A group of high school students who plan to launch a satellite into space use Overleaf to collaborate

Posted on July 25, 2019 by Overleaf Feed

Overleaf was delighted to sponsored the blair3sat project with a free Overleaf Group Account. They wrote this little blog about their project and how they used Overleaf. :) blair3sat is a group of high school students which plans to launch a small satellite into space. Any STEM field requires its participants to write scholarly articles, which in our case are even more essential to secure funding for our new team. Thanks to the generous team at Overleaf, we can now easily script high-quality LaTeX papers collaboratively in real-time over the internet.

Syntax-aware navigation, keyboard macros, sleeping Emacs and interactive functions

Posted on July 1, 2019 by Content AND Presentation Feed

A few days ago I had an interesting Emacs-related problem. I wanted to record and use a keyboard macro which would find a certain TeX one-parameter macro (say, \todo) and comment it out. The tricky part was that it was not at all guaranteed that this macro would be on a line on its own, so “finding the string \todo, going to the beginning of the line and inserting a percent character” won’t work.

Automatic formatting of syntactic annotations in glossed examples with LaTeX

Posted on June 16, 2019 by Cipanglossia Feed

The preceding post explained how to automatically format grammatical labels in glossed examples with LaTeX. The same kind of code can be used to automatically format syntactic brackets and annotations, so I added this functionality to my experimental package now called igt-format.sty (https://bitbucket.org/tpellard/igt-format). Adding brackets and annotations for syntactic structure in a glossed examples poses two problems: brackets and annotations are italicized if the first line is in italics, which does not look nice; glosses get aligned with the brackets instead of the text.

Automatic formatting of interlinear glosses with LaTeX

Posted on June 13, 2019 by Cipanglossia Feed

One of the most tedious tasks when writing a linguistic article is the formatting of interlinear glossed examples. In LaTeX, several packages make it easy to align words, but the formatting of abbreviated grammatical labels still needs to be done by hand, wrapping each label within a \textsc{} command. Even with the leipzig package, one still has to add some code within the interlinear glosses. This also makes more difficult importing interlinear data from popular software such as Toolbox. I present below a rather […]

Defining custom TikZ fill patterns

Posted on June 9, 2019 by Content AND Presentation Feed

Some time ago I had a need to define my own filling pattern in TikZ. It turned out to be quite simple, although I had to learn a few things. While the manual (as usual) does a pretty good job at teaching that, I felt that the explanation was a bit too short in one place, and hence this blog post.

Ma politique de branches avec Git

Posted on June 2, 2019 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

En préparant mon intervention sur Git au Stage LaTeX de juin, je me suis dit qu'il pouvait être utile que je résume, succinctement, ma politiquement de branchement avec Git. Elle n'a rien de très original, mais je la trouve pratique, et je me la suis plus ou moins construite avec le temps, notamment à cause de mon travail sur (r)(e)ledmac. Principe numéro 1 : la branche master doit être utilisable à tout moment Contrairement à SVN où le trunk sert souvent de branche de développement, la facilité de (...) - Git

Converting BibTeX files to AMSrefs

Posted on May 20, 2019 by Content AND Presentation Feed

It’s been a long time since I’ve written anything TeX-related here. But I’m still working with LaTeX (though less often than I used to), and here is a problem I encountered a few days ago – and a solution. I received a file with BibTeX-encoded bibliography. Obviously, I wanted to convert it to AMSrefs. Being lazy, I started to search for an automated solution – and I was not disappointed at all! It turns out that AMSrefs itself has a feature I needed.
