## anonymous 3 years ago Teaching Lacey to LaTex :P @Jamierox4ev3r

• This Question is Open
1. Jamierox4ev3r

okay so we can start with the basics. just to make the command $$\LaTeX$$, type this: $$\LaTeX$$

2. anonymous

$$\LaTeX$$

3. Jamierox4ev3r

yeah so that the basic command. $$\to~get~words~to~look~like~this...$$ $$hi$$ and from there you can add colors, different fonts...etc.

4. anonymous

Anyone else wanna try to teach me? Ima slow learner!

5. Jamierox4ev3r

and for spaces, just use ~ $$Hello~there!$$

6. anonymous

$$\Large\color{Blue} {Lacey} Haaha did I do anything.... 7. anonymous \(\Large\color{Blue} {Lacey}$$

8. Jamierox4ev3r

oh just add \) at the end of your thing... and take out the space in between blue and lacey.... then it will work! $$\Large\color{blue}{Lacey}$$

9. anonymous

$$\Large\color{blue}{Lacey}$$

10. Jamierox4ev3r

lol nice :D now that you know the basics, try reading thomaster's tutorial again its above your post :)

11. Jamierox4ev3r

lol this post got me up to a 77 SS $$\Huge\color{turquoise}{\mathbb{Y}\mathbb{A}\mathbb{Y}\mathbb{!}}$$ :D

12. anonymous

$$\Large\color\bigstar{Red}{Lacey~Sucks~At~LaTeX}$$

13. anonymous

Did I do anything?

14. e.mccormick

$$\scr \Huge \color{red}{H\hspace{-16pt}E\hspace{-8pt}Y\hspace{-6pt}L\hspace{-10pt}A\hspace{-9pt}C\hspace{-10pt}E\hspace{-7pt}Y}$$ It just takes a little practice. And, you don't and to go overboard with it. Here in $$\LaTeX$$ land I get a little silly with it. Out in most posts I do not. Just the $$\ddot\smile$$ and math stuff.

15. e.mccormick

You can right click mine and view the TeX code to see how I got the red in there. $$\color{<color name/#value>}{thing to be colored}$$

16. Jamierox4ev3r

lol to have a command: just make sure there is a backslash $$\color{hotpink}{Lacey}$$ just demonstating how you would use the little formula that e.mc provided up there

17. e.mccormick

$$\color{hotpink}{Lacey}$$ $$\leftarrow$$ Hot pink? Hehe. Some color names are funny.

18. Jamierox4ev3r

@KhiZ here may be a good place to start, but you can also go to @thomaster 's legendary tutorial up above this post

19. Jamierox4ev3r

good... now just add the parentheses $$\ddot\smile$$

20. Jamierox4ev3r

Type this $$\rightarrow$$ $$\ddot\smile$$

34. Jamierox4ev3r

A lot of the codes actually I got from this tutorial: http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/51fbcbade4b0cc46c14a461d and that is largely how I learned. As you can see, a lot of things can be done with $$\LaTeX$$

35. anonymous

$$Luigi$$

36. Luigi0210

$\color{red}{Lacey}$

37. anonymous

$\color{blue}{Luigi}$

38. Luigi0210

$\Huge \mathbb{ \color{#00FCCC}{Lacey}}$

40. anonymous

$\Huge \mathbb{ \color{#00FCCC}{Luigi}}$

41. Luigi0210

These are all the different sizes: tiny, scriptsize, small, normalsize, large, Large, LARGE, huge, Huge

49. anonymous

$\scr \Huge \color{blue}{I~Know}$

50. Luigi0210

If you're trying to get them to be all the same font, they all have to be capitalized. Like: \scr \Huge \color{blue}{I~KNOW}

51. anonymous

Maybe I don't want them all the same font lol jk Trying to cover up meh mistake. \scr \Huge \color{blue}{I~KNOW}

52. Luigi0210

$\LARGE \mathbb{\color{#D1FF00}{YOU}~\color{#FF1700}{KNOW}~\color{#00FF5C}{I}~\color{#A1FF00}{LOVE}~\color{#BA00FF}{YOU}~\color{#FF008A}{LACEY}}~~\color{springgreen}{ ;)}$

55. e.mccormick

\{LUI}} $$\leftarrow$$Oops! Extra \ there!

56. anonymous

Thx @e.mccormick

57. anonymous

I need extra help with this LaTex!

58. e.mccormick

With what?

59. anonymous

With $$LaTeX$$

60. e.mccormick

Just in general or with something specific?

61. anonymous

More specific :)

62. e.mccormick

Well, then what?

63. anonymous

Okay, You confused me.

64. e.mccormick

Well, you said you needed extra help with $$\LaTeX$$. I asked with what part and you replied $$\LaTeX$$, which is the whole and not a part, so I asked if you meant all of $$\LaTeX$$ or just some specific part of $$\LaTeX$$. You replied a specific part, so I asked which part and you said that question confused you... Obviously something in the conversation has gone sideways.

65. anonymous

Colors, font....

66. anonymous

Haha and Obviously!

67. e.mccormick

$$\color{<color name or #value>}{<thing to be collored}$$ The < > are things you would type in. The rest are all required, even the $$ and { and so on. \(\color{red}{Hi!}$$ makes: $$\color{red}{Hi!}$$ Text can be done a few ways. $$\text{Tada! This is text}$$ is one way and it makes: $$\text{Tada! This is text}$$ Now, if I put the \text{Tada! This is text} inside the text, it would be like this: $$\color{red}{\text{Tada! This is text}}$$ and make: $$\color{red}{\text{Tada! This is text}}$$

68. e.mccormick

Oh, and you can right click any bit someone makes and go to the Show math As > TeX Commands and see what was used to get it!
