 Apr 5 comment “pdflatex: ! Core one to three” error It may be off-topic but I want to upvote for diligence. Mar 29 comment How I make brackets in LaTeX? While this gets the desired affect, I disagree semantically with the use of the cases environment. There aren't any "cases" in the equation. Why not \left\{\begin{aligned}...\end{aligned}\right.? Feb 13 comment Embed Github readme.md in Latex Dec 2 comment Flowchart using TiKz - connecting arrows @arunmoezhi: see edit. If you have questions about other techniques it's probably better to start a new question (the one you originally asked has been answered). Dec 2 comment Flowchart using TiKz - connecting arrows @arunmoezhi: Yes, you can do that if you put a coordinate in between. But I'm not sure what you mean by "right of box2.south". Is that the same as box2.south east? Or do you mean a point between box2.south and box2.south east? Nov 30 comment Rolling bullet points in beamer @feffemannen: That's a good question. So you would like to have, for each step, the maximum number of bullet points through that step that will fit on the slide, to appear? That seems possible but I'm not skilled enough to do it. Nov 20 comment Typeset the shrug ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ emoji Off-topic, I guess, but: Instead of researching how to cutely disclose that you do not know how to do the problem, why not work on the problem? It will be more beneficial to your grade and your learning if you write something, even the things you tried that didn't work. Nov 19 comment tikz projection parallel to given line @daleif: I just tested it on a pgfplots canvas and it does seem to work, as well as it does without it. Nov 5 comment Cannot determine size of graphic Just to add: specificying natwidth and natheight also solved a problem I had with jpgs having incorrect bounding boxes (so the tex file compiles, but the image ends up misplaced). Aug 19 comment In what directory should I store my new LaTeX template? @dbliss if all this talk of distributions and mktexlsr is confusing to you, go with cfr's "manual option", and use your TEXMFHOME. Aug 19 comment In what directory should I store my new LaTeX template? @cfr: What I meant was, each TeX distribution has a local system-wide texmf. Isn't that true? For instance, with texlive it's /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/. Jul 23 comment How can I get a better pound symbol (number sign, hash character) “#”? I believe a hashtag refers to this symbol plus an alphanumeric string. The symbol alone is a hash character. I prefer octothorpe. Jun 16 comment How to use LaTeX on blogspot? @OLSAY: That's a question to ask the MathJax folks. May 8 comment How to get part name in LaTeX ? @juanuni: The book class might have a different implementation of \part. My patching of auxiliary macros was specific to how report did it. Feb 6 comment How do I modify the placement of the prime symbol? Ah, no I didn't forget; I've never known that syntax! I had trouble finding it in mathspec's documentation, too. But there it is, in the code comments: put the " before a character, e.g $􏰐"f$􏰐, and the character is printed with kerns on either side. Feb 6 comment What to put into the dtx file? One file you cannot put into a .dtx file is a Makefile. Docstrip strips tab characters which are necessary for make's syntax. There are workarounds requiring post-docstrip processing of the generated Makefile, but I'm not sure it's worth the trouble. Jan 21 comment pgfplots “every quiver plot” style key? Christian notes that it's not as simple as that for an every quiver plot key. See the SourceForge ticket. Jan 21 comment Long division display How about this answer: tex.stackexchange.com/a/49230/1402 Jan 20 comment Creating a Beamer Poster Does the emergency stop come with an error message of any kind? Jan 17 comment TikZ: Node position in draw environment Welcome to TeX.SX! Next time, please make your MWE compilable so that answerers don't have to add this text to test.
