Create a Collection
In a traditional LaTeX workflow, you would edit the LaTeX source in a text editor, compile the document every now and then, and check the effects of your changes in the DVI viewer. In Compositor the DVI viewer is the document editor ̵
No more tedious compilation runs. Compositor typesets and renders your LaTeX document on every single keystroke.
Compositor's WYSIWYG user interface offers a document outline, inspector panels, and other conveniences you would expect from a modern word processor. ] The app comes with its own LaTeX distribution built right in. No need to install any additional software just to get going. This is LaTeX without entry barriers.
Source Editing When You Need It
There will be situations where you want to directly access the underlying LaTeX source. Pressing Ctrl + S will open an inline source editor showing the LaTeX source behind the document region you are currently working on (often this will be the current paragraph). This should allow for a smooth migration experience to this new paradigm, even with commands or environments for which there is no dedicated graphical inspector (yet).
Automatic Package Installation
If your document uses LaTeX packages not bundled with the app They are automatically downloaded from CTAN.
Compatible with your Existing Work
Compositor reads and writes regular, plain text .tex files. This means it is compatible with your existing LaTeX documents. Also, there is no lock-in of any kind – you can switch between Composer and other tools at any time since there is no proprietary file format involved.
Note: current entry price of $ 19 will rise to $ 29 later this year, and to $ 39 some time next year
