I'm just a single point on a complex plane. I'm not the strongest species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. I always feel restless despite being in the safe zone. You can't teach me anything, but you can stimulate me to think! I am a detail-oriented analyst and interested in almost everything. Consistency, optimization, best-practice, & perfection are always my first priority in mind! Therefore by my questions & answers you'll fully recognize me. I can tell you more but then I have to kill you.

I distribute my rep in bounties as spending money for my & your pleasure is more meaningful than saving money in a bank & abandoning it unused.

"If you're an underdog, mentally disabled, physically disabled, if you don't fit in, if you're not as pretty as the others, you can still be a hero, read TEXBook!"

"Motivation isn't enough. If you've an idiot & you motivate him, now you've a motivated idiot."

Learning (La)TeX, PSTricks, & PGF/TikZ is similar to learning how to swim or drive a car. You don’t get the full benefit by watching someone else do it. Your own fingers must get involved.

Don't be lukewarm! If you cannot be the best, be the worst!

Beauty without intelligence is a masterpiece painted on a toilet paper.

For every problem, there is always a solution that is simple, neat, but wrong.

Best practices

  1. Use pdflatex \input{filename} instead of pdflatex filename.
  2. Don't specify the file extension in \includegraphics.
  3. Divide your project into a main & smaller input files & compile the main with pdflatex.
  4. Put each code snippet 4 either drawing a diagram or making a table into a standalone input file & compile it to produce a PDF.
  5. Define global macros 4 often-used materials, put them into a separate package thereby changing the macros in one place will effect the whole document.
  6. Remove unnecessary packages.
  7. Don't mix different series, families, font size, & shapes, ESPECIALLY IN ONE SENTENCE.
  8. Obey.


comment Having some page with roman number before beginning of document
+1 \renewcommand{\thepage}{} will not reset the number but resume. So you have to say 4,... rather than 1,... in the code comment.

comment Centering an image vertically
Thanks PSTricks for helping me to prove it geometrically.
comment Centering an image vertically
@DavidCarlisle: I see. In this answer I mainly just concentrated on the vertical alignment.

comment Drawing of Euro Symbol Using PSTricks
@Werner: I see. Directing deleted links to the question for lower-rep users seems to be a bad feature implemented in SX because it is confusing/misleading. :-)
comment How to write c# programing on adobe page maker document file (.PMD)?
A subset of LaTeX macros is available in MathJaX which is a javascript to render those macros on the browser. So you need to express your math stuffs in LaTeX format, save them along with the text into a database, retrieve them all, and display as HTML. It is not difficult.
comment How can I use \psgraph with polar axes?
Oh my ghost. What you did is almost identical to what I already did. I will show it shortly.

Try $\operatorname{Re}(z)=a$.
