comment LaTeX cookbook?
Not a duplicate: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/20549/a-cookbook-in-latex :). Is there a specific reason you tagged this {texniques}? I'm afraid this might be a meta-tag, which are not everybody's favorite tags, to put it carefully. How about {learning} and/or {tutorials}?

@Dr.HeikoVoss It looks like you accidentally created another account (11403 vs. 11420). I flagged this answer, so a mod will come along and probably merge your accounts.

comment How to make glossaries and nomenclature work together?
The same applies to this question as to your other questions: Please include a minimal working example (MWE) that other users can compile to reproduce your problem. And please stop using two periods .. after sentences, that's just unnecessary editing work.

comment What is the status of generating LaTeX from handwriting (i.e., OCR)?
I was just scribbling around when I figured my scribbling might make for a nice example screenshot. I don't usually deal with maths, so if anybody thinks we need a more sophisticated example, do go ahead.

comment What is the status of generating LaTeX from handwriting (i.e., OCR)?
@BrunoLeFloch: This is where I like to differentiate between characters and symbols: Roughly saying, the things on your keyboard are characters (unless you're using Neo) -- these usually can be input directly in LaTeX and they won't be recognized by Detexify; it doesn't recognize any normal Latin letters. Other glyphs that actually represent something are symbols. $ means dollar, means infinity -- but w doesn't mean anything.

Detexify is not made for handwriting as input, but for a mouse-scribbled symbol that should look as similar to the printed symbol as possible. This is decisively different from handwriting recognition. Furthermore, Detexify isn't made for recognizing more than one symbol at once and most likely never will be, unless its purpose is changed. Saying it is "the status of generating LaTeX from handwriting" is like saying "cars are the status of flying submarines" -- they really suck at that and they'll never be good at it, unless their purpose undergoes a serious change.

I don't think this is a valid answer to this question. While it would be entirely unpractical if it worked, it doesn't even work: I attempted drawing an e and an E, and Detexify didn't recognize them, obviously, because it's only designed for recognizing symbols that need to be input via a special command, not by a single character.
