@TH. Thanks for this detailed explanation.

comment \bm package versus \boldsymbol
Thanks. If bm is slower, then I guess sticking to \boldsymbol may be a better choice. Using \boldsymbol I guess will be better than a poor man's bold? Is this correct?

comment How to get a vertical bar which is longer than \mid ?
@TH. Yes you're indeed right. Thanks for pointing this out. I tried another funny example: \biggr ( x \bigl ) and LaTeX compiles it. I always thought that the r or l was denoting the right and left and that u can't have a r before the occurrence of an l.

@TH. But the \biggr can't be used on its own. It must have a corresponding \biggl to start with.

Thanks it works fine. I was using \rvert earlier also. My problem is that I used a custom partial derivative formulation from: tug.org/TUGboat/Articles/tb18-1/tb54becc.pdf .This was causing problems with the size of the vertical bar following the partial derivatives.

comment taking unncessary space after e.g. or i.e.
Thanks. When I write "for example" in full, then I use a comma before and after. But when writing its abbreviation then I don't use any commas at all.

Check out modlaprint also: hermes.mt.ltu.se/texcourse/doc/modlaprint.m Well u just have to place modlaprint and laprint in the same folder. And you can forget it afterwards.
