A new list for TeX meetings

Posted on November 21, 2014 by Some TeX Developments Feed

Keeping a track of what TeX meetings are going on can be tricky. To help us all keep up, Karl Berry has just set up a new mailing list: TeX meetings. The idea is simple: it gives everyone a single place to post notices of meetings upcoming, and so to track what is happening in […]

2014-11-15 LaTeX-narrow-to-environment

Posted on November 15, 2014 by Content AND Presentation Feed

Hitting C-x n C-h gives a short overview of what narrowing commands are there available in Emacs. Unfortunately, narrow-to-defun does not (as I hoped) narrow to the current environment in LaTeX. This is Emacs, however, so why not fix this problem?

How do I properly cite a preprint in `biblatex`?

Posted on November 11, 2014 by On music, computing and math Feed

This question has been nagging me for a while, and thanks to TeX – LaTeX Stack Exchange I have found an answer: Audrey’s answer to the question What should BibTeX for arXiv entries look like? references the file biblatex-examples.bib where the entries baez/article and baez/online indicate how it should be done. If you are referencing […]

Présentation des auteurs dans la bibliographie finale

Posted on November 3, 2014 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

Dans une bibliographie finale, avec le style bibliographique verbose, le premier nom d'auteur est affiché sous la forme « Nom, Prénom », tandis que les autres noms d'auteur d'une même entrée sont affichés sous la forme « Prénom Nom ». On pourrait vouloir avoir systématiquement la forme « Nom, Prénom ». Comment faire ? Le problème Soit l'entrée suivante : @Bookrobel, Author = Robel, Lauren and Zoller, Elisabeth, Location = Paris, Publisher = Presses Universitaires de France, Subtitle = (...) - BibLaTeX

Gestions des œuvres anonymes : méthode encore plus simple

Posted on October 27, 2014 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

J'avais proposé dans un article comment gérer des œuvres anonymes. J'avais également indiqué dans un autre article comment procéder à un tri des œuvres anonymes. Les deux contributions avaient été fusionnées en un package. En voulant améliorer ce package, je me suis aperçu qu'il y avait une méthode beaucoup plus simple. Explication. Nos besoins Nous voulons que pour certains types d'entrées seul le champ author soit utilisé : Comme référent pour le classement bibliographique. Comment auteur dans la (...) - BibLaTeX

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 ...

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 […]
