### configuring texmaker

Hi,

I have configuered texmaker and in quick build options I have selected "pdfLatex+view Pdf", But after compiling, Pdf file does't open automatically. I need to go to the folder and open it. One more thing is, If the respective Pdf file is open, instead of over righting it, compiler gives lot of error messages. Please someone help me in this regard.

Have you configured the path for the pdfviewer? It is the 10^th item of the configuration widget.

Quick check on my system (Vista 32bit) shows that quick build with "pdfLatex+view Pdf" works as desired. How did you configure texmaker?

As for overwriting open files - it cannot be done if you use Acrobat Reader as your viewer because it locks open files so that pdftex cannot write on them. You always have to close them. This can be automated by using DDE interface of acroread but unfortunately texmaker does not have support for DDE (but e.g. TeXnicCenter does) so you might consider different text editor or different pdf viewer.

in commands tab for pdfviewer

and the same command in users quick build option. It does not open the file if any other pdf file is opened at the momment. Says document not found or something similar.

Thanx again!

OK, issue confirmed. It seems that acrobat likes when files are given with full path. Unfortunately I don't see any option in texmaker to specify full path in configuration of called programs. As a workaround you can launch acro through a batch script wrapper like this:
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
@start "" "C:\path\to\where\you\have\AcroRd32.exe" "%~f1"

This will make sure that full path to a .pdf file is given. Save the above line in 'viewpdf.bat' and specify it in texmaker configuration instead of acroread.

Cheers,

Tomek

### Re: configuring texmaker

Hi!

I had the same problem, acroread (launched from TexMaker) couldn't find the file to open. The issue was the same, acroread wanted the absolute path to the file. I had some pdf file still opened from another directory. After I closed all my acroreads and hit the TexMaker quickbuild button, it compiled and opend my pdf.

Nevertheless, the solution with the script is very nice.

See you!
