Can be solved by proper setting in TeXnicCenter: Go to menu: "Build"-> "Define Output Profiles." choose profile "LateX to PDF". Switch to "Viewer" tab Set-up parameters: "Executable path" should be something like (check, where have you installed Adobe Reader): C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroRd32.exe Parameters: "Command", "...

Follow all the steps mentioned in the TeXnicCenter + Sumatra Tutorial, but keep in mind these few things: In the (La)TeX tab / (La)TeX compiler section / Command line arguments to pass to the compiler bar, you should write: -synctex=-1 -interaction=nonstopmode "%Wm" In the Viewer tab / Executable path section, what should be written is: "C:\Program Files\...

With the (silent) April 2017 update to Acrobat Reader DC to version 2017.009.20044, the parameters in Jiří's answer don't work anymore. TeXnicCenter just stops responding when trying to view the output with F5. To solve the problem, simply replace the server parameter from acroviewR15 to acroviewR17 like below. The dialog can be accessed with Alt + F7. ...

You've enabled "End of Lines". Disable this by following View > End of Lines: Keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+9.

Unfortunately, space characters cannot reliably be copied from a PDF. This answer on Superuser is bang on: The problem with PDF is that it doesn't really encode text. All it does is pretty much saying "Put those glyphs there, and those glyphs there". It's a format intended for print and high-fidelity document preview on screen but not so much to ...

Adobe Reader X has a security feature called Protected Mode. By default, Protected Mode is enabled at startup. While I do not understand the details, if protected mode is enabled, TeXnikCenter's build profiles are not able to interact 100% successfully with Adobe Reader X. So along with the build profile information in @Garbage Collector's answer, you ...

I would create a new build profile, say LaTeX > PDF (Biber), which is a copy of LaTeX > PDF (the one set up by default in TeXnicCenter): Now add biber as the BibTeX compiler: In the above "Command line arguments to pass to BibTeX", %tm refers to the file "Title (without extension)". You can also add other arguments to want to pass to biber here (like ...

In Adobe Reader and Acrobat (the editor) X and XI the protected mode is in Security(Enhanced) and not on the General: Adobe Acrobat: Protected View (Windows only). You need to disable that.

The table-format key is used to set up how much space siunitx reserves in a table column for numbers. As such, it should reserve enough space for the largest entry in that column. The format is the same as a number, and the input is processed by the same code. As such, if you need to reserve space for a sign then using - rather than + is recommended as with ...

No feedback for about a month, but let’s generally summarize some possible issues, partly already mentioned in the comments: The Adobe Acrobat/Reader must be closed before recompiling the source. The security feature called Protected Mode of Adobe Reader must unfortunately be set off (!) for proper working, see answer of alex.jordan and answer of innrain to ...

By adding these three lines \makeatletter \@ifpackageloaded{biblatex}{\addbibresource{literatur.bib}}{\bibliography{literatur}} \makeatother instead of just \addbibresource{} TeXnicCenter believes you are using \bibliography{} and integrates it accordingly into the GUI and for autocomplete. This solution has the beauty of working with both biblatex (+...

The Problem is, mentioned in the questions comment, that SumatraPDF is linked to the Latex-Compiler through synctex and doesnt know, which created the resulting PDF. You can use the inverse-search command through the a commandlineswitch of SumatraPDF:-inverse-search. The commands are: TeXnicCenter: -inverse-search "\"C:\Program Files\TeXnicCenter\TEXCNTR....

You could use the tabular environment: \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \begin{tabular}{r@{\enspace\textbullet\enspace}l} Address & City, State \\ Phone number & Email address \end{tabular} \end{document} The \enspace defines the horizontal spacing on either side of the bullet (thanks to Bernard for this suggestion).

No answer for almost two weeks, so here my guess: You’ve chosen the wrong output profile for compiling. The template file NanoMMTA_template.tex, available in the ZIP file to be found from your link, clearly states in the preamble: %% put the discipline from the list below" %% chemistry, biology, physics, mathematics, medicine \documentclass[mathematics,DVI]...

Actually, arara can be called from TeXworks as well as from TeXnicCenter. To get a XeTeX + Biber workflow, you should have the following setup: Your mwe.tex, save as UTF-8: % arara: xelatex % arara: biber % arara: xelatex \documentclass[a4paper]{scrreprt} \usepackage[backend=biber,style=authoryear,isbn=false,dashed=true]{biblatex} \bibliography{mwe.bib} \...

Change %bm to %tm. There has been a change in MiKTeX from version 2.8 to 2.9 with the result, that in special cases %bm is not longer working. For me everything runs well after that changings.

I have placed this png in C:\Program Files\TeXnicCenter (I am assuming this is the build location). No. The file should be placed into the folder of your .tex document. More generally, no user files belong in C:\Program Files. As the name says, this folder is for applications only. In a properly configured Windows this folder shouldn’t even be writeable ...

Dealing with processes is not a trivial task, sadly. From the terminal, arara prints the compilation status and ends, as expected. When called from editors, I believe it's a matter on how each developer decided to handle process input/output. From TeXworks, things seem smooth, even if it requires user interaction. I once once a problem with TeXnicCenter ...

Here's a way to do this in TeXnicCenter: Visit your Output Profiles (Build > Define Output Profiles / Alt + F7). TeXnicCenter creates a number of output profiles by default, including one called LaTeX > PS > PDF. Make a copy of this and call it TeX > PS > PDF. Then change the "Path to the (La)TeX compiler to use the tex.exe executable ...

Yes, this can certainly be done. Step 1 Create a directory anywhere you like that will contain your templates. In theory you could probably use the TeXnicCenter default directory (in Program Files) but this may get overwritten when you update, so I would therefore recommend something like C:\Users\chughes\Documents\textemplates` Within this directory, ...

You have no working format. Go to MiKTeX settings, tab "Format", select "lualatex" and click on build. If you get an error copy the error message.

Just use \begin{figure}[thb]\fontsize{10pt}{12pt}\selectfont or \begin{figure}[thb]\small if small is 10pt in your class. Also you need % here {plotPadd}{% and here \def\svgwidth{0.95\textwidth}% and here \input{BLA.pdf_tex}% or you will have spurious white space in the fcolorbox

In TeXnicCenter, you probably pressed Escape while the "Output" window was active. This unpins it from the interface, effectively removing it from view. To restore this window in V 1.00 (Stable), follow View > Output Bar: To restore this window in V 2.02+, follow View > Tool Windows > Build Output (or Ctrl + Alt + B).

If you use biblatex together with Biber, bibtex (i.e. bibtex.exe) is not needed any more. You could use biblatex together with bibtex via the backend=bibtex option, but that is general not recommended because some functions depend on the Biber backend, and so bibtex is considered a 'legacy backend' for biblatex now. In theory, then you could delete bibtex ...

Beside the suggestion of a multi platform TeX editor: If the Windows user insisted on TeXnicCenter, he/she should use the quite new TeXnicCenter 2.0 Beta1 (TXC below) – for download go to http://www.texniccenter.org/ –, then all of your requirements would be satisfied: It is UTF8-aware. It can read files with UNIX line endings (i.e. bare line feeds). Both ...

There is an option to make your TeXnicCenter autocomplete when you start writing align* and then pressing Ctrl+ Space. So maybe it's better than using a mouse click. First if you go to your folder shown below, you'll find a lot of xml files and some toolbar icon pictures. These XML files hold the auto-complete keywords by scanning your input. You can ...

If you install TeXnicCenter 2.0 Beta 1, the option to compile with LuaLaTeX is already available as follows: Note that TeXnicCenter 2.0 Beta 1 (either 32 or 64 bit version) still does NOT support Unicode even though it claims to support UTF-8. That is its feature!

You need a project in order to have a visible "structure." Moreover, this terminology has been updated and is now referred to as an "outline." And, with each project, there is an associated "main file." It's this file that TeXnicCenter starts with in order to build the outline view. To show the TeXnicCenter outline of a project, use Ctrl+Alt+O (or via the ...

Requirements The preliminary steps can be summarized as follows: Note that for each installation, just accept the default settings. Install either TeX Live 2012 or MikTeX (the latest version). Install Adobe Reader. Install TeXnicCenter (RC1 is the stable one). Configurations Now configure the installed TeXnicCenter as follows: Run the TeXnicCenter, ...
