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 ...

Yout code won't work because the itemize/enumerate \beameritemnestingprefix body begin template is used before the \list internally used by itemize. You can patch \itemize (original definition in beamerbaselocalstructure.sty): \documentclass[14pt]{beamer} \usepackage{xpatch} \xpatchcmd{\itemize} {\def\makelabel} ...

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 ...

Improved version (Other versions can be consulted in the edit history of the answer) Using the xkeyvalue package, this new version has a \EducNotebook command with a key-value system to control the attributes; the main features are: The spiral can be drawn on top, to the left or to the right. The user can select the number of spirals to be used. The ...

CTAN has a document class named lex-br, written in accordance with the Brazilian Complementary Law 95, which has instructions on how to typeset laws and norms. The class author is my good friend Youssef Cherem. :) The class is avaliable in recent TeX distributions. There's an example available as well in the bundle: ...

If you load the tikzmark library, you could do something like this (with some tidying up): \bigskip \tikzmark{p0} {\fboxsep3pt\fboxrule0pt\color{spot!50!white} \hskip\dimexpr-\leftmargin-\hoffset\relax\fbox{\HHUGE\color{spot!50!white}\tikzmark{p3}Postgraduate\tikzmark{p1}} \definecolor{head}{rgb}{173,216,230} ...

Here's an example which merges a list of 8 names and addresses from a data file into a template which uses the labels package to create a list of address labels on an A4 sheet of 16 such labels. The merging is done with textmerg. 2 labels are created for each entry from the data file, for a total of 16 labels. For convenience here, the data file is written ...

Something like the following? \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{siunitx} \begin{document} $F^{-1}_{\text{Risk}_m} (\text{stress level}_m) = \num{0.995} \text{ with } \text{Risk}_m \sim N(\mu_m, \sigma_m^2) \text{ for } m = 1, \dots, 5$ \end{document} And the in text version: \documentclass{article} ...

If using an additonal package is an option for you, then tcolorbox could be used for the job. Here, the two embedded boxes are set by the tcbitemize environment which allows to set the boxes to an equal height. It takes two compilations to see the effect. For the example, I used a 2mm distance between the two boxes. This distance is put as raster column ...

You don't really need a "template" at all, I'd just keep everything to a minimum and just use article (and perhaps geometry if you want to adjust the margins). Keeping the requirements basic means it is easy to switch a final version to whatever publisher class you need.

Without changing anything in cleanthesis.sty, add the following lines in your document, just before \begin{document} \makeatletter \pretocmd{\Hy@org@chapter}{\KOMAoptions{parskip=full}}{}{} \pretocmd{\H@old@schapter}{\KOMAoptions{parskip=full}}{}{} \pretocmd{\cleanchapterquote}{\KOMAoptions{parskip=full}}{}{} ...

Use \setmainfont{Fontin Regular}[SmallCapsFont = Fontin SmallCaps] (newer syntax), or \setmainfont[SmallCapsFont = Fontin SmallCaps]{Fontin Regular} (older syntax).

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 ...

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 ...

There is some example of simple dictionary for Syrian Arabic. It uses LuaLaTeX for typesetting Arabic and current version of odsfile package. It is included in TeX Live distribution, but fixes for some recent issues are only in development version at the moment. I've downloaded your full spreadsheet in .ods format. Unfortunately, it couldn't be processes ...

The fact that the README file contains the locution An up-to-date installation of AMS-LaTeX is also required and points the reader to a non-CTAN website strongly suggests that the instructions haven't been updated in a decade, and maybe quite a bit longer. (The last time I recall seeing the amsmath package being referred to as AMS-LaTeX was long before ...

If you can't find an template on the website of the journal the best way is to contact the journal and ask, what they want to have to publish an article. They know best what they need to fit their production process. If they accept LaTeX, ask for a template and if the do not have on ask them, what they need. It could be they want documentclass article. ...

(Edited to arrange the template in two files and to provide an addendum to show how one might use subfloats.) Even though I fully agree with Harish's and Joseph's recommendations not to use LaTeX for the conference/journal version of your paper -- at least not until you've gotten an explicit go-ahead from the conference organizers and/or journal editors ...

Same content as David's but using scrlayer-scrpage which is recommended with KOMA classes.

Here is a suggestion using package scrlayer (part of the KOMA-Script bundle) to define a new page style for the chapter pages. This new page styles inserts the chapter image and the background box for the chapter title. \RedeclareSectionCommand is used to set the skip before and after the title. Additionally a horizontal skip before the chapter is appended ...

The template works if you replace old day code. Your errors are due to placing it outside of the calender environment. I started in the 2nd half of 2015 and the 1st half of 2015. To shift the cycle, initialize the \cleanerID to some value from 0 to 29. For the given requirement, it's 18. To pause and start, you can use the at most and at least keywords of ...

I defined a \Title command with four arguments to produce the desired layout; for example, the title in the image below was produced using \Title{Mohcine}{Some particular title}{Some test text}{Some other text} Please, feel free to adjust the settings according to your needs.

For the messiness: Read the console output. Packages often try to tell you useful stuff. For example, fancyhdr is as close to knocking you over the head as a piece of software can come without evolving into a robot. It is desperately trying to get your attention: Package Fancyhdr Warning: \headheight is too small (39.36879pt): Make it at least ...

If you're running Debian or Ubuntu, install the texlive-publishers package. The template is called elsarticle. Two-column layout is an option: \documentclass[twocolumn]{elsarticle} For the keywords, you need to define \begin{keywords} keywords go here \end{keywords}
