Legrand-orange-book Chapter Images Title Box Opacity Problem

Postby MaverickVG » Fri Dec 08, 2017 1:07 pm

Hello,
I have a strange problem using the legrand-orange-book for my dissertation.
Sometimes, the chapter title box in front of the chapter images is filled completely - its opacity value is ignored (the box should be half-transparent). This happens in 95% of the compilations - but SOMETIMES - everything is fine but I do not change anything.
I used the template provided by overleaf.

Has anyone an idea? I already think about saving those pages if they compile well and merge them later into the final PDF.. but thats not the way it should work.

Thank you very much for your replies!

Hi,

did you solve your problem?

I admit I did not search on Overleaf for a version of that template (changed or not, from the original), and there was no code here to reproduce a problem that sometimes is that way or the other... Let us know (with code) if you still work on that issue and would like to have us to check it.

Hi,

I did not solve it, but I guess I figuered out a problem.

My default settings in Overleaf for the LaTeX Engine was "choose automatically". So I think Overleaf sometimes changes the engine (maybe due to workload balancing) and this error then occures. When selecting XeLaTeX, no error occures and everything works well.

Hopefully this can help!

Good to know! Yes, a change can occur. But this should depend on the code, not on workload. Overleaf detects which engine to use, that's pdfLaTeX by default. It would switch to XeLaTeX if it sees that fontspec is used, or to LuaLaTeX if it notices that the document uses \directlua etc. I don't have the details though, that's just for example.
