Using command: Process started: pdflatex.exe -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode "Skripsie".tex

Compilation in TeXstudio takes very long (3-5 minutes). The document is only 12 pages long with no images. Is there any way to speed it up. Like for example only compiling separate chapters?

  • How long does it take to process the same document through a command window/terminal? What platform are you on, what latex distribution? (Windows/mac/linux, miktex/texlive/mactex...) Oct 26, 2015 at 19:30
  • HI @FredrikJohansson, I am new at this - what do you mean by command window/terminal? I am on Windows and miktex

  • assuming your file is called myfile.tex, try the following: open the folder where the file is stored. Hold down shift and right-click on the folder background. You should now get a list with an option open command window here. Choose this. In the window type pdflatex myfile.tex and see how long this takes. Oct 26, 2015 at 19:53

    You did two things at once: 1) moved to a local folder 2) removed the bibliography. Which one of these was causing the problem? Oct 27, 2015 at 23:27
