I'm an economist by training. I've used LaTeX for more than 20 years, ever since I wrote my Ph.D. dissertation with an early version of LaTeX. I continue to use LaTeX for my working papers, journal articles, and some of my other professional publications.

I am the principal author of the selnolig package, which lets users automatically suppress typographic ligatures that are inappropriate because they span morpheme boundaries, for both English and German language texts.

I once edited an entire conference proceedings volume in LaTeX. At the organization prior to the one I work for now, I wrote a LaTeX package that implements the style and layout requirements the organization had come up with for working papers written by its staff. This package (i) helped up free up much of the authors' time otherwise wasted on figuring out how to implement the guidelines that had been written primarily with users of MS Word in mind and (ii) actually convinced some of our economists to finally make the switch from MS Word to LaTeX for their working papers.


Welcome to TeX.SE!

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

I've just been asked to write a minimal example. What's that?

Please modify your code posting so that it becomes both more minimal as well as actually shows a figure (not) being generated.

The instructions for the xr-hyper package are the same as for the xr package. I'll post a quick answer to explain its functioning.

Welcome to TeX.SE. How does your contribution answer the original query, which was about affecting the size of subscript material that consists of uppercase letters?

comment aligned environment, align numbers to right
Your first and second solutions seem to insert far more white space to the right of the = sign than to the left (even when looking at just the third row). Is there a way to make the position of the = sign more centered?

comment Is it possible make the section names globally title case?
The outcome of this approach -- which renders the first letters of the words also and be (along with the first letters of all other words in the scope of the command) in uppercase -- is not what is generally understood to be titlecase style. In "titlecase" style, the first letters of articles, prepositions, conjunctions, and all conjugated forms of the verb to be should, in genral, be rendered in lowercase.

Oops, just noticed that the word "four" went missing in my earlier comment. The second-to-last sentence should have ended as follows: "... as long as the words contain no more than four characters." Just in case this matters...

@Daniel - I think you may have misunderstood the point of my comment. The issue I was trying to get at is that there appear to be many distinct titlecase styles or conventions. Presumably, some organization or journal requires you to do use titlecase style, right? Unless you provide clarity as to which style you wish to adhere to, there is little point in people trying to come up with their interpretations of what "titlecase" means to them; their interpretations and your needs will coincide only by chance, right?

Note that "titlecase-style" headings would normally (though not universally) not capitalize the first letter of the word "be" in your section header example. Other words that would normally (but, again, not universally) not be capitalized are conjunctions (and, or), articles (the, a, an), all conjugated forms of the verb "to be", and a few more such cases -- as long as the words contain no more than characters... I've posted a comment in the OP asking for a clarification as to which titlecase-style convention is supposed to be used.

Please be a bit more specific as to which titlecase convention you're looking to emulate. E.g., the Wikipedia entry on case styles lists quite a few possibilities for what might qualify as "titlecase style" and notes that there is no universal agreement as to the capitalization of pronouns, articles, prepositions, conjunctions in Titlecase-style headings.
