Native macOS app with efficient LaTeX environment. Feature-laden, not feature-cluttered.
Projects of all sizes
Simply open your main LaTeX file and let Texpad load your full project, including sub-files, bibliographies and stylesheets therein.
Texpad's editor is LaTeX and BibTeX aware and highlights your code to make it easy to write it. Bundled with Texpad are a number of themes that allow you to change the look of the editor. In addition to syntax highlighting, you can block comment/un-comment, block indent/un-indent and spell-check as you type.
Use the magic of auto-complete to write faster and with fewer LaTeX errors. Texpad autocompletes all common TeX commands and autofills \ref and \cite commands with the labels and cite keys defined elsewhere in your document.
Texpad keeps your workspace uncluttered by hiding the intermediate files and allows setting various LaTeX and BibTeX options, all through a simple settings interface.
Quick LaTeX Reference
Texpad's autocomplete window also acts a quick reference on LaTeX commands, as well as showing you context information on all labels and citation keys.
Texpad's live typesetter TexpadTeX renders the PDF output from your LaTeX source code as you type.
Troubleshooting LaTeX errors made easy
Texpad simplifies LaTeX's cryptic error logs by presenting a simple, navigable list of errors that you can jump to, fix, and carry on writing.
Integrated PDF viewer
Quickly switching to PDF after typesetting lends to a smooth workflow, where the editor and the output work in tandem.
Never lose track of where you are in a large project by synchronising between the document outline, the editor and the PDF viewer.
Thanks to the wonderful help of Texpad users, Texpad is now localised into languages other than English, with more languages being added
This is just the beginning, and soon we'll be adding more languages. If you wish for Texpad to be talking your language and have a few hours
to spare, please be in touch with us.
Markdown is treated at equal footing as LaTeX, with PDF output as well as document outline.
Outline view makes Texpad perfect for large documents. When you open a LaTeX file in Texpad, it will scan through to find document sections across all your files and list them in a table so you can jump to a section quickly.
The Global Search and Replace feature presents all instances of your search text in the source that you can readily jump to and forth between. This is particularly useful for large, multi-file projects such as theses, lecture notes and books.
The outline also lists any TODOs you've entered in the code as reminders, providing quick and easy access to them.
Choice of Typeset Engines
One of Texpad's design principles has been to take the pain out of interacting with your LaTeX distribution. LaTeX, pdfLaTeX, Ghostscript, XeLaTeX, LuaLaTeX, pLaTeX all work with no configuration.
Multi-file LaTeX project
Easily manage large projects with multiple files.
.tpbuild scripts let you cater for your own special typesetting needs. Texpad ships with a few out-of-the-box (Sweave, ePub publishing, Plain TeX) and you may add your own. Learn more.
Multiple LaTeX Distributions
Managing and upgrading LaTeX distributions is often not without pain. Now with Texpad switching between multiple distributions is as easy as selecting one from the dropdown list in Preferences.
Beautiful, Native UI
We've designed the UI to meet high expectations of Mac users. Starting from the Welcome window itself, it's all streamlined, distraction-free and automates common tasks accompanied by hotkeys for fast access.
Open your recent documents straight from the Texpad Organiser window or create new ones from standard and custom templates.
Snippets -- LaTeX code blocks
Snippets are little pieces of LaTeX code designed to aid fast editing of documents. In a typical Texpad style of course, they interact smoothly with the editor via hotkeys and are aware of any text that's currently selected.
An example would be selecting a piece of text and pressing Ctrl-Shift-B to put the bold markers around it. Snippets are totally configurable and may be added, deleted and assigned new keys as needed.
