Text building blocks

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at [our starter guide]( to familiarize yourself further with our format.
  • Please do us a favour and change your username to something more telling than “user1234”.
  • [Welcome to TeX.SX!]( Please add a [minimal working example (MWE)]( that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with\documentclass{...}and ending with\end{document}.
  • [Welcome to TeX.SX]( Questions about how to draw specific graphics that just post an image of the desired result are really not reasonable questions to ask on the site. Please post a minimal compilable document showing that you've tried to produce the image and then people will be happy to help you with any specific problems you may have. See [minimal working example (MWE)]( for what needs to go into such a document.
  • Maybe worth a look: [Why should the minimal class be avoided?](
