Posted on April 11, 2017 by Blog on Latex Matters Feed

Une liste des abréviations des champs bibliographique

Posted on April 11, 2017 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

Dans une précédente contribution, j'expliquais comment obtenir une liste des abréviations de collection. Ceci ne permettait cependant pas de gérer une liste mélangeant les abréviations de plusieurs champs, par exemple les abréviations de collection et les abréviation des titres de revue. Suite à la demande d'Hélène Wiener, j'ai conçu le package biblatex-shortfields qui permet de gérer de tels cas. Le problème Le mécanisme de \printbiblist ne gère pas nativement la fusion de plusieurs types d'abréviations, (...) - BibLaTeX

LaTeX et correction d'orthographe : une astuce

Posted on April 9, 2017 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

On m'a demandé récemment de relire un travail conséquent rédigé en LaTeX pour, je cite, « pour en éliminer les fautes d'orthographe et de langue ». L'orthographe n'étant pas mon fort, j'utilise un correcteur externe, dont le nom signifie « antipoison ». Le problème avec LaTeX est que, du fait notamment de la surabondance de commandes d'abréviation, l'analyse du correcteur échoue régulièrement, car le correcteur n'est pas capable de traduire automatiquement les abréviations. J'ai donc décidé de faire la (...) - LaTeX

Posted on April 1, 2017 by Content AND Presentation Feed

I use AUCTeX pretty heavily; in fact, it was one of the first things I ever used in Emacs, way before I learned any Elisp or did any serious (or less serious) programming. Some time ago I noticed that sometimes (and I’m not sure what triggers this, though I have some suspicions) the word Compiling will stay in the modeline forever. It bugged me a bit, so I asked about it on the mailing list, and Oleh Krehel (of Ivy and Lispy fame) shared this simple solution: (setq compilation-in-progress nil). It’s not really a clean solution, but it works.
