Bob:

We need to apply a table style to do this. I will get back to you with something soon. Also, please add the caption to the table via the table settings and not as a separate line of text.

Re: Remixed text footnotes/references keep old numbering system #remix #referencing

Dorte Madsen
 

Thanks for pointing this out. When students transfer material numbering of references, figure numbers, and similar often end up being hard coded in as in this text. In your edited page you can simply change "28" to "1" so it doesn't look so strange.

ok. We need to solidify our internal referencing system, especially when coupled with the Remixer. We have played with different approaches. I won't have a quick answer for you, but we will get it completed soon.

issue with hypothes.is in LibreText

Robert Belford
 

Hi All,  
I am having an issue reading annotations at the bottom of chapter landing pages, 
 the code I am using is this and the scroll bar does not work.  
<p><iframe frameborder="1" height="400px" scrolling="yes" src="https://hypothes.is/search?q=tag:f19c1402c1b;" width="100%"></iframe></p>
(I just took out the <p>  </p> and that did not fix it)

I can get to the missing annotation from here (and it was an exemplar), but that is the long way about
or here

Now if I go to my Drupal IoCT site, the bottom of this page does have a box and the scroll bar does work
The code I am using is:
<p><iframe frameborder="1" height="400px" scrolling="yes" src="https://hypothes.is/search?q=py08ualrf2018" width="100%"></iframe></p>

Does anyone have an idea why the scroll bar does not work in LT, but works in Drupal?

Cheers,
Bob

Re: Formatting code references not originally styled as code #Formatting

On my menu there is a 'code' format. It isn't part of the drop-down menu, but part of the menu that rests above, select 'format' and then 'code' and see if that changes to a monospace font. 


Re: image use

You are right, they are going to charge me $32 to read it! ... too
bad, it is really a shame that science is gated and not available to
any but the elite. (This is not a rant, ... I was thinking that since
the image was on a site that appears to be affiliated with the UN, it
might be open access, but I was wrong). None-the-less, I will
contact them and see what happens.

Formatting code references not originally styled as code #Formatting

Ethan Turner
 

Hi all, I hope I'm asking this in the right place. I'm integrating a Java programming textbook and have been running into some uncertainties in formatting. In the original book, the author uses bold text to highlight important phrases and a blue monospaced style for code in paragraphs. However, a different font is used to reference certain parts of the code without actually styling it as code. I've attached a screenshot to try and illustrate what I'm describing (null is in the monospaced style, and words like size, target, Node, and data are in the different font).

Any thoughts on how to format this? So far, I've stuck to using bold for those words as well. Should LaTeX be used to make them stand out better?
Best,
Ethan


LT account for Grad Student

Robert Belford
 

Hi Delmar,

Do we still go through you for setting up LT accounts? Kumari is a
grad student of Shanzi and she has been helping him with the
biochemistry textbook. She was going to also help us with the
workshop in Fayetteville, and I thought it would be prudent to get her
her own account. I am ccing her, but her email and name are Kumari
Karn <kvkarn@...> .

Can you set her up so she can create content? (She has been using
Shanzi's login, and I think she should have her own).

Cheers,
Bob

Re: Creating PDF files

Delmar Larsen <dlarsen@...>
 

That is great.

I made is semi-public so that it will work, but no one can see it.

If you like, we can print the book and bind it via luluexpress and you can edit/review that way instead of individual pages. It may take 7-9 days though.

I would like to convert the chapters into individual PDF files so that I can do a final review while reading them from on my iPad where I can annotate final corrections (particularly of equations). When I click on the PDF button I get the following message: This page is not publicly accessible. I assume this has something to do with where the text is stored or its permissions. Is there anyway to convert it into a PDF prior to making it fully public?
