BaKoMa TeX Word
True WYSIWYG LaTeX Editor
About BaKoMa TeX WordBaKoMa TeX Word is True WYSIWYG LaTeX Editor.
We use the word True to highlight two facts:
- It is True WYSIWYG Editor.
It means that display shows precisely the same what will be printed on paper.
It looks such that you edit your document immediately in DVI Viewer window.
- It is True LaTeX Editor.
It edits LaTeX source text without any import/export procedure.
It means that you can load and edit any LaTeX 2e document.
User InterfaceBaKoMa TeX Word edits immediately LaTeX source file loaded into text buffer.
Position in text source window is synchronised with position in preview window. So, you can see two carets moved synchronously in text and preview windows. In the same way selection is also synchronised. Caret may be positioned from inside any window: Preview or Source Text. Caret is blinking in window where focus is. In other words, arrow keys move blinking caret, but static caret is just synchronised with blinking caret.
Any modifications (typesetting letters, deletions, etc.) are reflected in Preview and Source Text windows immediately. It requires no special action to reflect changes.
Looking around toolbar you can found set of tools to insert frequently used LaTeX constructions. These tools are designed for using in context of Preview Window. In fact, using these tools dramatically reduce needs in handling Source Text Window. Now, you can think about source Text window as about extended status bar. This feature is very important for comfortable work, because it make able to keep attention only in one window -- preview window. It is much more convenient then having attention on two windows.

Long documents -- TeX Word PerformanceWe would like to clarify one misinformation that
'BaKoMa TeX Word is efficient only for short documents, because it runs TeX on background'.
In one side it is true that BaKoMa TeX Word runs TeX to display
document. This approach provides True WYSWIWYG Preview
(100 % compatibility with output of native LaTeX).
However, BaKoMa TeX Word has no degradation of performance at editing long documents. Our users edit books of 500 and more pages and enjoy that speed is even better then at editing one-page document !!! The reason of this scalability is that only one page of document is reformatted at editing document.
System Requirements -- TeX Word PerformanceTo have comfortable work with BaKoMa TeX Word your processor must be able to reprocess a page between two sequential keys pressed by your fingers on keyboard. So, estimation of required CPU may be adjusted for speed with which you type on keyboard.
It looks such that at least 1 GHz CPU is required
to work with BaKoMa TeX Word.
On such computers you can find that response at editing first page is slightly slow, but on following pages it will good enough. If you have found response isn't good enought you can disable font anti-aliasing. It will dramatically speedup displaying text.
However, at least 2 GHz CPU is recommended
to work with BaKoMa TeX Word.
You will not see difference in speed of displaying first and following pages. You can work with anti-aliased fonts without noticeable delay.
