Regex implementation is totally broken. I find myself switching between this and EditPad just to do:

  • syntax highlighting of regex expressions
  • multi-line searches
  • line-break replacements
  • lazy/greedy quantifiers

Also ran into a silent failure issue where latex.exe does not accept files with non-.tex file extensions.

Syntax highlighting and autocomplete are really stupid, it will suggest commands that are unavailable in the document class. And some simple commands like \center are highlighted as errors.

Otherwise TeXstudio seems to be a decent tool.

I have found TeXstudio to be the best TeX IDE on MacOS. However, it is far from perfect.

It is a fork of TexMaker, to which it is compared here:

TeXstudio platform details

Mac

The OS X version is experimental. Since none of the currently active developers is using OS X, we cannot thoroughly test it. We do our best to also support OS X but be prepared that there may be some issues.
