Make sure you join the $$\LaTeX$$ practicing group! http://openstudy.com/study#/groups/latex%20practicing!%20%3A%29 Also, all the $$\LaTeX$$ I used in this tutorial is here https://gist.github.com/Kymber/ec72626d366e04687f93 if anyone wants to look at it.

12. mathslover

Great work @kymber :)

13. anonymous

Another good one is the yfonts package. A friend of mine used it in his thesis to emphasize the chapters. The syntax goes like this: \yinipar{<letter of your choice>} , unfortunately it doesn't work here.

14. kymber

Thanks, mathslover. :D

15. anonymous

You're most welcome. I think most people wouldn't use it for science but actually i love it for giving my scripts some edge :)

16. anonymous

I like ur colors!

where do latex works?

22. kymber

I'm certainly not your student, Snuggie. Not sure where you got that idea.

23. anonymous

$$\Huge \color{aqua}{\cal{LOL ~Kymber...}}$$

24. kymber

I'm pretty sure @ParthKohli was the one who showed me LaTeX, actually... and @shruti LaTeX works in questions and responses on OpenStudy and you can download programs to use it on your computer if you wanted. I don't know of any other sites that support it.

25. anonymous

I learned from snuggie ... And you i learned more fonts and colors from u .Snuggie taught me how to change colors and fonts and how to set it up

oh...i thought you were one of mine...well...ok...

27. anonymous

does'nt i works on Other sites ? @Kymber

28. mathslover

@shruti , that may be because , other sites may have not installed these packages on their sites.

29. mathslover

btw, can you name those "Other sites" ?

30. anonymous

okay thanks! @mathslover

You missed a few colors

Are you guys still curious about what you can do? If you would like you can go to: http://latex-project.org/guides/usrguide.tex It is a rather dry read but you can learn a lot of commands to use on this site!

This one is not so dry but it is more recent. I don't know if the team has kept up with the most recent $$\LaTeX$$ versions but if they have this will be helpful. this is one of the pages i refer to a lot. http://latex-project.org/guides/fntguide.pdf

$$\setlength{\unitlength}{0.75mm} \begin{picture}(60,40) \put(30,20){\vector(1,0){30}} \put(30,20){\vector(4,1){20}} \put(30,20){\vector(3,1){25}} \put(30,20){\vector(2,1){30}} \put(30,20){\vector(1,2){10}} \thicklines \put(30,20){\vector(-4,1){30}} \put(30,20){\vector(-1,4){5}} \thinlines \put(30,20){\vector(-1,-1){5}} \put(30,20){\vector(-1,-4){5}} \end{picture}$$

35. kymber

What colours did I miss, care to share?

37. kymber

Try ones that I missed. They're probably not included in my tutorial here because they don't work.

38. thomaster

39. kymber

The ones with names are easier to remember

Not if you understand how the Hexadecimal code works. If you understand the layout you can make any color you want with only swapping a number @kyber Names are for wimps when you've got millions of codes and all you have to do is find the sequencing. When you learn that you can create any color you want with only the typing of a couple of memorized number letter mixtures that all follow each other in a specific order that once you get it is dumbly easy.

41. JA1

$$\huge\color{Cyan}{16~MILLION~COLORS~YO~!!}$$

42. JA1

That's like..... a lot O_O

43. JA1

@kymber why do you write "$$\color{red}{\huge\tt{T}}" emphazizing on the "\tt{T}}"? 44. JA1 The double t and the double } 45. thomaster double t = \tt = a font double } is to close the color tag, though it's unnecessary as you can write it as \huge\tt\color{red}T 46. JA1 Ah ok much less confusing thanks thom :) 47. kymber You need to put your words in brackets if you want to write more. \(\huge\tt\color{red}Tomatoes$$ will give you $$\huge\tt\color{red}Tomatoes$$. So then you can do $$\color{red}{\huge\tt{Tomatoes}}$$ for $$\color{red}{\huge\tt{Tomatoes}}$$. As far as I know. Parth taught me that.

48. ParthKohli

:')

49. thomaster

Yea my explanatin only works when you use 1 character. Like in this code: $$\color{red}{\huge\tt{T}}\color{orange}{\huge\tt{r}}\color{gold}{\huge\tt{y}}$$ $$\color{forestgreen}{\huge\tt{t}}\color{teal}{\huge\tt{h}}\color{blue}{\huge\tt{i}}\color{blueviolet}{\huge\tt{s}}$$ You can reduce it to: $$\huge\tt\color{red}T\color{orange}r\color{gold}y~\color{forestgreen}t\color{teal}h\color{blue}i\color{blueviolet}s$$ $$\huge\tt\color{red}T\color{orange}r\color{gold}y~\color{forestgreen}t\color{teal}h\color{blue}i\color{blueviolet}s$$

50. ParthKohli

Math lesson 1: Do you know why there are 16 million possible color combinations? Answer: These colors are written in hexadecimal, where we use letters A-F and 0-9. Now A-F is like 6 letters and 0-9 is 10 different numbers. So there are 16 total characters in hex. Hey, now you have six letters in hex to make a color, like $$\rm \color{red}{FF0000}$$ or $$\color{#C00}{C00000}$$. So there are $$16×16×16×16×16×16≈16,000,000$$ colors.

51. thomaster

actualy it's 16,777,216 :P

52. ParthKohli

That's why I wrote $$\approx$$

53. thomaster

i know, but let's not further spoil the comments :P

Mind=BLOWN

55. JA1

Thanks @kymber :)

Wow. I didn't see this earlier. So just to be clear, I can use hex code that I use in CSS in LATEX?
