I'm struggling actually with an article to send to Springer. They ask me to use SVMult class. In my case I use \documentclass{SVMult} unsuccesfully. It is impossible to send or even continue writing my document. It's bugging. MikTeX says this:

"! LaTeX Error: File `SVMult.cls' not found. Type X to quit or to proceed, or enter new name. (Default extension: cls) Enter file name"

I've tried to see if there is a package named SVMUlt but there is none.

How to install and use SVMult?

  • You have to download svmult.cls from Springer.

  • ...here's a link and you might want to match the case of the name of the actual cls file (svmult.cls).

  • I attempt to run the svmult.cls contained into this link. But results are the following: ("C:/Users/Achille/Desktop/MAF conference/mult/styles/svmult.cls" ! Undefined control sequence. l.21 \NeedsTeXFormat {LaTeX2e}[1995/12/01] ? No way impossible to go further. Commented Jan 9, 2014 at 16:26

SVMult is made by the german Springer Verlag. See their official FTP repository at ftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/tex/latex/: There are two directories svmult and the newer one svmult1. I think the latest svmult.cls from 2007 can be found at svmultt1/styles/svmult.cls.
