How to turn on usefull debugging? I am using ubuntu version
(0.5~t20160201~git~d4a4502~trusty1) on 14.04 and TeXworks is absolutely
unusable: hangs furing compilation. pdflatex stayes in state defunct. To be
1. on ”clean state” only source file everything gose OK.
2. on second compilation program hangs.
3. deletingoutput file (pdf) and starting texworks — first compilation is
ok, and second fails.
The sync between source and pdf and back — does not work (when program is
opened again on comppiled source file).
Thanks and regards
PS Previous version (0.5~t20160118~git~905382e~trusty1) used to work ok
except key bindings in editor (comment, uncomment,…) clicking on a word
does not highligt it.
