LaTeX & Macros: Creating Macros & Macros without arguments

Hello, how are you? :)

In this post I tell you

  • How to declare the macros, and where
  • How to create macros, in this time, macro without arguments

Let's Start!!!

Declaring Macros

This is valid for any kind of macros, but in this post I just talk about macros without arguments

First of all, you need to know that The names of the macros must not match with existing ones, so you will have an error if you create a macros with the equation name.

Macros are declared in the preamble, the syntax is the following

\newcommand{\name}{task}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Where

-\name is the way you will call the macro in your text

Be careful you need to use the \ when declaring the macro, because now that word is going to be the name of the instruction

-task are the actions that the macro will perform

Here you can use normal text or instructions already defined

Creating macros

Let's create our first macros, with name \post and the action that prints Hello
