2

I am new on LaTeX and I have a problem with a sublist with enumerate.

The content is in Greek and the Wizard of TexMaker has automatically added this part of the code:

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[greek]{babel}

So, everything I write in the editor is in Greek (even if I write it in English, it automatically changes it to Greek).

The problem I have is in the labels of a sublist. The first list has numbers like 1 -> 2 -> 3 -> ....

The sublist has greek letters which is ok but I have two issues here. The labels are like this α' -> β' -> γ' -> δ' -> ε' -> þ'

1) Is there any way to remove the apostrophe? I have tried to include before the \begin{document} this line \renewcommand{\textdexiakeraia}{} but it doesn't work.

2) The second problem is the sixth letter. It should be στ whereas it is another character.

I use TexMaker 4.3 with MikTex 2.9

Edit: Here is a MWE

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper,twoside]{report}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[greek]{babel}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[width=150mm,top=25mm,bottom=25mm,bindingoffset=6mm]{geometry}

\renewcommand{\textdexiakeraia}{}

\begin{document}
   \begin{enumerate}
    \item 
       \begin{enumerate}
          \item $45 = 45$
          \item $38 > 36$
          \item $ 456 < 465$
          \item $8.765 < 8970$
          \item $90.876 > 86.945$
          \item $345 < 5.690$ 
        \end{enumerate}
    \item ...
    \item ...
    \end{enumerate}
\end{document}

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) 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}. In particular, problem 2 is unclear without a MWE. – egreg Sep 16 '14 at 14:33
  • @egreg Sorry for that. I have edited my question with a MWE. – Tasos Sep 16 '14 at 14:37
  • No need to be sorry! :-) – egreg Sep 16 '14 at 14:43
  • This picture shows what I got from your very code. Maybe you need to update your MiKTeX. – egreg Sep 16 '14 at 14:46
  • The last label on the sublist is wrong in base of what greek books use. We use στ instead of this symbol. However, after googling, I saw that the right one is the one from LaTeX. As for the apostrophe, I have the latest MiKTeX from the official site. – Tasos Sep 16 '14 at 14:52

If I use

\renewcommand{\textdexiakeraia}{}

I get no apostrophe (properly, number sign) in second level enumerated lists. The symbol for 6 is “stigma” (U+03DB); if you want to output the combination στ instead of ϛ, you can redefine \textstigma:

\renewcommand{\textstigma}{\textsigma\texttau}

Complete example:

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper,twoside]{report}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[greek]{babel}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[width=150mm,top=25mm,bottom=25mm,bindingoffset=6mm]{geometry}

\renewcommand{\textdexiakeraia}{}
\renewcommand{\textstigma}{\textsigma\texttau}

\begin{document}
   \begin{enumerate}
    \item
       \begin{enumerate}
          \item $45 = 45$
          \item $38 > 36$
          \item $ 456 < 465$
          \item $8.765 < 8970$
          \item $90.876 > 86.945$
          \item $345 < 5.690$
        \end{enumerate}
    \item ...
    \item ...
    \end{enumerate}
\end{document}

It seems you have an outdated distribution, in particular babel and babel-greek.

  • Looks like that neither \renewcommand{\textdexiakeraia}{} \renewcommand{\textstigma}{\textsigma\texttau} works on me. Maybe I miss something here. :( – Tasos Sep 16 '14 at 15:25
  • @AnastasiosVentouris With that exact code? – egreg Sep 16 '14 at 15:28
  • Yes. I copy paste your code and it doesn't work. Neither the apostrophe or the label. Maybe it does matter that I have the 64bit MiKTeX? – Tasos Sep 16 '14 at 15:29
  • Can you add \listfiles at the top of the document and report what is written at * File List * in the .log file, adding it to your question? – egreg Sep 16 '14 at 15:31
  • I have added it :) – Tasos Sep 16 '14 at 15:35
