A computer scientist at heart with a conviction for deduction.

I'm a poor mathematician but pretty decent with TeX. Let me return the favor!

TeX.SE rules.

Check out my blog over on @GitHub! It has (or will have) a lot of good resources:

  • StackExchange markdown reference (to link; things like explicit syntax highlighting and a short rundown of markdown)
  • Recommended TeX resources and editors

Insanely curious, slightly snarky, and a little absent-minded.

Recommended resources:

comment Does LaTeX3 have something for patching (or appending code to) commands?
IIRC, it was decided long ago that LaTeX3 would not succeed it if it completely threw away the syntax that made LaTeX2e so incredibly popular. You can always create something like an expl3 'wrapper' that uses the standardized expl3 syntax.

comment Add menu button in notepad++ to insert math symbols for use with latex
@Sveinung I would say that when you begin asking about professional editors, such as emacs or vim, you are rather asking a question about their TeX-specific packages, not the general editor itself (which would also be off-topic). While this is asking how to add TeX-oriented features to n++, it is a question about n++ – not TeX or TeX programs.

comment Add menu button in notepad++ to insert math symbols for use with latex
Since it boils down to inserting predefined text, I do believe this would be on-topic on SuperUser as @tohecz suggests. I would counter the editor argument by saying: a question such 'how can I get Word to recognize more TeX symbols in the equation editor' would be decidedly off-topic. What is the difference?

@Ruben Alright, I can see that :) Thankfully, it's made doubly clear by the screenshot that's been edited-in.

I do not believe this is possible. I would raise it as an issue on GitHub.

comment How can I clear the chat of a sharelatex project?
This isn't really on-topic here. Questions about editors and other LaTeX tools are a bit iffy as far as this site goes. This is about the chat function of such a tool – not at all related to its TeX capabilities.

@Ruben Unfortunately those are just words to me – I can't make any sense of them. :(

comment Indenting a paragraph only
I believe the OP is wanting to configure TeXmaker to indent the source code in this manner – I don't believe output is involved in the question.

comment Texmaker 4.4 on Mac OS X Yosemite
(Given the severity of the bug, I have gone ahead and submitted a bug report here. But this really isn't the place for bug reports. The thing to do in this scenario is search Google for something like TeXmaker bug tracker and submit the issue there.)
