curly braces in text mode

When I try to use \{ and \} to create curly braces outside of math mode, it works and always has. However if I load the mtpro2 package in my preamble, it then fails, complaining about a miss $ insserted. What is the right to way get curly braces outside of math mode that won't break by loading the m...

Re: wrapping text including sectioning around image.

I tried using wrapfig instead of picins but it seems that if there is not existing \par content in a chapter before you invoke wrapfig, it reserves the space and text float around it but it doesn't load images or captions (pdflatex compiler)

wrapping text including sectioning around image.

Wrapping text around images including sectioning What I want is image with text inclusing section titles wrapped around it. Using parpic it almost works but is incorrect.

lowering a character in a section heading. Topic is solved

TeXLive 2013 as distributed from TUG running in Fedora 18 x86_64. \newcommand{\nix}{\textsc{Un\raisebox{-0.3\height}{*}x}} works in paragraph mode, it puts the * at the correct height relative to the small caps N and X (at least with the font I am using). However if I then use the \nix{} command in ...

Re: Start Chapters on odd Pages in one-sided Document Topic is solved

My hack is broken if page numbering is not arabic. But I can fix that.

Re: Start Chapters on odd Pages in one-sided Document Topic is solved

OK. This is what I want to do after each chapter command, hopefully I can easily redefine the chapter macro to do it. \newcommand{\mutilatepages}{% \ifodd\thepage% \else% \addtocounter{page}{1}% \fi% } Since chapters always start on a new page if that is run directly after \chapter{foo} using \thepa...

Re: Start Chapters on odd Pages in one-sided Document Topic is solved

Another option might be to increment the page number by 1 if a chapter is otherwise starting on an even numbered page. That would mean sometimes the PDF page numbering skips a page but I don't think that is so bad, that may be more tolerable than making a user scroll through blank pages.

Re: Correct »`« in verbatim Environment with custom Font Topic is solved

Stumbled upon the solution while reading "The LaTeX Companion" (2nd edition) looking for something else. The solution is to use the upquote package (after declaring the mono spaced font package).

Start Chapters on odd Pages in one-sided Document Topic is solved

Hello, I'm using the standard book class. One version of the book will be printed two-sided, but there will also be a PDF version that does nice things like use the hyperref package and has color diagrams etc. \newif\ifprintdoc \newif\ifcolor %\printdoctrue \ifprintdoc \documentclass[12pt,letterpape...
