2. LaTeX Document
An LTX file is a text document created by a LaTeX program, such as MiKTeX or TeXworks. It contains LaTeX typesetting markup tags and properties that define the document structure and content. LTX files typically include the actual document text but may also reference the text from other files.
You can open LTX files with various LaTeX applications, such as MiKTeX (multiplatform), TeXworks (multiplatform), Texmaker (multiplatform), and LyxMac (macOS).
Since LTX files are saved in plain text, you can open and edit the files with a plain text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad (bundled with Windows) or Apple TextEdit (bundled with macOS). However, these text editors do not provide helpful LaTeX syntax highlighting features provided by LaTeX applications.
