Since version 2.8.6, TeXstudio supports [txs-app-dir] and [txs-settings-dir] as part of the path definition of commands. In your case, something like this should do the trick: [txs-app-dir]\..\MikTexPortable\miktex\bin\pdflatex.exe Fur further details, see the manual.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

The error message "Fatal format file error; I'm stymied" means that TeX binary is trying to load latex.fmt (or pdflatex.fmt) but the version of this TeX binary differs from another TeX binary which created such latex.fmt. There could be two reasons: you have installed two TeX binaries (in different versions) or you have somewhere in your computer the old ...

It is a permission related to Windows 8. It is not necessary to make the user less secure. Right click on the application you need to run. From the context menu select "Run as Administrator." For instance if you are using TeXnicCenter for compiling your TeXt, right click on its shortcut you might have on desktop or Windows 8 apps style alternative and run it ...

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.

You can save your plot as a pdf file in mathematica; for example, "ttc.pdf". And then include it into your tex file \includegraphics[width=0.45\textwidth]{ttc.pdf}

The answer is as @Sigur wrote: run (pdf)latex + bibtex + (pdf)latex + (pdf)latex [+ preview] In TeXmaker, this can be done using shortcuts F6 + F11 + F6 + F6 [+ F7].

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 ...

There is a reference in newtx to newpx, it is in newtx.map: ntx-Italic-tlf-th-t1 ntxtmri " encntx-ecth-tlf ReEncodeFont " <[ntx-ecth-tlf.enc <ntxtmri.pfb ntx-Italic-osf-th-t1 ntxtmri " encntx-ecth-osf ReEncodeFont " <[ntx-ecth-osf.enc <ntxtmri.pfb

How did you compile your document.tex? I turns out, that some latex editors do not add the -shell-escape when compiling. If you do not have it (in the command line, or the latex editor of your choice) try using lualatex -shell-escape document.tex. For example, in TeXstudio or Texmaker the LuaLaTeX command has to be changed from lualatex -synctex=1 ...

Installing the newpx package seems to have helped. Both packages are by the same author, but there seems to be no reference to newpx in the newtx package. This probably qualifies as a bug report, will investigate. UPDATE: According to Michael Sharpe, the package author, this is an unwanted dependency which should be corrected soon.

MiKTeX is what is called a TeX distribution. It is not a single program that you start – it is a collection of programs and files necessary to start working with TeX. MiKTeX will likely have installed a program called "TeXworks". TeXworks is a very basic editor that makes it more comfortable to write TeX and LaTeX files (remembering that these are just ...

After MiKTeX, you have to install, GSView, Ghostscript and an editor (e.g., TeXStudio). At this point you have a complete LaTeX system.
