LaTeX Timetable


This is the latest version 1.41 of a LaTeX package for creating one-week timetables as they can frequently be found in universities or schools. It contains bugfixes to 1.4.

New features of this version are pdfLaTeX compatibility, and several design extensions. This package is fully interface compatible to documents created under version 1.3, and contains all amendments proposed by Daniel Bader. Like its predecessor, however, it is unfortunately incompatible to versions 1.1 and 1.2.


Please download the sources and a sample with explanations from this folder:

You can compile both with LaTeX

latex example.tex && dvips example.dvi && ps2pdf

and with pdfLaTeX

pdflatex example.tex

The package additionally contains a PDF manual with explanations and examples. Please note again that this package does not work with documents using the old syntax of versions 1.1 and 1.2 (which you might still find on the net).


The general structure of a minimal file using my package looks as follows (please refer to my example for a more detailed description):
