I am submitting to a Taylor and Francis journal which uses the manuscriptcentral portal. It doesn’t accept PDF files and I have to upload the tex file and the necessary graphics files. But it fails to build.
So far I have tried 1. copying all of the sub tex files that contain individual sections, etc into one file. 2. Ensuring all macro definitions are defined in the introduction.
I suppose I could try one by one to remove packages I use, try to achieve something similar another way, and then rebuild but given it is a reasonably long and moderately complicated document this seems infeasibly slow.
The journal submission advice doesn’t address this issue.
My question: rather than my spending forever experimenting with a frustrating website I wondered if there are any known limitations of the latex build such systems use or workarounds? Do I need to, for example, include all the package files I use, or avoid particular fonts? Are some packages known to be difficult? I am hoping that someone here has been through this and can share their experience so I don’t have to resort to trying to write it in Word as they recommend (shudder!)
