# pdflatexify in TeXworks

In my installation of TeXlive + TeXworks, it has latexmk, but I didn't like latexmk, because when only a single pdflatex is needed, it does some multiple runs. In addition, latexmk sometimes does not run multiple times, even when necessary, and latexmk is slower than pdflatex for a single run.

How can I configure a typeset menu that does simply pdflatex + bibtex + pdflatex + pdflatex?

Why not use the regular pdflatex most of the time, and just use latexmk when you want to run bibtex? –  Alan Munn Jul 6 '11 at 19:13
@Alan It might be the best way. –  FEQ Jul 6 '11 at 19:21
@Jasper I maybe had to say, latexmk is slower than the simple pdflatex even for a single run. Even further, sometimes I needed to force bibtex, when only bib file is modified. I can't make it re-happen now, but some weird cases happened. –  FEQ Jul 6 '11 at 19:26
@Jasper I don't agree; I find latexmk useful in the last stages of document preparation, but not as my everyday typesetting script. Most of the time when you are recompiling a document you don't care much about resolved references etc. but more about whether the content is correct in other ways. And latexmk does seem to be slower overall. –  Alan Munn Jul 6 '11 at 19:30
This question is a bit confusing: You mention that you don't like the fact that latexmk does multiple runs, yet the scenario you provide has 4 runs of pdflatex. –  Peter Grill Oct 6 '11 at 3:21
