Can't open .tmd files in TexMaker for Mac

Postby uhi888 » Fri Sep 04, 2015 11:38 am

Hi there,

a friend sent me files with a .tmd file extension and told me he wrote them in TexMaker (on a Windows machine). I then installed TexMaker for Mac but I can't open the files (the system won't recognise them). Only if I go to "open all files" in the "open" dialogue window then I can open them but there's only "wrong" text (please see it here:

The TexMaker for Mac system shows me only these extensions for opening:

How can I open these files now?

Thanks in advance

Welcome to the LaTeX community!

To me this looks like a file encoding issue. Ask your friend which encoding he/she used.

I don't know TeXmaker but I guess it has an option to set the encoding with which the file is opened.

I'd also check how other editors display the file.

chemmacros · chemformula · leadsheets · xsim

Hi Clemens,

danke fürs Erste. Ich frag' mal nach bezüglich des Encodings.

Thanks so far. I'll ask him about the encoding.
