This is the 10th edition of my TUGboat `Tips & Tricks.' This time, we shall first see how to write `dancing text,' roman numerals, how to draw under and over braces on same elements, and how to display aligned (in)equations systems. We will then end by discussing on BibLaTeX and Biber, which constitute a promising alternative to BibTeX. [less ▲]

We will here again consider many tips and tricks. This time, they will mostly come from Glad Deschrijver, TeX Tricks, 2011. (http://users.ugent.be/~gdschrij/LaTeX/textricks.html.) Tricks: vertically aligned itemize environments, allowing linebreaks after comma in math mode, writing under and over elements, and using stacks, footnotes with a new number at each section, footnotes in tabular, splitting algorithm environments on multiple pages, let " produce opening/closing quotation marks, indenting some text but not the first line, using diagonal dots positioned according to the opposite diagonal, using a centered verbatim environment, drawing a table with dashed lines, shaded cells and arrows pointing at a row and a column, correct spacing around square brackets (used for sets) in math mode.

I have written three LaTeX2e packages, namely bigints, dashundergaps, and plantslabels. Because there are so many submitted packages, TeX-information sources are so used that communications rapidly go to the archives, their respective emergences could have been unoticed by the majority of the Community. I here propose a brief summary about what they do, and how they could be useful for your work. [less ▲]

LaTeX is written in such a way that even skilled TeXnicians sometimes learn new tricks, or come to problems or errors that they cannot solve, or explain. This time, our article will be divided in two (imaginary) parts: the first (Section 2) will treat 1. Avoiding erroneous references for floats, and the second (the rest) will give, as in my preceding paper, some ways to achieve special things in LaTeX2e. These tricks are often explained on the Internet, but very difficult to find. The second part will then speak about 2. Exporting spreadsheets into LaTeX, 3. Writing QED symbols as nicely as possible, 4. Counting the number of pages and tables, 5. Writing messages on would-be blank pages, 6. Writing dots in matrices, 7. Drawing logic gates, 8. Writing enumerations with textcircled numbers. [less ▲]

Some very simple things to do in LATEX2e are often misunderstood (or simply unknown) to the –even skilled– writer. We here present some useful codes for 1. pedagogical uses: write a matrix with borders; show simplifications of terms in mathematical developments, 2. presenting data: make an accolade in a table, 3. solving the Springer’s tocdepth problem in svmono class, 4. writing european envelopes in an efficient way, 5. improving typography: the microtype package.
