letters and logos

Postby ddenton » Tue May 15, 2007 10:26 pm

Why is it that the shortest and simplest documents are the hardest to do in Latex?

I have a logo that I want at the top of the first page of the letter. I want to the logo to occupy a band about 7 in wide across the top of the page. I have tried all kinds of letter styles and have not found one that I can make work for this, including akletter, scrlttr2 for Koma etc. Most of the styles out there seem to want to put the logo in one corner of the page. I want it to go right across the top.

Anyone know how to do this?

Try the 'lettre' class, which has the possibility to define logos in its headings. The documentation (in french) has some examples and you can change many default parameters for the layout.

here a minimum example with the KOMA-Script scrlttr2 class:
  1. \documentclass[demo,english]{scrlttr2}
  2. \usepackage{babel,blindtext,graphicx}
  3. \begin{document}
  4. \KOMAoptions{fromlogo=true}
  5. \setkomavar{fromname}{Me}
  6. \setkomavar{fromaddress}{Here}
  7. \setkomavar{fromlogo}{\includegraphics[width=5in,height=1cm]{foo}}
  8. \firsthead{\centering\usekomavar{fromlogo}}
  9. \begin{letter}{You\\There}
  10. \opening{Cheers,}
  11. \blindtext
  12. \closing{cu}
  13. \end{letter}
  14. \end{document}
Listen to me children of the night, beyond the doors of darkness you will find
a thousand worlds for you to see here, take my hand and follow me...
