LaTeX Bold Writing in Latex

  1. Apr 16, 2017 #1
    Would you please explain
    #: number sign shortly ns
    1. How can I put a two-word phrase into bold type using number sign? I try to demonstrate it with using name of sign instead of sign itself.
    nsns I come nsns

    Above will appear as ## I come ## but I want it seem properly, abstract and all bold.
    I know this nsns I nsns nsns come nssn but this is not practical.

    Thank you.

    nsns\textrm{ I come }nsns ##\longrightarrow \textrm{ I come }##

    But in the above you put longrightarrow code into ##, but longrightarrow appears out of it. Would you explain this?

    Thank you.

    It isn't out of it, it starts right before the arrow and ends after \textrm{ }. Since there are no other mathematical symbols, only text, it might appear as outside.

    Long arrow does not work now. Would you explain how this happens and function of the double #?

    \longarrow ##\textrm{ I come }##[/QUOTE]

    Thank you.

    You can also write nsnsI\ comensns which gives ##I\ come##. The space remains when preceeded by a backslash but you still keep the italic (variable notation).
