Posted on August 21, 2015 by There and back again Feed

Posted on August 20, 2015 by Blog on Latex Matters Feed

While writing a thesis or working on a large project, the number of files in the main project directory can be overwhelming.

Eigene Zähler in LaTeX & Word 2013 definieren

Posted on August 15, 2015 by Uwe Ziegenhagen Feed

Was ich an LaTeX so schätze, sind die Funktionen zum „Programmieren“ eigener Strukturen. Möchte ich einen Befehl zum Erfassen von Business Requirements erstellen, nutze ich einfach eine Kombination aus \newcounter, \the“counter“ und \addtocounter. \documentclass[12pt,ngerman]{scrartcl} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{babel}   \newcounter{br} \addtocounter{br}{1} \newcommand{\br}[1]{BR--\thebr\stepcounter{br}: #1}   \begin{document} \br{Button einbauen} \br{Zweiten Button einbauen} \end{document} In Word geht das auch, […]

TUG 2015 - Day 3 - second part

Posted on August 11, 2015 by LaTeX Community News Feed

I'd like to complete my report, sorry for delays due to much work, here's the second part of the final day of TUG 2015. Following Julien Cretel's talk about functional data structures in TeX, Hans Hagen made a presentation. The main points were: How far can you go with TeX? Do you really want it? Hans Hagen showed fascinating examples, such as TeX rendered text fed into MetaPost for postprocessing and re-rendering by TeX for justification.
