LaTeX for GW ETDs

Students writing their ETDs in LaTeX may wish to use an editor for Windows computers such as WinEdt. The advantage of using WinEdt is that it can compile a document using PDF LaTeX, which generates a PDF as the final output. The procedures are very simple within WinEdt:

1. Open your .tex file.

2. Save your document in .pdf archival format.

3. Click on the PDFLaTeX icon.

4. The PDF appears.
