This may not be what you have asked about at all.

But if you Windows, this is a free TeX editor: MathType: Download TeXaide.

This link no longer gets you to the TeXaide download since Design Science no longer seem to be giving it away. - Aug 2nd 2007, 01:25 PMtukeywilliams
Thanks. I have Texnic Center. But now I can write Word documents using LaTeX!

Is it possible to create a "Field Tower" in LaTeX (however it is called).

See below for what I mean. - Aug 2nd 2007, 03:12 PMJakeD
There is a picture environment in LaTeX that can be used. Here's some code I already had in a document, but it contains all the picture commands you would need to draw your diagram.

$\displaystyle \setlength{\unitlength}{2.5cm}

\begin{picture}(1,1.35)(0,-.50)

\put(-.15,0.0){p}

\put(1.10,.75){q}

\put(1.10,0.0){r}

\put( .85,-.50){s}

\qbezier(0,0)(0,0)(1.00,0.750)

\qbezier(0,0)(0,0)(1.00,0.00)

\qbezier(0,0)(0,0)( .75,-.50)

\end{picture}

$

Code:`\setlength{\unitlength}{2.5cm}`

\begin{picture}(1,1.35)(0,-.50)

\put(-.15,0.0){p}

\put(1.10,.75){q}

\put(1.10,0.0){r}

\put( .85,-.50){s}

\qbezier(0,0)(0,0)(1.00,0.750)

\qbezier(0,0)(0,0)(1.00,0.00)

\qbezier(0,0)(0,0)( .75,-.50)

\end{picture}

PS 2: Don't try making making very complicated pictures because there is a limit on the length of the code the LaTeX engine will allow. That limit is set by the administrators (and I think I asked MathGuru to increase it once.) - Aug 15th 2007, 01:50 PMGAdams
I have just downloaded Texaide but when I copy it to the clipboard on Word and then paste it, it just shows up as code. It doesn't seem to translate into symbols. Any ideas?

TeXAide will not put equations into WORD. You need a full version of MathType to do that. However, will generate LaTeX code that can be used in forums like this.

If you copy code and paste it into a post you will get some thing like this:

\[\frac{w}{z} = \frac{{w\overline z }}{{\left| z \right|^2 }}\].

Change \[ to [math] and change \] to [/math] you will get $\displaystyle \frac{w}{z} = \frac{{w\overline z }}{{\left| z \right|^2 }}$ - Sep 24th 2007, 02:29 AMjanvdl

Is it possible to make box on forum ?

Usually we use \boxed{}

Thanks ! :) - May 2nd 2009, 11:53 PMMoo

Mathman! Would it be too difficult for the administration to create a seperate window that contains all of the latex code that sat next to the reply box? It would make the lives of so many of us here at Math Help Forum so much easier. Myself included. I learned math in prison, on my own, and we didn't have access to computers, or the internet. So, you can only imagine ho difficult it is to train my 27 year old feeble brain to memorize countless lines of code!

What do ya say?(Wondering)

Does any one else think that this is a good idea? - May 3rd 2009, 01:13 PMCaptainBlack
