Hello everyone,

When citing references using [style=apa,hyperref=true]biblatex and \parencite, how can I hyperlink both author and year not only year?

2:42 PM
  @egreg, @DavidCarlisle -- there's a question in a comment to this answer: tex.stackexchange.com/a/342839/579 , why are the two split elements aligned to the left, without any explicit prompting?  i haven't dug into the code, but assume there must be an implicit assumption that they are "right-side" elements.  any suggestions?

@barbarabeeton The parts before = are right aligned. Just type BBB instead of B to realize it.
@barbarabeeton Anyway, using alignat* is not different from using align*, in this case, as split only allows one alignment point.

3:32 PM
Six spurious spaces fixed today: five in mweights.sty, one in gloss-norsk.ldf. @DavidCarlisle will be proud of me.

@egreg \ExplSyntaxOn?

4:00 PM
@egreg unlikely

@DavidCarlisle I'm not as lazy as you

@egreg well I realise you've probably already started Christmas break and don't have any real work to do

@DavidCarlisle: Where is the page key-value for \includegraphics documented?

@Werner Good code is its own documentation -- some lazy bloke. :)

4:21 PM
@DavidCarlisle I wonder what you mean by "real work" yourself... :-o
@PauloCereda Hey, there just was mention of some "lazy bloke" here recently. ;)

@Werner ooh :)

@Werner It's one of the things added ad hoc by pdftex.tex, not part of the (original) graphics core

@Werner generating C code and segfaulting stuff:-)

Hello respected people.

4:34 PM
I need guidance in using Emacs. I have read the basic tutorial, now where to look for further information since I want to write C++ code and compile/run it on emacs.

@PauloCereda's our local emacs expert ^^^^

@DavidCarlisle oooh
alias emacs=vim
Problem solved. :)

anyways though what do you suggest?

@ADG there is lots of information within the system (C-h m once you load a c++ file should tell you about the relevant mode) or there is a whole stackexchange site for emacs (which I'm not on) emacs.stackexchange.com or ...

@DavidCarlisle Unfortunately, texdoc -l heiko does not return any hits.

4:38 PM
@DavidCarlisle Oh Thanks

@JosephWright Can't find pdftex.tex in the distro. Are there other neat options for pdf inclusion there?

@HaraldHanche-Olsen kpsewhich pdftex.def would show you or just look in the log file of any document using graphics and the path will be there
@HaraldHanche-Olsen main one is inclusion of eps files via on the fly conversion to pdf, but also options such as quiet, resolution, and a few others

4:55 PM
I hate the shitty artifacts from using double lines in tikz -.-

@DavidCarlisle Ah, .def, not .tex like @Werner said. I should have guessed, maybe.

@HaraldHanche-Olsen oh didn't even noticed, must have just auto-corrected while reading:-)

@DavidCarlisle Been there, done that. I once aced an exam in which there was a misprint. I knew the answer to the question, so I didn't notice the misprint. All the others wasted lots of time trying to figure out why they didn't get the desired result.

5:49 PM
Well, great what a bit of hacking with the pgf internals can achieve... no more artifacts for my implication arrows

<knock, knock>
- Who's there?
<very long pause>
- TikZ/PGF.

<knock, knock>
- Who's there?
<very long pause>
- I do not know the key '/tikz/who's there' and I am going to ignore it. Perhaps you misspelled it.

@DavidCarlisle -- similar, but not exactly the same.

@cfr: I didn't know Donald Swann was Welsh! And he has a duck reference name! :)

7:16 PM
@UlrikeFischer Looking at siunitx and the 'selecting the symbols' business, only to be distracted by @Frankmittelbach finding a beamer issue ...

@JosephWright Hm. Imho finding beamer issues is easier ... ;-) Did you already look at the negative zero issue "\num[round-mode=places,round-integer-to-decimal,round-precision=2]{-0.0003}"

@UlrikeFischer Ye: it's tricky as the current 'timing' doesn't allow for this
@UlrikeFischer I'll perhaps look at this over the holidays (there are a few of these things where the flow perhaps isn't obvious to people other than me!)
@UlrikeFischer Oh, finding beamer issues is easy

@PauloCereda Who?
@HaraldHanche-Olsen But surely you couldn't have known the answer to the question on the exam, in that case?

11:30 PM
@cfr -- donald swann and michael flanders were a musical duo who specialized in light-hearted ditties and animal songs. delightful! (you would very likely enjoy their work. i'm surprised that paulo is so familiar with them; i became acquainted in probably the 1960s.) many of their performances are on youtube.
