Generally speaking, there’s always a risk that something will break and the usual caveats thus apply: never update on a deadline, check that the output of your document is satisfactory, etc. That said, backward compatibility is, as David says in the comment, a primary concern of package developers. TeX and its associated programs have always been presented ...

This is what externalize TikZ library does. Try to compile next code with command pdflatex --shell-escape levels (being levels the name of the file). As a result you'll get a pdf file with the whole document, but also another file called levels-figure0.pdf which contains the TikZ figure: In fact you'll get as many levels-figureXXX.pdf files as ...

What MiKTeX often doesn't do is this: after installing a font and the packages required to use it, the type 1 fonts database has to be updated. The reason is essentially that LaTeX uses conventioal font names and a system of metric files to compose the document, then dvips or pdflatex have to know where the real fonts are to be found. This is stored in ...

Your template passes the option dvips to graphicx. But as you are using pdflatex (and not latex + dvips), you are lying to latex and so it doesn't look for the correct graphic type. Remove the option and hope that your template doesn't do more such silly things.

Hy A new version of Asymptote, v2.33, was released today. From the update A work around was implemented for the missing epswrite driver in ghostscript-9.15. So it seems that you can use Ghostscript >=9.15 and Asymptote 2.33 Old message : See Building with asymptote: file-2.tex not found, null surface and also Labels in 3D mode don't work in ...

Unfortunately, yes. Breaks can come from several sources: Sometimes, packages you have used are retired (and no longer in the default distribution) or withdrawn altogether. Packages may have incompatible changes (hopefully documented, but it will take some time to adapt your document to the new conventions) Linux distribution often tend to have a ...

Based on @Ignasi answer and the link he posted about using an editor with PdfLaTeX, the solution is as follows: From foolabs.com download xpdf and unpack to a location on your computer. In Computer Properties Go to Advanced system settings -> Environment Variables and add the path of your particular xpdfbin\bin to the path. This will enable Windows to find ...

To say it short: No. A little bit longer: If you want to have good looking tables you can find hints in several books over typography (for example the german book "Lesetypografie" or "Detailtypografie", I do not have english books, sorry) that for a good typography you should use empty place and no lines. Only to mark the header and the bottom of a table ...

There's always excel2latex; I'm not sure how well it works, but it's on CTAN. If this or some similar program doesn't work, and it is absolutely, positively not an option to recreate these tables in LaTeX, the best you'll probably be able to manage is convert them to an image and include them that way. It seems that there are some convoluted ways to do ...

Alexander's answer was the one got me going. The python.sty file from python.sty on github worked fine when I changed line 61 from: cat \@pythoninclude\space bin/\jobname.py | python > bin/\jobname.py.out 2> bin/\jobname.py.err to: python \jobname.py > \jobname.py.out 2> \jobname.py.err As you can see I also removed the bin folder. So I ...
