Sometimes creating a LaTeX file can be a frustrating experience not only for beginners but even for the advanced user. Thanks to its many useful features and one-window design with a straightforward interface, TeXnicle for Mac can ease the process. It adds a bit more flexibility to the document design and layout and can help you organize and edit multiple files.
This free program requires no installation and is usable as soon as it's downloaded. It's stable, smooth, and doesn't crash. The interface of TeXnicle for Mac is divided into three sections. The left section offers an outline view, the middle section contains the editor, and the right section displays the PDF viewer. The program's default syntax highlighting seems a bit ethereal but you can change the default colors and customize the syntax highlighting to your own preferences. Adding the files to the project is very easy, as you just have to drag and drop the file from the Finder or use the context menu. There is a built-in code library where code snippets are stored and can easily be dragged into your current document, which is quite useful. All available features perform very well, and they are easy to find and help you manage your projects. Additionally, the developer offers a user manual on their official Web site to help you find your way easier if you're a beginner.
If you have many LaTeX projects that include several files, then TeXnicle for Mac may be a good option to start with. With its one-window design and user-friendly interface this program delivers what it promises.
