How to put something after preamble but before document begins ?

You can delay stuff in the preamble by enclosing it in \AtBeginDocument{}.

If that is what you really need, I cannot say, because you gave no MWE to test it with.

Remove vertical space in \parbox Topic is solved

Hi, the vertical space isn't introduced by the parbox, but by your misuse of \Large : it doesn't require a parameter, hence the line spacing is matched to \Large until the end of the \parbox . Try it like this \fbox {\parbox{8cm}{{\Large FIRST FRAME\par}\bigskip Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectet...

Hi,

perhaps you're looking for \verbatiminput{} as provided by verbatim package?

Newbie Question(s): Packages (classes?) needed for PhD thesis template

Hi there,
I'd run a simple test first, to see if it's a problem with your TeX installation.
  1. \documentclass{article}
  2. \begin{document}
  3. Hello, world!
  4. \end{document}

If that doesn't compile (and if I didn't put any error into it), it doesn't make sense to look for trouble in a template...

Please help me solve the problem !!!

I guess TeX chokes on the period in the file name and wrongly assumes ".1" as extension, even though the file name is "f1.1.pdf" (or png)---well, according to the info presented, it could be either one, or really just "f1.1". Try it with a simpler file name like "t...

fancyhdr: \chaptermark empty Topic is solved

Hi there, \chaptermark is used by \chpter to set the mark(s) for this chapter. If you call it from within \fancyhead , you're overwriting the current mark(s). Use \leftmark within \fancyhead , instead. Now, the page header on odd pages contains the chapter title (plus chapter's number & name), b...

"Can't write on file" error, but this isn't a ../ reference: why?

Can it be that in order to implement the -output-directory flag the code changes to that directory, after which the imbed of ./foo/bar becomes ../foo/bar and fails because of the limitation? Not quite. Whenever you \include something, a partial aux file is opened for writing and when you change you...

Align three supervisors text in same row Topic is solved

The first problem I did't understand. If you want spaces between your dotfills, make the \parbox es a little smaller and put \hfill between them. For your second problem, add \noindent before the first \parbox in your \Sigline definition: you've got a paragraph break before the first use of \Sigline...
