I am using a Master/Doctoral Thesis from https://www.latextemplates.com. I have got a very simpel problem which is undefined control sequence \tabhead! Can anybody help me to overcome that?

I will be very pleased.

Best, Pouya

    Neither the documentclass you use nor any of the packages you load defines the command \tabhead which is why you end up with the error message. What do you expect \tabhead to do/result in? Did you read about this command somewhere? If so, where?

From the website that you mention, download and unpack thesis_1.zip. In the file Chapters/Chapter1.tex, near the top, you will find the following lines:

% Define some commands to keep the formatting separated from the content 

This means: if you want to use the command \tabhead in your document, add a line like the one above to your preamble:
