I would to know if with classicthesis the microtype package must be loaded, or is loaded by default from classicthesis.sty. And if is loaded, what features are enabled?

if the microtype package must be loaded, is better this way:

\documentclass{scrreprt}

\usepackage[protrusion=true,expansion=true,auto=true,tracking=true]{microtype}

\usepackage[pdfspacing]{classicthesis}

\begin{document}

test

\end{document}

or this?:

\documentclass{scrreprt}

\usepackage[pdfspacing]{classicthesis}

\microtypesetup{protrusion=true,expansion=true,auto=true,tracking=true}

\begin{document}

test

\end{document}

Another thing: this is a good setting basic for microtype?

\usepackage[protrusion=true,expansion=true,auto=true,tracking=true]{microtype}

Yes, classicthesis loads microtype (line 232 of classicthesis.sty` reads \RequirePackage{microtype}); with the option pdfspacing, classicthesis uses expansion=false. –  Gonzalo Medina Sep 3 '12 at 18:07
    
ok i'm was confused if the microtype package is loaded only for the title tracking but not for the text... –  FormlessCloud Sep 3 '12 at 18:10
    
@GonzaloMedina so these are the right settings basic for microtype in classicthesis and i must not add other settings of microtype? –  FormlessCloud Sep 5 '12 at 12:38

Those are the basic options used by default, and I guess the package author considered them to be the minimum required, but you can use the options that you consider best suit your needs and won't spoil the general layout. –  Gonzalo Medina Sep 6 '12 at 13:54

Yes, classicthesis loads microtype with the option pdfspacing. You can change the options by issuing

\PassOptionsToPackage{<options>}{microtype}

before

\usepackage{classicthesis}
