    Welcome to tex.sx! LaTeXit is supposed to be used only to typeset single equations which can be used in other software, e.g. Keynote/Powerpoint. If you are looking for a "full-time" editor, use TeXShop which also comes with the installation of MacTeX.

    LaReXiT is meant to be used for short snippets and as an equation editor. It is NOT meant for producing full documents. Try using TeXShop which is also installed by MacTeX an found in /Applications/TeX. Jan 10, 2017 at 22:21
