## anonymous one year ago Someone mind teaching me how to latex?

1. Whitemonsterbunny17

Sure! First, do you know any of the basics?

2. anonymous

Nope!!

3. Whitemonsterbunny17

Alright, we shall start with the basics, then. :3 It is absolutely imperative that you always start with $$ and end with $$.

4. anonymous

$$(hi/) 5. anonymous I think I did it wrong.. 6. Whitemonsterbunny17 It's okay, we'll get into more so you can fix it. ^.^ 7. anonymous \(hi/) 8. anonymous Lol I''m terrible 9. Whitemonsterbunny17 The next thing to learn is how to choose the size. The sizes are: \scriptsize \tiny \small \normalsize \large \Large \LARGE \huge The size would be the first command. \(\Large\bf\color{red}{Hello}$$ ^

10. Whitemonsterbunny17

And I got your PM, I can't reply b/c you haven't fanned me, but okay, I need sleep too. I'll be online tomorrow, so just PM me when you wanna continue. :p

11. Whitemonsterbunny17

And for when you're back online, here's the list of the things we'll be going over: $$\huge\mathbb{\color{black}{INDEX:}}$$ $$\hspace{-80pt}\huge\mathbb{\color{red}{I}\color{gold}{N}\color{lime}{D}\color{cyan}{E}\color{blueviolet}{X}\color{purple}{:}}$$ $$\huge\color{red}{⍚}$$ $$\Large\mathbb{\color{red}{Basic~Command~Placement}}$$ $$\huge\color{red}{⍚}$$ $$\huge\color{gold}{⍚}$$ $$\Large\mathbb{\color{gold}{Sizes}}$$ $$\huge\color{gold}{⍚}$$ $$\huge\color{lime}{⍚}$$ $$\Large\mathbb{\color{lime}{Fonts}}$$ $$\huge\color{lime}{⍚}$$ $$\huge\color{cyan}{⍚}$$ $$\Large\mathbb{\color{cyan}{Colors}}$$ $$\huge\color{cyan}{⍚}$$ $$\huge\color{blueviolet}{⍚}$$ $$\Large\mathbb{\color{blueviolet}{Spacing}}$$ $$\huge\color{blueviolet}{⍚}$$ $$\huge\color{purple}{⍚}$$ $$\Large\mathbb{\color{purple}{Special~Characters}}$$ $$\huge\color{purple}{⍚}$$ $$\huge\color{orchid}{⍚}$$ $$\Large\mathbb{\color{orchid}{Other~Fun~Extras}}$$ $$\huge\color{orchid}{⍚}$$

"Special Characters" ?

What do you mean?

14. Whitemonsterbunny17

$$\huge\color{red}{◈}$$ $$\huge\bf\color{red}{Basic~Command~Placement}$$ $$\huge\color{red}{◈}$$ $$\cal\color{black}{Here~is~a~breakdown~of~the~following~code,~which~appears~as:}$$ $$\Large\bf\color{red}{Hello!}$$ $$\Large\bf\color{red}{Hello!}$$ The " \Large " in this code is the selected size command. Size commands always go first. V $$\Large\bf\color{red}{Hello!}$$ Next is the font command. For this specific command, the font is " \bf ". V $$\Large\bf\color{red}{Hello!}$$ After the font command, you can insert the color command. In this instance, I chose red by inserting the color word into the brackets, like so: " \color{red} " V $$\Large\bf\color{red}{Hello!}$$ After choosing your color, you can insert your text into the brackets. In this code, the text is " {Hello!} ", as seen towards the end of the command.

17. anonymous

[Hello!]

18. anonymous

{Hello!}

19. Whitemonsterbunny17

Yeah, the text goes in those brackets. Make sure you include the $$ at the beginning and the $$ at the end.

20. anonymous

Is this only available on mobile?

21. Whitemonsterbunny17

No, it works on any device as long as OpenStudy runs on it.

22. Whitemonsterbunny17

Try this code: $$\bf\color{lime}{Hello!}$$

23. anonymous

$$\bf\color{lime}{Hello!}$$

24. Whitemonsterbunny17

$$\bf\color{blueviolet}{Perfect!}$$

25. anonymous

It doesn't turn purple though..

26. Whitemonsterbunny17

Do you kinda understand how the basic placement works? Or does something still confuse you? I know, that's because I made mine purple. :p

27. anonymous

Nope, I got it.

28. Whitemonsterbunny17

Okay. Next, we'll move on to the fonts. $$\Large\bf\color{blueviolet}{~~~~~~~~Fonts:}$$  \bf  = $$\Large\bf\color{red}{Example}$$  \rm  = $$\Large\rm\color{orange}{Example}$$  \tt  = $$\Large\tt\color{gold}{Example}$$  \it  = $$\Large\it\color{lime}{Example}$$  \cal  = $$\Large\cal\color{cyan}{Example}$$  \frak  = $$\Large\frak\color{blue}{Example}$$  \scr  = $$\Large\scr\color{purple}{Example}$$  \mathbb  = $$\Large\mathbb{\color{blueviolet}{EXAMPLE}}$$ $$\normalsize\rm\color{red}{Note:~Mathbb~is~a~special~case,~instructions~are~below:}$$ $$\normalsize\rm\color{magenta}{A~bracket~must~be~placed~after~the~fontname~and~before~the~end~command.}$$ $$\normalsize\rm\color{magenta}{Example:}$$ $$\Large\mathbb{\color{blueviolet}{EXAMPLE}}$$ $$\normalsize\rm\color{magenta}{Also~note~that~mathbb~only~changes~capitalized~letters~and~numbers.}$$ $$\Large\mathbb{\color{blueviolet}{Other~Fun~Things~to~Do~With~Text:}}$$  \overline  = $$\Large\bf\color{red}{\overline{Example}}$$  \underline  = $$\Large\bf\color{orange}{\underline{Example}}$$  \overset  = $$\Large\bf\color{gold}{\overset{\bigstar~\bigstar~\bigstar}{Example}}$$  \underset  = $$\Large\bf\color{lime}{\underset{\bigstar~\bigstar~\bigstar}{Example}}$$  \sideset  = $$\Large\bf\color{cyan}{\sideset{_\bigstar^\heartsuit}{_\heartsuit^\bigstar}{Example}}$$ $$\normalsize\rm\color{red}{Note:~Right~click~the~\LaTeX~commands,~then~click~Show~Math~As}$$ $$\normalsize\rm\color{red}{~~~~to~see~how~each~works,~as~they~all~have~separate~instructions.}$$

That second part goes along with the "Other Fun Extras".. whoops. :p
