## zepdrix Group Title LaTeX Colors in Open Study one year ago one year ago

1. zepdrix

I was messing around with the different basic colors from a chart I found on wikipedia and I noticed that only some of them actually work in Open Study. So I thought I'd make a chart of the colors that seem to be working, at least for me. $\large \begin{matrix}\color{aquamarine}{aquamarine} & \color{blue}{blue} & \color{black}{black} \\ \color{brown}{brown} & \color{cadetblue}{cadetblue} & \color{cornflowerblue}{cornflowerblue} \\ \color{darkorchid}{darkorchid} & \color{forestgreen}{forestgreen} & \color{fuchsia}{fuchsia} \\ \color{gray}{gray} & \color{green}{green} & \color{greenyellow}{greenyellow} \\ \color{limegreen}{limegreen} & \color{magenta}{magenta} & \color{maroon}{maroon} \\ \color{orange}{orange} & \color{orangered}{orangered} & \color{orchid}{orchid} \\ \color{purple}{purple} & \color{red}{red} & \color{royalblue}{royalblue} \\ \color{seagreen}{seagreen} & \color{skyblue}{skyblue} & \color{springgreen}{springgreen} \\ \color{thistle}{thistle} & \color{turquoise}{turquoise} & \color{violet}{violet} \\ \ \color{blueviolet}{blueviolet} & \color{cyan}{cyan} & \color{goldenrod}{goldenrod} \\ \ \color{lavender}{lavender} & \color{midnightblue}{midnightblue} & \color{plum}{plum} \\ \ \color{\tan}{\tan} & \color{violetred}{violetred} & \color{white}{white} \\ \color{yellow}{yellow} & \color{yellowgreen}{yellowgreen} & \color{salmon}{salmon} & \end{matrix}$ If there is already a thread on this, then I apologize. I didn't feel like digging through all of the closed threads though. :) lol

Example how to use color in the Equation tool: \color{blue}{x^2+y^2=4} The way it will look formatted: $\color{blue}{x^2+y^2=4}$ If you forget to put the \ in front of color, that's fine. The equation tool allows for that.

I've gotten kind of used to avoiding using the buttons (except for matrices). So if you're familiar with typing the fraction notation, it's very similar. Hah :D yah i guess XD

6. zepdrix

frac{}{} color{}{}

I'm going off to create a pretty reply to somebody's post. Thx for the LaTeX tips

@zepdrix: You can also use hex colors!$\color{#ff0000}{\text{\color{#ff0000}{}}}$$\color{#96cdcd}{\text{\color{#96cdcd}{}}}$So, you can use ALL the colors possible on OpenStudy.

Oooo very fun :)

$\textbf{TIPS}$Use the darker shades. $$\color{#C00}{\text{#C00}}$$ is much more comfortable than $$\color{red}{\rm red}$$. Avoid using colors when you can -- \textbf, \textit and \underline are warmly welcome =)

How do you write things in those little comment boxes like that?

12. ParthKohli

 write between these ticks. 

13. zepdrix

Oooo fun :O Grrr now how'd you change it green in the box? D::: Man I got a lot to learn T.T
