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.

Is this a duplicate of How to put a star (or other symbol) in sections that are “special” (difficult, optional, etc)??

I don't get this output with TeXLive 2014. The output I get is with the title and top line missing as shown here.

comment End of proof symbol in tikz environment
You can try \qed instead (with amsthm). But, it would be helpful if you composed a fully compilable MWE including \documentclass and the appropriate packages that reproduces the problem.

You should consider using \tikzset instead of \tikzstyle as per Should \tikzset or \tikzstyle be used to define TikZ styles?.

comment Sigmoid membership functions with tikz
It would be helpful if you provided a link to an image of what you desire. As this is not a math site, not everyone here is familiar with fuzzy logic so am image would go a long way to clarify what you desire. Furthermore, it would be good if you made some sort of attempt and provided a MWE that shows what your have tried so far.

comment Making TikZ do certain calculations
@MickG: Yep, your understanding is correct. There are other coordinate systems available (see the tikz-pgf manual, or post a new question), but for this particular application, polar coordinates seems the way to go. Perhaps temporarily setting \offset to 0 will make things more obvious as to how the polar coordinates are working.

comment Creating a maintenance log on just one table
If you want more of a database like filtering you could use the datatool package which will provide the most flexibility. There are also options using the collcell package So, it would be best if composed a fully compilable MWE including \documentclass and the appropriate packages that sets up the problem.

comment Creating a maintenance log on just one table
There are many ways to do this and that depends on your particular application. If you know the possible selections of the data you may want before hand you could adapt a solution from Conditional typesetting / build.
