Texlipse is a LaTeX plugin for Eclipse. It’s great. I even find it more convenient than dedicated LaTeX editors. However, I seem to have to figure out how to configure the different viewers over and over again, so therefore a quick post about it.

In fact, it is actually quite simple. You can find the viewer settings in

Preferences > Texlipse > Viewer Settings.

To use Adobe Reader, edit the settings for acroread:

  • Viewer command: /usr/bin/open
  • Viewer arguments: -a “/Applications/Adobe Reader.app” %file

To use Preview, add a new configuration preview:

  • Viewer command: /usr/bin/open
  • Viewer arguments: -a “/Applications/Preview.app” %file

And so on…
