Review

TeXworks is a utility designed to allow users to work with TeX files. With this tool, you will be able to create and edit LaTeX documents. The program 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 via scripts. TeXworks is distributed as an open-source project, making it completely free. It is made available for multiple operating systems including Mac OS X, Windows and Linux distributions.

You can use TeXworks to generate PDF types of files. The utility includes a PDF viewer which offers the possibility of previewing the output.

Integrated templates allow users to quickly create basic LaTeX documents, Beamer presentations and XeLaTeX files.

The built-in search function includes support for regular expressions.

Overall, this is powerful and flexible TeX editor. But considering that this typesetting system is mainly used for creating academic papers, the range of user appeal is quite limited.
