom is prone to inaccuracies. Please report any issues you encounter to the Texpad team so they can be fixed in a future version.
