What is LaTeX Editor?

'LaTeX Editor' is an Edge add-on that provides an embedded LaTeX file editor for your browser. This efficient tool allows you to open any '.tex' file, compile the code, and see the rendered document within the browser, making it easy to work with basic LaTeX commands. For complex cases, a native LaTeX application may be necessary. Upon code compilation, documents can be printed to PDF via the print UI. No additional settings adjustments are needed - simply open a latex document and begin your work.
