Idea borrowed from Hendrik Vogt:


[Welcome to TeX.SE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1436).


It would be helpful if you composed a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) including `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages that sets up the problem.

While solving problems can be fun, setting them up is not. Then, those trying to help can simply cut and paste your MWE and get started on solving the problem.


It is always best to compose a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) that illustrates the problem including the `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages so that those trying to help don't have to recreate it.

This will also serve as a test case and ensure that the solution actually works for you.

That way those trying to help can focus on the solution as opposed to setting up the problem test case.


While code snippets are useful in explanations, it is always best to compose a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) that illustrates the problem including the `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages so that those trying to help don't have to recreate it.

This is especially important for `tikz` as there are numerous libraries.

In this case it will actually help to ensure that the solution actually solves your specific problem.

Personally, I have often solved my own problems in the process of reducing the amount of code actually required to reproduce the problem.


A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, then they're marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (`{}`).

I took the liberty to format your post a little. See [this link for more details on available formatting](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/editing-help).


Saying it "does not work" does not provide any useful information with which anyone can provide you with any help. I'd suggest you post a new question and include a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) including `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages that sets up the problem. If your case does not even compile, then ensure that it compiles if that one line is commented. While solving problems can be fun, setting them up is not. Then, those trying to help can simply cut and paste your MWE and get started on solving the problem.


If the solution worked for you please see [How do you accept an answer?](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1852/how-do-you-accept-an-answer) and perhaps [How does accepting an answer work?](http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/5234/how-does-accepting-an-answer-work).


Please see [why should the `minimal` class be avoided?](http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/42114/why-should-the-minimal-class-be-avoided).

comment Chapter Opener in both Right and Left Side
@Balaji: I am not sure I understand what you are asking. If that has to do with text both on left and right side, then please edit the question and elaborate on what you mean. If it has to do with placing figures behind text, that should be a separate question as that is independent of placing text side by side.

comment Placement of an apostrophe after a sum
Welcome to TeX.SE. Perhaps using \sideset{}{'}\sum_{\mathclap{n<k,\;\text{$n$ odd}}} nE_n might be a good idea so that there is not so much additional space after the \sum. This requires the mathtools package (which is useful as it fixes some amsmath issues also).

comment How to change the size of the name of a node, in a tikzpicture
This does not compile for me, so I can't test it, but perhaps try removing \begin{scriptsize} and \end{scriptsize}. Also, you are applying \resizebox which will resize the graphics and the text.

comment Why would my mac running slow after I installed Mactex distribution
I don't see any reason why having MacTeX installed would slow down the computer as TeX is only run while typesetting. The only thing I can think of is the editor that you are using to edit you LaTeX is causing the slowdown.

comment How to make this bar plot visible?
@PrzemysławScherwentke: Yes, as it helps to clarify the question. Not sure I would know what to make of the question without the MWE (although in this case there are numerous packages that are not relevant to the MWE).

comment Braces at the right of rows in a table
@cfr: Totally agree that it is overkill if you just one specific brace in solid black. But, sure comes in handy when you want to do any customizations.

@Panayiotis: As far as a "better" way that is subjective, but I'd recommend using \textbf instead, or \textsl{}, or even \textsl{\textbf{}}.
