Re: Shrink text in a picture

Rely on packages like pgf/ti k Z or PSTricks for such sketches. Instead of scaling down the text you better scale up the graphical elements. From the descriptions at Wikibooks, it looked like pgf/ti k Z would serve my purposes. I read a tutorial on it. Thanks for the info. As soon as the problem is...

Re: Vertical spacing in equation

You can add vertical spacing after the \\, like this:... Thanks shad. I hadn't seen that option. I wonder why you use the array environment at all.

Here's what I came up with: \begin{picture}(0,0) % A (left) spring and mass. \newsavebox{\SandM} \savebox{\SandM}(28,10)[bl]{ \...

\include vs. \input Topic is solved

Hi, I have just learned LaTeX this weekend. I didn't see a forum for stupid newbie questions, so I'm posting here. Why can't I get \include working (but \input does)? I am practicing LaTeX by doing my math homework in it. I like to keep organized, so I am going to create a separate .tex file for eac...
