First, I use Windows XP and MiKTeX.

As a thoroughly new-user of LaTeX, I don't know how to modify LaTeXTools.sublime-settings to make the ST3 comply the LaTeX code. Even after reading the introduction on https://github.com/SublimeText/LaTeXTools, I try to modify the file as follows:

Firstly, in the platform_settings section:

enter image description here

secondly,in the builder_settings:

enter image description here

but it still doesn't work!

And I know the LaTeXTools.sublime-settings itself has some explanations, but I can't understand it mainly because I'm not a geek or a coder. I don't dare to modify it.

Moreover,in any cases when I tap the Ctrl+B,the complying result is always like this:

enter image description here

even without the UTF-8 (actually I don't know anything about UTF-8,but I still install the ConvertToUTF8 package)

enter image description here

  • After "miktex" there shouldn't be a comma.

I'm the author of the LaTeXTools plugin. Your output is very strange: when you type Ctrl-B, the plugin code isn't even run: what you are showing, for some reason, is the build output for python files!

I am afraid you may have a configuration issue with Sublime Text. Also, how did you install the plugin? Did you use Package Control? Finally, make sure that, when you open a tex file, the word "LaTeX" is displayed in the status bar (bottom part of the ST window), on the right.

  • Yes I make a mistake. may I give you a suggestion about the readme in GitHub ? the fifth paragragh in the Requirements and Setupsection, you should explain in detail ,for example tell the user to tap Preferences->package settings->LaTeXTools->Reconfigure LaTeXTools and migrate settings in order to create the LaTeXTools.sublime-settings file. Yes ,actually I didn't create the file and consequently fail. May 10, 2014 at 10:35

    Thanks for the feedback. I hope all is working now. BTW, the Requirements and Setup section does tell the user to generate the LaTeXTools.sublime-settings via the Command Palette (a standard Sublime Text feature)... But perhaps I should be even more explicit. May 10, 2014 at 22:08
  • (^__^)maybe there are scarcely new users like me.BTW the process is indeed long and you omit some parts to some extent which makes me confused . May 11, 2014 at 0:57
  • Sure, I understand. Thanks for the feedback! May 11, 2014 at 2:48
