Chapter 3. Using MiKTeX

Getting Started

If you have never used TeX before, then it is recommendable to work through one of the TeX/LaTeX tutorials. A good starting point is this entry in the UK TeX FAQ: http://www.tex.ac.uk/faq/.

MiKTeX doesn't differ very much from any other TeX system you might have used before. Typesetting with MiKTeX involves these steps:

  1. Start TeXworks (a simple TeX frontend) and edit your LaTeX document.

  2. Press Ctrl+T to create a typeset view of your document.
