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 ...

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} ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

\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? ...

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} ...

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 ...

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.

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} ...

Recently added document class, cv4tw by Geoffrey Gouez, offers a "LaTeX CV class, with extended details". The class offers entries for assets and social networks; customizable styles are provided. The class comes with no documentation, but a worked example offers some guidance. This package is still under development but it shows great progress. ...

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 ...

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 ...

Put this just before the \begin{document} \makeatletter \renewcommand*{\makeletterclosing}{ \@closing\$3em]% {\includegraphics[width=2cm]{example-image-a} \par \bfseries \@firstname~\@lastname}% \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@enclosure}}{}{% \\% \vfill% {\color{color2}\itshape\enclname: \@enclosure}}} \makeatother Change ... 5 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 ... 4 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\ ... 4 You can download the source as for most documents on arxiv: http://arxiv.org/format/1303.5621v1 4 Add this to the preamble of your document: \usepackage{etoolbox} \patchcmd{\titlepage} {\thispagestyle{prelim}} {\thispagestyle{empty}} {} {} To suppress numbering and make the title page not be taken into account for numbering of subsequent pages: \usepackage{etoolbox} \patchcmd{\titlepage} {\thispagestyle{prelim}} ... 4 May be this is what you want. \documentclass[11pt,paper=a4,answers]{exam} \usepackage{graphicx,lastpage} \usepackage{upgreek} \usepackage{censor} \censorruledepth=-.2ex \censorruleheight=.1ex \hyphenpenalty 10000 \usepackage[paperheight=10.5in,paperwidth=8.27in,bindingoffset=0in,left=0.8in,right=1in, top=0.7in,bottom=1in,headsep=.5\baselineskip]{geometry} ... 4 Start with this, and fill in your own text and equations. \documentclass{article} \begin{document} Here is a numbered equation $$y = mx + b$$ In a new paragraph, here is an unnumbered equation \[ y = Ax^2 + bx + c$ If you want the equation inline, then this $y = mx + b$ should suffice. \end{document}
