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 Python “as” keyword ignored in Listings
For bugs it is best to email the package maintainer, but I'd wait some time to see if someone provides an explanation here. But still good that you posted the question in case someone else encounters a similar issue.

comment Python “as” keyword ignored in Listings
Using \lstset{otherkeywords={as}} seems to work. From the documentation it appears that otherkeywords is intended to be used for keywords that may contain other characters or begin with numbers, so perhaps it is a bug that morekeywords did not work.

comment Free TeX/LaTeX software products whose installation on Windows 7 is relatively simple
I would recommend you download the entire TeXLive 2012 distribution (a few GB). Disk space is so cheap these days that trying to save a few GB for something you only need 1 copy of is not worth the hassle. Then use TeXworks or some other editor of your choice. TeXShop IMO is better, but that is not available on a PC.

@Spike: That sure sounds like an answer to me. Not sure why there is a vote to close as "off-topic" as it seems to be very much TeX related.

Ok, point taken. Was using this in a possible solution to Print macro output instead of executing and took me some time to figure out what was going on...

I think the \edef be an \xdef as then it works independent of where \AddRef is called from.

comment Unexpected results from pgfmath functions with numbers with leading 0
Martin can you elaborate on why using \the\numexpr <number>\relax would limit the usefulness of using \pgfmath. This seems to be working for me but just wanted to make sure that there is not some other problem with this. Also, using \pgfmathparse{\removeleadingzeros{31} - \removeleadingzeros{07}}\pgfmathresult yields Argument of \removeleadingzeros has an extra }., but works fine if I replaced the 07 with just 7.

comment Accessing randomly selected problems via the probsoln package
No I don't think TeXShop is the issue - I used v2.47 and works fine with that. You should add \listfiles before \begin{document}. For me I have enumitem.sty 2011/09/28 v3.5.2, but I suspect it is something else that needs to be updated. You could try updating to see if there are any packages that need updating.
