Re: Remove Section Number

Hi there, The answer to your first question is the asterisk (*). Use the asterisk everytime you want to remove the numbering in the different parts in LaTeX. Something like this: \section*{question 1} My answer to your second question might not be the best suitable, but it works. You can use the \te...

Re: Additional Files produced by "Build and View"

Hi there, You are right, the .log, .aux, and .bbx files are important. They are the files that help compile your latex code into .pdf. You can also take a look into these files to see what happened last time you compiled. For the other files: .ps, .dvi are there because you must compile your code in...

Re: Force Portrait Format...

Hi there, Have you tried the rotation option in \includegraphics ? If you enter the correct rotation angle, the figure is in portrait. Here is how: \includegraphics[angle=-90, width=0.95\textwidth]{xyz} Just thinking about another thing. Why do you compile your code in DVI format, to convert it to P...

Re: multirow | Problem with Alignment

Hi there, My solution is not the perfect one, since it is not automatic. I would say it is a bit more of a workaround than a solution. When declaring your multirow, use the fixup option. The fixup is a length used for fine tuning: The text will be raised (or lowered, if fixup is negative) by that le...

Re: Modifications to the Footer

Hi there,

Have you tried something like:

  1. \setlength{\headheight}{XXpt}


This will, as the command says, increase the head/foot height to XXpt. Don't forget to set the paper height according though.

Cheers

reduce the size of PDF output document

Hello, I have simple question, with probably a not so simple answer. I wrote a few documents (in LaTeX of course) in "report" class. I included some images (jpeg essentially), some links and the whole chabang. I compile these documents, only to notice that they are quite voluminous. I have...

Re: Figures or Pictures in Footers

Hi there,

I use the fancyhdr package. Then in the left footer (for example), you just add:

\lfoot{\includegraphics[height=2cm]{yourImageHere}}

When compiling, there might be a complaint saying that your head height is to small. Then just change that parameter to fit your image.

Cheers

Re: 'beamer.cls' not found

Have you regenerated your TeX tree's ls-R list? This list tells LaTeX where to search for included files. Try runnning 'texhash' (run it as root if you've put the file in a system path; if it's under $HOME/texmf/, you should run as yourself). Hi there, I am coming from the world of Linux, and the t...

Re: 'beamer.cls' not found

Hi there,

Just a thought, but is your beamer.cls file into a recognized folder by LaTeX??

Re: One column math formula in 2-column mode paper

Hi there,

I have not tried anything that before, therefore this is just a way to get ideas rolling.

Did you try putting your long math equation into a minipage that would spread over the two column?

Did you try getting into a one column format just for the math environment?

Cheers
