Re: Some Latex Commands

Over the year(s ?), I have caught myself wondering if our Latex-proficient counting machine friend has some sort of template or pre-set form for replies (I mean... talk about consistent!). While this seems unlikely, it would be rather useful to have some sort of greasemonkey (user scripts for Firefox) app or toolbar specifically for latex. I use a "character palette", but that usually gets me into trouble because various browsers interpret the symbols differently.

So... does anybody know how to do this? If possible, there should be a "soroban" plugin. Also, an "islam" plugin (where all formatting, capitalization, spelling, and grammar are FUBAR).

Should I start a "kickstarter.com" project and post the link here ???

Re: Some Latex Commands

I think my question fits here.
Is there no 'equation editor' on this forum, because my computer (=mac) doesn't support some keys to put in some operators.

No. Many use http://codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php , at least initially.

Hello, The Chaz!

I'm delighted that you're familiar with that acronym!

Are you acquainted with FUBB? (Fouled up beyond belief)

I came up with my own: MIFUSTI
[color=beige]. . [/color](Most incredible foul-up since time immemorial.)

Re: Some Latex Commands

As "FUBAR" is often used in the military, I can't help but wonder if our esteemed LaTex guru is also a vet...???

Re: Some Latex Commands


There are a fewspacing commands . . .

[color=beige]. . [/color]


I use them constantly.
The LaTeX on this forum is the "lazy" type
[color=beige]. . [/color]without appropriate spacing.

On most sites, there is space before and after any arithmetic operation.
[color=beige]. . [/color]So that produces
But on this forum, we get:




[color=beige]. . [/color]which comes from:


I find that the color beige is virtually invisible at this site.

So I can use: [color=beige ]. . [/color] to indent.

[color=beige]. . [/color]as I did here.

Re: Some Latex Commands



Of course, you have to do a line feed manually or it falls off the page, but you can still do all the math stuff as text.

Re: Some Latex Commands

Hello, Erimess!

I knew about using \text . . . perhaps others will like it and use it.

But I prefer the algebra written in italics.
[color=beige]. . [/color]

Small difference, but it's worth it . . . to me anyway.

Re: Some Latex Commands

Actually, I agree with you... I just think quicker and easier has now won out over my analness for italics.
