extra packages

Postby Fundbuero » Thu Apr 30, 2015 10:18 am


first of all I was searching the board before I wrote this.
I have a package with some "extras" from the university and I want to know how to tell tex to use them. To give an example, I want to create a document with a different document class ( \documentclass{extra} ) but I do not know how to tell the programme to use the file I want to use.

Hope you understand my problem

Thank you for your help and greetings

Hi and welcome,

if you say \documentclass{extra}, LaTeX will include file extra.cls, if it can be found. Easiest way would be to place the files in you project directory.

Without more information, it is hard to give any more advice.

By the way, one really great resource for starters is LaTeX for complete novices.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
