Front-end LaTeX Editors

Distributions of LaTeX will sometimes include an editor.  However, working with LaTeX can be simplified and enhanced through the use of a front-end editor.  A number of different free editors are available.  Two popular editors are TeXstudio and Texmaker.

As an alternative, some web-based editors (Overleaf and Papeeria) are described on other tabs within this research guide.


For those who are submitting papers to peer-reviewed journals for review and publication, IEEE offers their IEEE LaTeX Analyzer tool to review your LaTeX file package for any discrepancies or errors that might delay the processing and publication of your paper.
