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 Make \emph{} look like Stackoverflow highlighting
As far as I know, xcolor is preferred over color and is (at least largely) backwards compatible.

comment My center header is not centered
Can you add a complete minimal example? Also, can you add the showframe option to the geometry package? It will draw lines that make the difference more evident.

As far as I can see, you're not going to be able to do it easily with simple comment syntax.

Looks centered to me... Do you mean to have it be more... 'together'?

comment Lilypond generated with MuseScore does not fit the width of the page in XeTeX doc
Unfortunately I don't have the resources to troubleshoot the actual problem here at work, but I will note for your information that you can have non-index related things that need multiple compiles, too :) tex.stackexchange.com/a/155488/17423

comment Lilypond generated with MuseScore does not fit the width of the page in XeTeX doc
While I don't think it's a problem here, there are many cases where repeat runs of latex are needed to sort out positioning issues. When the document is processed, auxiliary information is written out to be included in the next run. This sometimes takes time to stabilize.

comment Matlab axis labels always remain small when converted to pdf
I agree; I would check that the PDF looks how it's supposed to in a standard PDF viewer (like Adobe Reader, Evince, or Skim). My suspicion is that it does not.

comment Is there a quick way to jump out of brackets in TexMaker?
Emacs does :) Emacs treats brace groups as lists, so the list navigation functionality works as you'd expect. I have them bound to Ctrl+(Up|Down|Left|Right) respectively.
