scaling in tikz

Hi Kent!

Can you show us an example, where it is not the case, so we can check that?

By the way, for proper and complete scaling you may have to add another option: [..., scale=0.5, transform shape].

Open .tex , compile and PDF creation

Hi, just a quick comment (as I am traveling) - converting dvi to pdf is easy, you should have the tools on your computer, such as dvips and then ps2pdf (usual way) or dvipdfmx or so (don't remember). We may assist further (Johannes knows too). If it's re-working and processing a complex document wit...

Margins When Print PDF

pdfcrop is a Perl script. It usually comes with a TeX installation. I usually just run "pdfcrop filename.pdf" at the command prompt (terminal, shell) to remove margins.

Perhaps take a look here: pdfcrop.

Caption Text Changing Rows

Hi Tim,

welcome to the forum!

This seems to math the parbox with 0.2 line length. Remove that \parbox and its closing brace to see the change.

0.2 of the line width doesn't fit to the table width anyway.

By the way, always use \label directly after a caption.

Hi Tommy! Yes, that's why I recommended to make a full installation, so MiKTeX does not need to download additional packages on the fly. It can do it though, but I'm not sure if it does it perfectly when there is an indirect dependency or a package/bundle name is different to the .sty file name. Of ...

Hi Tommy, maybe you already tried - it's not difficult. With TeXworks, just click "File/Open" in the menu (or "Open with..." in the explorer with TeXworks) and then you just need to choose the compiler in the list box at the top left (pdfLaTeX) and click the "play" butt...

Hi Tommy, welcome to the forum! First, yes, you need to install a TeX distribution, that can be either MiKTeX (Windows specific) or TeX Live via http://tug.org/texlive . I use TeX Live, since the maintainer base and support is significantly bigger. It is recommended to install a full version, that c...

How do I change Lagrande Orange to use only Unicode fonts? Topic is solved

Hi Anton, welcome to the forum! It seems you changed from the pdfLaTeX way (fontenc, specific LaTeX packages such as avant, pag font) to XeLaTeX (fontspec). That's a good choice when new fonts are needed. How about: \setmainfont{TeX Gyre Adventor} Adventor should be an Avantgarde clone, for trade ma...
