VSCode Latex Preview Extension
Inline preview of LaTeX documents, automatically updated on save.
Generate VSCode build tasks for LaTeX documents.
Click on a document position to go to the relevant source code.
Use a context menu item to go from source code to a preview document position.
Open a .tex file, and then click the "Open Preview" button in the title bar. This will open a preview rendering which
is updated when you save the document. To go from a source code location to a preview location, select "Show in Preview"
in the editor context menu. You can also click on the preview document to go to the corresponding source code. If you
want to use xetex or latexmk to generate your preview you can change the latex-preview.command config option.
For BibTeX support, it is recommended to set latex-preview.command to latexmk, which will use latexmk to run the
required bibtex commands. On Windows, you will need to ensure that Perl is installed for latexmk support.
To generate a VSCode build task to run pdflatex, run the "LaTeX: Create Build Task" command.
LaTeX: Create Build Task Prompts to select a .tex file and creates a task in tasks.json to build it using pdflatex.
