  1. ^'Source' means you see and edit the TeX source files. 'WYSIWYM' = What You See Is What You Mean, i.e. you see and edit formatted text. WYSIWYG means that see the output file automatically updated during the edit. Note that some PDF viewers (e.g. evince) automatically reload the PDF document when it is updated on the disk. So, any 'source' TeX editor can be turned into partial WYSIWYG editor by opening such a reader in an adjacent window.
  2. ^Not a full TeX editor. Only limited to math expressions only.
  3. ^Support for non-linux systems considered experimental.
  4. ^Notepad++ can execute Tex viewers
  5. ^Inverse search means that one can locate the relevant part of the source code from the viewer (e.g., double-clicking in dvi or pdf file brings up the appropriate line/paragraph in the latex code)
  6. ^On Windows some pdf viewers like Sumatra PDF or Adobe Reader don't use command line arguments for forward search, but the editor sends the document position to them using Dynamic Data Exchange
  7. ^Requires installation of extra package.
  8. ^A plug-in is required.
  9. ^LaTeX panel & Matrix panel
  10. ^Requires installation of extra package
  11. ^Starts up to previous state including the current editing point.
  12. ^RTL support means Right to Left language support.
  13. ^configurable as an option of the Emacs editor
  14. ^With usual section{} notation, Kile collapses equations and figures, but not sections. Collapsing of sections is possible with non-standard notation begin{section}{}...end{section}{}, but it eliminates sections from Structure View. An alternative possibility is bracketing sections with comments %BEGIN and %END.
  15. ^This will have to be set up manually.
  16. ^Provides a subset of the regular expression syntax implemented in the Perl scripting language, but fully supports Unicode ( ’ Issue 194: Add advanced regexp options to Find/Replace )
  17. ^Template file in resource directory ( ’ Documentation of the code completion feature )
  18. ^Starts up to previous state including the current editing point.
  19. ^RTL support means Right to Left language support.
