Hello,

for reading, or an outright suggestion on how to do this would be really
helpful. I have some code attached below to show what I get.

Alex.

\documentclass[12pt]{report}
\begin{document}
% auxiliary pages
\pagenumbering{roman}

\tableofcontents

\chapter*{Acknowledgements}
\newpage
\pagenumbering{arabic}
% dissertation chapters
\chapter{Introduction}

%\include{}

\end{document}

dissertation style files

Hi !

I was wondering if people here have expereince with some of the many thesis
sty files available on a google search. The two generic ones that I have
found are:

1. hepthesis: http://tinyurl.com/7ax6s
2. thesis: http://tinyurl.com/hj94t

Advice and recommendations on which ones to use would be great. My shcool
doen't support using LaTeX explicitly and so I am trying to do this on my
own.

thank you,

Alex

Re: capitalization of the first letter in a sentence

Hello,

Is it possible to detect if a macro is expanded at the beginning of a
sentence and thereby capitalize the first letter? Say I have a macro

\newcommand{\fref}[1]{figure \ref{#1}}

and a sentence begins with \fref{}. In this case how do I capitalize
the "f" in the "figure"?

thanks,
Krishna.
Hi!
Yesterday I read the documentation of varioref package, which
is a part of tools bundle.  There is a solution to your problem
there.  Load the package with \usepackage{varioref}. You should put
\labelformat{figure}{figure~#1} before
\begin{document}. You can then use the command \Vref it provides. This
automatically capitalised the first letter if the \Vref command is given

at the beginning of a sentence.  I think this will solve your problem.
You can do this for any environment. For example, after giving the
command \labelformat{equation}{eqn.~#1}, it will work with equations.
You can refer to the documentation of varioref for more details.
Best regards,
S. Venkataraman

Hi !

I was wondering if anyone has tried to create a pdf document using LaTeX
that allows readers to make comments in the pdf document. This makes things
easier for collaboration purposes with people who do not use LaTeX. I have
wondering if the document properties can be modified to allow for this while
compiling.

Thank you !

Alex

Re: tugindia Digest, Vol 42, Issue 3

Hi,
In the following url
http://www.tug.org/TeXnik/mainFAQ.cgi?file=floats/nonFloat

we get the code facilitates us to use subfigures with pagebreak.
I am not able to understand how to put label. If we put the label
in the begining of the caption, we get only figure number starting from
1 (that is subcounter) by using \ref and not the full reference number
foreg. instead of Figure 14.2 we get Figure 2.

A solution to the above problem will be highly appreciated.

Regards,
Ravi Shankar Gautam

Re: tugindia Digest, Vol 42, Issue 3

Hi,
The code that I had refered is the following. I don't know how to extract the full figure number from this code.
Kindly let me know if any body has the solution.
regards,
gautam

**************************************************************
\newcounter{mySubCounter}
\newcommand{\mySubCaption}{}
\newenvironment{myFirstSubFigure}[1] {% caption as parameter
\addtocounter{figure}{1}% increase the float figure counter
\begin{mySubFigure}{#1}%
}{%
\end{mySubFigure}%
}
\newenvironment{mySubFigure}[1] {% caption as parameter
\renewcommand\mySubCaption{#1}
\refstepcounter{mySubCounter}
}
{%
