Indenting a block of text in LaTeX « timmurphy.org

To indent a block of text, you can use the \addtolength{length_variable}{length} command. For this task, we need to add to the \leftskip value for the block of text.

For example, to indent a block of text by 5mm we would do the following:

{\addtolength{\leftskip}{5mm}

TeXShop

About TeXShop:TeXShop is a TeX previewer for Mac OS X, written in Cocoa. Since pdf is a native file format on OS X, TeXShop uses “pdftex” and “pdflatex” rather than “tex” and “latex” to typeset in its default configuration; these programs in the standard TeX Live distribution of TeX produce pdf output instead of dvi output.TeXShop uses TeX Live, a standard distribution of Tex programs maintained by the TeX Users Group TUG for Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, and various other Unix machines. The distribution includes tex, latex, dvips, tex fonts, cyrillic fonts, and virtually all other programs and supporting files commonly used in the TeX world. The most recent version of this distribution is maintained for the Mac by the MacTeX TeXnical Working Group of the TeX Users Group and available under the “Obtaining” tab.T

miktex – Add templates to TeXworks – TeX – LaTeX Stack Exchange

2down votefavoriteUsing TeXworks 0.4.3 r.857 MiKTeX 2.9 on Windows 7 I am trying to add an arbitrary folder containing a template so that it can be seen from TeXworks’s New from Template… option. I can’t figure out how to inform TeXworks as to where it should look.I understand I can add templates next to the built in ones that appear under C:\Users\\AppData\Local\MiKTeX\2.9\TeXworks.4\templates. There are multiple files that go with this template, including a .sty class that I would like to keep in one place accessible to the user probably through a SVN repo, so I don’t like the idea of putting the templates in that hidden directory. I can tell MiKTeX to use an arbitrary root for packages, and would like to do the same for TeXworks and templates.

Detexify LaTeX handwritten symbol recognition

Anyone who works with LaTeX knows how time-consuming it can be to find a symbol insymbols-a4.pdf that you just can’t memorize. Detexify is an attempt to simplify this search.

How do I use it?

Just draw the symbol you are looking for into the square area above and look what happens!
