Is there an option to show the formulas in the text editor (not the PDF on the side) so that the text can be edited while the compiled formulas appear. This option exists in emax-auctex. Does it exist in editors like TeXstudio?


Simply right-click the formula and choose "Preview Selection/Parentheses"

Note: for arbitrary environments you need to be at the beginning/end of a parenthesis. But for math formulas, you can click anywhere inside.

  • What I am looking for is to have the ENTIRE document compiled (that is, to see the compiled equations) but still to be able to edit the text (not the equations) in it , just like in auctex. What you suggested only work formula by formula (and also it shows the compiled formula after the formula code, I want the formula code to be replaced by the compiled formula). – user8476 Nov 27 '14 at 22:48
