Texmaker is a cross-platform open-source LaTeX editor with an integrated PDF viewer. Texmaker is entirely a Qt app. Texmaker is a free, modern and cross-platform LaTeX editor for Linux, macOS and Windows systems that integrates many tools needed to develop documents with LaTeX, in just one application. Texmaker includes unicode support, spell checking, auto-completion, code folding and a built-in PDF viewer with synctex support and continuous view mode. Texmaker is released under the GPL license.


The editor includes full Unicode support, inline spell checking, auto-completion, code folding and rectangular block selection. Regular expressions are also supported for the find-and-replace actions.

Texmaker includes wizards for the following tasks:

  • Generate a new document or a letter or a tabular environment.
  • Create tables, tabulars, figure environments, and so forth.
  • Export a LaTeX document via TeX4ht (HTML or ODT format).

Some of the LaTeX tags and mathematical symbols can be inserted in just one click and users can define an unlimited number of snippets with keyboard triggers.

Texmaker automatically locates errors and warnings detected in the log file after a compilation.

The integrated PDF viewer supports continuous, rotation and presentation mode. Direct and reverse synchronization between source TeX files and the resulting PDF file is supported via the SyncTeX support.

The Asymptote graphics language is also fully supported by Texmaker (for both editing and compilation).
