A problem I have with LaTeX.

When I've come out of LaTeX, having pressed the OK button, the cursor stubbornly refuses to move on to whatever I want to type next.

Does anyone else have this problem ?

What am I doing wrong ?

This has always been a bit of a problem.

 

The easiest solution, is to curser down the page before you start and then enter the latex in the middle of it so that the curser has already been above and below the entry point.

 

If you forget to do this you can click on the Latex and have the yellow box come up then hit the arrow key twice to place the curser after the LaTex.  then hit return and it will take you to the next line.

 

Another method, an afterthought method like the first, is to cut the Latex then add more lines then paste the latex back in half way down so that your curser has already been below and above it.

 

----------

Also remember when you use Latex add something not in Latex above it. 

I often put 'Like this'  or something similar.

If the post only contains latex and nothing else then it causes entry problems.

Thanks Melody.

Your first suggestion seems to work perfectly and that's what I'll be using from now.

I can't get the yellow box idea to work consistently though, probably something I'm doing wrong.

Your right the first one is the best.

If you forget to do it then try the second one.  But you are right occasionally it refuses to cooperate.

If the second one fails then you can use the third one.

 

Alo:

Sometimes it is also impossible to get the Latex back up for editing which is the main reason why i usually add the Latex (not rendered) at the bottom of the post.  I figured someone would eventually ask me why I did this. But noone ever has :))

 

Mind you, I also leave the unrenedered LaTex there becasue someone might learn something from it.

Why don't you become a member.

You seem like someone that answerers would like to know.

I am very aware that there have been a lot of registration problems lately but Admin hopes he has now fixed them.

If they are not fixed then the notigfications/complaints need to keep coming in. 

If you register then you could let us know if you had any problems ;)
