Re: pstricks-add \psComment: please help with syntax

Well, never mind. I sent e-mail to pstricks mailing list and got a reply from Herbert Voss. Incidentally, that was a question about *syntax*, not like "something not working as it should", and posting the contents of the whole tex file for the sake of that is rather meaningless.

pstricks-add \psComment: please help with syntax

Hello, finally decided to learn the features of pstricks-add. Got a problem with \psComment. In particular, with the very last option, [line macro]. As I understand, by default it uses \ncline. So I tried to change it to ncarc, by putting [\ncarc] at the very end, but it gave me the syntax error, &q...

Auctex vs "the rest"

Due to some circumstances I have to run miktex and emacs/auctex (which I always used as an editor) from flash, and emacs is a bit sluggish. I've spent some time looking at some other editors. After quickly going through few of them (all for Windows XP) I spent some time looking closer at Led and Win...

Running portable MikTeX. Looks OK.

Hello, for those interested in portable MikTeX. I've installed it on USB flash and run from there. Works just fine. I really didn't like TeXWorks latex editor which comes with it, so I've installed emacs+auctex on the same flash drive. I did some searches on Web and found the script to let emacs kno...

Converting from PS to PDF.

Hello, I still have an old MikTeX distribution (pre-pdfTeX), and my normal workflow is to convert tex to dvi to ps, which I print, but sometime I need to generate pdf, so I simply convert ps to pdf. Since I use lots of pstricks (so I have an embedded postscript inside dvi), that's the most simplest ...

Re: .pdf to .tex

Answer yourself the question if it is possible to separate a cake to its ingredients. The same is true for PDF files. Best regards Thorsten¹ Not exactly true. You *can* convert .pdf back to .doc format. There are some free conversion tools available. Yes, the original question is "pdf to tex&q...

Re: I need urgent help

What do you mean? I didn't understand, or better, I don't know the meaning of pdfLatex, etc. What button must I use for compilation? Well, you should revisit the MikTeX site and learn about pdfLaTeX which is being used by the latest releases of MikTeX. pdfLaTeX replaces LaTeX2e. By default it gener...

Re: Special math symbols

Hi there, I need to use the \ointctrclockwise from "txfonts", so I include txfonts.sty, but then it tells me to install "omltxmi.fd", but where is it placed and how to install? Is there a reason you don't want to \usepackage{txfonfts} ? If you're afraid of some potential conflic...

Re: AMS and \oint

thank you guys for the inspiration! The possibilities with LaTeX and its relatives are just amazing! I love it ;) Since I got a little experience with pstricks, I'm going to experiment a little bit. Happy new year Regards Fab Good luck. Make sure the width of the resulting symbol is the 'wider one'...

Re: AMS and \oint

Yes, I was thinking among the same lines. If those tables do not meet the requirements, just typeset your favorite multiple integrals and overlay them with the curve of your liking. Except for the ellipse (or whatever curve) I would have used pstricks. Actually recently I did something like that (an...
