Re: LaTeX on Chromebook? Or should I buy a normal laptop? 21/04/2015 23:38, Stefan_K I got a netbook too, an Asus EEE pc, already with SSD at that time. Was nice, and worked with LaTeX. Now it's an additional network testing device for me.
Some people use laptops mainly for Internet, so a Chromebook may be sufficient and even better than a tablet since it got a real keyboard.

Sure, but I assume they use LaTeX. But there are possibilities, such as picture environment, PSTricks, or TikZ. Triangle arrow heads are not so special.
Also, how can I label the origin as O in LaTeX?
Put an $O$ there, as a node or text.

Thanks for the welcome.
Yes, I forgot to mention I'm a LateX newbie. Been using Linux for years and Unix before that but haven't had the need to use it that I remember. I may have used in back in college but I've lost a few brain cells since then.

Re: College Board - LaTeX? 21/04/2015 23:13, calculus_nerd Their figures may not be perfect, but they do construct other interesting figures with the same program. Take a look at the arrows that point to the electrodes in the galvanic cell below. The arrowheads are exactly the same as the ones used for the axes in the original post. Could they just be using a program like Phot... Frontmatter, Mainmatter, etc in Legrand Orange Book Template 21/04/2015 23:11, jworkerbee2 Re: Frontmatter, Mainmatter, Headers, etc, and the Book Design in Legrand Orange Book Template
I have been having some problems adapting this intriguing template. I must not understand some of structure.tex logic, especially around fancyhdr. Most attempts do not do what I want and changes often seem "fragile.&qu... Re: LaTeX on Chromebook? Or should I buy a normal laptop? 21/04/2015 22:03, Stefan_K Hi Datruck,
welcome to the forum!
Thank you for your additional information! It's useful, and a Chromebook can be an option for me as well for some purpose. Since you did not mention LaTeX, I assume you came here just because we talked about Chromebooks. How did you find this topic?

I realize my reply is a bit late as this post is over a month old. The original poster has likely already purchased a laptop. I wanted to make a quick replay and try to clear up some misconceptions about Chromebooks.
Contrary to what Stefan said you do have power over what software runs on your Chromebook. You ac... Re: College Board - LaTeX? 21/04/2015 21:33, Stefan_K Welcome to the forum!
It doesn't look perfect, so it's either not done with LaTeX or it's not done very well. For example, the function plot at the left is not smooth, and the base line of the origin doesn't match the base line of the numbers at the x tick marks.
The question is: would you like to imitate the College...
Re: book orange template TOC subsection text issue 21/04/2015 21:27, Stefan_K Welcome to the forum!
Generally, I would use the tocstyle package which calculates the widths automatically. So numbers and text would not overlap in any case. It uses several LaTeX runs to finally adjust.
However, the template uses the titletoc package. No problem, but you have to decide the widths. You correctly lo...
