Does anyone know what the default command for quick build in texmaker is?

I changed it before but now I want it back to default and I can't remember what it was.

  • Goto 'Options - Configure TeXmaker - Shortcuts - Menus - Tools' and customize it. – Ch'en Meng Dec 1 '13 at 6:13

    BTW, the default shortcut of quick build is F1. – Ch'en Meng Dec 1 '13 at 6:20

After a fresh install, the quick build is set to PdfLaTeX + View PDF as shown in the screenshot below for version upto 4.0.4):

In the Commands tab you can find the exact meaning of this combo. For reference, PdfLaTeX translates into:

pdflatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex

where % is replaced by the name of the master document (e.g. main.tex).

With Version 4.1 dated Oct 29 2013 the Quick Build Command has more options. F1 is the always shortcut keystroke to execute Quick Build in Texmaker which can be changed via Shortcuts menu in Configure Texmaker.
