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 ...

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: ...

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 ...

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} ...

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. ...

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 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 ...

Some of the things you want are non-standard in beamer. But you can always take the existing beamer templates as starting point and tweak the according to your needs \documentclass[xcolor=x11names,compress]{beamer} \usetheme{Darmstadt} \useoutertheme[subsection=false,footline=authortitle]{miniframes} \usefonttheme{serif} \usepackage{palatino} ...

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 ...

(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 ...

Edit: See the better version at the end of this answer. Just use \renewcommand{\thechapter}{\Alph{chapter}} after \backmatter. But in my point of view, \backmatter is of no use here. \documentclass[11pt,fleqn]{book} \usepackage[top=3cm,bottom=3cm,left=3.2cm,right=3.2cm,headsep=10pt,a4paper]{geometry} \usepackage{lipsum, fancyhdr} ...

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: ...

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 ...

I'm an author of AwesomeCV. You can find \stackoverflow{SO-id}{SO-name} on LaTeX template. Use this command with two variables(SO-id, SO-name) to display your stackoverflow icon and url.

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 ...

Here's a tcolorbox version with automatic linking to the chapters.

The error you are getting is indicative of an incompatibility between fontspec and the expl3 packages, which can be caused by your TeX distribution not being fully up-to-date. See this answer for details on how to do that: How do I update my TeX distribution? But looking more carefully at the log file, there are other issues that you should deal with. ...

My answer is yes, but you'll have to do a lot of learning. Here are some places to start you off: See here on how to write a hebrew book in 2 columns. The black chapter markers are called Thumb-indexes and you can make them using fancyhdr package, info here. A bit more info about typesetting in hebrew

If you really want to save time as a novice, you might want to fill this table online using the Table Editor by Peder Skeidsvoll. It looks like your table had been created in MS Word. There are many converters that work upon copied tables, but the way MS Word treats copied text is incompatible with them. Luckily, the copy function in MS Excel or OO/LO Calc ...

Here's another solution with similar result but with mostly other methods. Hopefully, both solutions are useful for anyone constructing a new theme. Also, I used \begin{frame}[plain]\titlepage\end{frame} to get rid of the headline from the title page. The result: %beamerthemetexsx.sty \mode<presentation> % Requirement \RequirePackage{tikz} ...

The problem in your example is caused by the class option balancelastpage. This option causes the columns on the last page to be balanced, i.e. have the same height. If you go to Document --> Settings --> Document class, and change balancelastpage to nobalancelastpage, you'll get a different result.

Quotes in biblatex use the styles set by csquotes if this package is loaded. According to those with crystal balls you are using cleanthesis.sty. One indication that you are indeed using this is the unusual backend=\cthesis@bibsys option passed to biblatex. A more standard way to write such things would be to use a \PassOptionstoClass command in the style ...

Assuming that you are using this class: https://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/nature The comments make clear that images should not be included inline: %% The \includegraphics command is ignored since Nature wants figures %% as separate files.

When compiling with pdflatex the option dvips does make trouble, no matter if it is given globally, or as a package option to color or hyperref. Rule of thumb: Don't set drivers manually, packages can choose on their own which driver to use.
