comment Capitalising the first letter of an acronym?
This is ideal, thanks. Do you mind if I point one of the maintainers to this post so that it might be integrated into the package?
comment Capitalising the first letter of an acronym?
@Stefan That seems to be asking how to capitalise the first letter in the acronym list; I want a way to optionally capitalise the first letter of the expanded acronym when used in text (and I'm not sure how to adapt what was suggested in the answers for my purposes). I was hoping there'd be a family of commands like \Acl, \Acf, etc. that would do this, but it seems there isn't. (Maybe the author should introduce these?)
comment How productive are you with TikZ?
Another argument for TikZ is that it provides a human-readable, self-descriptive textual representation of your diagram, making it very well-suited to version control.
comment Table reference
@Tim: I'm not entirely sure! If anyone else could answer this I'd be interested to hear.
