How can I reduce my code? Topic is solved

TikZ cannot automatically detect when a line is behind some area. The area is not even drawn. You have to decide what you make dashed for a simulated background appearance. Anyway, just for better reading and for doing it in a simple loop, you could also write \foreach \point/\style in {A/thick, B/t...

For example:

Database, List, References

Welcome to the forum!

Perhaps show what you tried. Besides BibTeX, you could use biblatex.

page number Topic is solved

The class file ni.cls sets the page style to "empty" when a chapter starts. You can change it this way, adding this to your preamble in thesis.tex: \usepackage{etoolbox} \makeatletter \patchcmd{\@makechapterhead}{empty}{plain}{}{} \makeatother To reset the settings that the class makes at ...

page number Topic is solved

Welcome to the forum!

Indeed, for being able to help we need to see code. As minimum, the .cls file and the preamble of the .tex file with the settings.

How can I reduce my code? Topic is solved

Hi, even simpler: \foreach \i in {1,...,10} \coordinate (\Alph{\i}) at ($(O) + (\i*36:{\R})$); That of course requires a macro \Alph to turn numbers into letters. There is one internal macro, that could be used that way if you would add to the document preamble: \make...

Error after TeX Live update

Hi!

This looks like a bug. It works with my TeX Live 2017 installation. Perhaps run an update, at least update the isodate package, or compile without isodate.

Academic Title Page: minipage Topic is solved

Hi Esther,

welcome to the forum!

Problem with large table in landscape mode Topic is solved

Well, output: I generally don't like a full grid for tables, locking all in cells. I like some supporting structure by decent horizontal lines only. I never do double lines.

Code: I would put repeated things into a macro, such as for \multicolumn{1}{>{\centering\arraybackslash}c|}{$...$}
