Live preview with Kile

The free LaTeX editor Kile, which runs on Linux and on Windows (with andLinux) now offers a live preview feature in its development version. That feature is still experimental and can be tested in the development version. At the moment only pdfLaTeX is supported and it’s implemented only for standalone documents, not for projects yet. Further makeindex is not yet supported.

The requirements are:

  • PDFLaTeX with SyncTeX support (offered by TeX Live 2010 and 2011, for example)
  • Development version of the Okular viewer
  • Development version of Kile

This screenshot shows working with the preview feature:
