I'm a graduate student in Chinese history, and I'm trying to learn LaTeX for writing my dissertation.

comment Language-specific removal of diacritics from text and bibliography
Got it. I look at my dozens of cleaned up references and it feels like magic. Thanks again!

comment Language-specific removal of diacritics from text and bibliography
I want to thank you again for this script, it works for me in the author field now. I reduplicated the \DeclareSourcemap and added a title field as well. But when I copy the \DeclareSourcemap again to add publisher, subtitle etc, the script just stops working and the diacritics stay. Do I have too many \DeclareSourcemap? Is there a way to add several fields in one \DeclareSourcemap, e.g. \step[fieldsource={title and author and editor and editora},? Thanks!

comment fontspec cannot find fonts on Ubuntu
honestly, it's hard to tell at this point, since I installed and uninstalled so many times. if you could tell me how I can wipe the installation clean and install it again I would be very grateful. I need a lot of language packages so I guess a full install would be best?

Yes. This is the preamble: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{mls-hacked} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont{Linux Libertine O} \begin{document}

Now the patching file mls-hacked.sty happens properly, but I still get the NFSS error. Sorry...

I still get LaTeX Error: This NFSS system isn't set up properly. Is it because when I first apply the patch, I get: patching file mls-hacked.sty Hunk #2 succeeded at 19 with fuzz 1. patch unexpectedly ends in middle of line Hunk #4 succeeded at 367 with fuzz 1.

Hmm I did that, applied the patch and compiled the mwe, but got the error message /mls-hacked.tex:5: LaTeX Error: This NFSS system isn't set up properly. And also mls-hacked/mls-hacked.sty:668: LaTeX Error: Command \G already defined.

I get this: Hunk #2 succeeded at 19 with fuzz 1. Hunk #3 FAILED at 56. Hunk #4 FAILED at 115. Hunk #5 FAILED at 147. Hunk #7 succeeded at 367 with fuzz 1. Hunk #8 FAILED at 451. Hunk #9 FAILED at 616. 5 out of 9 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file mls-hacked.sty.rej I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm on Mac OS.

does applying the patch means copying and pasting that contents into the end of the .sty file? or replacing the contents of the .sty with that contents?

Thank you! I do need xelatex because I use it to typeset CJK, which is also in my real document

comment MonTeX and XeLaTeX fonts
It is right! It's just that they seem to be using the same font now, but if I understand it correctly I can use all the commands found in the original package now that a modified version of it is loaded, meaning I can modify it as I would with the regular package?

comment fontspec and xeCJK conflict: tie (\t{}) over Latin character displaced one position
Actually, that might have been why it worked! I just updated all packages yesterday before noticing that it had started working
