Elbow Tickets!

7:00 – 8:00 Research

  • Accurat is a global, data-driven research, design, and innovation firm with offices in Milan and New York.
  • Formatting paper for Phys Rev E. Looks like it’s gotta be LaTex, or more specifically, RevTex. My entry about formats
    • Downloaded RevTex
    • How to get Google Docs to LaTex
    • Introduction to LaTex
    • Installing TexX slooooow…TexLive
    • That literally took hours. Don’t install the normal ‘big!’ default install?
    • Installing pandoc
    • Tried to just export a PDF, but that choked. reading the manual at C:\texlive\2016\tlpkg\texworks\texworks-help\TeXworks-manual\en
    • Compiled the converted doc! Not that I actually know what all this stuff does yet… LatexGP
    • And then I thought, ‘gee, this is more like coding – I wonder if there is a plugin for IntelliJ?’. Yest, but this page ->BEST DEVELOPMENT SETUP FOR LATEX – says to use texStudio. downloading to try. This seems to be very nice. Not sure if it will work without a LaTexInstall, but I’ll tray that on my home box. It would be a much faster install if it did. And it’s been updated very recently – Jan 2017
      • Aaaand the answer is no, it needs an install. Trying MikTex this time. Well that’s a LOT faster!
