Change the default template for new .tex files: Add a file called 'template.tex' in your local root project folder (/sdcard/VerbTeX/Local/template.tex). The next time you add a new document to a project the new .tex file will be filled with the text of your template.tex file.

* to split up your project into multiple .tex files by using the include{...} command of LaTeX

    Find function is available since v2.1.9

    Excellent application, works as intended. Although cannot open existing files, copy and pasting from existing files works just file. One can add files into the VerbTex folder, and can, presumably, use \include, although I haven't tried. Figures in jpg work great, but not in eps or pdf. Must have internet to compile tex.

    Has no "find" or "undo" function though, so finding text or correct giant unintended mistakes (selected all --> spacebar) is really hard. Save often!
