Help with editing

  1. Oct 28, 2011 #1
    Is there any document giving help with editing on the Physics Forum sites. Presumably Latex editing is available using [TEX] and [/TEX]?

    We are actually in the process of developing an extensive latex guide.

    Such a document would be really helpful

    In the meantime you can see the LaTeX source for any equation by clicking on it in a certain way. Under Mac OS with a one-button mouse, I control-click, then choose "Show Source" from the resulting popup menu. I don't know how this works under Windows with a "normal" mouse.

    For windows, you can right click on the equations and select "Show Source" and you will get a window popped up showing the code for the equation. :smile:

    As of now check https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=386951 [Broken]. Note there is a nasty mistake at the very beginning of the pdf file - tex tags should be always closed with [/tеx].

    The new LaTeX guide has been posted. It's a sticky in the feedback forum. Link.
