Learning for Research

Finally had to formally learn this thing for a final lab report. This'll make typing my equations a breeze. Seriously, MS word is not fun to type in equations.

Beginning with Latex using Scrivener


I am beginning with Latex using Scrivener. Hopefully I can master my second step in finding fonts for my first book project based on my PDF documentation for my opensource project.

Primarly I am in search for some Adobe Type 1 fonts that are usable within Scrivener while being easy to integrate.

compile error without *

Hi all,

First of all thanks a lot for your job.

IMO the (pdf)latex compiling process should not give an error when no item* are marked in a multi[multiple] environment it should just check that the sum of fraction=x with x a positive integer is 100 (exactly like the one in the doc with prime integer which gives an error)

Although if I can compile with pdflatex the sourcefile using command like \R for \mathbb{R} once import in moodle it gives me nothing else than printing '\R' and seems to behave against the documentation, is it normal ?

How to contact the author of txfonts

Hi, I am re-installing a newer version of MacTex, and currently running a .tex script for AIP. I encounter an error message on Typeset window: 'txfonts.sty not found.

Does this version of txfonts work to solve this problem? -

I am just trying to avoid overwriting other existing files that may be working already. Thank You!

Edit 'thank you' page in a5 version

Names 'Michael John Downes' & 'Lan Thuy Pham' in page iv of a5 version of pdf file printed incorrectly for they are out of print area. Fix, please. I can read better in that version, but that mistake upset a little.
