Why do I downvote questions?

In the last time questions of the just do it for me kind came up more and more on this site and I believe that they have only few or no benefit for this site. I decided to deals with it by downvoting questions that only post the desired result without showing any efforts by the OP.

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at [our starter guide](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/1436) to familiarize yourself further with our format.
  • Please do us a favour and change your username to something more telling than “user1234”.
  • [Welcome to TeX.SX!](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/1436) Please add a [minimal working example (MWE)](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/228) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with\documentclass{...}and ending with\end{document}.
  • [Welcome to TeX.SX](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/1436). Questions about how to draw specific graphics that just post an image of the desired result are really not reasonable questions to ask on the site. Please post a minimal compilable document showing that you've tried to produce the image and then people will be happy to help you with any specific problems you may have. See [minimal working example (MWE)](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/228) for what needs to go into such a document.
  • Maybe worth a look: [Why should the minimal class be avoided?](http://tex.stackexchange.com/q/42114/4918).

Why did you use \scope … \endscope instead of the environment in you first code example?

comment Very smart parentheses?
I mean, that the sue of $…$ is part of your definition for the \hbox an thus al formulas (or parts of) inside of \smart{…} are treaded as inline math, i.e. factions or the limits of \sum etc. are typeset wrong (to small) when I use \smart in a display math environment like {equation}. The equation in my comment is an example where \smart seems to fail. I get round parens for both levels.

comment Very smart parentheses?
I like automated solutions and didm’† think it will be that complicated. I guess doing it manually is much easier anI’ll go with that, but I do alway claim, that LaTeX is able to do every thing, and won’t be wrong here ;-)

comment Very smart parentheses?
Thanks. The problem here is that you explicitly (must) use $…$ so this my corrupts the display styles (e.g. fractions etc.) … furthermore I doesn’t work with $\sum_n \paren{z_{\text{m}\,n} \cdot \cos\paren{\omega_n t + \phi_n}}$ (like Davids answer)

comment Very smart parentheses?
Thanks. It works with your example but not with $\sum_n \paren{z_{\text{m}\,n} \cdot \cos\paren{\omega_n t + \phi_n}}$ so I guess I was wrong claiming that theres no grouping? (PS: May you explain, why you didn’t understand my question so I can improve my english skills ;-))

Hm … at the moment I assume that it will live alway outside a group (except the one created by the math environments).

comment Very smart parentheses?
For cases with more nesting levels, all inner ones can have round parens and only the outermost gets brackets. E.g (( (a) ((b (c))) )) would be [( (a) ((b (c))) )].

comment Very smart parentheses?
At the moment the will be only the cases (a), (a (b)), which should come out as [a (b)], or ((a) (b)), i.e. [(a) (b)]. I’ll take care of the number of nesting levels and I’d implement \innerparens{b} -> (b) and \outerparens{a} -> [a] to make the more complex equations manually.

OK … thank you but do you have an idea how to implement the outer-inner-dependence, which is the main part of my question? ;-)

And can you please explain what’s “wrong” with using the delimiter?

comment Very smart parentheses?
Thanks, but this doesn’t answer the question ;-) To add the delimiters isn’t the problem, but changing the appearance of the outer level depending on the inner level …
