Texmaker is a powerful LaTeX editing application that incorporates a wide range of tools into a user-friendly and intuitive graphic interface. It includes everything users would normally expect from a modern editor such as code folding, code completion, a spell checker and more.

Within a multi-panel layout, users can easily view and navigate the structure through the components of a LaTeX file as well as quickly add symbols, delimiters, commands, all of which are comprehensively grouped.

Using pre-defined Quick Build commands, compilation literally takes just one click.

Built-in wizards will help users generate multiple standard codes, a feature which considerably saves time.

Texmaker includes a PDF viewer, complete with synctex support; this allows for automatic synchronization between the LaTeX file and the PDF file itself. It also provides means for locating errors within the code in the log file.

Application functions may be triggered by simple hotkey commands.

The application is thoroughly documented and also comes with an in-depth LaTeX reference to help users get started.

All this is available at no cost which should attract users' appeal.
