The only latex I know how to use is from this site. I want to start turning my homework using LaTeX. What program should I get to do this? I have textworks but it does not show the output as I type. I love how we get a preview of what we are doing on this site. What should I use?
The LaTeX this site uses is mathjax. When you format documents in LaTeX it's different from the stuff you use here :P You'd need a TeX editor, check some here on this link. Don't know which one is the best since I don't work with latex documents. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_TeX_editors Maybe some online TeX editors: http://docs.latexlab.org/ https://www.sharelatex.com/
Is there a way to use mathjax to make documents? I've gotten pretty good at it and it does everything I need
Ok easy peasy it aint so bad ty @thomaster
Don't know. MathJax is designed for web browsers.
@e.mccormick can tell you everything about it :P
Well, only ones I know that do it as you type are the web based ones. When I use Texmaker I just click a build button every now and then to update the preview window.
The down side to many of the online ones is your documents are public unless you pay to subscribe. But the attached is all I have to do to preview it.
yeah im getting the hang of it now. ty
np. Have fun in \(\LaTeX\) land.
