Hi Pablo, I use to work (to compile) on ConTeXt documents only with TeXworks (on Linux and Windows). Then I guess you're much more able to work with TeXWork than me ! It's very useful and it allows double windows simultaneously : on left your ctx code, on right the pdf output.
You only have to configure two things : the path where texworks finds context executable (~/home/context/tex/texmf-linux32/bin or /.../linux64/bin, and the same for Microsoft Windows). And a to give a little parameter to TeXworks. I am afraid that you have to read my French explanation here : https://fr.wikibooks.org/wiki/ConTeXt#Installation_et_configuration_de_TeXWorks But I translate the most important (point 3 of the link given above): When TeXworks is open, go to "Typesetting/Composition" within the "Edition =>Preferences" menu. The inferior table "Processing Tools", just create a new tool by clicking on "+" and write "ConTeXt MKIV". In the field "Program", give the path to "context.exe", the same given above. Inside the mask "Arguments" add "$fullname" AND THAT'S ALL ! (Now you are under TeXworks : you must have "ConTeXt MKIV" just beside the green arrow. If your compilation doesn't work maybe it is because you are trying to compile your *.tex file with another executable (pdftex, pdflatex, or anything else...). Very good idea to build some Spanish documentation on ConTeXt ! Hope it may helps !

Before any new user can start compiling ConTeXt sources, I realize that I have to explain how to configure an editor for ConTeXt. Since I plan to deal with the latest beta from the ConTeXt Suite, I need to explain how to deploy it. I use Geany in Linux and Notepad++ in Windows. But they are too complex for newbies. TeXworks seems the best option to start with (and to explain to newcomers). I compile my documents with the following commands: source ~/context/tex/setuptex && contextjit document.tex I had never problems with that. But as soon as I started to test Qt applications, I cannot use this. I mean, the commands above don’t work either with TeXworks or TexitEasy. Does anyone know how to make the previous commands work with TeXworks? Setting paths is something I want to avoid, since it is potentially dangerous for newbies.
