## Typography [Software]

Hi Shuanghe,

I see.

❝ […] alignment of the numbers the journal made in those tables.

Yep. Extremely ugly.

❝ Anyway, M$Word is the only one I can use at work so I'm a bit numb about the format now. I used to be able to spot 2 consecutive space in a document immediately and always had to delete one; … Welcome to the club. I also like superfluous space before the paragraph mark. IIRC, this was already introduced in Word 6. ❝ … now I accept report with a small table in the middle of page occupying 1/3 page and another 1/3 on top and on bottom page are completely empty, never even mention the orphans and widows on many pages (though I haven't seen the latter much recently, maybe M$ change settings?)...

Duno. In the default setup (for ages) it should be prevented. However, if someone changes that in a particular paragraph, bad luck. Furthermore, the copy-and-paste devil spreads this disease faster than SARS-CoV-2. In my CRO we had templates for everything. Sometimes tables looked weired. Couldn’t figure out why until I saw a colleague pressing the while dragging a vertical column limiter with the left mouse key. Great.

❝ […] But even for some of the "supported commands" I cannot use it here. e.g., \LaTeX{} and \TeX{} are supported and they should output their typographic symbols, respectively, according to the previous link, but it seems I cannot get them to work.

Strange enough both are rendered in italics: $$\small{\LaTeX}$$ and $$\small{\TeX}$$. But \rm\LaTeX works: $$\small{\rm\LaTeX}$$
