What is TeXworks?
TeXworks is a freeware, open-source, multilingual application that serves as a LaTex editor designed for building TeX front-end software that can be used for all major desktop OSs, particularly GNU/Linux, MS Windows, Mac OS X, and other X11-based operating systems. It is an environment or a graphical user interface to the typesetting system TeX and its extensions LaTeX, ConTeXt, and XeTeX. This software was developed by Jonathan Kew who modeled it on Dick Koch’s award-winning application software TeXShop for Mac OS X to lower the entry barrier to the TeX world for those using desktop operating systems other than Mac OS X. It requires a TeX-Installation: TeX LiveMiKTeX or MacTeX.
TeXworks has a Unicode-based, TeX-aware editor, integrated PDF viewer, and a clean, simple interface accessible to casual and non-technical users. The workflow is PDF-like as it uses XeTex and pdfTeX as the typesetting engines while the default output is in PDF format. It features a PDF viewer, so users don’t have to open other external programs such as Adobe Reader to view the output. It also supports preview synchronization – a feature based on SyncTeX.
