One of the most useful features of LaTeX is its ability to handle cross-references. To use this, we first define a label at the section or equation, table, etc. When you run LaTeX on a document with cross-references, it often doesn't know which section the references actually refer to.
Top Symbols! Upside-down exclamation mark symbol. When you type up the code, replace all instances of this symbol with a space via the space bar on your keyboard.
Articles on specific topics, talks, etc. In addition pointer to documentation in other languages usually developed and maintained by user groups is given. To find documentation that is available elsewhere on the net, visit the links page. Also, there's a whole page dedicated to books on LaTeX and related topics.
Generating a table of contents can be done with a few simple commands. LaTeX will use the section headings to create the table of contents and there are commands to create a list of figures and a list of tables as well. I will give a small example code to create a table of contents first:.
Texmaker can't compile yours documents if the paths to the LaTeX related commands are wrong. To change a command, just click on the button at the end of the corresponding line and select the command in the file browser : texmaker will adapt automatically the syntax of the command. Additional parameter : will be replaced by the current file name without extension even in the "master" mode and!
You put the command right where you want the table of contents to go; LaTeX does the rest for you. It produces a heading, but it does not automatically start a new page. Let's say that in one place of your document, you want to write, "Aardvark nesting habits are well-documented in the literature. That is the citation part in the next.
Being able to automatically reference a figure within a LaTeX document is a very cool thing. The same technique works for referencing other objects within a LaTeX document, including tables and equations. Please read the comments for more details.
L a T e X typesetting is made by using special tags or commands that provide a handful of ways to format your document. Sometimes standard commands are not enough to fulfil some specific needs, in such cases new commands can be defined and this article explains how. Most of the L a T e X commands are simple words preceded by a special character.
