The difference is a change in babel.def between 2012 and 2013: In TeXLive 2012 babel.def contains \bbl@redefine\LaTeX{\textlatin{\org@LaTeX}} And there the example compiles. This redefinition has then been dropped. Now the definition of \LaTeX is unchanged and no longer can be used in math in current tex systems.

If using the XeTeX or LuaTeX engine with the Plain TeX format is an option, there is a quite simple solution: %\input luaotfload.sty % uncomment this line if using luatex; not required for xetex \font\scriptheadingone="[ITCEDSCR.TTF]" at 24pt \font\scriptheadingtwo="[ITCEDSCR.TTF]" at 18pt {\scriptheadingone A wedding} {\scriptheadingtwo of at least one ...

In case it is useful to anybody, here are the files I used to install ITC Edwardian Script for use with pdfLaTeX. As a preliminary, place the truetype font into a clean working directory and name it EdwardianScript.ttf. Then generate an AFM file from the truetype. There are different ways to do this. ttf2afm is a relatively straightforward option. Then ...

I don't think that cmd.exe was ever directly allowed (in restricted mode). You need to run your document with --shell-escape. When I try your document I get a prompt in the window where pdflatex compiled the document. If you want a new cmd.exe windows you should probably use \immediate\write18{start cmd.exe} (again --shell-escape is needed).

When setting up a LaTex installation it is important that you are consistent with the permissions chosen for both the installation and usage of any portion of the setup. This is especially important for any Windows installation. 1) If you are going to be the only person using LaTeX on this computer and you do not have access to the admin settings, then ...

There's no way to change the spacing between the integral symbols (for double and triple integrals) provided by esint, because they are single characters in the special font associated to the package. What you can do is to modify the spacing provided by amsmath, which is defined by the \intkern@ macro. For instance you can do as follows; the extra -4mu kern ...

Well, I'm not sure but I think package lmodern should be part of the basic installation of MiKTeX. Please see the following image. I called the MiKTeX Package manager and filtered for lm (Latin Modern). Then you can see if Latin Modern is instaled, if you see an date in column installed. BTW: Do not forget to call package lmodern to activate Latin Modern ...

My personal experience suggests that for a MiKTeX repository "to be online" is not only a question whether that repository is accessible via HTTP or FTP, but also whether it contains valid package data. Contary to an old comment of @ulrike-fischer written here, every time when I start the MiKTeX Update Wizzard with a fixed repository selected, the wizzard ...

Your TeX distribution is a little bit outdated and that causes your problem. Please see The following lines: Mine system: Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.16 ... (preloaded format=pdflatex 2016.1.29) ... Your system: 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.16 ... (preloaded format=pdflatex 2016.1.10) ... % ...

The TeXWorks for MiKTeX is a inbuild version and not updated to the very new version 0.6.1. With that I mean, that MiKTeX uses special directorys for the files needed for TeXWorks, for example: C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\x64\texworks.exe C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\doc\texworks\help\Manual\en If you compare that with the original zip file ...

Use \titleformat from package titlesec to change the chapter font. For the lower levels you can use the stared version of this command. \documentclass{book} \usepackage{accanthis} \usepackage{palatino} \usepackage{titlesec} \titleformat{\chapter} [display] {\Huge\bfseries\accanthis} {\huge\chaptertitlename\space\thechapter} {20pt} {} ...

Why not take a look at the git-repo of the developers? https://github.com/mredaelli/circuitikz The values are defined in the file: https://github.com/mredaelli/circuitikz/blob/master/tex/pgfcirc.defines.tex (For versions <0.5 this file was called circuitikz.code.tex) The shapes you will find in the other files, mainly pgfcircbipoles for path ...

As others have already answered, I like to use hyperref. However, as my documents often have \author and \title commands I do not want to repeat myself in the package parameters. Luckily, hyperref also has a parameter for that. If you want it to read the information from your \author and similar tags, simply include it like this: ...
