I want to run

  • txs:///latex | txs:///bibtex | txs:///latex | txs:///latex | txs:///dvipdf | txs:///dvips | txs:///view
  • txs:///pdflatex | txs:///bibtex | txs:///pdflatex | txs:///view
  • txs:///dvi-ps-pdf-chain
  • txs:///compile | txs:///view

depening on the file I am using. As far as I know there is no Magic Comment for that. But you can add a user command, how to compile in the preferences. I know there is a shortcut, but I don't know which shortcut.

  • the first one looks a bit odd, using dvips and dvipdf on the same file? – David Carlisle Mar 7 '18 at 18:33

    You can add %!TeX program = ... at the top of your master file, where the ... are the compile options you listed above. Then this allows TXS to override your default compile options on a file-by-file basis. – Troy Mar 7 '18 at 19:43

As written in the manual you can call the shortcut with alt & shift & F%n. For example for user0:User Command 0 press alt & shift & F1.
