*[[User:Bill Flanagan|Bill Flanagan (OpenWetWare.org at MIT)]] 14:00, 29 April 2009 (EDT) * Thanks for the continued 'material' advice. I'm still working on the changes we've discussed. No population of equipment as a new set of categories or search tags until at least 'Material' has been improved.

*'''[[User:Barry Canton|BC]] 08:57, 13 October 2007 (CDT)''': Hey Jakob, saw Papers and liked it.  However, I couldn't find evidence of it supporting export of a biblography to word or latex.  Until it gets such a feature, I expect I'll stick with [http://bibdesk.sourceforge.net/ Bibdesk].

*'''[[User:Reshma P. Shetty|Reshma]] 12:23, 7 September 2007 (EDT)''': Hey Jasu, I think your statistics portal is really useful. On a whim, I decided to try out a redesign of the page.  Basically, I tried to

*#change the layout so that you don't have to scroll down in order to see the useful information.
+
-
*#change the colors to be more like OWW colors
+
-
*#use more wiki code and less html to make it more amenable to editing
+
-
What do you think?  Please feel free to change it back if you don't like it.  Also, another idea is to [[Help:Renaming pages|move the page]] to [[Statistics]] ... the shorter name might be easier to type and remember?  Anyway, let me know what you think.

* I like the layout suggestion that you made. You have a good point with the content being accessible w/o scrolling. Made some small changes, e.g. reduced OWW graphic to make it flush w the table below, removed blue bg from below the 3D Gaussian - didn't go well w the red, and enlarged the graphic slightly. I also think the cell classes have slightly too little cellpadding. Looks a bit crowded. Tried to override it, but that didn't work w/o taking away the class. Statistics portal to Statistics sounds good. Simpler is better. We could do w some more content ;-) There are some suggestions in the discussion which I couldn't integrate, yet.

I think we can do the same for protocols as well if this gets moving.

Wow, this is really neat.  Perhaps we can put a spotlight on it soon and ask others for help as well.  Thanks for all your efforts in putting this stuff up here.  If you are interested, you should consider joining the [[OpenWetWare:Steering committee|Steering Committee]] as well if you are interested in participating in discussions on where OWW should be going in the future.

Hi Jakob,

Thanks for working on that thesis template, it's a great help to me at the moment. However, I'm running through the same difficulties you seemed to be having with the glossary. You said you'd found a way to deal with it. Could you explain to me how you did it please? Thanks in advance.

Hi, Thanks for your message, although I'm not sure my level is good enough to follow your explanations. I guess I'll just procrastinate a little longer before I seriously try to see how that glossary works.
 +
One more question though: the roman numbering starts at the begining of the document (pages i and ii) but simply disappears on the front matter pages (abstract, dedication, acknowledgement) and re-appears on the List of Content (page iii). Any idea how to have the numbers on front matter pages?
 +
Thanks in advance.
 +
PS: just a little correction, on the Abstract page, \end{abstractlongs} should be \end{abstractslong}
-
ps.  I noticed that you are pretty adept at wiki-ing.  Keep up the good work.  It's nice to see people really helping out the community pages!

==PhDTemplate and chinese characters==
 +
Hi, I was wondering whether you had an idea on how I could use chinese characters in the template. I tried several things but it all boils down to using XeLatex which won't work with the template or using inputenc which somehow doesn't seem to be used by the template. Any way around this? Thanks in advance. - [[User:Louis_Drounau|Louis]]

Ok. Although my question was more about the parameters of the template: I found lots of way to use Chinese characters in latex files but they don't seem to work with the template...

==PhDTemplate - BibTeX Errors==
 +
I found a typo in the Template:
 +
when wanting to create the bibliography i always got a bibtex error (bibtex finished with exit code 2) - until i found out that the line "\bibliographystyle{Latex/Classes/PhDbiblio-url2}" actually links to a file that does not exist - at least not named like that.
 +
But there is a CUEDbiblio-url2 - and after renaming that it worked. Same for the other PhDbiblio-xy.
 +
 
 +
Afterwards i got the error "package natbib error: Bibliography not compatible with author-year citations" - which can be solved by editing the Latex/Classes/PhDthesisPSnPDF.cls - line "\usepackage[round, sort, numbers, authoryear ]{natbib}" - deleting the authoryear got it working.

Hey Jakob. Another year, another thesis and apparently I just can't do without this template! Now, I've found a new dilemma for you: I'm asked to write in French this time and I need to make a few adjustments to the template. In the chapters, I'm keeping it easy by write \'e instead of é, for example, and it works fine. But I also need to change the structure, words like "glossary" or parts like "a thesis submitted...". I found where to do that (PhDthesisPSnPDF.cls) but as soon as I get an accent in there, the whole thing stops working. Any thoughts? [[User:Louis Drounau|Louis]]

I just added your nice icons to the [[Protocols/Consensus template | protocol template]] so that one could see if people make use of it or prefer to omit them.

Hello Jakob,
 +
Thanks for the PhD template that you uploaded. Being new to LaTeX, I don't know if it is possible to use a .bib library file exported from a PDF organizer program called Papers (by Mekentosj). Have you encountered this before?
 +
I tried replacing the contents of the references.bib file you had in your template with those exported from Papers. I changed the citations and all but the changes don't reflect in the References page.
 +
Thanks a lot and any help would be greatly appreciated!

* Hi Angelo, this should be possible. I, personally, haven't used Papers this way but I'm aware of the BibTex export function. Instead I used BibDesk since Papers wasn't sufficiently well developed at this point. So, unfortunately, I can only tell you that it should work in principle. You would need to exchange the .bib file and the references to the bib file in the text itself. Then, after re-compilation, you should see the changes. Sorry, don't have time to go into more detail. Ask friends from computer sciences or physics at your uni. Saludos, --[[User:Jakob Suckale|- JS]] 09:29, 22 September 2011 (EDT)
