"Indispensable for me."

July 16, 2011  |  By doneck--2008

 |  Version: TeXShop 2.43

Pros

Easy to use and superior to other LaTeX compilers that I have used. The .tex and .pdf files are both on the screen side by side. And it is free!

Cons

None: the latest update removed my sole previous quibble related to using the Find/Replace command..

Summary

It is a gem.

"Better than Word, rocks for math."

April 19, 2010  |  By epidermus

 |  Version: TeXShop 2.33

Pros

pdf to tex editor command-click feature is a lifesaver, no unnecessary bells and whistles

Cons

Sometimes the pdf to tex editor command-click feature doesn't work or points to the the wrong document region entirely.

Summary

TexShop hides all the the byzantine tex distributions and packages and lets me typeset easily and effectively.

"Best TeX Editor I have ever used"

March 23, 2006  |  By cwasmer

 |  Version: TexShop 2.0.9b

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I just finished my diploma thesis using TeXShop and everything just worked perfectly. The only slight problem might be the quite excessive RAM usage (200-400MB here). This was no problem for me but might be for other users.
Nice Work - Thank You very much!!!

"Incredible tool for copy editors!"

January 22, 2006  |  By EmuBite

 |  Version: TexShop 2.0.8

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I just started using TexShop today, and I must say that I'm impressed. I'm tasked with copy editing for a large scientific journal. Many of the articles we publish are submitted in TeX format. Until today, we had to submit all rewrites to our typesetter to manually edit. However, TexShop has made it a breeze for me to edit our papers in-house. We're saving thousands of dollars in the process!

Bravo, TexShop developers. Thank you for a great tool!

"Must try softwar"

January 13, 2006  |  By Myron Gochnauer

 |  Version: TexShop 2.0.8

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
TexShop is a nearly perfect, no-nonsense editor and TeX/LaTeX front end. If you are a beginner with LaTeX, go to the TexShop website and follow the instructions for getting started. TexShop itself is an intuitive text editor that is reasonably well-developed and extremely stable. It is not as adaptable or powerful as WinEdt in the Windows environment, or Emacs in any environment, but it does what it says it will do with a minimum of fuss... and it does it "right out of the box". The program is slowly becoming more sophisticated, but since it is free there is no commerical pressure to quickly add features in order generate upgrade fees. As a result, the program seems to be closer to being bug free than any commercial editors or wordprocessors I've used. Would that all software were as thoughtfully designed and carefully developed!

"The reason to upgrade to Tiger..."

May 09, 2005  |  By dada1958

 |  Version: TexShop 2.0.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
For me were the Quicksilver and TeXShop updates. Both required Tiger. So I went for it.
QS Labrador isn't that stable yet, though I have pretty much confidence in the developer.
TeXShop 2 is the ultimate Mac OS X Tiger application imho. It's working perfectly well with Spotlight and after having read an article on daringfireball.net, Dictionary is functioning as well.

"best latex front-end"

September 15, 2004  |  By Dana Nau

 |  Version: TexShop 1.35e

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is the best latex front-end I've had on any platform, and it was invaluable to me when I was writing my book. I'm grateful to Richard Koch for doing it.

Does anyone know the reason for the succession of 1.35[abcde] releases over the last few weeks?

What's new in version 1.14
Version 1.14 of TeXShop contains a panel of common Latex symbols and commands; clicking on a symbol in the panel inserts the corresponding text into the source document. This panel is the work of Geoffroy Lenglin, who just finished a masters degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT. Version 1.14 remembers tab indents, so if a line starts with several tabs, then new lines will start at that position until the tabs are cancelled. This change is due to Nicolás Ojeda Bär in Argentina, who just graduated from high school. Version 1.14 automatically adds \chapter and \section entries to the Tags menu.

Version 1.14 sets the type of saved files to TEXT so the spelling program Excalibur can open them. It fixes an important bug which caused temporary files to accumulate in the /tmp directory until the machine was restarted. It has improved localizations in Spanish by Juan L. Varona, Italian by Giuseppe Carlino, and German by Martin Kerz, and a new Portuguese localization by Paulo T. Abreu. It has a shortened LatexTemplate made possible by improvements in the graphicx package.

TeXLive-teTeX is a new distribution of teTeX. It is partly based on TeXLive, which is the TeX distribution produced by the TeX Users Group. Gerben Wierda writes "I have moved to TeXLive as my source for the programs. There is very little difference between recent teTeX-beta and TeXLive as teTeX draws from TeXLive. So my distribution now draws directly from TeXLive for the programs and uses the latest teTeX-texmf distribution as a basis for the texmf tree. TeXLive and teTeX-beta are somewhat less stable than stable-teTeX, but stable-teTeX is very out of date. So far, experience has shown that there are not very many problems with TeXLive."
