I'm Edd. I'm a Computer Science graduate from the University of Bath, currently working as a software developer at Ocado, in Hatfield, UK. I've experience working in a number of industries, including military and civil engineering, and working on very different types of project.

I reguarly code in C, C++ and Objective-C, and have experience using Python, Java, PHP and Ada as well as the basics such as Bash-scripting. I'm keen to learn C# and the .Net framework in the near future. I'm happy to work with html and XML, and I typeset the vast majority of my university work using LaTeX.

Outside of work, I'm a keen photographer. I'm a Canon user, shooting with a 5D. I'm interested in landscapes and cityscapes, as well as bits of sports photography. I'm wanting to learn more about how I can use flash to enhance my photos.

comment How can I get the section.subsection number without the chapter number?
Perfect, thanks. I knew it'd be something obvious, I just didn't know how to search for it!

comment How can I get the section.subsection number without the chapter number?
Is it worth me generalising this question a bit and removing my particular example of wanting to use the value in a list, or should I leave the question as is?

comment Custom figure insertion in tex document
@pban2 Is it possible to replicate the problem using something like the [blindtext](ctan.org/pkg/blindtext) package to insert dummy text and a similarly sized placeholder image? This would mean we'd have a MWE to understand the specifics of this problem.

@pmav99 That would be a much better solution that I was unaware of. Do you want to post that and I'll delete my answer (assuming I can still delete accepted answers)

comment How to add custom C++ keywords to be recognized by Minted?
@pmav99 Thanks. I know it's not a good method it's just the only way I know. I've converted the disadvantages to a list and included yours to try and make it clear this is very non-ideal.

comment Custom figure insertion in tex document
Can you provide a minimum working example required to produce this, and provide a link to (or possibly hardcode the dimensions of) the image. It may be that there is not enough room after the initial text on Pg2 to fit the figure in.

comment How to obtain clear printed graphics with PCTeX v6
Welcome to TeX.StackExchange. Would it be possible to provide a MWE and image to show what's causing your problem and what it looks like? As an aside, StackExchange sites don't require users to include a greeting in their posts.

@Sharpie Beat me to. I've deleted mine as I didn't notice the "answer added" bar.

@Ulrike I'd re-write your comment as an answer with the brief explanation given above so this question can be closed.

comment Commenting out large sections
Can you explain the sort of situations you want to do this in? If, for example, it's to reduce compile times when writing a long document then you may find it best to use something like the subfiles package. This would mean you don't have to remove the commented out sections before compiling the whole document, but you could still compile individual parts of the document with the proper preamble, and without changing anything except for which file you pass to LaTeX.

comment Hard whitespace
@PEdroArthur The issue, I think, is more that there have been a number of suggested solutions using plain TeX, and using plain TeX is one of the main requirements of the question. Because your suggestion does not use plain TeX, it can't be considered a valid answer, and is superfluous.

comment XML highlighting - different style for attributes
Absolutely no problem. I was just curious as to whether this fixed your problem or whether there was something deeper to investigate. I'm not so fussed about the upvote/answer to be honest!

comment Replacing greek glyphs in math mode
Hi Christoph! Welcome to tex.sx! This is a very good question, that unfortunately I don't feel able to answer, but someone probably will! It's not necessary to sign your questions or answers (as there is already a box with your username below it) or to begin them with a greeting, as this is more of a q&a site than a conventional forum.

comment How do I use pdfliteral with tikz?
Welcome to tex.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, then they are marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "101010" on it).

comment How to get text flow to start one column at a time for multiple columns?
Can you provide a minimal workinge example (tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=minxampl) so that we can see what you have at present and better understand what you're trying to describe?

comment Compiling partial documents (without document tags)
As much for future reference as anything else, the subfiles package does a very similar thing to standalone by allowing you to build all of your *.tex files using the preamble and document class/parameters from the main *.tex file, and so may be considered by future viewers of this question if they don't want the document class of subfiles to default to article, which I think standalone does.

Thanks; that worked a treat - it was that line and simply adding an escaped ? term did the trick nicely. I'll email Jeremy.
