Because of some problems (like getting stuck while compiling) I deleted my miktex and reinstalled the last version from its website (basic-miktex-20.11.x64.exe). Then I downloaded TextWorks from here(.zip file). It seems that this TexWorks is a portable version. Now when I start TexWork I only have separate processing tools of: pdfLatex, BibTex, XeLatex,... . But I need something like pdfLaTeX+MakeIndex+BibTeX That I had before. When I compile my file with only pdfLatex, my citations get like this [?] and not known. How can I enable these combined processing tools? (I don't have them in Edit/Preferences/typesetting/processing tools list too).

    I have no idea how to configure texworks to make a combined pipeline but using the menu you show, simply choose pdflatex then bibtex then pdflatex again Commented Nov 4, 2020 at 22:08

to edit the option pdfLaTeX+MakeIndex+BibTeX you can click Edit-> settings. Then the settings look like this:Add a new programm(cross at the bottom right; Command is texify.exe; Arguments are '--pdf', --synctex=1, --clean and $fullname; also tick the show pdf afterwards, if you like)

  • Very helpful! I installed a new version of TeXworks on a different machine, which didn't have the pdfLaTeX+MakeIndex+BibTeX option which I'm sure my older version must have come with!
