LaTeX Tricks (IX) PDF Print E-mail
LaTeX - General
Written by Luca Merciadri   
Friday, 08 August 2014 14:10

We describe here how to

  1. display date & time in a standard format,
  2. write (draw) dash integrals,
  3. number rows in tables,
  4. use unhabitual punctuation marks: interrobang and percontation point,
  5. draw dependency arrows,
  6. distinguish between ConTeXt, LuaTeX, teTeX and XeTeX.

Note: I will use the word ‘Context’ for point 4. Here, ‘Context’ is to be taken in its first sense, not as ‘ConTeXt’.

The last section gives a LaTeX-related crossword puzzle.

You know the drill: When writing a scientific paper, correctly referring to related work is both tedious and important. Sometimes, you know the author and the title, but it takes time to find out exactly when and in what journal other papers are published, or you are just to lazy to fill in the page numbers and the DOI by hand. BetterBib is now here to help you out with these tasks.

LaTeX Tricks (VIII) PDF Print E-mail
LaTeX - General
Written by Luca Merciadri   
Monday, 12 May 2014 12:11

We will begin by exposing new tricks, i.e. how to

  1. write ‘closed’ square roots,
  2. insert blank pages,
  3. ask the reader to turn the page,
  4. write bold words in an index,
  5. divide a cell by a diagonal,
  6. draw ‘product integrals’,
  7. understand what happens when \mathcal has a lower-case letter argument.

We will then consider an uncommon example of what one can do with LaTeX, in link with its Turing completeness.

LyX 2.1.1 released PDF Print E-mail
News - LaTeX Editors
Written by Stefan Kottwitz   
Sunday, 20 July 2014 23:45

LyX got a small maintenance update, the current version is now 2.1.1. It's important to update, if you already use v2.1.0, since there's a serious bug which was handled now: with 2.1.0 data loss could occur when LyX would crash during saving, leaving the document fiel corrupted. Though the exact cause is not clear yet, the developers implemented a workaround: now LyX renames the original file bevor saving, keeping it as a temporary backup. This file could be used for restoring, just in a case of such a crash.
