Vision

Set your Text wants to remove difficulties people experience in using LaTeX. One can easily make professionally looking publications with the help offered by Set your Text. The needs of the customer are in focus, […] not the system LaTeX. Many other parties that offer help with LaTeX spend a lot of effort in explaining how great LaTeX is. That is very interesting, but it will not necessarily help you, the user, with your project. Set your Text knows a lot about LaTeX, but Set your Text will not annoy you with this knowledge. We will first have a look at your needs, at your questions. Then we will learn you how you can fulfill your requests. Thus, you can make use of the gained capabilities, also when Set your Text might not be available.

Who

Vic van Dijk paintingVic van Dijk uses LaTeX since his studies Chemical Engineering. He refrains from typing code; Vic uses a graphical user interface as much as possible. That works way easier, while still obtaining the superior output quality that LaTeX delivers. 

Vic pities that very few people know how to use LaTeX in a user friendly way. He gets energy from learning stuff to people. How nice when you see that people can learn to make their publications with LaTeX on their own!
