LaTeX is a typesetting program used to make documents. It's what you see when you see different fonts in books or math problems in math textbooks.
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
You can do all sorts of things, like \(\Huge\color{teal}{\LaTeX~is~fun!}\) with some simple coding. Would you like to learn?

I sure would!

Okay, so to start out, you need to know the basics. Everything you make must begin with `\(` and end with `\)`
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
you could also use `[` instead of `(` if you want.
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
So, try this. \(Hi\) from this code: `\(Hi\)`

  • anonymous
\(hi\)

I would!

okay, would you like to learn fonts, sizes, or colors next?

I can help teach :)

I'd kind of like to learn font right now. Or maybe color. Im not picky.
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
Well, I'd suggest you learn in the order of the code. So size next. Then font. Then color.
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
Amelia... -_-
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
Sorry Bri :P
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
Okay, well I guess she's right. We can learn sizes. That's really easy.
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
I'll list them!!
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
-_- stop it
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
Bri you can do it XD
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
(but I would suggest you do it they way I usually do)
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
* the
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
brb hehe
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
then I'll steal you spotlight XD
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
okay, there are many different sizes. There are \(\tiny tiny\), \(\Tiny Tiny\) \(\small small\), \(\normalsize normalsize, ~\large large, ~\Large Large, ~\LARGE LARGE, \huge huge,~\Huge Huge\)
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
to do that, you type `\(\tiny\)` or `\(\LARGE\)` etc... you put `\` in front of the command.
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
so like this, \(\large LaTeX~is~AWESOME!\) the code is `\(\large LaTeX~is~AWESOME!\)`
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
Now you try
BloomLocke367

\(\large LaTeX~is~AWESOME!\)
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
There you go! \(\Huge\color{lime}{\ddot\smile}\)
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
Now, with the list I made, the code is what is said. Does that make sense?
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
Are you ready for fonts?
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
you forgot scriptsize!
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
oops! XD I knew there was something I forgot. xp
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
\(\scriptsize scriptsize\)
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
lol XD and did you talk about how not to forget to change it to `\(\` instead of `\(`?
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
yessssss Amelia
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
scriptsize comes after Tiny btw
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
lol ok Bri :P
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
just checking ;)

BloomLocke367

you guys are going to make lag.
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
hahaha just messin with ya :P Okay, so Bri, continue teaching font
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
@casdawson are you ready for fonts?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Mhmmm
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
okay. So, just like with sizes, you must have `\` front of the font codes.
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
you will put \ in between everything until you get to color
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
There are many.. I may forget some, so if I do, you can post them Amelia. There are \(\sf sf, \tt tt, \scr scr, \mathbb mathbb, \bf bf, \frak frak\). I'm pretty sure there are more, so @horsegirl27 post them. I can't find Caleb's table
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
However, mathbb and scr only show a change of fonts in caps and mathbb works a little bit differently than the others.
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
I believe you only forgot cal
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
yes!!! thank you
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
\(\cal cal\)
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
So, \(\cal LaTeX~rocks!\) comes from `\(\cal LaTeX~rocks!\)`
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
now you try, pick a font and say something.
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
if you make a mistake, we can help you fix it :)
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
yes, don't worry.

BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
Are you ready for colors?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Heck Yeah!
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
Okay, there is a big list of predefined colors (meaning you can just put pink or yellow in the command and the color will show) or you can use html color codes (you can look those up online).
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
Colors are way more complicated. There are some where you can say the name, but to be more specific, some colors have codes
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
And it's also more complicated writing the code for using color.
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
Okay, color is a little different than font or size.
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
and Amelia, I'm getting there -_-
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
to use colors, the code is \color{ }{ }. in the first set of brackets, you put the color name (or html code) and in the second set of brackets, you put what you want to say using that color.
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
\(\color{red}{I~love~LaTeX}\) is from `\(\color{red}{I~love~LaTeX}\)`
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
Now you try, I'm going to look for the list of predefined colors.
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
So your code is now: `\(\size\font\color{colorhere}{texthere}\)`
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
We can get to combining them later -_-
anonymous

\(\large \cal \color {red}{Hullo!~Allons-y!}\)
