Con­grats and thanks

I have lit­tle to do with Sciences or Maths, but my boss is Pro­fes­sor at Univer­si­dad Politéc­nica de Madrid (a tech­ni­cal Univer­sity). He told me about LaTeX and I de­cided to give it a try. It's soooooooo nice!!! :) I'm cur­rently study­ing LIS and I use LaTeX for all my home­work. That wouldn't be pos­si­ble with­out you, CTAN peo­ple, so thanks!!

This is great!

I am very grate­ful for your huge con­tri­bu­tion. Now I can ap­ply my own style to cre­ate a bib­li­og­ra­phy list. Thanks a lot again.

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!
