LaTeXiT for Mac 2021 full offline installer setup for Mac
Should LaTeXiT for macOS be categorized, it would be an equation editor. This is not the plain truth since LaTeXiT is "simply" a graphical interface above a LaTeX engine. However, its large set of features is a reason to see it as a text editor; this is the goal in fact.
Balking is forgiven. This is to get rid of that burden that the app was created. With the tool, you only focus on your equation. The result is automatically cropped and you can drag and drop it in any application, in the desired format (certainly PDF).
You are maybe familiar with the LaTeX language. Then you are given a great power to compose equations, from the simplest to the most complex ones, with a perfect result. But to be honest, you don't really want to go though all of the following steps just to illustrate a document:
- create a tex file with its preamble,
- compile this file,
- crop the result,
- insert that part in your document,
- delete or backup the files you have just used,
- restart from the beginning if you want to modify a little thing in the equation.
Even if LaTe XiT for Mac simplifies the whole process of "latexizing" you do not lose control over the advanced uses of the LaTeX engine. You can still select the LaTeX engine, include packages, change the preamble, use scripts… The graphical interface makes it possible to hide that to the beginner, but a fine grained customization is never far away.
