The LaTeX Header

If you want some features, you need some packages and extensions which come with LaTeX preinstalled. These are the packages which I am using:

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt,twoside]{article}
\usepackage[left=2cm,right=2cm,top=3cm,bottom=2cm,includeheadfoot]{geometry}
\usepackage{textcomp}
\usepackage{ngerman}
\usepackage{eurosym}
\usepackage[applemac]{inputenc}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}

Definitions

Definitions are rather simple as you can see here:

\def \TITLE{BIG Title}
\def \SUBTITLE{Under Title}
\def \AUTHOR{Kristian Peters}

Later you can access them via \SUBTITLE for example.

Where's the sign for Degree?

If you want the degree sign you'll have to do something tricky. Simply user \Celsius in your text.

\def \Celsius{\mathrm{^{\circ}C}}

A simple way for a good looking math-mode?

I do not like the standard way mathematic formulas look like. So I redifed the math-mode a little. Simply use \M{formula}.

\newcommand{\M}[1]{$\mathrm{#1}$}

Headings and Keywords

If you only want a little heading and some keywords which do not take so much space, you can make use of these:

% Heading
\newcommand{\HEADING}[1]{\vspace{1pt}\paragraph*{#1}\ \\}

% Keywords
\newcommand{\SP}[1]{\makebox[\textwidth][t]{\begin{tabular}{p{0.2cm} p{16cm}}\hfill$\mathrm{\bullet}$ & #1\end{tabular}}}
\newcommand{\SSP}[1]{\makebox[\textwidth][t]{\begin{tabular}{p{0.95cm} p{15.25cm}}\hfill$\mathrm{\circ}$ & #1\end{tabular}}}
\newcommand{\SSSP}[1]{\makebox[\textwidth][t]{\begin{tabular}{p{1.325cm} p{14.885cm}}\hfill$\mathrm{\cdot}$ & #1\end{tabular}}}

% Enumeration
\newcommand{\AP}[2]{\makebox[\textwidth][t]{\begin{tabular}{p{0.2cm} p{16cm}}\hfill#1. & #2\end{tabular}}}
\newcommand{\AAP}[2]{\makebox[\textwidth][t]{\begin{tabular}{p{0.95cm} p{15.25cm}}\hfill#1. & #2\end{tabular}}}
\newcommand{\AAAP}[2]{\makebox[\textwidth][t]{\begin{tabular}{p{1.325cm} p{14.885cm}}\hfill#1. & #2\end{tabular}}}

You can access them as follows:

\vspace{7pt}\subsubsection{Stichpunkte}
\SP{Stichpunkt 1. Grades}
\SSP{Stichpunkt 2. Grades}
\SSSP{Stichpunkt 3. Grades}

Tricks with Pics

Inserting pictures is always a bit pedestrian, so I've written a little makro that automatically adds a figure text. There are also makros for 2 or 3 pictures at once. (Note: The lines at the html-code have linebreaks. For best achievements you better should use the samples from the whole template file.)

% one picture
\newcommand{\PIC}[3]{\begin{figure}[!h]\begin{center}\includegraphics[width=#1]{#2}
\caption{#3}\end{center}\end{figure}}

% two pictures in a row
\newcommand{\PPIC}[4]{\begin{figure}[!h]\begin{minipage}{0.5\textwidth}
\begin{center}\includegraphics[width=7.5cm]{#1}\caption{#2}\end{center}
\end{minipage}\hfill\begin{minipage}{0.5\textwidth}\begin{center}
\includegraphics[width=7.5cm]{#3}\caption{#4}\end{center}\end{minipage}
\hfill\end{figure}}

% three pictures in a row
\newcommand{\PPPIC}[6]{\begin{figure}[!h]\begin{minipage}{0.33\textwidth}
\begin{center}\includegraphics[width=5cm]{#1}\caption{#2}\end{center}
\end{minipage}\hfill\begin{minipage}{0.33\textwidth}\begin{center}
\includegraphics[width=5cm]{#3}\caption{#4}\end{center}\end{minipage}
\hfill\begin{minipage}{0.33\textwidth}\begin{center}
\includegraphics[width=5cm]{#5}\caption{#6}\end{center}\end{minipage}
\hfill\end{figure}}

And in the text, you can access them as follows:

\vspace{7pt}\subsubsection{Bilder}
\PIC{13cm}{data/datei.pdf}{einfaches Bild}

\PPIC{data/Liriodendron_tulipifera.jpg}{zweifaches Bild 1}
{data/Michaelia_champac_1.jpg}{zweifaches Bild 2}

\PPPIC{data/Liriodendron_tulipifera.jpg}{dreifaches Bild 1}
{data/Michaelia_champac_1.jpg}{dreifaches Bild 2}
{data/Michaelia_champac_2.jpg}{dreifaches Bild 3}

There are also other things that are not so interesting like page numbering and so on... But you can download the whole template here.
