So my plan was to help a friend to write her thesis in LaTeX instead of Word. The problem is that the university want them to use their template if writing in LaTeX. I have never done something like this on before and having trouble compiling and getting the document class zip and example to both be added into the ShareLaTeX workspace.

How do I do this? It basically is two zip files where one contain example on how to structure and use it and the other one a document class. The link to the files can be found here.

  • Wellcome to the community! Your problem is about using Sharelatex or about using the documentclass for your document?

  • Could you add a minimum working example in your question? It would make answering your question easier.

  • It is my understanding that when you upload a zip there, ShareLatex immediately tries to process it. That might not always work. So if it immediately fails, try re-processing 9without re-upload). Also, be sure that you have choose the correct compiler.

1 Answer 1

  1. Load the .zip file with the example (in your case rtthesisex-exjobb.zip, don't worry if it doesn't compile at the beginning)
  2. unzip the .zip file with the .cls on your computer (in your case, rtthesis.zip)
  3. click on the symbol "Load" (see the red arrow here: enter image description here)
  4. Load all the files from the unzip of point 2. (you could select them all at once)
  5. Click on main.tex to make it appear in the code frame.
  6. Compile it.
