Removing/hiding a column in a LaTeX table

Posted on October 24, 2014 by Blog on Latex Matters Feed

It’s easy to add, remove, or shift rows. Just copy-and-paste or delete the corresponding line in the table. Removing columms is a different story. You might be able to come up with some sophisticated regular expression, which removes the right value in every row. Otherwise, the only way is to use another program or to ...

Debian/TeX Live for jessie 2014.20141024-1

Posted on October 24, 2014 by There and back again Feed

The freeze day for the next stable release of Debian, jessie, is approaching, and so I did a last pull from tlnet. Together with the recently (build from current svn sources), this will (probably) be what will be contained in Debian/jessie. Packages are on the way to the servers and should arrive at end users […] The post Debian/TeX Live for jessie 2014.20141024-1 appeared first on There and back again.

2014-10-18 Version Control Systems

Posted on October 19, 2014 by Content AND Presentation Feed

It is very often the case that one works on a certain document (it might be a scientific paper, it might be a book, it might be a newspaper article, it might be a master’s thesis – whatever) and from time to time one wants to revert some changes („this wasn’t that brilliant idea I thought it was”), or highlight the changes made since the last reading by the advisor, or be able to check which parts of the file were last edited on what date, or any similar thing. In general, knowing what part of the file changed from what and when is occasionally quite useful.

Bibliographie, césure et multilinguisme

Posted on October 16, 2014 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

Une bibliographie est souvent multilingue. Si bien souvent on préféra conserver les termes techniques (éditeurs, traducteurs etc.) dans la langue du document principal, il peut cependant être nécessaire d'adapter la césure des champs bibliographiques. Comment faire ? Le problème Soit une entrée en grec : @proceedingsDetorakes1985.2, Address = Héracleion, Editor = Δετοράκης, Θεοχάρης, Publisher = Εταιρεία Κρητικών Ιστορικών Μελετών, Subtitle=Αγιος Νικόλαος, 25 Σεπτεμβρίου - 1 Οκτωβρίου 1981, Title = (...) - BibLaTeX

Beamer overlays beyond the \visible

Posted on October 13, 2014 by Some TeX Developments Feed

I wrote earlier this year about using the beamer overlay concept with relative slide specifications to produce dynamic slide structures. Another question about overlays came up recently on TeX StackExhange, but this time wanting to do something a bit different. The ‘standard’ beamer overlay system does the same as the \visible command: makes things appear […]

Animating TikZ Graphics

Posted on October 13, 2014 by Uwe Ziegenhagen Feed

After drawing the cubic Bezier a few days ago I wanted to animate it. Using the animate package this is fairly simple: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[paperwidth=5.5cm,paperheight=5.3cm,left=0cm,right=0cm,bottom=0cm,top=0.25cm]{geometry} \usepackage{tikz} \definecolor{fom}{RGB}{0,153,139}   \newcommand{\dat}{0.7} % 0.67 \usepackage{animate}   \begin{document}   \begin{animateinline}[poster=last, controls, palindrome]{10} \multiframe{70}{Ry=0.1+0.01}{ \begin{tikzpicture}[x=4cm,y=4cm] \draw[line width=1pt,lightgray] (0,0) -- (1,1); \draw (0,0) -- (1,0) -- (1,1) -- (0,1) -- (0,0); \draw […]

Drawing Bezier Curves with TikZ

Posted on October 11, 2014 by Uwe Ziegenhagen Feed

To visualize an example for cubic-Bezier CSS animations (http://cubic-bezier.com) I decided to try TikZ. That was in fact a pretty good idea, as — with the help of Google (and mostly tex.stackexchange.com) I managed to complete the following example in just a few minutes: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[paperwidth=5.5cm,paperheight=5.3cm,left=0cm,right=0cm,bottom=0cm,top=0.25cm]{geometry} \usepackage{tikz} \definecolor{fom}{RGB}{0,153,139} \begin{document}   \begin{tikzpicture}[x=4cm,y=4cm] \draw[line width=1pt,lightgray] (0,0) -- […]

LaTeX \\ in externe Dateien schreiben

Posted on October 2, 2014 by Uwe Ziegenhagen Feed

Ich hatte kürzlich die Notwendigkeit, Adressen wie die folgende aus KOMA Briefen in eine externe Datei zu schreiben: \newcommand{\Anschrift}{John Doe \\ Berlin} http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2115379/write-and-read-from-a-latex-temporary-file funktionierte leider nicht, da LaTeX das Schreiben der “\\” bemängelte. Auch der Weg über \unexpanded führte nicht weiter, da LaTeX dann nur den Befehl, nicht die Expansion in die Datei schreibt. Die […]
