How do you reliably bold math

How do you bold math? I've been using \bm , but it doesn't work with \nicefrac (or any frac, I think), and now I find it also doesn't work with \sec , and there doesn't seem to be a workaround. I've read suggestions to use \boldsymbol , but it seems to just be another name for \bm . The command \mat...

Equations on the left Topic is solved

I have the option "fleqn", but when I use double dollar sign to make an equation, it's centered.

How can I get the double dollar sign to print the equation to the left, but indented maybe half an inch?

Re: \bm and \nicefrac don't work together

The only reasonable solutions seems to be \nicefrac{\bm 1}{\bm 4} If the top or bottom (numerator/denominator in mathspeak) has more than one character, I assume you will need yet another set of braces \nicefrac{\bm{numerator}}{\bm{denominator}} But then, usually you use regular \frac when you have ...

Re: How to update Tex distribution Topic is solved

Well, "solved" in the sense that I put \bm inside \nicefrac's arguments, yes. But I'd already figured that out. I'll mark this solved if you'd like.

Re: How to update Tex distribution Topic is solved

I tried running Update (Admin) again. It said there were no updates. Then I went to Package Manager (Admin) and installed l3packages . Then I went to Update (not admin). It said there were many packages to be updated. I checked off all of them, inlcuding l3packages . For good measure, I went back to...

How to update Tex distribution Topic is solved

According to this post, I need to update my Tex distribution. How do I do that? I have MikTex. I ran "Update (Admin)" program a few times. But that has not solved the problem. I also tried Package Manager (Admin), but was not sure what to do after starting it. I could not find anything nam...

Re: \bm and \nicefrac don't work together

I recently ran MikTex's "Update (Admin)" process to solve another problem. But I didn't do anything manually. And I might have made the wrong choices in that program. But that's all I did.

Re: \bm and \nicefrac don't work together

Ah, yes, that would be helpful information, huh?

I got 97 errors. The first one was "l3kernel too old", and l3keys2e.sty file is opened. I'm attaching the log file.

\bm and \nicefrac don't work together

I can't use \bm and \nicefrac together. Why not? How do I make bold, nice fractions (in math mode, but also out of math mode). I could not get xfrac to work at all. MWE: \documentclass[14pt,fleqn,reqno]{extarticle} \usepackage{amsfonts,amsmath,amssymb,amsthm} \usepackage{mathtools} % Better choice f...

Re: I requested the wrong release of LaTeX Topic is solved

I use MikTex and had to run the Update (Admin) process twice, but it worked.
