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 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.

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.
