I know this is a very general question but I reach a point in which I need help. I need to replicate this

By now I managed to do this

but as you may notice:

  • Space between line in title is too big
  • Block below title (A, Via, De, Fecha y Referencia) needs formatting.

The rest of the text is quite similar :)

This 'template' is based on the work form Rob Oakes and after downloading it I modified the cls file adding new variables. Please check out the original template or download my modified template.

I need help to format the list above. Any advice?

    Welcome to TeX.SX! 1) use \\[-7pt] or simmilar for reducing the space of the line seperators (in the title) 2) Use a tabular for the blocks below title and a tabular inside that tabular manually broken in lines (or a p{} column or a minipage) for the broken line of "Referencia"

  • This was useful. Number 1 did it. For number 2 I'm quite confused, could you refer me to anything similar to what you proposed? I'm going to look in deep for that.

    you could just add a \begin{tabular}{p{4cm}l}{\bfseries A:}&James Smith\\{\bfseries Via:}& Something \\ ... \\ Referencia &\begin{tabular}{l}A big text here that we will break manually with this \\ and continue to next line\end{tabular}\\\end{tabular} under the title

  • Ah! it helped very much but \end{minipage} is missing. In order to keep things easy to replicate I'm thinking to avoid the use of templates and do a nice tex file instead.

Well, at last you can start with a simple article document, you do not need a complete template for that.

A simple starting point for you can be the following code:


\usepackage{graphicx}  % <============================= \includegraphics
\usepackage{showframe} % <============ visualize typing area and margins
\usepackage{lipsum}    % <=================================== dummy text

\usepackage[scaled]{helvet} % <===================== or libertine or ...
\renewcommand\familydefault{\sfdefault} % <=== Sans serif to be standard!


\noindent\includegraphics[width=2cm]{example-image-duck} \hfill \includegraphics[width=2cm]{example-image-a}


{\Huge Title}\\
{\Large second line}\\
third line


  {\bfseries A:}         & James Smith\\
  {\bfseries Via:}       & Something \\ 
  ... \\ 
  {\bfseries Referencia} & A big text here that we will break manually with this and continue to next line\\%

It gives you the result:

It seems you want to rebuild a formula for your company/institute. Because I do not know the specifications that is left for you (for example the distance between title and second title line). With package geometry you can define the margins you need etc.

But for a starting point it is good enouph I think.

  • Actually, I realized my work was a bit much. This suggestion is very helpful and I´ll do it.
