I'm currently trying to setup a template like from Siarhei Khirevich's site. The person responsible for setting up the site has done a great job of giving advice on how to set up your template, but basically I am very new to latex. And I am struggling with it. Could anyone here advise me on how to set up my template to resemble something like this photo?

Any input appreciated

MWE from comment:

{\textendash={400,400}, % en-dash, add more space around it
"28={ ,150}, % left bracket, add space from right
"29={150, }, % right bracket, add space from left
\textquotedblleft={ ,150}, % left quotation mark, space from right
\textquotedblright={150, }} % right quotation mark, space from left

\SetExtraKerning[unit=space]
{encoding={*}, family={qhv}, series={b}, size={large,Large}}
{1={-200,-200},

  • But please use the BCOR (binding correction) option of typearea instead of the code used to shift the text around. – Juri Robl Feb 2 '15 at 16:44

  • As you can see, im very new to this, I completed some good reports using latex during the year but this is alot bigger but I'd like to give it a go. I've tried adding in bits from the website above but I keep getting errors – Dec Feb 2 '15 at 21:25
  • Ok thanks for the patience Kurt, after a few hours of chopping and changing I have come up with the above. – Dec Feb 3 '15 at 1:04

    Please note that the site has a one question per question, zero new question per comment policy. Right now, your code cannot be compiled as it lacks a class. Please test your code before posting it. Also, nobody can compile it since it requires a bunch of files on your computer. – cfr Feb 3 '15 at 1:20

Rule of thumb, load as many packages as needed, but as few as possible.

The following uses standard KOMA-book including a font package for another font, mathtools for some amsmath fixes and biblatex for citing. This should be all you need right now.

Further packages you should keep in the back of your head:

  • chemformula for chemistry
  • siunitx for typesetting units
  • babel for right localization and hyphenation
  • booktabs to generate nice tables after having read the doc ... some more, depending on what you want to do

We need a page, chapter and section headings and a header. A bit of math and some fonts. All this can be found in any introduction to LaTeX.

\documentclass[fleqn,chapterprefix=true,headsepline]{scrbook}
\usepackage{scrlayer-scrpage}%header
\clearpairofpagestyles
\cehead{\leftmark}
\cohead{\rightmark}
\ohead*{\pagemark}
\addtokomafont{pagehead}{\upshape}
\usepackage{libertine}%text font
\usepackage[libertine]{newtxmath}%a bit matching math
\usepackage{mathtools}%nice math
\usepackage[style=authoryear]{biblatex}%citing 
\usepackage{blindtext}%dummy text
\addbibresource{biblatex-examples.bib}
\begin{document}
\chapter{Sarah is crazy}
\blindtext 
\begin{equation}
    \gamma = \frac{1}{\tau} = \frac{D_\text{eff}}{D_\text{m}}
\end{equation}
as defined by someone different than Frank\footfullcite{companion}

\blindtext[8]
\blinddocument
\end{document}

Many more information can be found in the documentation to the base class scrguien and the corresponding packages.
