Latex reference

    Why is it so hard to find the latex instructions when I need them?

    I have to go to FAQ and do a search.

    But what's really weird is that the actual link to the post isn't even live. I have to select and copy it, then paste it into my address bar.

    There exists a dowloadable reference book called "The not so short introduction to LaTeX".
    You might try to find that one.
    If I've done right, here's a link to the pdf-file:
    http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/lshort/english/lshort.pdf

    NOTE:
    The symbol reference list starts on page 60.

    MmmOK...

    Uh, I didn't expect the whole 47 volume leather bound collectable set... (that requires Acrobat and, like 20 seconds of download time) - just the quick notes in the FAQ is all I would have expected for 99.9% of normal use.

    But Ok, thanks.

    Frankly, no. All I ever really need for most applications is this: https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=8997
    The list in the middle of chroot's post covers my needs.

    (What's weird is how I have to find it now.
    An FAQ search for 'latex' gives this reponse:
    "Use our latex system, please refer to this thread on how to use it: http: //physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=8997"
    But that URL is not a link; it's just text. I now have to select and copy that URL, then paste it into the address bar.)
