  1. Sunil…great website! Thanks for the clear explanations and the template.

    What programs did you use for your figures as yours look amazing! Also are the hyperlinks in the Table of Contents built into the thesis.cls file or .tex file?

    1. You’re welcome, thank you for the compliments! A lot of the drawings were done in Office for Mac 2004 and exported to PDF (graphs in Excel, illustrations in Word). The 3D figures were done using Blender and I’m not sure if I could face doing those again. The Table of Contents are automatically generated from the thesis.tex and Chapter files. You can read more about better images for LaTeX here.

  2. Hi Sunil,

    Thanks for sharing your template! So generous of you!
    Can you please tell me how you’re able to make author name colour on the title page?

    Cheers,

    1. Hello Brett,

      I think this is done by the hyperref package, which will colour hyperlinks. This is configurable and the documentation is only a search away. I think email link blue is slightly different to web page link blue and inter-document links are different again.

  4. Hi, Sunil!

    I want to thank you so much for sharing your thesis latex template!
    I will use it to write my own phd thesis in anthropology and it’s the most useful and
    functional template I’ve found over the Net for a newbie of LaTex!

    Cheers from Italy,
    Chiara

    1. Hello Chiara,

      Thank you for your kind comments about the LaTeX Thesis Template. I’m so glad you have found it useful and easy to use – that’s exactly what it’s meant to be! I hope your PhD thesis write-up goes well.

  5. Thanks for your template. I am currently using it to write my thesis. Please what software package did you use for the graphics in your own thesis writeup sample posted on this page

    Reply

    1. Hello, I used Microsoft Word for the 2-D diagrams and I used the open source software, Blender, for the 3-D rendered diagrams. These were both on the Mac and Office for Mac can save drawing art directly as PDF, which is why the diagrams look so clean and crisp. You can read more about it in the “LaTeX on a Mac” section of this site.

  6. Hi. Firstly thanks for your splendid template. I downloaded the Thesis from latextemplates.com
    Now the Bibliography doesn’t work. I didn’t change anything so far.

    Thanks 🙂

  8. Please what did you use to draw the figures in your thesis. They look very very nice and I would love to do the same

    Reply

    1. Hello Ayo, for the normal 2-D figures I used Microsoft Word (it can be done!). The drawing tools and shapes worked very well for my needs. For the 3-D figures I used Blender, a free 3-D modelling and ray-tracing tool.
