what is a .ltx file?

The LTX file extension is used for a LaTex Document created through Tex typesetting language. It is a document preparation system and a document markup language. A document created with LaTex is first created using any form of Text editor but there are other types of Text editors that are created especially for LaTex use. LaTex is a combination of a program to access LaTex documents and Tex macros. TeX formatting commands are not that sophisticated thus allowing users to use it with ease and conformity. LaTex is an intermediate or primary format that is preferred by scholars and students and widely used for research environments and journal articles. Typesetting is originally composed of types and texts. It involves the process of creating the font and manner of storing it. Retrieval of these stored letters which are termed as “glyphs in digital forms and “sorts” in mechanical terms and the arrangements in accordance to orthography for visual viewing.

proTeXT

proTeXT

ProTeXt was developed by Thomas Feuerstack that works with Windows operating system. This is available in four languages namely: German, Italian, French and English. The file size of the downloadable file is 750 MB. There are third party applications included in this downloadable file in CTAN website and those are MiKTeX, ConTeXt, Ghostscript and TeXnicCenter (now known as TeXstudio). Although, the use of TeXnicCenter is highly discourage by some users. These are some latex editors that can be combined together. In order to utilize ConTeXt in ProTeXt and MiKTeX the users must install a Perl (ActivePerl and Ruby) in the users’ operating system. LaTeX involves TeX and translation of XML and DocBook to PDF files. Thru understanding more about LaTeX, users can productively use ProTeXt. This is a freeware IDE (integrated development Environment) application that focuses in Latex creation and alteration. The latest version of ProText is 3.1 released last July 2012.
MiKTeX

MiKTeX

MiKTeX is a typesetting structure for Microsoft Windows that is created by Christian Schenk. It consists of an execution of TeX and a set of related programs, and gives the tools needed to prepare documents using the TeX/LaTeX markup language, as well a simple tex editor, named TeXworks. It features easy installation, having a complete set of additions (programs, styles, fonts…) are available to help users typeset their documents, it has an integrated package manager installs missing components from the Internet, if required; having an Update Wizard helps users to keep its system up-to-date by installing the latest package updates, it has a fast previewer, having well maintained package repository and it is an open source, meaning that users are welcome to redistribute MiKTeX under certain conditions. The name derives from Christian Schenk's log-in, “MiK for Micro-Kid”. It can update itself by downloading new versions of earlier installed components and packages, and it has an easy installation process. Furthermore, it gives the users the option whether they wish to download any packages that have not yet been installed but are demanded by the current document. Present version of MiKTeX is 2.9 and is available at the MiKTeX homepage. Since version 2.7, MiKTeX has maintained for XeTeX, MetaPost and pdfTeX and compatibility with Windows 7; and is presently being ported to GNU/Linux, with a beta version being available for testing.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ltx files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .ltx. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
