Gallery

A selection of images or sample documents related to my books or packages or to code I have helped develop. For some great examples of images created using LaTeX, have a look at the TikZ and PGF gallery on texample.net, or for some examples of what can be done with TeX have a look at The TeX showcase.

The purpose of LaTeX-related sections of the gallery is to illustrate various styles that can be created with the particular package. If you want to know how to do something not illustrated here or you want to know how to adapt one of these examples, please post your query to an appropriate site such as TeX on StackExchange or The LaTeX Community Forum.

Click on the images below for details.

If you have a small screen, you may prefer to switch on the small image setting.

glossaries

These are some sample documents that use the glossaries package. Most of these examples use dummy lorum ipsum text, one of them uses the sample image files provided by the mwe package, which is available on both MiKTeX and TeX Live, and one of them uses the sample bibliography file xampl.bib, which should be readily available in your TeX distribution. Make sure you have an up-to-date version of the glossaries package if you want to try any of these examples. For help with building the glossary see Incorporating makeglossaries or makeglossaries-lite or bib2gls into the document build.

glossaries-extra

The glossaries-extra package is an extension to the glossaries package. It provides better abbreviation handling and extra features, as demonstrated by these examples. For help with building the glossary see Incorporating makeglossaries or makeglossaries-lite or bib2gls into the document build.

bib2gls

With the base glossaries package you can sort and collate using makeindex or xindy or using TeX. (See the glossaries performance page for a comparison.)

The glossaries-extra package additionally provides a way of simply listing all defined entries in the order of definition without the need for an external tool, but it also provides another sorting and collation method and that’s with bib2gls. Some of the examples below can be found in bib2gls’s examples directory and are described in more detail in the “Examples” chapter of the bib2gls user manual. For help with building the glossary see Incorporating makeglossaries or makeglossaries-lite or bib2gls into the document build.
