Open Source LaTeX Editor for Windows – TeXnic Center


TeXnicCenter is a feature rich and easy-to-use integrated environment for creating LaTeX documents on the Windows platform. Its powerful editor and its tight integration with the LaTeX environment helps you to concentrate on just the content of your document! TeXnicCenter is Free Open Source Software (GPL).

LaTeX is not a wordprocessor but a typesetting system that achieves beautifully typeset documents without any deeper typographic knowledge. If you are not aware of Latex, then I would recommend, you read this article on introduction to LaTeX.!

Whats good about TeXnicCenter?

The full power of  TeXnicCenter comes from its tight integration with the other components involved in the process of writing, building and viewing LaTeX documents. With TeXnicCenter you get a central user interface that allows you to control all the other tools. And all this packeted in a comfortable and modern user interface. TeXnicCenter has been downloaded more than 1,000,000 times and is the best choice for LaTeX authors working on the windows platform!

You often have to create new LaTeX documents? You will love TeXnicCenter. Its powerful template mechanism allows you to define document templates once and create new documents based on these templates by simply choosing the ‘New’ option from the ‘File’ menu. The COM-Plug-In mechanism allows every one to implement document wizards. Some quite useful wizards are already available on the internet. You also have options to easily add any technical character (as shown below)

Instead of having to use several different tools like i.e. an editor for writing the document and the LaTeX command line tools for building them, TeXnicCenter provides all necessary tools from within its powerful user interface. The powerful LaTeX editor including syntax highlighting, auto completion, realtime spell checking, dynamic word wrapping and a lot more makes it a joy to enter and maintain your texts. Tons of predefined text snippets and LaTeX commands available from the menus and the toolbars make it needless to search the LaTeX reference. (you can see the screenshots below on Auto completion and Spell check)

The project support in conjunction with the sophisticated structure parser helps you to always keep the overview of your whole document, even if it is spread about several files and contains hundreds of pages: The structure parser always shows the document structure and jumping to another section or inserting references just requires a mouse click.

The flexible and fully configurable build system makes it easy for you to build you document’s output using any target format you like. The possibility to define as much output profiles as needed enables you to quickly change between i.e. DVI, PDF or PS output. Direct support for MakeIndex and BibTeX and the flexible post processor mechanism make it easy to build any tool chain you can think of.

Starting the build of your document just requires you to hit one key or choose the relevant menu item. TeXnicCenter will parse LaTeX’s log output and highlight box errors, warnings and errors. With just a mouse click you can jump to the relevant positions in your source text. Though TeXnicCenter’s user interface with all its menus, toolbars and sidebars provides what you might expect from a Windows application, we also ensured, that it is fully usable via keyboard, to provide you quick access to all features. To make your work even more productive, you can customize all shortcuts and toolbars to your needs!
