12. mathslover Group Title

Great work @kymber :)

13. cap_n_crunch Group Title

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 Group Title

Thanks, mathslover. :D

15. cap_n_crunch Group Title

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. godgavemeyou Group Title

I like ur colors!

21. shruti Group Title

where do latex works?

22. kymber Group Title

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

23. godgavemeyou Group Title

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

24. kymber Group Title

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. godgavemeyou Group Title

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. shruti Group Title

does'nt i works on Other sites ? @Kymber

28. mathslover Group Title

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

29. mathslover Group Title

btw, can you name those "Other sites" ?

30. shruti Group Title

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 Group Title

What colours did I miss, care to share?

37. kymber Group Title

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

38. thomaster Group Title

39. kymber Group Title

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 Group Title

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

42. JA1 Group Title

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

43. JA1 Group Title

@kymber why do you write "$$\color{red}{\huge\tt{T}}" emphazizing on the "\tt{T}}"? 44. JA1 Group Title The double t and the double } 45. thomaster Group Title 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 Group Title Ah ok much less confusing thanks thom :) 47. kymber Group Title 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 Group Title

:')

49. thomaster Group Title

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 Group Title

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 Group Title

actualy it's 16,777,216 :P

52. ParthKohli Group Title

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

53. thomaster Group Title

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

Mind=BLOWN

55. JA1 Group Title

Thanks @kymber :)

57. dumbsearch2 Group Title

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