Baum oder nicht Baum

Posted on April 16, 2017 by Feed

Heute sah ich eine ältere unbeantwortete Frage auf TeX.SE. Der Anlass war, mehrere Bäume zu zeichnen, die durch eine Linie verbunden sind. Am Ende kann man das wieder als Baum sehen, und etwas in komplizierter verschachtelter Baum-Syntax basteln, doch ich dachte mir, das kann man unbefangen in normalem TikZ angehen: Ein paar Stile für Knoten-Typen …

Posted on April 15, 2017 by Feed

Gerade sah ich ein QAPF-Diagramm, das interessant aussah: Das lässt sich sicher auch gut mit TikZ machen: Eckpunkte festlegen Punkte auf den Seitenlinien bestimmen (calc-Syntax) Punkte in der Mitte bestimmen Diverse Schnittpunkte bestimmen (intersections-Library) Dann mit den Inhalten loslegen: Bereiche anhand der bestimmten Schnittpunkte mit Farbe füllen Inmitten der Flächen einige Text-Nodes setzen Linien ziehen …

Chapter numbers as words in LaTeX

Posted on April 11, 2017 by Blog on Latex Matters Feed

I was asked more than once how to produce words instead of numbers in the chapter heading. This is fairly straight forward, but requires patching the chapter macro. I will show how to do this for chapter. However, this works similarly for part, section, and subsection.   Loading the required packages First we load the ... [Read more...]

Une liste des abréviations des champs bibliographique

Posted on April 11, 2017 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

Dans une précédente contribution, j'expliquais comment obtenir une liste des abréviations de collection. Ceci ne permettait cependant pas de gérer une liste mélangeant les abréviations de plusieurs champs, par exemple les abréviations de collection et les abréviation des titres de revue. Suite à la demande d'Hélène Wiener, j'ai conçu le package biblatex-shortfields qui permet de gérer de tels cas. Le problème Le mécanisme de \printbiblist ne gère pas nativement la fusion de plusieurs types d'abréviations, (...) - BibLaTeX

LaTeX et correction d'orthographe : une astuce

Posted on April 9, 2017 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

On m'a demandé récemment de relire un travail conséquent rédigé en LaTeX pour, je cite, « pour en éliminer les fautes d'orthographe et de langue ». L'orthographe n'étant pas mon fort, j'utilise un correcteur externe, dont le nom signifie « antipoison ». Le problème avec LaTeX est que, du fait notamment de la surabondance de commandes d'abréviation, l'analyse du correcteur échoue régulièrement. J'ai donc décidé de faire la correction sur le PDF final. Il m'a cependant fallu l'adapter pour « mâcher » le (...) - LaTeX

Posted on April 1, 2017 by Content AND Presentation Feed

I use AUCTeX pretty heavily; in fact, it was one of the first things I ever used in Emacs, way before I learned any Elisp or did any serious (or less serious) programming. Some time ago I noticed that sometimes (and I’m not sure what triggers this, though I have some suspicions) the word Compiling will stay in the modeline forever. It bugged me a bit, so I asked about it on the mailing list, and Oleh Krehel (of Ivy and Lispy fame) shared this simple solution: (setq compilation-in-progress nil). It’s not really a clean solution, but it works.
