comment LaTeX packages for use with revision control
1 vote up. Yes these are very useful and I have been using them for a long time now. You can have these "tracking" information for each of your main tex document and for any subsidiary tex documents. This way you can keep control when you have made changes in one specific file. Unfortunately, there's no way to have these tracking information for your pictures in case you update them.

Ok thanks. I only use the computer modern fonts in TeXLive. I will take a better look at the bm documentation.

@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.
