if the &E#*-design of the installer and config location is modified to be truly portable something like what TeXLive offers, none of this hassle is required. BTW: mikTeX portable is extremely buggy and does not offer 64-bit build. Duh! This problem always happens when a developer of a legacy application tries to catch the fake train to modernism, and ...

Maximum compatibility is impossible because \k is not provided in classical TeX in Computer Modern. Thus \k is undefined control sequence in plain TeX. The \k is defined depending on used macro package and used font encoding. LaTeX with default font encoding doesn't know the \k. Second problem: \"i gives dotted i and next pair of dots above (i.e. three ...

Use 1 or 2. You do not want to add groups around the letter unless you can avoid it (this is a major problem with bibtex's use of groups to control upper and lower casing). fine will typically use an fi ligature in most fonts but f{i}ne will break the ligature (usually). It is the same with letters with diacritics. If \"{i} is resolving to the use of the ...

If you installed the fonts as traditional TeX fonts i.e. you generated .tfm and .map files etc., then you can back them up as part of backing up your personal and local TEXMF directories. Whether or not you have installed these particular things in these places, you probably want to back these up. The local tree will be /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local ...

My solution introduces the macro \singledef which defines control sequence (like \def) but provides two more features: it checks if the control sequence is defined. If yes, then error message is printed and the control sequence keeps its original meaning. it saves the name of defined control sequence into the \singledeflist internal macro. When the next ...

Here is an unsuccessful answer. Perhaps someone can show how to fix the comparison in \TestNewSymbol so that it actually identifies duplicates. Otherwise I suppose this will demonstrate why this approach does not work! \documentclass{article} \usepackage{pdftexcmds} % Create an "array" of symbols with increasing numbers in their names. % E.g., ...

@egreg has shown how to compare two fully expanded strings (On testing two fully expanded character strings for equality), and you could apply his technique here. I have added an error message in case you reuse a symbol. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{pdftexcmds} \newcommand{\symbolI}{A} \newcommand{\symbolII}{\pi r^2} \newcommand{\symbolIII}{\pi ...

It is good to be reminded that from a LaTeX team member's viewpoint font choice is just a style choice. But from a user's viewpoint some choices would be unacceptably odd and others would be not best. Manuel brings up a technical issue decisive for me. Even using the amsmath and amsfonts packages you do not have \mathds. Of course I can easily add the ...

The import package allow insert documents of another directory, allowing to that files to find its own \inputs, , \includegraphics, etc. For the example, I make only stand alone files with docmute package: img01.tex in directory contents/chap01/img/: \documentclass[margin=5mm]{standalone} \usepackage{tikz} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture} \fill ...

I am not sure if i can answer the question as posted in a precise way, but here we go. From the LaTeX point of view, the current working directory is ./ as a unix guy would say. In order to find the image, you have to go down into the contents directory (./contents/), then further down into chapter01 (./contents/chap01/) and finally change into the image ...

Unless there is newer information, Scientific Workplace does not appear to support e-tex.

Quick and dirty solution. There is an option KeepShorthandsActive for babel package that provides the desired result. This is what happens when the respective line in the preamble is changed to \usepackage[russian, KeepShorthandsActive]{babel}: However, such behaviour seems odd. I wonder if such manner of expansion is intentional, or the \myname macro ...
