a macro question

\def\tmptmptmptmp{\lpxx} \def\lpxx{\lpx} \def\lpx{\tmptmptmptmp} The code above does this: (1) define a macro \tmptmptmptmp that expands to \lpxx ; (2) define another one, \lpxx , that expands to \lpx ; (3) define \lpx to expand to \tmptmptmptmp , which of course expands to \lpxx , which expands to...

index of abbreviations flushleft Topic is solved

It was supposed to indent the second one (you said that was what you wanted).

If this is for a "list of symbols," you might check out the nomencl package, which uses the makeindex program to update the nomenclature in a well-defined way that links back to the text.

Spell check does not work with \cite{}

This seems to happen for any command ending in "cite"; includes \cite , \nocite \footcite , \mycite , \overcite , and it happens for any word in the sentence. You can get around this problem by putting all your \cite commands on a line by themselves, with the previous line ending with [cmd...

TikZ + Beamer: Placing text immediately under images

There are many times when I'm making a beamer -based presentation and I want to include an image that is accompanied, right below it (either centered or left-aligned), by a caption denoting where I got the image. In in-line images, I can work around this with line breaks, but what I really want is s...

Accented letters such as 'ą' and 'ę' are converted

Sorry to reply to a very old post, but I failed to catch this post when it was new, and if someone else finds it....

The command for the diacritical mark you wanted above is \k{e} and similar; you'll need T1 encoding using the fontenc package.

  4. \usepackage{xcolor}
  5.  
  6. \begin{document}
  7. hello!
  8. \end{document}

Please be more specific.

Re: A problem with 'ą' and 'ę' letters

Is there any reason you don't want to use the standard commands that produce accents? For example, \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article} \usepackage{txfonts} % or any font you wish \begin{document} Za\.z\'o\l \'c g\c e\'sl\c a ja\'z\'n. \end{document} Those use 100% ASCII text, pretty much guarantee...

Re: sort references alphabetically

How about using alpha.bst? If that's not the right format, try running "latex makebst" and following the instructions---that will let you sort in a number of ways.
