I'm looking for a spell checking software for LaTex in Windows. I know that such questions have been asked before but more than a decade has passed. Hopefully, there are better solutions out now. Aspell was last compiled in 2002 for Windows and out of support.

My LaTeX documents have a lot of math involved so I'd like the software to skip the formulae.

  • TexmicCenter doesn't ignore formulae, but it does ignore single letters. So use $c x$ instead of $cx$ and you will be fine. Feb 18 at 14:13
