TypeTeX and LaTeX editor

LEd (formerly LaTeX Editor) is a TeX and LaTeX editing software working under Microsoft Windows. It is a freeware product.

LEd offers a project manager, powerful editor, integrated spellchecker and thesaurus, build-in DVI viewer, descriptive hints for LaTeX commands, code complete mechanism, word wrapping, code folding, multilingual environment, and more. Nevertheless, LaTeX Editor is a small program.

System requirements[edit]

LEd works on Windows® 95/98/Me/NT4/2000/XP/2003 operating systems. LEd's capabilities vary according to the operating system used, e.g., Visual Styles from Windows® XP. It, however, works with almost full functionality also on Windows® 95.

The recommended system configuration is:

  1. 333 MHz processor,
  2. 64 MB RAM,
  3. 4 MB of disk space for the standard edition + space for projects (space occupation depends on the spellchecking and thesaurus dictionaries),
  4. Windows® 2000/XP/2003 operating system.

Compatible TeX distributions[edit]

LEd can be used with any TeX distribution, however its full functionality is available with a distribution based on TeXLive or MiKTeX. LEd has been tested to work correctly with:

  1. TeXLive 6,
  2. TeXLive 7,
  3. TeXLive 2003,
  4. TeXLive 2004,
  5. TeXLive 2005,
  6. MiKTeX 2.4,
  7. MiKTeX 2.5.
