I'm new to LaTeX and I'm using MiKTeX and TeXworks.

I am wondering if there is a way that every change in my .tex automatically rendered and shown on a display?

Currently I click the typeset button every time and I'm looking for an automatic way to do this?

    Have a look at Overleaf. – user156344 Mar 2 at 15:55

    some systems are available, but it's probably better to learn not to look at the preview so often, even with modern hardware some documents take several seconds or several minutes to generate a new pdf so doing it often just slows you down, better to type a few pages of material and then look what you have, and fix any errors. – David Carlisle Mar 2 at 15:58

    @AndréC my understanding that lyx is showing a typeset view of the source file not a continuously updated view of the tex rendering? – David Carlisle Mar 2 at 17:11

    Gummi can show a preview every 1--60 seconds, or after 1--60 seconds of editor inactivity. Said that, this could be a great feature to test a small like a letter but a pain for big documents like a thesis. BTW, LyX does not do that. Although nearly is a WYSIWYG editor in the maths mode, is far of show a true preview automatically. – Fran Mar 3 at 0:14
