Complete LyX Templates Overhaul.


Those of you who have been following my blog from the start may recall that I created a couple of LyX templates to be used for educational and practical purposes. Well now I have added two more templates to the collection as well as some major changes to existing ones to better suit the needs of you, the readers.

Mathematics Majors in co-op at the University of Waterloo may want to take advantage of the Mathematics Work Template as I have specifically made it to adhere to the work report structure specified here.

You can get a copy in the Resources section of my blog and included in the section is a link to the old version of the templates for anyone who doesn’t prefer the current ones.

To see  a full list of changes, please see the changelog below:

  • “Contents” is now labeled “Table of Contents”

  • Removed the pesky URL boxes that appear when the PDF is compiled
  • Created custom colours for URL and other linking text via the hyperref package
