LaTeX is a world widely famous document preparation system, by the usage of which
good quality and well-formatted documents can be easily produced. Its language elements
support editing images, figures and equations therefore it is widely used in scientific
circles. The principle of LaTeX is to separate the presentation and the content of the
document, so that the user of the system can concentrate better on the written text and
by that an appropriately formatted output can be made with less effort and less amount of
time. However, the declarative commands, which put the principle into practice, demand
some knowledge. Getting familiar with the instruction set of LaTeX and spending time
waiting for the source code to compile make the tasks of the user more difficult. Even
learning to use LaTeX is not an easy task at all.
From my point of view, an important task of a LaTeX based word processor is to make
all the potential of the environment available for the users unfamiliar with LaTeX. The
goal of my work was to create an application that can be used intuitively by anyone.
Initially, I got familiar with the environment and the specialities of that and got aware
of the difficulties occurring during the usage of it. Then, I examined the available word
processors, collected all the advantages and disadvantages of them and identified all the
requirements a well-designed LaTeX based word processor has to fulfill. My aim with that
was to develop an application with all the functionalities that can be benefitial for a user.
With the experiences from my researches I designed and implemented an application that
fulfills all the necessary requirements and provide all the inevitable functionalities.
The result of my thesis work is an easy to use program with an ergonomic user interface
that helps the users unfamiliar with the LaTeX environment to use the numerous
advantageous features of the system.
