1. Configuring Texmaker

Before using Texmaker, you must configure the editor and latex related commands via the "Configure Texmaker" command in the "Options" menu ("Preferences" under macosx).

1.1 Configuring the editor

Beforecompiling your first document, you must set the encoding used by the editor ("Configure Texmaker" -> "Editor" -> "Editor Font Encoding"). Then, you should use the same encoding in the preamble of yours TeX documents (example : \usepackage[latin]{inputenc}, if you use the "ISO-8859-1" encoding for the editor)

1.2 Configuring the latex related commands

Texmaker can't compile yours documentsif the paths to the LaTeX related commands are wrong.
The default settings should work with the recent and standard LaTeX distributions, but you should have to modify them ("Configure Texmaker" -> "Commands"). To change a command, just click on the button at the end of the corresponding line and select the command in the file browser : texmaker will adapt automatically the syntax of the command.The % character represents the name of the file without the extension and the @ character will be replaced by the current line number.

1.3 Configuring the spell checker

The spell checker uses the (version 2.x) dictionaries. Only GPL french, british, deutch, spanish and italian dictionaries are distributed with Texmaker.
Users can download others dictionaries here :
To configure the spell checker : "Configure Texmaker" -> "Editor" -> "Spelling dictionary" -> click on the button at the end of the line to select the dictionary with the file browser.
Warning : spell checking starts at the cursor position and not at the beginning of the document.
During typing, if there is an error, the word is underlined by ared underline. A right-click on the word opens a contextual menu in which there are some replacement suggestions. Click on the desired word to make the replacement.

2. Editing a TeX document

2.1 Usual commands

The standard commands (cut, copy, find...) can be launched via the "Edit" menu and the "Edit" toolbar.

2.2 Setting the preamble of a TeX document

To define thepreamble of your document, you can use the "Quick start" wizard ("Wizard" menu).
This dialog allows you to set the main features of your document (class, paper size, encoding...).
Note : You can add other options by clicking the "+" buttons. All yours settings are recorded.
You can also type your own preamble model in the editor : with the "Copy/paste" or "Save As" commands, you can use it...
