Now to type in the famous Euler formula. Our aim is to type

e^{j\pi} + 1 = 0

Instead
of typing this blindly, let us use a few shortcuts to reduce
movement. Start out by typing `e^`

. Now instead of
typing `{`

, type another `^`

. You
will see the `e^^`

change instantly to
`e^{}<++>`

with the cursor on
`<+content+>`

. (The `^^`

changed to
`^{}<++>`

.) Continue with the following sequence of
letters: `j`p`

. This will change instantly to
`j\pi`

. (The ``p`

changed to
`\pi`

.) Having typed in all we need to type between
the `{}`

's, press `<C-j>`

.
You will pop back out of the curly-braces. Continue typing the rest
of the formula.
Latex-Suite provides a large number
of shortcuts which should making typing much more fun and fast
if you get acquainted with them. A list is provided here. Definitely spend some time getting a feel for
them. Most of them are pretty intuitive like ``/`

for `\frac{}{}`

, ``8`

for
`\infty`

etc.

Now enter a label.
Press `<C-j>`

to jump to
`<+label+>`

.
We
will use `eqn:euler`

. After typing in
`eqn:euler`

, press `<C-j>`

. This
will take you outside the curly-braces. Another time you used a
Placeholder!

In order to understand the next section better, it will be helpful
to have one more `\label`

. Lets use the handy
`<F5>`

key to insert another equation. This time something simple like the
following will do:

\begin{equation} \label{eqn:simple} 1 + 1 = 2 \end{equation}
