What is TeXworks editor?
TeXworks is a program that supplies the necessary GUI for those working with the typographical TeX system from Donald Knuth. Jonathan Kew, who developed TeXworks as well as another TeX application, XeTeX, has stated that one of the goals for TeXworks was to broaden the availability of the TeX programs to users by making it compatible with different operating systems. The result was a cross-platform, open source toolkit application that could work without problems on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X systems.
The software comes with a manual file and several scripts as part of the package. Users can make use of languages like Python and Lua with it. Shortcuts can be customized for a more personalized and intuitive working environment and the application includes a command line parser. The primary output is intended to be in the PDF format.
Syntax coloring, Unicode support, spell checking for the source file, common document templates, comments, multiple undo operations, command auto-complete and output previews are all available. Program users are also shown the PDF output as soon as the application is closed and are given the ability to search for particular text when using the program’s PDF viewing capabilities.
