Crost4196325dJust use word
I rather draw a Finite State Automaton in LaTeX. Wouldn't want to draw it in Word.
Or taking a whole term and underbrace it, to define that part as a variable is a pretty daunting thing to do in Word.
And dozens of other math operations.
(Image is an underbrace example)
soull00t2085325dhow about you push your latex stuff to a private git repo instead?
or don't sync your latex work folder and just run a script that copies all files with desired extensions to another folder that is synced?
TheCommoner2822709325d@happygimp0 Alright, point taken. But at some point Word just doesn't cut it anymore.
It was just an example. Linux is great to quickly put some applications together without them interfering with each other. I mean, that's basically the idea behind the Unix style.
Windows is more designed to have monolithic applications. One application that does it all.
I did change to upload it to git. I did solve that problem. I also could have created a docker container that keeps the aux files somewhere else. There is a multitude of solutions. But it's a design principle of Windows I wanted to showcase.
