WinEdit Latex Editor

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

A friend of mine mentioned they use WinEdit to originate LaTex math documents.  I checked and it appears it does not give a WSIWYG preview or working environment.  I will have to install to verify.

From Wikipedia

WinEdt is a shareware Unicode (UTF-8) editor and shell for Microsoft Windows. It is primarily used for the creation of TeX (or LaTeX) documents, but can also be used to edit HTML or any other type of text file. It can be configured to run as a front-end for a variety of TeX systems, including MiKTeXfpTeX and TeX Live. WinEdt's highlighting schemes can be customized for different modes and its spell checking functionality supports multi-lingual setups, with dictionaries (word-lists) for many languages available for downloading from WinEdt's Community Site. It supports DVI and PDF workflow.

Secrets to successfully using

  • A set of {} curly brackets around things that do not properly render are invisible and give the code a signal character to know how to render.  An example is greek character mu.  I found this would not render in certain positions because the code did not know when the character started. However {mu} did render.
