I am new to LaTeX and trying to write my first paper with it. I need help on the title page. I want something that says

                               Initial Planning Report

                         Author 1 Author 2 Author 3 Author 4

                                       Class:

                                       Professor:

                                       Date:

I am able to make the 4 authors and the title. But when I try to add centered text under the authors' names, it only puts it under the 4th authors name. And also, is there a way I could have the authors be aligned vertically instead of horizontally?

You may use the titlepage environment.

\documentclass[12pt]{report}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{amsmath,amsthm}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage[charter]{mathdesign}
%-----------------------------------------------------------------
\begin{document}
% ----------------------------------------------------------------
\begin{titlepage}
\begin{center}
 {\Huge\bfseries Initial Planning Report\\}
 % ----------------------------------------------------------------
 \vspace{2cm}
 {\Large\bfseries Author -- 1}\\[5pt]
 [email protected]\\[14pt]
 {\Large\bfseries Author -- 2}\\[5pt]
 [email protected]\\[14pt]
 {\Large\bfseries Author -- 3}\\[5pt]
 [email protected]\\[14pt]
 {\Large\bfseries Author -- 4}\\[5pt]
 [email protected]\\[14pt]
 % ----------------------------------------------------------------
 \vspace{2cm}
 % ----------------------------------------------------------------
 \begin{list}{}{
        \setlength{\leftmargin}{1.5in}
        \setlength{\labelwidth}{0pt}
        \setlength{\labelsep}{1in}
            \setlength{\itemsep}{15pt}}
            \raggedright
    \item[\hbox to 0pt{\Large\bfseries Class:}]      {}
        \item[\hbox to 0pt{\Large\bfseries Professor:}]      {}
        \item[\hbox to 0pt{\Large\bfseries Date:}]      {}
 \end{list}
\end{center}
\end{titlepage}
% ----------------------------------------------------------------
\end{document}
% ----------------------------------------------------------------

  • How would I get those last pieces of information such as Class, Professor, and date to center? Feb 27, 2012 at 22:37
  • @GregHarrington you can adjust the left margin in \setlength{\leftmargin}{1.5in} suitably.
