Internal Info

Also available are:
  • A bundle for TextMate containing the most important commands from the template (this will also work with Sublime Text 2: copy and rename the Snippets folder to the Sublime Packages folder)
  • A color palette for the Mac ColorPicker
  • A template for a nice hardcover if your thesis is printed by Comouth

The font used in the template should be Zapf's final digital version of his Palatino Typeface which is sold by Linotype. Depending on your operating system and TeX distro you might end up using either URW's Palladio font or the Book Antigua typeface which ships with MS Office. These fonts look similar enough so you should not need to worry about that (from an ethic point of view you may want to read up on the history of Palatino, though).
If you want to include text in external media such as graphics or imported tables and your OS can only handle TrueType fonts, you can find the free Palladio typeface files in the source bundle of Ghostscript.

Editor Recommendation

by Jonathan Diehl

The following combination of software will allow you to navigate from your LaTeX source to the PDF and back:
  1. Install MacTeX
  2. Install Sublime Text 2
  3. Install Sublime Text 2 command line tool:
    ln -s "/Applications/Sublime Text 2.app/Contents/SharedSupport/bin/subl" ~/bin/subl
    If this does not work try:
    ln -s "/Applications/Sublime Text 2.app/Contents/SharedSupport/bin/subl" ~/.rvm/bin/subl
  4. Install Sublime Package Control
  5. Install LaTeX Packages from Sublime Text: CMD-SHIFT-P, "Package Control: Install Package" -> LaTeXTools)
  6. Install Skim
  7. Link Skim to Sublime Text 2: Skim Preferences, Sync, PDF-TeX support, Command: subl, Arguments: "%file":%line
  8. From Sublime Text 2 preferences, select "Settings - Default", and set "spell_check": true,
When building TeX from Sublime Text 2 (CMD-B), Skim will jump to and show your cursor position in the TeX document. When CMD-SHIFT-clicking a character in the PDF in Skim, Sublime Text 2 will jump to that position.
If the autocompletion in Sublime Text 2 does not work (for the references and citations), save all thesis files again using UTF-8 encoding.

Do not use TeXShop or TeXnicCenter. They contain broken spelling dictionaries.
