like the title already says, I´m looking for a possibility to create own document templates containing all the relevant document class, package and formatting information. Since I´m often using the same or very similar preambles, it would be much easier to just select a template instead of typing everything or copying the preamble from an existing document everytime I want to create a new one.

Is there any possibility to do that? I am using Texmaker as editor.

Thanks a lot in advance. :)

  • you mean like adding a custom template to TeXmaker? – naphaneal Jul 9 '16 at 16:30
  • Texmaker don't have template (in usual sense) but you can go to menu: User->User tags->Edit user tags. – touhami Jul 9 '16 at 16:53

If you were to switch from TeXmaker to TeXstudio, you could create your own templates.

Create and save a new .tex-file, enter all your needed packages, formats, etc. and then goto File -> Make Template to add license information.

Once this is finished, you can select your template from the menu via File -> New from template -> User.

Else, you could add a template by putting it inside the config-folder of TeXstudio: \texstudio\templates\user

  • Ok, seems like switching the GUI is the only opportunity for now to create real templates. Since I´m already used to and very happy with the functionality of Texmaker, I´d prefer to stay with Texmaker. I guess, I´m going to create a .tex file containing all the relevant information and use them whenever I create a new document. Like the answer in the linked question above mentions. :D Thanks for your answers, anyway. :) – WiWiStudent Jul 10 '16 at 11:20
