# How do you start out each document? [duplicate]

As in, do you have a .tex file from which you begin every document? This hypothetical file would contain most of the things you use in each document on a regular basis. For example, here's my "template".

\documentclass[10pt,letterpaper]{article}       % Basics
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}                     % Inputs
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}                        % Inputs
\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}               % 1 inch margins
pdftitle={title},
pdfproducer={LaTeX with hyperref},
\hypersetup{
citecolor=black,
filecolor=black,
urlcolor=black,                     % End setup
pdfpagemode=UseNone                 % Disables bookmarks sidebar auto appearing
}

\title{title}
\author{author}
\date{\today}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
Insert body here.
\end{document}

I get the feeling that I'm missing some essential packages, but that's what I use to start out each document I make.
