I have never written poems, even with pencil, but I think that every book class is equally good as starting point to make a title page, table of contents and index. Which class to choose at this respect is mainly a matter of personal preference, IMHO. These are standard LaTeX procedures and there are hundreds of answers covering any possible problem and ...

The journal recommend using either the article, revtex or amsart document classes. They say the following: TeX/LaTeX - Authors submitting LaTeX files may use any of the standard class files such as article.cls, revtex.cls or amsart.cls. Non-standard fonts should be avoided; please use the default Computer Modern fonts. For the inclusion of ...

I have only tested this in versions pre-8.0. I would highly recommend to read the org-mode manual for LaTeX exporting capabilities. It is very good: org-export-latex. org-mode for Emacs has the optional LaTeX customization by using this: #+LaTeX_HEADER: \newcommand\myaddress{...} You can put as many header information lines as you please which in turn ...

You don't need XeLaTeX, nor many of the customization in that template. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[letterpaper,margin=1in]{geometry} \usepackage{xcolor} \usepackage{fancyhdr} \usepackage{tgschola} % or any other font package you like \pagestyle{fancy} \fancyhf{} \fancyhead[C]{% \footnotesize\sffamily \yourname\quad web: ...

jhep is a somehow very strange class ;-) Seriously spoken: I would not use this class if it is not really necessary, but, honestly, I can not provide an alternative however. \documentclass{jhep} \usepackage{blindtext} \author{me} \abstract{a} \title{JHEP -- a very strange \LaTeX~ class} \begin{document} \blindtext \TABLE{% \begin{tabular}{llll}% 1 ...

One possibility using the background package and a \foreach loop to draw the horizontal rules: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[vmargin=3cm]{geometry} \usepackage{tikzpagenodes} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{background} \definecolor{notepadrule}{RGB}{217,244,244} \backgroundsetup{ contents={% \begin{tikzpicture} \foreach \fila in {0,...,52} ...

Here is a starting point using datatool. I won't discuss the design of the check (layout) as it is a candidate for a separate question. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[a4paper,textheight=5in,left=1in,right=1in]{geometry} %% 5in only for demo \usepackage{xcolor}% \usepackage{adjustbox} % \usepackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents*}{names.csv} ...

The cleveref package patches \appendix assuming it's a parameterless macro, which isn't true with ametsoc. My strategy is thus to recover the correct definition of \appendix from the badly patched macro and doing the patch in a safer way. \documentclass[twocol]{ametsoc} \journal{mwr} \usepackage{cleveref} \usepackage{xpatch} % split the badly patched ...

I expect that the dimensions of the text body are chosen on purpose. Filling a complete A4 (or letter) paper would either require very long lines ⇒ poor readability; or quite large margins ⇒ ineffective high paper costs). Therefore I assume that the one-column layout is intended for a final paper size that is smaller than A4 (or letter). And I ...

The simplest way for modifying the phrase is to add a couple of lines to the .tex document. I'll take the example document as a basis, you find the change between self-explaining comments: %% ---------------------------------------------------------------- %% Thesis.tex -- MAIN FILE (the one that you compile with LaTeX) %% ...

the gsm-l.cls does not deal well with the geometry package. (none of the ams document classes do, since a number of features depend on the fact that the positioning of the output is always centered horizontally, a requirement for sending the output directly through an automated plate-maker to prepare plates for the press.) the three values that are ...

My current resume is based on the article class; source hosted on GitHub and forked from kjhealy. It uses fontspec for OpenType fonts (Adobe Garamond Pro and FontAwesome). Still working on the best way to selectively place content for different purposes/companies. I'm experimenting with linked external documents, under the supposition that the resume ...

You need to redefine the macro \@chapter in this way (since you're loading hyperref) \makeatletter \def\@chapter[#1]#2{\ifnum \c@secnumdepth >\m@ne \refstepcounter{chapter}% \typeout{\@chapapp\space\thechapter.}% \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}% ...

I don't know if a template exists elsewhere, but you can easily provide the required settings: \documentclass[14pt,openany]{memoir} \usepackage[a6paper,textheight=19\baselineskip,footskip=40pt]{geometry} \usepackage[pagestyles]{titlesec} \usepackage{xcolor} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{lipsum}% kust to generate text for the example ...

I had to deal with svmono in the past, so I'm probably in a charted territory. :) The following code uses xpatch to patch \@maketitle and remove the word Springer in the title page: \documentclass[graybox,envcountchap,sectrefs]{svmono} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{xpatch} \makeatletter \xpatchcmd{\@maketitle}{{\Large Springer\par}}{}{}{} \makeatother ...

This was accomplished using a combination of the everypage package and TikZ. To build, run pdflatex -recorder <file> pdflatex <file> The first run with -recorder is to generate the files needed for the currfile package (to automate the bottom left). The second run is to sort out TikZ issues and to resolve labels used for the ...

I've found the right trick... First of all, the right counter is questionnumber. Before setting the counter you have to put \resetcounterfalse MWE: \documentclass[11pt]{examdesign} \title{Exam} \author{Examiner} \date{Today} \class{This One} \begin{document} \begin{multiplechoice} \resetcounterfalse \setcounter{questionnumber}{50} ...

There are better ways to obtain fixed-width tabulars - the main problem with the current template. I've swapped out the use of tabular* with tabularx, provided by the tabularx package (and some array pizzaz): % (c) 2002 Matthew Boedicker <mboedick@mboedick.org> (original author) http://mboedick.org % (c) 2003-2007 David J.

The Stationery folder in TeXShop is stored in ~/Library/TeXShop and its location can't be changed because TeXShop will automatically recreate it from a backup if it is moved or deleted. However, as long as the folder exists, TeXShop will be content. So it's perfectly possible to create the folder somewhere else (like your Dropbox folder) and then place a ...

I think the following should cover most things. If anything is missing or appears wrong, please let me know. File organisation Place named.sty and named.bst in the same folder as your .lyx file. Document class options Go to Document --> Settings --> Document class, choose Report from the list of classes, and add 11pt,openright,twoside,letterpaper to ...

A layout in LyX is analogous to document classes in LaTeX. Since the provided document class (ociamthesis.cls) is not covered by an existing LyX layout, you have to create your own, by following these instructions (also available under Help > Customization; section 5.3 The layout file format): First you have to install the LaTeX class so that it works with ...

This may be a shameless plug, but I ported a Powerpoint and a Powerdot theme to Beamer. Tehy are available here: https://bitbucket.org/marczellm/beamerports. Here is what they look like: I would be happy to receive improvement suggestions, feature requests and bug reports.

This is the first time I've ever succeeded in actually using the background package so caveat emptor... This code is based on code originally posted at http://michaelgoerz.net/blog/2009/07/printable-paper-with-latex-and-tikz/. However, when I just tried that link, it seemed to be broken so I am not sure where to direct the attribution now. Basically, the ...

Not \include but you can use \input so if you want \input{preamble} \include{A} \include{B} \include{C} \input{postamble} where preamble.tex is \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz} \usepackage{array} \begin{document} and postamble.tex is \end{document} you can do that. However I wouldn't: it obscures the form of your document. If you want to ...

\documentclass[11pt,spanish,a4paper]{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} OK so far except that theses usually have chapters so book or report might be preferable. \setlength{\parskip}{2ex} \setlength{\parindent}{0pt} Better to use parskip: \usepackage{parskip}% but do you really want no indentation in a thesis? ...

This should be a start. For setting the pagination parameters use geometry. \documentclass[a4paper]{book} \usepackage[T2A]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[russian]{babel} \usepackage{microtype} \usepackage{titlesec,titletoc,chngcntr} \titleformat{\chapter}[display] {\Large} {\titleline[l]{\chaptertitlename\ ...

My example shows how to do this task without any LaTeX packages.
