You guys are seriously the best.

Check out my blog over on @GitHub!

You can put a

<!-- language: lang-lisp -->

to mark LISP sections of code. (Yay, @giordano!!)


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

comment Is there a bibtex “schema” somewhere?
The biblatex manual is also pretty good. Check out texdoc biblatex (or, for that matter, texdoc bibtex)

comment How can I connect beamer blocks with edges through the center?
I've seen tex.stackexchange.com/q/96289/17423, but I'd like a solution that is a little less intrusive to the user layer.

comment How can I typeset this mathematical expression?
@Adam I love LaTeX—I really, really do—but it's times like these that teach me you can make anything complicated if you try hard enough. :)

comment How can I have (or emulate) 'normal' behavior with \ParallelPar when working across pages (on a spread)?
@StevenB.Segletes The parallel is meant for parallel texts (e.g. translations) set side-by-side. The c option sets them in columns on the same page, whereas the p option sets them on separate pages. Unfortunately, \ParallelPar seems to just be \newpage when the p option is in effect. The output is to appear to operate on the entire spread.

comment Inserting Custom Commands with Emacs+AucTeX
Easiest thing I can think of is simply recording a keyboard macro. Aside from that, C-c C-m will insert the command closely to what you want: \mycustomcommand{SELECTED TEXT}

@cfr Thanks for taking a look into it! The above works; do you mind posting it as an answer, and perhaps where you found the --paper option? (The manpage leaves a bit to be desired…)

@cfr I don't want portrait; I want a landscape layout of 2-up portrait pages such that the resulting PDF is exactly letterpaper. I'll try to edit my question to be clearer; perhaps I'm being a bit short :)
