I was wondering if there is any software tool that acts as a common word editor and it outputs LaTeX code. Some time ago I heard there were some software tools that did that? does anybody knows any of these?

    LyX, Bakoma TeX, Scientific Word do something like that. – Torbjørn T. Jun 30 '14 at 19:04
  • There is a list of editors you can look at; some provide this functionality. – Werner Jun 30 '14 at 19:05
  • I think Bakoma TeX, pandoc are the commercial and open source ones out there but if you feel adventurous you can do stuff like tex.stackexchange.com/questions/140195/… – percusse Jun 30 '14 at 19:06
  • Some editors as Gummi have a preview window, so while you write LaTeX code on the left, you can see the result on the right in almost real time. Actually I prefer this to any WYSIWYG that hide the LaTeX code and hope the best, but anyway LyX is a very good free midpoint option to star. – Fran Jun 30 '14 at 20:19
