  Trouble Shooting
Here is a link to the most Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the MacTeX installation. In addition there are links to other resources and the MacTeX-Support webpage.

  What Is Installed
To discover what is installed by MacTeX-2013 and where it goes, read the linked document.

  Support for Multiple TeX Distributions
New versions of TeX Live are produced approximately once a year. The previous version of MacTeX contained TeX Live 2012; the new version contains TeX Live 2013. Installing the new version preserves the old version, and it is easy to switch back to that version if the new TeX Live has a bug. To understand how that is accomplished, read the document on support for Multiple TeX Distributions.

Uninstalling MacTeX
If you change your mind and decide that you want to uninstall MacTeX-2013, read these notes.
