As one of the resident linguists here, I'd like to add my two cents to this discussion. First off, language meanings aren't carved in stone (or in dictionaries), but are essentially determined by language use. And although there are some experienced LaTeX users on the site who would like to prescribe a particular meaning to the term, this is fundamentally ...

The term isn't used (in that sense) anywhere in latex itself. It is usually means a small sample document that loads up some particular class and selection of packages and has some dummy text, so people can just start from that and edit rather than read enough documentation to build a new document from scratch.

You do not specify the minimum (similar?) requirements of your desired magazine layout, but in general, such complex and inconsistent layouts are more suitable for desktop publishing software as Scribus or InDesign. Said that, there are the paperTeX document class: There also a newspaper package to produce a similar layout to the New York Times: And ...

A template is a complete example code for example to write the formalias for the master thesis of a special university. Then there are added special commands to insert author, etc. at the required place, fullfilling the given title page etc. of the special university. The problem with template is that a lot of them are buggy ... The template uses ...

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: \documentclass[a4paper,capitulo,...

That very same question has been asked before by Barbara Beeton in TUGboat That question is impossible to answer though, because the term template is not defined for LaTeX. Let's take a look from different perspectives. Why is someone searching for a template? Almost all users using that term want a base to start with. A mould to pour in content. An ...

Update redefining \chapterlinesformat Since KOMA-Script version 3.19 the command \chapterlinesformat can be redefined to change the layout of chapter titles that have no prefix line. Now it is possible to set a different entry for the page headings or to use the starred versions of the chapter title command. Chapter titles with more than one line are ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

I had some issues with that template, so here's a solution with the article class. I have used 10pt to fit the example in a single page, but you can use 12pt too, for example. Please note that I don't speak Fārsī, so there might be mistakes in the title, author or even the date, although I tried to check to the best of my abilities and everything seems OK. ...

I've discovered that I'm a Grumpy Old Man (GOM) but I want to thank everyone who has answered and obviously put a lot of thought into it. As a GOM, and considering the other answers I'm now thinking of a Template as being example (La/TeX) code, preferably as a complete example document or as a code snippet for a particular task. I think that my summary word ...

Use a \parbox for #1 too. Add the following in the preamble. \renewcommand{\entry}[4]{% \parbox[t]{0.18\linewidth}{#1\par}&\parbox[t]{0.82\linewidth}{% \textbf{#2}% \hfill% {\footnotesize\addfontfeature{Color=lightgray} #3}\\% #4\vspace{\parsep}% }\\} Adjust 0.18\linewidth and 0.82\linewidth as you wish.

(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 ...

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 ...

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 \...

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. ...

The template already fiddles with the title, so, you are not doing any harm by adding few more lines as in \title{ \normalfont \LARGE \textsc{University of Example - School of Management, Economics, Law, Social Sciences and International Affairs} \\ [25pt] % Your university, school and/or department name(s) \horrule{1pt} \\[0.4cm] % Thin top horizontal rule ...

Dapper Invoice — A billable-time invoice featuring style over substance It's light on functionality, but it looks a fair bit more modern than any other LaTeX template I've seen published out there (which is why I took the time to write it).

Update: The template has been updated. It is now possible to define the separator between the icon and the content for all instances at once. By default, it is a \space, but can be changed to a \quad or something to your liking. \renewcommand{\acvHeaderIconSep}{\quad} The folloing is now obsolete and won't work anymore. Add to preamble: \patchcmd{\...

There aren't many LyX users on here, and probably fewer who play with LyX layout files. I have done this before, and the general steps involved are: Find the Customising LyX: Features for the Advanced User document and go to section 5: Installing New Document Classes, Layouts and Templates. Section 5.2.3 talks specifically about .cls files. I highly ...

Really you do not need any template, only the standard itemize environment and items with the optional argument (i.e, \item[...]) where you can change the dots by your preferred check/checked box, for example: \usepackage{amssymb} % in the preamble % .................................... \begin{itemize} \item[$\square$] foo \item[$\boxtime$] bar \end{...
