It only takes a minute to sign up. I recently found TeXmacs , and I find it excellent for quick note taking for me, typing LaTeX is much too slow and messy for that. One of the reasons why I'm hoping TeXmacs will be useful for this is that it seems to have pretty decent LaTeX export. But it's not perfect. This question is about how to clean up the LaTeX exported by TeXmacs to make it suitable for sending to collaborators and submitting to journals. This example is trivial, but with complex formulae all those extra spaces around the first bracket make things unreadable enough that I can't send the document like this to collaborators.
We will detail the process here. There are several situations where you might want to create a title in a custom format, rather than in the format natively supported by LaTeX classes. In such cases it is often better to create the title from scratch, and this section will show you how to accomplish this. Most document classes provide a simple interface to store details to be represented in the title and to typeset the actual title. You can store any information you want to be shown in the title, including formatting. The layout is defined by the documentclass in use. As the name suggests, it can be used to thank someone.
One of the main purposes of TeXmacs is to edit mathematical formulas. If the cursor is inside a formula i. Similarly, as will be detailed in this section, the bahaviour of the keyboard changes so as to allow for the rapid typing of mathematical symbols. Starting with version 1. When used appropriately, this allows you to write documents in which all formulas are at least correct from a syntactical point of view.
TeXmacs documents can be saved without loss of information in three formats: the native TeXmacs format, Xml and as a Scheme expression. TeXmacs documents can be converted in a wysiwyg what-you-see-is-what-you-get way to either Postscript or Pdf , which are used as the primary formats for printing documents. TeXmacs offers high quality converters to and from LaTeX.
