Getting funky with $\LaTeX$ - Vol. 3

This will be focused on the German language, so be aware that most of the formatting settings are German !

Accompanying Document

Welcome back to part 3!

\documentclass [<options>] {<Klasse>}


  • [DE]/[EN]
  • scrbook/book
  • scrreprt/report
  • scrartcl/article
  • -/letter
  • -/slide

In German there is no uniform standard for e.g. slide or letter. There are various alternatives, most important: beamer (slides) which we'll be looking into in the future.


  • Fontsize (Default: 10pt, set-to: 12pt)
  • Pagesize (Default: 8.5:11 (letter), set-to: a4paper)
  • ...
Additional Packages

The default functionality is modified and extended with additional packages. Those packages are handled in the following way:

%includes the package into the current document
\usepackage [<options>] {<Packagename>}
  • varioref (\vref, \vpageref)
  • fancyref (\fref, \fpageref)
  • cleveref


\label {<LabelName>}
\ref {<LabelName>}
\pageref {<LabelName>}

Varioref: Can replace pagereferences with relative references. "On Page 1" changes to "On the last page" if we are on page 2.

Fancyref: Works basically like Varioref, but the output is a little different. To use this package in German, add [german] to the addpackage section, as the language is not set by the documentclass for Fancyref

cleveref: Same as above, but less fancy.
