AGU template: First name appearing before last name for a subset of references

Solved. I determined that the author field for two individuals was slightly different in the entries for several papers. Bibtex thought there were several people named, for example T Smith. So the bibliography style file dictated that these papers show up in the text as T Smith et al. 2020. Lesson l...

AGU template: First name appearing before last name for a subset of references

I'm using the American Geophysical Union template .tex file on Overleaf. After compiling I'm seeing a subset of my in text references are appearing like (J. W. Smith et al., 2012) rather than expected (Smith et al., 2012). The agutexSI2019.cls class file calls \bibliographystyle{apacite} . I install...

Re: New Command for bold Text on colored Background

In order to help you, we need more information. What is going to happen, if the text is longer than one line, or longer than one paragraph. Can you supply those info in form of a compilable minimal example ? An example \documentclass{minimal} \usepackage{color,comment} \begin{document} \def\comment...

New Command for bold Text on colored Background

I'm looking to define a command that will facilitate placement of bold text in a yellow background. Here is a start without the bold, that also fails to wrap. I've tried a number of options without much success.
  1. \def\comment{\colorbox{yellow}}{}

Suggestions please. Thanks.

Re: Collaboration with Colleagues who don't use LaTeX

John,
I did not know of this tool. Looks interesting. I will examine closer this weekend or after the current proposal is submitted in a couple weeks. Thanks.

Re: Collaboration with Colleagues who don't use LaTeX

Thanks for the replies. Sounds like both of your options involve collaborations whereby each writer is contributing to specific sections of the paper or proposal. Incorporating text in this way is not difficult. But once I place everything into a .tex file and produce a PDF a few days out from due d...
