Welcome! Just look at all the questions on this site from people who are struggling to adapt thesis templates to their needs and their university's requirements. I think that shows it is better to start from scratch if you have the time. My recommendation is to use the memoir class and base your customized design on the model thesis demonstrated in the ...

First ask your university if they have a LaTeX template. If they don't, then I would definitely ask around other students that have indeed produced a "valid" thesis with LaTeX. Then use that, scrap all the text out, and there you have your university-proof template. Make sure it conforms to the standards by asking whoever enforces the requirements, and be a ...

The intended usage in article is to place address information after the author separated by \\ and to separate individual authors with \and \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage[a4paper]{geometry} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{microtype} \usepackage{siunitx} \usepackage{booktabs} \usepackage[colorlinks=false, pdfborder={0 0 ...

I can't speak for the AAS, but I am well acquainted with the templates from AMS (the American Mathematical Society). These templates are quite basic, containing only a few packages that are known to be used almost universally, along with recommendations in the form of comments regarding other packages that are known to be compatible with the document ...

Start from scratch. There is no other way to learn how things work. At least if you are from Europe: use the class "scrbook" from the KOMAscript bundle. Clean, good manual, all you need, no nonsense. Spent some time to set up a work flow for your citations and bibliography. People nowadays use biblatex and biber. I'm a fan of Zotero, but there are many ...

For me it works to use this definition: \setbeamertemplate{sidebar canvas left}{ {\includegraphics[width=1cm,height=5cm]{example-image-16x9.jpg} \vfill \hspace*{0.4cm}\vspace{-0.1px}\colorbox{ULB}{}\\ \hspace*{0.4cm}\vspace{-0.1px}\colorbox{ULBpoly}{}\\ \hspace*{0.4cm}\vspace{-0.1px}\colorbox{ULBdroit}{}\\ ...

To make LyX aware of installed packages, run reconfigure (Tools → Reconfigure). If you need another package that is required by LyX and not provided by MacTeX, install it in ~/Library/texmf or /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local. If you choose to install in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local, you will need to run mktexlsr /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local in order ...

Putting a lot of effort into a template for a journal that does not have a template is most likely not worth while. I assume they accept LaTeX files and so the easiest way for the journal to handle them is if they are as generic as possible. Home made templates may include packages that are or may become outdated or incompatible and may involve home-cooked ...

Another example, this time using the book class (to setup book like margins and page layout), the poetrytex package to deal with the contents, list of poems, poem numbering, and other anthology things, and the verse package to actually typeset the poem (just being used for basic indentation in this case). I have not changed any of the fonts or formatting ...

I'm using the current MiKTeX 2.9, ecact from log file: pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.5-1.40.14 (MiKTeX 2.9) (preloaded format=pdflatex 2013.7.29). BTW: Which version do you use? It could be that your version is a little bit outdated?! Have a look at the beginning of your log file and add it to your question. If I copy the content of the zip file to a ...

Since nobody else has done so, I include my own thesis template as an example of how simple it can be. \documentclass[a4paper, 12pt]{report} \usepackage[cmex10]{amsmath} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{cite} \usepackage[toc,xindy,nonumberlist,acronym,shortcuts]{glossaries} ...

Its a dirty hack, but If you want to avoid pgf, try this \logo{% \makebox[1.85\paperwidth]{% \hfill% \hspace{3em} \includegraphics[width=1cm,keepaspectratio]{example-image-a}% \hfill% \includegraphics[width=1cm,keepaspectratio]{example-image-b}% }% } The idea: the logo is centered in the top left corner. If you ...

This might work: I will add a longer explanation how I came to this solution (and I am by far a Beamer expert), so other can see how to approach problems like this. First you see that the used theme is "Berkeley", so going into the definition file beamerthemeBerkeley.sty (just google it and you'll find the code). There we can see that the outer theme ...
