It's most easy with the titling package and its maketitlehookxcommands that allow for inserting supplementary material for the \maketitle command. Here is an example: \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,twoside]{report} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[osf]{garamondx} \usepackage[showframe, nomarginpar]{geometry} ...

Well, the simplest way to do this is \date{} which will use an empty date. But there will be an extra space. I don't have your style file, so I'll use article as an example. To find the definition of \maketitle, you could either execute \show\maketitle from an interactive TeX run, or you could look it up in the style file. (The latter is probably better ...

\textsc is not related to the issue. The mark is uppercased using \makeUppercse. the textcase package has an option to redefine this command to make it equal to is \MakeTextUppercase command which automatically skips math mode. So adding \usepackage[overload]{textcase} keeps all math in the heading lowercase

There is no requirement that \includegraphics is in a figure environment, which is for including floating objects (including pictures) with their caption. For your problem, use the titling package that allows customizing the \maketitle command adding items where needed. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{titling} % set up \maketitle ...

You can include the company logo as part of the title in your style file. Here's an example: \documentclass{scrartcl} \usepackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents*}{company_style.sty} \ProvidesPackage{company_style} \RequirePackage{graphicx} \let\oldtitle\title \renewcommand{\title}[1]{\oldtitle{% Company XYZ \\[\bigskipamount] ...

Hmm an "interesting" set of macros:-) Assuming you don't want to get into discussions about changing your institution's template you could do \documentclass[11pt, a4paper, UKenglish]{article} \usepackage[UKenglish]{babel} \usepackage{MA_Titlepage} \authornew{X Y} \geburtsdatum{1st April 1900} \geburtsort{New York, U.S.A.} \date{\today} ...

Since the image is scaled so that it covers the entire page, then all that is required is the width and the height of the paper to set the shift and the scale transformations. This could be done using the shift, x and y keys but I have defined a custom page cs coordinate system so that it is possible to use coordinates like (1,1) in the usual way: ...

I received two great answers to my question and ended using parts of both of them, which is why I thought a complete cover page template in which people just insert their background image and title information might be helpful: \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \usepackage[svgnames]{xcolor} \usepackage{tikz} \begin{document} \tikzset{page cs/.cd, x/.store ...

I am the last one to discourage you using tcolorbox, but for this I would use TikZ directly: \documentclass[a4paper]{report} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{shapes} \begin{document} \thispagestyle{empty} \vspace*{3cm} \begin{center} \tikz[scale=4.5,transform shape] \node[ellipse,line width=1pt, align=center, font=\bfseries, ...

The command \null\vfil seems to be wrong there, but the template looks a little bit weird, in my point of view. (See What is \null and when do we need to use it? on \null please) Instead of directly editing the template (well, one should do that anyway) a quick solution is to patch out the \null\vfil command using \patchcmd from etoolbox package. ...

Use a font switch \bfseries rather than a macro \textbf and \normalfont rather than \normaltext (which doesn't exist).

You can add it directly to the \author: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{graphicx} \begin{document} \title{A very important paper} \author{A. Uthor\\[2ex] \includegraphics[width=3in]{example-image}\\[1ex] \small This is my title picture } \date{38 July 2014} \maketitle \end{document}

This is probably not the most efficient method but I understand it ;). The following image shows the adjusted placement together with a line of small, red circles which I used to figure out the placement. Obviously you'd delete the circles before use. I've switched to a larger font with less scaling since the default fonts differ according the their size ...

You should use the abstract environment instead of \abstract{...}like \begin{abstract} Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enimad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit ...

Here are two possibilities, both of which entail placing two images within the argument of a single \titlepic invocation. \documentclass[titlepage]{article} \usepackage[tt]{titlepic} \usepackage{graphicx} \title{Title} \author{X} \date{} \titlepic{\includegraphics [width=4cm]{example-image-a} \includegraphics [width=4cm]{example-image-b}} \begin{document} ...

I am not sure about the real question, but this provides a \section* style heading for the custom \listofsom command. \listof... usually use a \chapter* command when used in conjunction with the book.cls (or scrbook.cls). Using xpatch package and its \xpatchcmd it's easy to replace the \chapter* command in the definition of \listof... by section*. ...

As you indicated you have no clue where your \maketitle is defined. Lets take TeX to find out the definition: Replace \maketitle % Use the \author, \title and \date info with \meaning\maketitle This line will give you the definition of \maketitle currently in effect. Chances are high that this will result in some bookkeeping operations and ...

[To get this answered] The document class does not define \alsoaffiliation. When submitting to a journal you should stick to the tools they provide. If you need something they don't provide, ask the editorial office. In the end they will do the final typesetting so it is best to do a minimum of modification of such classes.

You can load the titlesec package and change the way sections are typeset when starting your appendices through the command \titleformat{\section}[display] {\normalfont\Large\bfseries}{\appendixname\enspace\thesection}{.5em}{} MWE: \documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article} \usepackage{titlesec} \usepackage{lipsum} %just for the example ...

By default, \and is set to insert a line-break (and vertically skip 1em... technically \\[1em]) within \institute. To that end, define your own \samelineand that doesn't insert this vertical skip: \documentclass{beamer} \useoutertheme{infolines} \title{Title} \author{Me\inst{1} \and Someone\inst{2} \and Someone else\inst{3}} \institute[short]{\inst{1} ...

There are much better ways to do this, but if time is of the essence and you don't really care about most details... \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \begin{center} \thispagestyle{empty} \parskip=14pt% \vspace*{3\parskip}% **(Title of the Thesis)** Thesis Submited in partial fulfilment of the requirements of BITS C421T/42T Thesis By (Author) ...

Since titlepage option is given to article class, the abstract environment uses a titlepage internally, thus the page numbers are reset. In order to correct, the resetting of page numbers has to be patched out as well as the call to \endtitlepage in the \endabstract command, being replaced by a \clearpage. I did not address other issues with the original ...
