Is there a good software for browsing BibTeX databases? I have a .bib file with roughly 100 entries and it is becoming harder and harder to look up papers to cite. What I would like is something with a graphical interface that lists the entries in a more readable form. (I prefer open source softw...
Using Jabref and Libreoffice. I have a source that includes spaces and the word 'and' in a single author's name. Jabref parses this according to the usual rules - spaces separate first and last names, 'and' separating multiple authors. I have wrapped the name in an extra set of braces like so:
Some "helpful" person seems to be engaging in some sort of campaign to vote systematically but indiscriminately on questions I have asked or answered in the past. Is there any way that can be stopped (beyond waiting for the system to identify the abuse and roll it back)?
You are right, Optima is even more difficult to combine than any odd sans-serif ;) It looks like a serif but without the serifs. Amazingly, Iwona has just the same characteristics. If you compare tug.dk/FontCatalogue/iwona and tug.dk/FontCatalogue/optima, the two are really close.
@JosephWright Frank was looking at last few gnats entry on his list, ltnews21 could probably do with a proof read. I'm not sure if we are going to make a private test for a few days like we used to or if we will rely on the tl2014 pretesters
@DavidCarlisle Oh you're right of course. I was thinking of MathJax.
I didn't even know there was a browser that supported MathML at all. When I was still using Firefox, I visited MathML test pages every now and then and it always looked like a bomb went off in a letter case.
@Christian firefox has pretty full support for presentation mathml2, with some mathml3 features It doesn't support content mathml without an addon. test pages may have been wrong (wouldn't be the first time:-)
@Christian we'll get there in the end, but it's a long slog. For a while at the beginning of 2013 every common browser had (or could have) a native implementation (IE required mathplayer but that's native code) but then google pulled mathml from blink, opera adopted blink and microsoft broke mathplayer. grrrr
@Christian I've only used mathml not pngs since around 2000:-)
@hugovdberg yes I lived in Manchester for over 20 years before moving here, where you never really looked at a bus or train timetable for local travel, one just always turned up, it was a bit of a shock when I moved here:-)
@DavidCarlisle sounds nice, I must admit I love to visit my parents. They live at the edge of a small village, and the pavement just stops at their front door, from there on it's just a dusty track into the woods :) really nice and quiet out there
@DavidCarlisle they're trying to make more trains depart from our station as well, problem is there are too many level crossings at the moment which then would be practically closed all the time :P so there were some complaints after a trial two years ago
but they've been very busy reducing the number of level crossings so there will be new trial soon I think :)
@Johannes_B I've been terribly busy myself too :) although last weekend I really had nothing I needed to do for the first time in a month or three, so I spent it very well, in the sun with some nice cold beer ;-)
