2019-01-25 Podcasting is Review

I’ve been going through my house rules, more or less one page per podcast episode. Talking about the rules, and wonder about the actual use these rules have seen at the table, has led to quite a few changes for the better, I’d say.

Today I got rid of the reputation section and ended up saving an entire page.

Too bad I can only get a three column index that spills onto a second page, or a four column index that cannot by hyperlinked, though.

LaTeX! So close... Something about the tufte class loading the hyperref package before imakeidx or something. It makes my eyes glaze over.

This is what I tried in 4col-index:

diff --git a/Halberds-and-Helmets.ltx b/Halberds-and-Helmets.ltx
index af1c9ee..751aa21 100644

I’ll also note that the index no longer appears in the bookmarks of the PDF.

Option 1: three column index, hyperlinks, and TOC entry, using makeidx:

Three Columns

Option 1: four column index, no hyperlinks, and no TOC entry, using imakeidx:

Four Columns
