TUG: TeX User's Group

WinEdt is a powerful and versatile Unicode text editor for Windows.

It is commonly used as a front-end (Integrated Development Environment) for compilers and typesetting systems, such as TeX, HTML, or NSIS. WinEdt's highlighting schemes can be customized for different modes and its spell checking functionality supports multilingual setups, with dictionaries (word lists) for many languages available on www.winedt.org.

Although reasonably suitable as an all-purpose text editor, WinEdt has been specifically designed and configured to integrate seamlessly with TeX Systems (such as MiKTeX or TeX Live).


New: WinEdt 11.0

Software Informer Editor's pick award

WinEdt 11.0 is now the official version of the program. It inherits all WinEdt 10 functionality with plenty of new features, numerous fixes and improvements (too many to list here).

It supports (customizable) auto completion, code folding, it is dpi-aware, unicode/utf8-capable, and it integrates seamlessly with the latest accessories and TeX Systems. WinEdt 11 has been extensively tested under Windows 11 and 10.

WinEdt 11 comes with its own PDF Viewer that supports SyncTeX for forward and inverse search and it is designed to work with pdf documents while they are being (re)compiled by TeX. Of course, you can still use alternative PDF viewers (just like before) but having its own viewer gives WinEdt the expected (problem-free) TeX2PDF functionality out of the box without any user intervention.

WinEdt 11 can run simultaneously with an older version of the program. WinEdt 10 will continue to function exactly as before after installing the new version. Some manual work is required to import your old customizations (if you extensively modified configuration and macro scripts in WinEdt 10).
