hi from Sarasota, Florida

I have completed R&D on my second book, and am now moving into book design. Unfortunately, I've been away from book design long enough to have forgotten everything that I learned the first time around. :( On the positive side, I have the marked-up text from book #1, which can be used as a templa...

Re: hi from Sarasota, Florida

My book has been published. Thanks to everyone who provided technical assistance and moral support. The book's proofreaders never mentioned the book design or typesetting, which means that LaTeX did its job - the reader can focus on the message rather than the medium by which it is delivered. The le...

Re: Proceedings Book with Articles

The memoir class has the configuration options required to produce a high-quality book (in my experience). The learning curve was substantial, but I'm pleased with the typesetting for my first book, to be published soon. There may be issues associated with aggregating LaTeX-formatted content provide...

Re: What are your favorite LaTeX resources?

My mistake. The publisher's website design is confusing - I thought that the 'Print + eBook' option is disabled (shown in light gray). It's not. "Quick solutions for common tasks" sounds OK in English, but there might be something even better. Your proposal is better than "Quick solut...

Re: What are your favorite LaTeX resources?

Stefan: I am interested in your book (the LaTeX Cookbook). My next project may involve fairly complex computer graphics, and I wonder whether I can use LaTeX as a rendering engine rather than develop my own custom graphics software on MacOS. I haven't investigated this yet. On the publisher's websit...

Re: suspend interword kerning?

I'm already using XeTeX, and it is doing a good job handling utf-8 characters that I read from a file and display verbatim. If I can master the art of inline verbatim display, the problem might be solved.

Re: suspend interword kerning?

'Beta' and 'element-of' are Unicode chars that I use in verbatim listings input from files elsewhere in the text. \beta and \in might render the glyphs correctly, but I don't want to fight this battle if I can avoid it. My best hope was to enclose the sets inside 'in-line' verbatim commands such as ...

suspend interword kerning?

Problem: how to turn off inter-word kerning so the elements of a set display nicely. Here is the MWE, showing both the problem and my ungainly hack (loses right-justification of the text). Does anyone know the correct way to do this? \documentclass[11pt]{memoir} \usepackage{graphics} \usepackage{fon...

Re: apply arbitrary command to index term? Topic is solved

In my case:

  1. \index{α@\TBFN{α}}
  2. \index{β@\TBFN{β}}


Here is the output on the Index page:
α, 35
β, 6

Thanks for the tip! One less thing to forget! :D
