I have a document that frequently uses the
\vec command from the amsmath package. I decided I wanted to make all the vectors boldfaced, so I added the following
Now when I try to compile the document (using Texmaker), it says, 'Process started,' indefinitely; no errors appear. At first I thought that it might be caused by the document having to update all the existing
\vec commands already, but I don't believe that would cause compile times like this (its been trying to compile for several minutes now)
If I remove the
\renewcommand then it compiles near instantaneously.
Does anybody know what may be causing this?
Edit: I just tried using the following \newcommand
and then I replaced all existing
\vec commands with
\vecbf. This solution works and compiles very quickly. I can continue using this solution, but I don't understand why renew command doesn't work.
Edit 2: I think I know why
\renewcommand doesn't work in the way I used it, but I'm not positive. I believe it is because I'm using the command I'm renewing in the renewed definition, causing a sort of infinite loop.
