# Footer: Typeset by AmS-TeX

How can I make a document display as a footer the text "Typeset by AmS-TeX"? I'm having trouble finding how to make this. Can you please help?

Ams-TeX refers to a particular macro package developed for AMS by Michal Spivak. The text "Typeset by AmS-TeX" was automatically inserted when the document used amsppt.sty and, if I remember correctly, this could be disabled by saying \nologo. What's your setting? –  egreg Nov 23 '11 at 23:20
I tried:\input{amstex} \documentstyle{amsppt} \usepackage[left=1.5cm,top=2.5cm,right=1.5cm,bottom=2.5cm]{geometry} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx} but didn't work –  user10 Nov 23 '11 at 23:25
No, amsppt.sty and amstex.tex don't go along with LaTeX. What precisely are you trying to do? The "Typeset by AmS-TeX" makes little sense for a document typeset in LaTeX: it would be a lie. –  egreg Nov 23 '11 at 23:36
This might not work, since AMS-TeX is built on plain TeX and might not work with LaTeX at all. –  mbork Nov 23 '11 at 23:36
Could you use \usepackage{fancyhdr} and then \cfoot{Typeset by AmS-TeX}? –  cmhughes Nov 23 '11 at 23:45

Use AMS-TeX and the preprint style amsppt.sty and compile with TeX or pdfTeX, not LaTeX.

A minimal working example:

\magnification 1300
\input amstex
\documentstyle{amsppt}
\pagewidth{6.5 true in}
\pageheight{9.0 true in}
\topmatter
\title A Test Document \endtitle
\date November 24, 2011\enddate
\endtopmatter
\document
Text
\bye


Relevant lines in amsppt.sty:

\def\inslogo@{\insert\copyins{\logo@}}
\def\logo@{\rightline{\eightpoint Typeset by \AmSTeX}}


\inslogo@ is used in \endtopmatter, so this is also required.
