I'm a Mathematician working as a Staff Tutor at the Open University in Cardiff, Wales.

I use LaTeX for all of my documents- exams, handouts, etc.

I've been a LaTeX enthusiast for a number of years, but have only recently started to learn about the internals. I have a lot to learn- this site has taught me a lot and I'm looking forward to learning more.

I'm also the author of latexindent.pl available on ctan: http://www.ctan.org/pkg/latexindent

Meta:

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look on [our starter guide](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/1436) to familiarize yourself further with our format.

comment arara with indent.yaml works in command line but not in TeXmaker
Nice answer, glad you were able to work through it. If you're on Windows, you might also like TeXnicCenter or NotePad++ which reload the file automatically and ask for a simple confirmation from the user :)

comment arara with indent.yaml works in command line but not in TeXmaker
@texenthusiast thanks for the updates; I certainly agree that the module implementation isn't ideal--I think I need to make latexindent.pl choose the appropriate modules from the distribution, not from tlperl.

comment arara with indent.yaml works in command line but not in TeXmaker
@texenthusiast you need to use your perl distribution to install yaml::tiny. Once you've done that, all should be good :)

comment List independent of surrounding list
@mimi just to clarify: you'd like one instance of a second level enumerate to behave in one way, and another instance to behave in another?

comment arara with indent.yaml works in command line but not in TeXmaker
It's nice to see latexindent.pl being used :) It's a good sign that it works from the command line. You only need one arara directive for latexindent; in your MWE you have two directives--the first doesn't overwrite your source, the second does. I'll have a look at this as well--I haven't used TeXmaker before...

comment Table from a defined layout / template for input
Welcome to the site! A good question :) We've had a few like it before -- have a search for pgfplotstable

comment How to draw this diagram
Welcome to the site :) Search this site for tikz-cd or tikz commutative diagrams; if possible, it'd be great if you could post some attempt at what you've tried so far--once you have got part of the way there, you could update your question with the specific issue you have :)

comment How to Use Arara in TexStudio
Did you install the full texlive? If so, how did you install it? Did you use apt-get? If you use the method illustrated in tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1092/… then arara and latexindent should work pretty much out of box -- let us know, and hopefully we can help :)

comment Combining LaTeX files with different formatting
if you would mention the pdfpages package, and link to a question or two on this site that demonstrates its use, I'd vote for your answer :)

Welcome to the site! Try removing the blank lines and see if that gets you closer :)

comment A function is not being plotted on part of its domain
@Jake I was thinking either Pgfplots : can't plot some usual mathematical functions or How to plot x^(1/3)?

comment A function is not being plotted on part of its domain
@jake: not the one I was thinking of, but close enough :) can you use your magic gold-badge powers to close as duplicate?

comment A function is not being plotted on part of its domain
Rational exponents are calculated using logarithms -- I conjecture that your issue is the same as the one that has been asked previously with cube roots

I think this question has been asked before, perhaps by Peter Grill...

One down vote is enough to make the point. To Kit: welcome to the site! It'd be great if you could show us what you have so far, perhaps a possible starting point from which the community can continue

There's a few questions on this site about this -- search for colormap pgfplotstable to get started :)

presumably the OP meant 2013-5-28,6290 to be 2013-5-31,6290?...
