I've been using LaTeX for a few weeks now, with TeXworks, and have found it quite frustrating.
I'm running MiKTeX 2.8 on Windows 7 x64 with TeXworks 0.3.
Reasons why I find TeX frustrating:
- Very difficult to install packages, and get them running in my code (sometimes impossible, i.e. with
- When I write code, it takes a while (dollar signs everywhere)
- I also end up using

Quick related question, how do I create macros? — Basically I want to replace
\im (implies) etc. It would also be helpful if I could define keyboard shortcuts for this type of thing (Alt+A =

$\exists$, Alt+. =
$\rightarrow$, Alt+, =
So which TeX, LaTeX or other package would you recommend I use for typesetting, with which IDE/text-editor?
Purpose: For typing up Discrete Mathematics Lectures (Graph Theory, Logic Theory etc.)
