LaTeX Beginners Guide


I'm a TeX enthusiast. After studying mathematics in Jena and Hamburg I've been working as IT Admin and Communication Officer onboard of cruise ships. Pictures of those years can be found on twentyknots.com.

Now I'm employed as a IT Network & Security Engineer for a cruise company.

For some years I've been working as a freelance programmer, since many years I'm working with LaTeX. I'm a friend of Linux and Ubuntu user.

I'm maintaining

and I'm an active user in several math forums such as on matheplanet.com.

comment Glossary not printed issue on ShareLatex
@user59763 I converted your answer into a comment, seems to match better. Actually it looks like a question, so it may be good if you would create a new question instead of putting it into an answer.

comment How should I fix the “Option clash for package babel” connected with “undefined control sequence” with hyperref?
Fixed without a clear description, so I closed it. Nice to read that it works now.

Very good solution, thank you!

comment Rotation transformation of a parametrized plot
Very nice! Btw. the memory exhaustion can be avoided simply using LuaLaTeX. I did, and I got surprisingly different results just by changing samples y to 30 and 50.

comment Rotation transformation of a parametrized plot
@m0nhawk Yes - though a conjured up ready-to-plot but complex function is nice, I would like to learn about applying rotation transformations in 3d. It would be great if we could work out even a generic macro for it.

@Chris I extended my answer a bit. Yes, it's worth a bug report.

comment Using tikz to create fancy chapters
As it's solved, I closed it, because there were just paragraph breaks which in fact were not desired but problematic, no further answers needed.

comment Another TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [input stack size=5000]
@thuanle Thanks, so as it's fixed with TeX Live 2014, I closed it.

comment I try to compile (XeLaTeX) and Texmaker goes on endless loop
Instead of throwing a huge document here, you could reduce it as much as you can, before posting. This would be great - you still can edit your question. If you would reduce in steps and re-compile, it could even help you to locate the error position.

comment LaTeX templates for writing a thesis
@JosephWright It's accessible via archive.org. I added this. Can it stay then? Besides historical interests ;-) it still can be browsed and read and the templates can be accessed.

comment LaTeX templates for writing a thesis
@RatulSaha It's blocked but not definitely gone, perhaps hacked and blocked by the provider, we could watch it for a time if it comes back.

comment Creating a Polar Grid with Tikz
Very nice plot! I added it to the TeXample TikZ gallery, plus the Pythagorean triangle example with that great explanation. Is that ok for you? Your two examples are shown here: author page. I would be happy to add further ones.

comment Error Latex TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [input stack size=5000]
Is it a damaged file, or a defective version? If the latter, perhaps tell us the name of the problem sty file.

comment What is the clearest way to graph a piecewise function?
You created a lot of very good PSTricks examples. Would you like the idea of a PSTricks gallery in the very same shape as the TikZ gallery? I could setup a server with the same structure (based on PostgreSQL and Django) but exclusively for PSTricks. Would be a nice showcase and useful for new users. I could care for gallery maintainance and feeding in content, which is sent to me by email or taken from here.

comment Multicolum Table
Welcome to TeX.SE! Please poste the code that you already have, so not every helping reader would need to type that all again.

comment PDF randomly does not show parts of the text without errors in compilation
Nice to read that you were able to solve it. As it's a bit unclear (and solved) I closed the question. You can still comment or vote to reopen if you would like to write an answer.

@JimStanev Sure, it's a way for hyperref, just hyperref wasn't mentioned at all.

comment Using ntheorem with beamer?
@Meneldur beamer documentation ;-) otherwise just deactivate what you notice in an error message or warning.
