:) sounds terrible complicate
It is just a normal figure (basically a grid of squares filled with colours in some simple pattern). It should not take long to compile. I suspect the author actually didn’t know how to draw in LaTeX, so he asked a colleague, who happened to also draw in LaTeX…
Maybe they tried to bring the compilation time down and were not aware that they could insert them as vector graphics?
My professor's notes have a lot of figures. The note is in LaTeX, the figures are also drawn in LaTeX (or at least the font there is Computer Modern), but for some reasons the figures are added as screenshots to the notes.
maybe "package" is the wrong term here... :)
Found it: https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/405077/is-there-a-better-way-to-generate-a-separate-solutions-file-in-the-exam-class/405095#405095
I haven't received it yet :(
For everybody interested in pdf, this was just distributed on the Dante list: https://www.pdfa.org/pdf-days-online-starts-in-september/
oh, yes, that's exactly what I'd do in a Makefile. I forgot that we already had a similar question here...
How about https://tug.org/FontCatalogue/libertinussans/ ? It also has variable stroke widths, but not so pronounced as in marcellus
For letters? Or a CV?
I think there should be an answer of mine on TeX.SX showcasing Makefiles to generate two different outputs from the same source. Let me dig.
`texdoc arara` :)
"Arara is a cross-platform automation tool that's specially designed for TeX. It's included in a standard distribution, so there's no need to install anything additional. It's most effectively understood as a means to record the compilation instructions in the TeX file itself:"
What is Arara?
For very small sizes I find some of the strokes a bit thin. But for normal sizes it looks good to read.
what do you think of https://tug.org/FontCatalogue/marcellus/
`qpdf` keeps the links, the ToC/outline, etc.
oh, I usually print them to pdf :)
I used it to decrypt a bunch of PDF files during my studies (there was this one professor who only distributed password protected PDFs, in a password protected eLearning course...)
:) beauty lies in the eye of the beholder
I like the general looks of Raleway, but can't help but thinking the w is unfitting :)
From the usage point it is indeed better. Problem: if I only use it once a year, I forget the name. With pdftk I start with pdf and have a look what auto-complete will give me
I like `qpdf`.
I find https://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/lato nice to read albeit a bit boring. If it can be a bit more extravagant, with a fancy w: https://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/raleway
I'd go for a Makefile (but I always go for a Makefile....). Alternatively this should also be possible with Arara, but there I'm no help for you :)
Standalone (maybe one matching serif font, but I doubt it). And it should look clean.
Hmm.. maybe some script would do it?
Will it be combined with other fonts or standalone?
I recently spend half an hour debugging a library error with pdftk - I desperately need an opportunity to actually use to justify the time spend debugging :)
sure, you could as well run LaTeX once and afterwards another tool/script to separate the document (possibly, using LaTeX and `pdfpages`, but that would accumulate three LaTeX runs)
Quick poll: What are your favourite (professional or simply beautiful looking) *sans* serif fonts? (you can check the [font catalogue](https://tug.org/FontCatalogue/sansseriffonts.html) if you want to)
You can have them in one document and then split the pdf :)
not without running LaTeX for both targets separately. LaTeX can only produce one PDF/DVI/whatever per run. But you could certainly manage getting different outputs from the same source.
