I currently work with Texmaker 3.5 on Windows 7, but after reading a comment on this question I decided to update my version of Texmaker.

However, the only way I found to do this is by uninstalling my current version and getting a recent one the Internet.

Is it the only way to upgrade my Texmaker? What about my User Commands, current settings and everything? Is there a way to automatically update Texmaker?

  • Are you using Linux? If yes, just download the new release and install it. It will overwrite the old one.

  • So, in this case you have to download the new version and install it.

  • Uninstalling it leaves all user settings on the computer, so the new install will find them.

  • You probably can export all of your user settings and then re-import them Commented Nov 30, 2013 at 16:57

Automatic Check for New version of Texmaker

  • Worked fine for me, thanks. From now on, does the automatic check also allows automatic update if a new version is found or is it only a check, as stated in the name?

  • @Kalissar I assume, It's only a check if a new version exists or not. Commented Nov 30, 2013 at 22:33
  • @gsamaras fixed
