I have been using LaTexTools for a while, and it works fine. After installing the public beta of Yosemite, Sublime Text + LatexTools stops working: the build command brings up output window showing NO errors:

[Compiling /Users/.../sometexfile.tex]

TraditionalBuilder: Invoking latexmk... done.

No errors. Warnings:

It generates .aux and fdb_latexmk files, but not others, including PDF.

TexShop works fine, and if I compile with TexShop to generate a PDF, the forward/backward sync works in Sublime Text + Skim.

I wonder is there any fix?

From an answer in Stackoverflow: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/25149254/latextools-sublime-text-3-does-not-compile-after-installing-yosemite-public-b

In the preference menu, go to LaTexTools's Settings - User, change

"builder": "traditional"


"builder": "simple"
  • Can you double-check that link? It doesn't look right. Commented Oct 7, 2014 at 5:07
  • @AdamMaxwell: Do you mean the link itself does not work (on my browser it does work), or the method described is not working? Anyway, I think in the released version of Yosemite LaTexTools works fine, no need for such tweak.

  • No, your original post linked to an unrelated post, until @doed fixed it. The released version of Yosemite doesn't fix the underlying problem, but LaTeXTools has worked around it. Commented Nov 6, 2014 at 21:14
  • Lelouch, @AdamMaxwell is correct. The original link you posted, was wrong. I can't confirm though, whether your answer is correct, as I don't have a system to test it with, at the moment.
