LaTex is a popular markup language for writing scientific documents. Sublime Text is a simple, yet, powerful text editor which I love. In this note, I share my setup for using Latex with Sublime Text.


  • Install MacTeX.
  • Install Sublime Text.
  • Install Package Control in Sublime.
  • Install LaTeX TOOLS using Package Control: 1) “Command+Shift+P” to open Command Pallet 2) Type “Install package” and find “LaTeX Tools”.

  • Install Inverse Search with Skim pdf viewer. In Skim > Preferences > Sync: 1) Uncheck “Check for file changes” 2) Preset to “Sublime text” (/Applications/Sublime for ST3)

  • Separate temporary files: set “output_directory” option with the value «cache»
