TeXstudio is a cross-platform open source LaTeX editor with an interface similar to Texmaker.

TeXstudio is an integrated writing environment for creating LaTeX documents that provides modern writing support, such as interactive spelling checker, code folding, and syntax highlighting. It does not provide LaTeX itself – the user must choose a distribution of LaTeX and install it first.

Originally called TexMakerX, TeXstudio was started as a fork of Texmaker that tried to extend it with additional features while keeping its look and feel. It runs on Windows, Unix/Linux, BSD, and Mac OS X systems.

Features [4][edit]

TeXstudio has many useful features needed to edit TeX/LaTeX source code, such as:[5][6]

  • Auto completion
  • Scripting support[clarification needed]
  • Assistants for images, tables, formulas (assistants offer GUI for visual and user-friendly creation of structures with complex code)
  • Drag and drop support for images
  • Template system[clarification needed]
  • Syntax highlighting
  • Spellchecker
  • Integrated PDF viewer
  • Live-updating inline preview for formulas and code segments
  • SVN support
  • integration with the BibTeX and BibLaTeX bibliographies managers
  • Export into HTML
  • Document lexical analysis (e.g. word count, word frequency count, phrase count)

History of TeXstudio[edit]

TeXstudio has been forked from Texmaker in 2009, because of the non-open development process of Texmaker and due to different philosophies concerning configurability and features. Originally it was called TeXmakerX because it started off as a small set of extensions to Texmaker with the hope that they would get integrated into Texmaker some day. While at some points you can still see that TeXstudio originates from Texmaker, significant changes in features and the code base have made it to a fully independent program.[7]
