WinEdt in Action: Snapshots
WinEdt's overall appearance depends on your Windows and selected Themes, and on the way you want to customize WinEdt's own colors and background schemes. Below are a few examples of WinEdt in action on Windows 8 with customized theme and visual effects...
WinEdt in Action as TeX Editor
Note the drop-down menu in the button that starts TeX; the default compiler can be changed. The drop-down portion of the button only has to be accessed when you want to change the default compiler. This example also shows the default 2-row toolbar and has enabled background schemes and effects (gradient background for special environments and right margin). It is easy to enable or disable such effects through the Preferences Dialog or through the Options Interface where the appearance can be further customized.
TeX was executed in WinEdt's Console (bottom panel). The default shortcut to toggle the visibility of the console is Shift+Ctrl+C.
Notice auto-delimiter matching in action. And Line Numbers are shown ()for visual feedback ). In the default settings the shortcut Ctrl+= toggles the visibility of the line numbers...
GUI Page Control (TeX Symbols)
WinEdt provides a special GUI Page Control containing almost 500 buttons associated with TeX symbols. The control and its contents are user customizable:
This example also illustrates WinEdt's spell-checking ability. The commands Check Word (Shift+Enter) and Complete Word (Ctrl+Enter) in the Tools menu can be real life-savers. Right-clicking an a misspelled word brings up the Suggestions Dialog.
Misspelled words are (by default) highlighted in red and underlined. This auto-spelling functionality can be turned off by clicking on the Spell panel in the status line. The same applies to other panels in the status line: they respond to mouse clicks!
Note that WinEdt supports standard (LINE) mode copy, cut and paste operations as well as Block (Column) selection mode. If you want to manipulate columns of data, the selection mode can be toggled by clicking on the LINE panel in the status line. Note that choosing the Block Mode selection temporarily disables auto-wrapping and enables the "free caret interface". After you are finished with the Block Selection Mode you should restore the default behavior (click on the Block Panel to return to the "standard" LINE selection mode).
WinEdt in Action as HTML Editor
Below is an example of WinEdt customized to work on its web pages. Note the variable width font (Verdana 10) and fixed right margin (with Soft Wrapping) enabled for HTML mode. WinEdt's Options Interface (Font Schemes) can be used to make mode-specific modifications like this:
The Options Interface is displayed on top of the Tree/ Navigation Bar Control. It's Visibility can be toggled through Options Menu...
WinEdt in Action as NSIS Editor
WinEdt now provides a friendly interface for editing and compiling NSIS scripts. Below is an example of WinEdt working on its own installer script:
WinEdt in High Contrast Scheme #1 on Windows 10
WinEdt is compatible with Windows High Contrast Schemes:
All Windows theme elements (including Window background, text color and highlighting schemes) adjust automatically to such a scheme.
WinEdt on UHD display
WinEdt is compatible with UHD Displays. Below is an example of how WinEdt looks at 192 dpi resolution:
WinEdt is dpi-aware on a system (rather than per-monitor) level. All graphics elements adjust to the magnification specified for the primary monitor in Windows control panel (usually 100%, 125%, 150%, 175% or 200%). If you are using multiple monitors with different magnifications then WinEdt should be placed on the primary monitor in order to avoid "blurry" appearance. Per-monitor dpi-awareness currently doesn't work properly for MDI applications due to the limitations in Windows API.
