Re: User help document

Oh. :oops: Hmm, weird. And it's only that one file that's being opened by the Gimp? You have actually tried opening PDFs created in other Kile projects and they open ok in Evince? And it's definitely a PDF file you're creating? Well, I have to admit that I'm stumped! I'm sorry I can't be of any real...

running 'bibtex -min-crossrefs=NUMBER' doesn't affect x-refs

Hi, I don't want to rely on \nocites in order to get cross-references that are only referred to once into the bibliography because if I remove the citation doing the cross-referencing, I might not remember to take out the \nocite, even if I do place the \nocite immediately after the \cite. So, I tho...

User bibtex styles - where do they go?

Hi, I originally posted this problem in the Kile forum , because it seemed to be a problem with the way Kile worked originally, but now I think it might be related to the Latex distribution itself. I've got TexLive on Ubuntu and editing with Kile. The problem is this: I have a texmf directory set up...

Re: User help document

Do all your PDF files open with the Gimp or just ones made in Latex? If all of them, you should check your settings for what application opens PDF files in Ubuntu (don't ask me how to do that - I'm not an Ubuntu expert at all!). If only the ones made with Latex, how are you opening the file? Is it v...

Re: harvard bsu style

I confess I have not got this to work yet, either. I have learned a lot more about Latex on Ubuntu (8.10) since that first post (I am using texlive), and now I have a texmf directory set up in my home area that I put .sty files that my package managers can't download for whatever reason in. The file...

Re: n.d. (no date) using natbib with apalike

Just leave the year field blank, then the `no date' will be formatted according to your style file, for example, Harvard's apsr gives `N.d.' and agsm gives `n.d.'; apalike should do whatever the APA specifies.

  1. year = {},

Re: Specific question for harvard-style citing

Try investigating the natbib package - I'm sure the documentation mentions something about that sort of thing. You can still specify the harvard styles with natbib.

Re: Top border on table does not appear in pdf

Might I recommend the booktabs package, which defines some nice-looking lines to use with tables? There is also some good advice in the manual about the formatting of tables in documents.

You can use the multicol and multirow packages to merge cells.

Re: How to get "“>”"

There's also some information about it in the Comprehensive Latex Symbols document, which is an incredibly useful document.

Re: How do I find a package / help on how to use a package?

You could perhaps email the maintainer of that package. There is an email address in the readme file (at the bottom of the page you linked to).
