First Steps with LaTeXing!! ¶
Lean how to create a very simple document with LaTeXing. Please remember that this is not a place to lean LaTeX from scratch, you should still be able to follow the easy commands.
Create a new TeX File ¶
LaTeXing provides several templates for creating a new LaTeX file; the templates are very elementary and nothing fancy. You can easily add your own snippets, please check the ST website for more details. For this tutorial we choose the article template.
Save Document.tex ¶
The first thing we have to do is save the file as Document.tex; the extension must be typically, .tex. After saving, syntax highlighting will also become available, if enabled in the settings. Now we add some content to the file, which also includes a bibliography file.
Bibliography File ¶
Everything here is LaTeX standard and not really related to LaTeXing, so if you are not comfortable with this step please check any well-known LaTeX information website, such as wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX.
Fill a Reference ¶
After saving the bibliography file as References.bib at the same location as the Document.tex LaTeX file, you can use the LaTeXing fill command to choose your reference and select an item from the list.
After we have finished adding content and hitting
cmd + b on OS X (or the
equivalent key combination on other platforms), the LaTeX document will
compile. A log panel, located at the bottom of the screen, will appear and
show information such as compile time, errors, warnings, or badboxes, if
present. In this document everything is fine, so less than a second after, the
PDF document will be available.
The Working Directory ¶
The file structure is fairly simple, if you are using the output_directory_mode 0 the output folder is set to Output relative to the current working directory.
