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: ...

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 ...

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 ...

I see two workarounds. First: use the --proxy option as in mpm --verbose --trace --update-db --proxy=my.proxy.name:8080 --repository=ftp://ftp.rrzn.uni-hannover.de/putex-archive/systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages/ as Ulrike suggested. This workaround the disadvantage that the proxy parameter must be provided with every mpm command (no persistant setting as ...

In Windows you can get the names of used directorys by using the application/programm MiKTeX Settings (Admin) for the administrator account and MiXTeX Settings for the user account. Click on Roots to view the used directorys for MiKTeX. Don't forget to check box "show MiKTeX-maintained root directorys".

I do not have enough reputation to comment and my is just a small update of what @RoKi0815 wrote: At least for WinEdt 9, the correct inverse search command is -inverse-search "\"%B\winedt.exe\" \"[Open(|%%f|);SelPar(%%l,8)]\"" Note the %B for WinEdt installation directory, and %%f and %%l that will become %f and %l in SumatraPDF to denote the file name ...

As noted in this answer, xindy has been included with MikTeX since June 2015. As long as MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin is included in your path, you'll have xindy and texindy available. Here's a MWE: xindy-test.tex: \documentclass{book} \usepackage{makeidx,lipsum} \makeindex \begin{document} \lipsum[1] \index{Hello} \index{world} \printindex \end{document} You ...

After installation open the texworks editor (coming along with miktex) and navigate to edit >> preference. A popup will come.

Oh, never mind, it looks like MiKTeX installs stuff in c:\Users\{myusername}\AppData\Roaming\MiKTeX\2.9\tex\latex\circuitikz I was looking at the directory where I installed MiKTeX.

None of the above worked for me as MikTeX threw different errors, so I uninstalled and instead installed TeXLive. I tried to compile and it said something to the effect of Can not create file foo.pdf So I went to delete foo.pdf and it said something to the effect of Can not delete. File locked by foo.pdf.old.old I did a quick Ctrl+Alt+Del and ...

Running on the command line makeglossaries --help one can see the options it knows. Beside other the -d switch: So add -d auxiliaries to the call.

The .ent file seems to be created only if you actually have an endnote (that is, at least one); otherwise you get the error you describe, occurring at the point that the .ent file is to be read in with all the endnotes in it. Best would be if the package either generated an empty file, when there are no endnotes, or checked for the file before trying to ...

The Miktex Packages have been updated now! A Simple update with both the Admin and the User tool should solve this Problem! Some Users have downloaded packages with the User Package manager, if you do not use both it is possible that you do not update this package!

You can get rid of the extrayear fields with \AtEveryCitekey{\clearfield{extrayear}} \AtEveryBibitem{\clearfield{extrayear}} You will probably lose APA compliance that way and finding the right entry in the bibliography becomes a game of chance.

Looks like you have everything in the correct place but you need to refresh the File Name Database for MikTex to find it. Go MikTex Settings (Admin) from your start menu (or equivalent) → click Refresh FNDB. This will refresh the database letting MikTex know the locations of the packages.

LaTeXTools doesn't support -aux-directory or -output-directory (yet). However, if you can stomach having a couple of symbolic links in the same directory as your main tex document, you can use something like roeeebar's suggestion from this issue, which adds a settings block to your sublime-project file (I've modified this for Windows, but I haven't tested ...

Yesterday the repository was down. This might have been the problem. Another reason for this message may be the inappropriate proxy configuration. If you are using a proxy server for connecting to the interenet you should click the "change" button in the package installation dialog and enter the settings of your proxy server there. Another possibility for ...

Simple solution If you are using Texworks to compile the LaTeX file, just change the Typeset to XeLaTeX + MakeIndex + BiBTeX. It worked with me even without using the package \usepackage{epstopdf}

Do not update MiKTeX right now, as there seems to be a mess with the tools package. I suppose the problem will be settled very soon. In the meantime, if you need moderncv, you can proceed as follows: download from CTAN or one of its mirrors, in /pub/tex/systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages the file moderncv.tar.lzma + these 3 files: pr.ini, ...

The following seems to work (no errors for 1 full day): All of the files pertaining to this question are in my Google Drive folder. While compiling, Google Drive sees that a new version of a file has appeared and starts synchronizing. This seems to lock the file, making it impossible to remove or change it in the mean time. PDFTeXify does multiple runs and ...

Sounds as if the map file has not been updated. Run on a command line updmap. Remark: This is often necessary -- if you don't kill the installation -- as the admin package manager can not update user map files.

The reason can be found in the log file: Class scrbook Info: Deactivating the titlesec workaround, (scrbook) because package is newer than expected on input line 4. There was an update of package titlesec. If you really want to use the new version together with a KOMA-Script class you have to install the prerelease of version KOMA-Script ...

I've given the log file a closer look and found the following hint: Class scrbook Warning: Usage of package `titlesec' together (scrbook) with a KOMA-Script class is not recommended. (scrbook) I'd suggest to use the package only (scrbook) if you really need it, because it breaks several (scrbook) ...
