What would you change about the new SFN?

This isn't a democracy.

I've noticed, nor do we have any reasonable expectation of understanding what we are supposed to have doen wrong when you say "Logical falisy" without explaining your judgement.

 

Scared of equality?

I don't think I've ever typed "logical falisy" in my life.

 

Regardless, what has prevented you from asking about logical fallacies, or Googling them to learn about them?

I would add in the ability to create mathematical symbols such as pi in the default editor without copying or pasting, to better support speculation, mathematics, theorization, and hypothesis creation.

Something different than LaTex?

Didn't even realize that was there, I thought you just copied and pasted from the internet and cited sources..... Wow...... :mellow:

On my machine, holding Alt and typing 227 on the numeric keypad gives the pi symbol. π

 

Here's a reference to many more symbols using the technique: Alt Code symbols on Laptop keyboard Go to their Home page for other systems.

I wish I could convince SFN to cut back on my yearly stipend, $150,000 dollars a year is too much to pay even me to hang around the place to give it style. $75,000 should be quite enough... Don't even think of cutting back on my cheese nips!!!

That $150K would be better spent hiring a pro comedian.

I didn't find how to insert pre-formatted text, or equivalently for my purposes, obtain a fixed-width font.
The equivalent of html <pre> </pre> tag, or to courier new.
It would be useful to align lists of numbers, for instance there at the end of the message:

Or is it already available somewhere? Thanks!

You want the Code button in the toolbar, represented as a pair of angle brackets <>. It looks like this:

foobar
  baz
  bin
sheep

You can select whether to have it syntax highlighted for a particular programming language, or just displayed plain.

What a good idea, +1,  shame it doesn't work on my PC.

 

However you have prompted me to look further.

Hold the windows key down and hit the letter R.Type charmap.exe into the runbox.

Choose your symbol(s)

Choose copy

Paste them in here.

Note you can also then select and increase font size, as I have done to 36 in the examples.
