Configuring Visual Studio Code for LaTeX

dodo · February 1, 2021

VS Code has very poor LaTeX support out-of-the-box. Here I list useful extensions and other software that will transform VS Code into a much more power LaTeX editor. They also do not conflict with each other, which is great.

Getting it out of the way: LaTeX Workshop

While I have used LaTeX Workshop for a long time, I started experiencing a few issues with it that, over time, got really annoying. The main issue is simply the Enter key not working, which was then replaced by a substantial delay between pressing the Enter key and actually inserting a new line character. Fixing one apparently introduced the other, so, after many tries, I just gave up on LaTeX Workshop.
