Re: addtocontentsline question -short-

Solved it, I used:

\addtocounter{section}{1}
\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{\numberline\thesection{Curriculum Vitae}}

Works like a charm.

Re: addtocontentsline question -short-

Alright, sorry.

It's a report, two-side. About 50 pages. But I just want to know what argument I should use with the \addtocontentsline command to get the chapternumber in the ToC aswell, not just the phrase 'curriculum vitae' and page number.

addtocontentsline question -short-

Ok, I'm using: \addcontentsline{toc}{section}{\numberline{}Curriculum Vitae}

cause, obviously, I have enclosed it. Now I want it to show in the ToC with the current sectionmark to (its section 3 of the appendix). How do I do that?

Re: Exact placement of contents table

Well actually that wont work that well when the ToC is getting larger than one page. I'll see what I can do about it. The tocloft package provides control over the ToC and listoffigures. Maybe this helps

Re: Exact placement of contents table

Using minipages works just fine -at least for me-. Table of contents is placed inside a minipage, no page break or layout is messed up.

Try this code:

\begin{minipage}[t]{1\textwidth}
\vspace{0pt}
\tableofcontents
\end{minipage}

Re: PS file HUGE due to background ima; Have an idea please help

wow right on the spot. That worked. 'only' 188 mb now. PDF is 6mb.

2 more questions:
1)Any other options to reduce the PS size?
2)Is there quality loss between latex=>PS=>pdf compared to latex=>pdf.
The latted one produces a larger pdf (about 10 mb).

Thanks for the wonderful help!

PS file HUGE due to background ima; Have an idea please help

Ok this is the thing: I'm using the path Latex=>PS=>PDF to be able to use Pstricks etc. Also, I'm using a sort of watermark figure as background for my pages (made with photoshop). Result is, of course, that in the processing of the PS file this figure is placed on every page. Having around 25 pages...

Re: xls=>tex

Attached the file, in case you cant find it. Its a sort of macro; gives you an extra button in Excel 'export to latex' The selected cells are converted to Tex code, including borders and alignment. Very, very useful. Its called xl2latex (attached), but you can find it on the web too. Works for me on...

Re: LaTeX => PS => PDF

I have a question: Is there any noticeable quality loss when using Latex=>PS=>PDF instead of using Latex=> PDF. Im talking about the final PDF result, not the postscript. Also, is the layout identical? I previously used Latex=> PDF, saving any figure as a PDF with photoshop. Now, for maximum compati...
