visão geral

O WinEdt é um editor de texto poderoso e versátil para Windows, com uma forte predisposição para a criação de documentos [La] TeX. No entanto, não o próprio WinEdt não é um sistema TeX! Terá que descarregar e instalar um sistema TeX (gratuito) para Windows (MiKTeX ou TeX Live).

Como um editor, o WinEdt permite que explore sua interface predefinida e controlos gráficos intuitivos (todos personalizáveis). Se não está muito interessado na interface do mouse, não se preocupe: o WinEdt também oferece os meios para personalizar a sua interface de teclado, permitindo que use atalhos de tecla dupla que podem ser associados a qualquer item de menu.

Por padrão, o WinEdt é configurado para ser executado como um front-end para o MiKTeX ou o TeX Live. No entanto, é bastante simples definir um conjunto de acessórios completamente diferente.

new features

WinEdt 10.3 is now the official version of the program. It supports (customizable) auto completion and code folding, it is unicode/utf8-capable, and it integrates seamlessly with the latest accessories and TeX Systems (such as SumatraPDF viewer, MiKTeX and TeX Live). It has been extensively tested under Windows 10, 8 and 7 (32-bit and 64-bit) with different system dpi settings.

WinEdt is compatible with Windows High Contrast Schemes. It is compliant with Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act §1194.22. Furthermore, WinEdt is dpi-aware on a system level: it comes with high-quality graphic resources at different sizes and at startup it automatically adjusts its GUI to high-resolution displays (without stretched or blurred graphics and text)…

This version uses the powerful Uniscribe library in order to better handle Unicode and complex language processing (including support for bidirectional text). It also contains improved integration with the latest versions of MiKTeX (including proper support for MiKTeX’s “Install packages on demand” feature when running TeX accessories in WinEdt console).

Major new features in WinEdt 10:

  • The major new feature in this version is the ability to handle bidirectional text (Arabic or Hebrew) and improved support for some complex unicode scripts (such as Thai). The use of MS Uniscribe library in WinEdt’s text processing engine is instrumental for this functionality (also the main reason why this version doesn’t run on Windows XP that does not support unicode script tags)…
  • The [UNICODE] section has plenty of new properties pertaining to the use Uniscribe library including some pretty fancy formatting options and mixing of fonts as highlighting attributes. These features are by default enabled for HTML mode. Check the new HTML project samples in Document -> Samples -> www Menu to see this functionality in action…
  • Document Tabs now allow an extra 0/1 property SHOW_HINTS. When enabled the full path and filename of a document is displayed as a hint when mouse pointer hovers over the tab. Document Tab hints are by default enabled.
  • An “old” problem with MiKTeX’s “Install Packages on Demand” functionality when running console applications inside WinEdt console has been fixed (regardless of whether the packages are installed on user or system level with UAC and regardless of MiKTeX asking for conformation or not). It turns out that MiKTeX’s accessories (except TeXify) cannot initiate download and installation of missing packages with any kind of prompt if the process was created within invisible (hidden) console Window (it is not clear why: a bug in MiKTeX). However, the way around this problem is NOT to create (and then hide) an external console Window at all. Simple enough, once you find out what exactly is the matter…
  • PDF macros no longer use DDE for SumatraPDF. Using the command line switch -forward-search is faster and more reliable. Using a command line switch (if it exists) is always preferable (simple is better). Besides DDE does not (and will not) support Unicode!
  • There are 32-bit and 64-bit versions of WinEdt 10 available. Users with 64-bit Windows can install either. Configurations and functionality of both versions are identical. The only difference is that WinEdt.exe is compiled as a native 32-bit or 64-bit Windows application, respectively. In the long run all applications will use a 64-bit platform but currently 32-bit applications run well on 64-bit Windows and not all applications offer a stable 64-bit version yet… 64-bit applications can launch 32-bit ones and vice versa. That’s why both versions of WinEdt will work with either 32-bit or 64-bit version of other applications…
  • And there is more… As always, plenty of work has gone into this version of WinEdt and every aspect of the code, documentation, and default settings has been revised and improved for this release. See WinEdt 10 Change Log below for details…

about winedt

WinEdt is a powerful and versatile text editor for Windows, with a strong predisposition towards the creation of [La]TeX documents. Do not, however, mistake WinEdt itself for a TeX system! You’ll have to download and install a (free) TeX system for Windows (MiKTeX, or TeX Live). The Downloads page of this site has more information on WinEdt, TeX, and links to other programs needed to make TeX operational on the Windows platform. The new Quick Guide should be consulted for hints on proper installation and optimum operation of the program…

Hint: For legacy reasons WinEdt by default features a large 2-row toolbar with interface to numerous TeX accessories and previewers (as still used by many long-time users). Through the Options menu it is easy to switch to one of the predefined 1-row toolbars. For most users this is a better starting point (it can be further customized as explained in WinEdt Documentation and Quick Guide)…

As an editor WinEdt allows you to exploit its intuitive predefined interface and graphic controls (all customizable). If you are not too keen on the mouse interface, don’t worry: WinEdt also offers the means to customize its keyboard interface, allowing you to use double keystroke shortcuts that can be associated with any menu item…

WinEdt is by default configured to run as a front end for MiKTeX or TeX Live. However, it is quite straightforward to define a completely different set of accessories. By default, Options -> Configurations Menu already contains a few alternative configurations.

WinEdt’s Menu contains plenty of useful commands, and many are associated with Shortcuts. It is strongly recommended that you take your time and “walk” through the menu. If you don’t know what is there you won’t know how to use it. For example, it is easy to move a selected block of text left or right or insert or remove comments in front of selected lines. It also easy to toggle Upper/ Lower Case, etc… The default Edit menu contains items like this and the most commonly used of them are associated with simple shortcuts.

Working on TeX Projects

Below is the “standard” WinEdt showing one of the samples bundled in with WinEdt for demonstration purposes (see Documents -> Samples Menu):

The multi-document TeX file, Thesis.tex, has been set as the Main File. The Tree/ Navigation Bar (on the left) gets updated accordingly. Note the drop-down menu in the button that starts TeX: the default compiler can be changed if you wish. Here we see that the TeX compiler gets executed in WinEdt’s Console, docked at the bottom (a few more words on this below).

When you set up your project it is important that you set the Main File and build the project tree. The items in the Project Menu (or the associated tool bar buttons) can be used to accomplish the task. If you don’t want the Tree/ Navigation Bar visible in your left panel, you should still set the Main File and let WinEdt build the Tree for purposes of automatic referencing. WinEdt builds the project tree based on Input Directives as specified in the Options Interface. Directives are mode-sensitive (since different rules apply to different document formats). These settings can be modified (with some care)…

WinEdt supports Active Strings. These are special strings defined in the Options Interface and associated with an action that is triggered when you type such a string. For example, in a TeX Document, typing \cite{} results in a popup menu containing available citations from the current .bib database file:

Pressing the Enter Key will insert the selected citation, while ESC closes the interface without taking any further action. Typing a comma allows you to enter multiple-citations. Double-clicking on an item displays its record in the .bib file.

There are plenty of active strings defined but not necessarily enabled in the default settings. Thus, depending on your style of editing, you may want to enable more such responses (e.g. automatic insertion of closing brackets). For example, if you type \begin{proof}} in a TeX document the active string “\begin{?}}” kicks in and automatically completes your environment by inserting a properly indented “\end{proof}” and placing the cursor in the middle… Similarly, “\begin{?}>” allows you to change the name of the current environment (you are prompted for a new name and both \begin and \end are properly updated).

A different set of active strings is defined for HTML documents. In particular, >> and << are useful and the second one (which closes HTML environments) is quite “addictive”…

You don’t have to be an expert in WinEdt’s Macro language to enable or disable such responses or even to add more. Base your own custom responses on the existing examples in the Options Interface…

WinEdt by default executes Console Applications (such as TeX) in its own console. The console can process output from and input to the application that is currently running in it. Macro scripts that control the flow of execution have been carefully prepared and tested and although advanced users can modify them (see Exec folder) it is unlikely that new users will have to modify any macro scripts. The first Page of the Executions Modes Interface (Options Menu) provides a GUI where you can enter any extra switches or change any other (common) aspect of the execution to your liking:

Troubleshooting and Support

WinEdt 10 has been thoroughly tested on all (non-legacy) Windows platforms (especially on Windows 10). It has proved to be very stable and reasonably fast. However, should you encounter a bug or (god-forbid) experience a crash, please send me a report containing as many details as possible. I’ll do my best to track down the problem and fix it for the next release.

WinEdt’s Menu Items (and associated toolbar buttons) are context-sensitive. They are disabled unless the action makes sense in the current context. For example, TeX Compiler is only enabled if your current document (or Main File) is a TeX document. Similarly, PDF or DVI Viewer are only enabled if the associated .pdf or .dvi file exists. This is a feature and not a bug since the action would fail, anyway.

WinEdt does its best to automatically detect your TeX System and Accessories (such as PDF Viewer). However, should automatic detection fail, it is easy to manually configure WinEdt to find your TeX System or any problematic accessory. In Options Menu, start the Execution Modes Interface. Entering the location of TeX Root folder is pretty much all that has to be done (no need to modify any macro scripts):

This same interface can be used to diagnose your system, fine-tune the execution of console applications (such as TeX), and more… Click on the Help button in the interface for all the details!

Graphics inclusion in LaTeX documents is not a WinEdt-related issue, and you’ll be wasting your (and our) time in writing with such questions. That said, the sample LaTeX Demo, included under Documents Menu -> Samples, illustrates and describes the proper way of going about it. Assuming that you have properly installed your MiKTeX and Ghostscript, the sample compiles into dvi, ps, or pdf by any available procedure in the default settings (try it!). The LaTeX Demo also contains useful hints when it comes to TeX and international characters and other [La]TeX related issues. Still, if you need more help you’ll have to consult the resources and documentation on www.tug.org, where you’ll also find recommended literature that will make your TeX-ing enjoyable and stress-free…

If you have trouble setting up WinEdt for a particular task, first read the relevant information in WinEdt’s Documentation, Help Menu and Configuration Wizards. If all this proves to be insufficient to address your problem, consult the section on “Mailing List and Support” and proceed accordingly…
