    Question checking LaTeX output

    Hi guys!

    I am totally new to LaTeX so please bear with me. I have the text editor Texnic center am and currently trying to learn to use it to create LaTeX documents. I finally got to the point where I can finally build documents and view the output in Adobe. My question is, while working on a document, is it bad, after initally saving your file, to regularly "build" the output repeadedly as you work on your document to check the output to see if its correct,or is it best to just finish the whole document first, and then make adjustments accordingly? I don't know much about computers, so I'm not sure if continuously building over and over again is bad for your memory, or can cause issues.

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Hello
    it's better to finish the whole work first then save the file and proceed to adjustments,that is good if you have a small work to do.

    If you complete the document before compiling you will have so many error messages that it will be difficult to find and correct them. Always be sure that your work is saved before compiling. The compiler/s may have memory leaks (which is why you might have problems) but as these are separate from the TeXnic centre they should not be a problem and on a modern machine you are unlikely to run into problems even if the memory is not released when the compiler terminates.
