Working with TeX documents

TeX document typesetting system. It is often used to typeset scientific or technical books and articles, usually with the LaTeX macro package.

Use this tag for general questions about working with TeX documents in Emacs. There are two modes for working with TeX documents:

  • The basic tex-mode package included in GNU Emacs. Use the tag for questions about this mode.
  • The more elaborate AUCTeX third-party package (included in XEmacs). AUCTeX provides more advanced features including syntax highlighting and completion of macros in third-party packages, better support for complex compilations, preview of mathematics, etc. Use the tag for questions about AUCTeX.

For questions about (La)TeX and companion tools that are not related to Emacs, see TeX - LaTeX Stack Exchange.
