Handling compiling errors

LaTeX is a very picky typesetting program, and a lot of tiny things cancausecompiling errors. By following the instructions below you willintroduce anerror into your universe.tex file and then see how to deal with it.
  1. Change your .tex file so that it looks like this:

    documentclass{article}
    begin{document}
    Howdy universe!
    The & is a special character.
    end{document}

  2. Now click Typeset and you will get the following error: 'Misplaced alignment tab character &'.
  3. In LaTeX, the '&' character is used for tabbing(alignment) in certain environments, but it is not a legal character onits own; that is what the first line of the error message above issaying - that the character '&' is being used somewhere itshouldn't. Click 'Go To Error' to go to the place where the compiler thinks there is an error in the editing window.

4. To fixthe problem, you could 'commentout' the entire line by placing a % at the beginning of theline. Trythis and click typeset again.

5. Or you can do asLaTeX suggests, and put a' in front of the &. Remove the % and try this.

Printing a finished LaTeX document

If you want to print right from the computer you are working on, it'seasy; justchoose 'Print' from the 'File' menu of the PDF viewer. Don't print from the Texmaker window, because you will only be printingtheLaTeX code, not the finished product.
