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 How do I make pages which were “intentionally left blank”?
@EnthusiasticStudent Perhaps it doesn't use \cleardoublepage which has been redefined here. So you could hook into another macro at that place.

comment Mac OS Yosemite made TeXShop previews unreadably blurred
Is this a comment? On this site, answers are rather expected to be solutions. Thoughts are better suited as comments.

comment Fitting text to a shape in TikZ
@PaulGaborit I could support with the manual. A package would be great, it's already very nice with the current state of the macro. I added one of your example to the gallery. I would also mention it in my upcoming book (of LaTeX examples) if it would be available as package. Even on a personal website, CTAN not required.

Do you already have a piece of code to start?

comment Automatic Errors in already completed latex file
Could be simple syntax errors as \begxn (as you wrote above) instead of \begin. Perhaps post the error messages you got, and some code, as Aradnix recommended. Also, it would be great if you would correct typo errors in your question.

comment \emph or \textit
@Superbest As above, "If you want to get italic text, use \textit". If other italic text would contain the title, it won't be emphasized then. But that's the guide's decision, so be it.

comment Latex code for patch simulation
Please use proper English language and not "u plz ur". I removed some now obsolete comments, which have been read already to keep the discussion focused. Just to better see the remaining technical content (advice such as "be patient" does not need to stay once you read it). Just if I would see such badly readable language again, I would immediately remove. Feel free to come to the TeX chat with such speak. I just fear that our friends in chat might be too grown up for this.

comment progressbar Beamer theme: Errors trying to build an adapted example
For reader's information, it has also been posted on LaTeX-Community.org, so possible solutions may appear there too.

comment How to draw a hierarchical diagram in tikz?
Thank you for the observation, I corrected it on that site. German grammar allows such sentences, so one may easily tend to do it, though I prefer shorter sentences. Easier to read, harder to write well, sometimes. :-)

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.

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.
