Assign Statements:
Press "esc i =" to insert an assign statement.
Type the first part (variable) then press right arrow and type it's value.
Then press enter to execute it.
Examples of assign statements are:
- theorem-env-nr 3 (used before inserting a Question enunciation to change it's number to 4)
- section-nr 2 (makes the next inserted section start with number 1 which is one less than the assigned value)
- subsection-nr 2 (makes the next inserted subsection start with number 1 which is one less than the assigned value)
- subsubsection-nr 2 (makes the next inserted subsubsection start with number 1 which is one less than the assigned value)
General principles:
- $ to switch in or out of maths mode (to insert a maths equation)
- tab to cycle through various options after pressing a letter (sometimes have to be in math mode first)
- To view keyboard shortcuts in math mode, click on the category in the menu toolbar, and hover the mouse over the symbol of interest
In Math Mode, the following are some of the options on the menu that are available:
- Insert a binary relation, contains the "in" symbol example: an integer b in R
- Blackboard bold characters, contains the symbols such as R for reals, Z for integers etc
- Insert a miscellaneous symbol, contains the "there exists" symbol, example: there exists an integer k. Shortcut: shift-e tab tab
- Insert a negation, contains the "there does not exist" symbol, example: there does not exist an integer k. Shortcut: > tab /
- Insert a miscellaneous symbol, contains the "forall" symbol, example: for all integers k. Shortcut: shift-a tab tab
On the menu it is possible to insert a section, subsection, subsubsection.
Title & author information at top of document:
At the top of the document I inserted a title. When I click on the title text then more menu items
appear in the toolbar allowing me to add additional information lines into the title area. For
example clicking on "+" to the right of "Title" in the toolbar, allows me to add lines for a
date, author fullname. If I first want to add an author below the title I can just press Enter
on the title text line and a line will appear "BY" and I can type my fullname to the right.
By clicking the "+" in the toolbar to the right of Author gives additional information I can add
about the author such as Email, Homepage.
