LaTeX: 1) Texmaker Overview

LaTeX is a document preparation system that creates beautifully and consistently-formatted documents. It can be used for any document (articles, papers, letters, books) in any discipline, but is especially strong at typesetting mathematical formulae.

Texmaker Overview

Texmaker's default layout looks like the screenshot below. All of your text and markup code goes on the left, while a preview of your document is on the right. Similar to computer programming, a document must be compiled before you can see what your final document will look like. By default, Texmaker compiles your document into a PDF each time F1 is pressed.
