TeXShop is a much more mature application, with a large user base and active development. Some advantages: • Macro editor that allows you to attach commands or menu items to arbitrary chunks of code • Palettes of commonly used symbols and constructs • Simple table input editor • Macro to paste spreadsheet cells from Excel/Numbers etc. As LaTeX tabulars • BibDesk integration (automatic insertion of citations when BibDesk is open) • Native integration with aspell The last two are very important for me.
I have a soft spot for the fourth, since I contributed the code.:-). I understand the reason for the development of TeXWorks, but don't see why they are trying to develop on OSX anyway. TeXWorks is modelled after TeXShop, but does not have its advantages, and has (in my opinion) serious flaws. • At one point, the pdf renderer in TeXShop was better than in TeXWorks, but that may have been fixed.
TeXworks is an application designed to allow users to work with TeX files. With this tool you will be able to create and edit LaTeX documents. The utility provides some of the most popular features found in multipurpose editors like syntax highlighting and the possibility of extending the program's set of functions. Download Freeware TeXworks for Mac OS X 0.3 r686. An environment for authoring TeX (LaTeX, ConTeXt, etc) documents, with a Unicode-based, TeX-aware editor, integrated PDF viewer, and a clean, simple interface accessible to casual and non-technical users. Microsoft Windows: TeXworks installer; Mac OS X: TeXworks disk images; GNU/Linux: Ubuntu, openSUSE, Debian, Fedora, Arch Linux; For the latest.
When I have both rendering the same file, the one in TeXShop is easier to read, but that may be contrast settings or something. • One reason for not giving TeXWorks a try is that the bright colors they use for icons annoys me. If you look at TeXShop, it looks professional, it has muted colors and buttons that are obvious but don't get in the way. I use TeXShop for hours on end, and if I had to look at such a UI disaster all of the time, I'd go looking for something else. • TeXShop has color highlighting of latex commands, and does brace completion (which is a lifesaver for me).
TeXWorks does not appear to have the first, though I don't know about the second. Even if TeXWorks eventually gains the advantages of TeXShop, I don't see any reason to change. TeXShop works well, and it has for years.
Again, I understand the reasoning for the development of TeXWorks, and I applaud it (even though I would have made some changes), I just don't see a reason to develop it for OS X as long as TeXShop is a viable alternative. Google Toolbar For Ie there.
New features and improvements: • Implement handling of links to external files in the PDF preview • Implement a simple screen calibration widget to allow adapting the PDF preview to the screen's resolution • Improve responsiveness when opening large documents • Use old content instead of rendering placeholers after a PDF was reloaded to facilitate seeing changes • Improve the usability of the 'Remove Aux Files. Dragon Dictation For Mac. ' The main focus of this release is a complete overhaul of the PDF previewer, featuring • Faster rendering • Major performance improvements at high magnifications • Continuous scrolling mode — no more abrupt jumps from one page to the next (the non-continuous mode is still available from the View menu) • Two-pages (spread) mode • Selecting and copying text out of a PDF • Going back to the previous view after clicking on a link (by pressing Alt+left arrow) In addition, several bugs were fixed and support for Mac OS X was improved by adopting Travis CI for building and deploying.
