Package babel makes the shorthand active in \begin{document} to avoid troubling classes and packages with active characters. \shorthandon and \shorthandoff enables and disables shorthands: \shorthandon{"}% {\large \textsc{Gimnazija "`Branislav Petronijevi\'{c}"'}\par} {\small Ub, Vuka Karad\v{z}i\'{c}a 15 \par} \shorthandoff{"}% Or avoid the use of ...

The toc line is styled by the code you showed: if you changed chapter to section it would be styled like a section in the table of contents you can switch openright styles in your frontmatter using \csname @openrightfalse\endcsname and \csname @openrighttrue\endcsname

A manual translation of the paragraph on the \review and \revauthor commands in the paper manual: The new command \review[optional]{author}{title} is designed for draft reviews. The command takes the author and title of the discussed work. These are typeset as a \subsubsection, and included in the table of contents. Optionally, the author of the ...

With only code fragments to go by, I can't be entirely confident that this will work. You could use a longtable environment instead of a tabular* environment, along the following lines: \usepackage{longtable} \newenvironment{entrylist}{% \setlength\LTleft{0pt} \setlength\LTright{0pt} \begin{longtable}{@{}l@{\extracolsep{\fill}}l@{}} % this tells ...

The argument to \begin{letter} is processed in a peculiar way: the first \\ is an argument delimiter for another macro, rather than simply a line break command. Therefore \begin{letter} must see an explicit \\, which it doesn't if the argument is \thetoaddress. With \expandonce (that's provided by etoolbox, so I use \providecommand just in case you decide ...

You need to download all of the files at this site http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates This is Option 2: LaTeX2e - Tighter Alternate style. And you need to put them all into the same folder. Now open the sig-alternate.tex file in TeXStudio. It should now compile correctly. Since this class and example template uses bibtex. You ...

Here's a starter, built on MacTeX 2013 with the Charter font installed: % !TEX TS-program = XeLaTeX \documentclass[11pt]{article} \usepackage[lmargin=2in,rmargin=2in]{geometry} % wider margins \usepackage{setspace} \onehalfspacing % 130% spacing between lines: % http://texblog.org/2011/09/30/quick-note-on-line-spacing/ \usepackage{fontspec,lipsum} ...

Just as a supplement to R. Schumacher's answer, it may be worth explaining the difference between a class/style file (.cls) and a template/document (.tex). Class files are like recipes which determine the overall formatting of documents and specify some reasonable defaults. As an author, you don't typically need to worry about what's in them. You just tell ...

If you are not loading natbib, you can pacth \thebibliography so it uses \section* instead of \chapter*: \documentclass[10pt]{book} \usepackage{etoolbox} \patchcmd{\thebibliography} {\chapter*} {\section*} {} {} \renewcommand{\bibname}{References} % this is just for the example \usepackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents*}{refs.bib} ...

I changed the errors to a minimally working example... \documentclass[]{letter} \begin{document} % If you want headings on subsequent pages, % remove the ``%'' on the next line: \pagestyle{headings} \begin{letter}{William Shakespeare} % Since good old William's 450th birthday in a few days ;-) \address{London} \opening{Dear William} \signature{Ben ...

\documentclass{article} % put your font commands here for the fonts \begin{document} \frenchspacing\raggedright ... your document here \end{document} ^^ this pretty much does the job. You might add \usepackage[small]{titlesec} if "small fonts" ought to apply to titles as well. Btw, in your example, there's a hyphenated word buff-er leaving only 2 letters ...

SVMult is made by the german Springer Verlag. See their official FTP repository at ftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/tex/latex/: There are two directories svmult and the newer one svmult1. I think the latest svmult.cls from 2007 can be found at svmultt1/styles/svmult.cls.
