I have just downloaded TeXmaker ("a free, modern and cross-platform LaTeX editor for linux, macosx and windows systems that integrates many tools needed to develop documents with LaTeX, in just one application") and it has a built-in PDF-viewer which doesn't seem to work. When I make a document, save it, then press watch PDF, it says that the document can't be found. Does anyone know what the problem is and how to fix it?
In TeXmaker you can use the QuickStart menu item to easily create a new document with basic code in place (
Then you have to save the document, because it's quite hard to compile a file that hasn't got a filename.
Then you compile the file (use option PDFLaTeX) Then you click on 'View PDF'
Afterward you could change the behaviour of Quick Compile to run PDFLaTeX and show the resulting PDF automaticaly.
