    Well, here we only have a limited version of latex. The full version is not usable here as the code team didn't see it necessary. It very much is but the didn't feel that way. It is much easer to just use the draw tool. On the full latex you can make lines, graph, etc with only limited codes.

    @SnuggieLad Still, this can be done. I've seen other users do it.

    Otherwise, you can use things like dashes and underscores and size them up to overlap them.

    Similar things like this can be done, even with the current version. http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/51d5f910e4b036b89af6ef69

    Its extensively painstaking to do it that way. I can make a chessboard if i wanted to.

    (I had that saved to file) See, we can do plenty with latex but the work may be more than its worth.

    True^ although I agree it is not really worth the effort for open study, but I am interested in putting such a diagram in a document I am writing up. Is there a website that could help me with that?

    it looks like TeXStudio is very similar to TeXShop, which is what i use

    This code is more like what you should use, i have even automated it for you. ``` \documentclass{article} \usepackage[pdftex,active,tightpage]{preview} \setlength\PreviewBorder{1mm} \usepackage{tkz-fct} \newcommand % new commands % parameters % \p \newcommand \p \x { 1 } % x parameter \p \y { 2 } % y parameter \p \z { \x+\y } % x+y \p \w { .6 } % over-hang parameter \p \hx { .5 } % height of middle line \p \hy { 1 } % height of top line \begin{document} % unk \centering \begin{preview} \begin{tikzpicture} \draw (\z+\w,\hy) node[above]{$\overbrace{\hspace{3em}}$} ; % overbrace \draw (\y,\hy) --(\z+\w,\hy) % top line (\x,\hx)--(\z+\w,\hx) ; % middle line \draw (0,0)--(\x,0) node[below]{$x$} --(\y,0) node[below]{$y$} --(\z,0) node[below]{$x+y$} --(\z+\w,0) ; % bottom line \foreach \n in {0,\hx,\hy} \draw[dotted] (\z+\w,\n)--(\z+2*\w,\n) ; % dotted extension \foreach \n in {\x,\y,\z} \draw (\n,.1)--(\n,-.1) ; % vertical markers \end{tikzpicture} \end{preview} \end{document} ```
