We are currently planning to migrate to a different platform for the forum. We will announce this fact both here and on Twitter, once we have settled on a solution.

PDF export fails - latex not detected (but path to xelatex correct)

On attempting to export to PDF Zettlr tells me that no latex installation has been detected, I have entered the path to my xelatex executable in the Advanced section of the Prefs, but the error still appears.

Any advice much appreciated.

Path to xelatex - /usr/local/texlive/2016/bin/x86_64-darwin/xelatex
Zettlr -1.8.4
macOS - 11.1


  • Hi! I have the exact same problem with Zettlr AppImage file on Debian Buster (but not so with the installed .deb version of Zettlr file). No way to make Zettlr aware of the XeLaTeX executable. This seems to be not a new issue, though...
