# [Tex/LaTex] Latex editor for Linux that allows multiple instances

editorslinux

I have always used Texmaker, but I'm at the point now where I am writing multiple documents at the same time (e.g., thesis and paper). Additionally, I like to have my work organized into different workspaces.

This is where Texmaker fails me. It only allows a single instance of the application at a time. As far as I can tell, there is no way to have two instances of Texmaker open at the same time. I have tried Kile, and it is the same thing.

I was just wondering if anyone has experience with other latex editors that support multiple instances? I know of TexMakerX, but the installation isn't clean, and I forget the steps I had to take to make it work once (I also remember being underwhelmed once I installed it…). I'm also familiar with emacs+auctex, but at the end of the day, I would much rather use an IDE like editor.

Any suggestions are appreciated, thanks.

Kile can be called with the --new argument, launching a new instance.
kile --new
