HOW TO BUILD ejpecp.cls

  • pdflatex ejpecp.ins produces ejpecp.cls
  • pdflatex ejpecp.dtx produces ejpecp.pdf



ejpecp is a document class designed to be used with a pdflatex engine. ejpecp relies on the following packages: amsmath, amsfonts, amssymb, amsthm, bera, dsfont, hyperref, geometry, graphicx, latexsym, mathtools, microtype, afterpackage. It was also successfully tested with the next generation engine lualatex.


  • If You get an error after compilation (e.g. in MiK v2.9):
    ! pdfTeX error (font expansion): auto expansion is only possible with scalable fonts.
Try one of the following:
1.  Add _Latin Modern_ font loading lines before the document class line:
    It will change bitmap _Computer Modern_ fonts with scalable _Latin Modern_ fonts.
2.  If 1st step does not solve the problem, then use `nofontexpansion` option:
It will turn off font expansion feature of `microtype` package. 
**No worries**: font expansion will still be used at production stage.
  • If Bitstream Vera font (i.e. bera package) is not available in Your distribution, use nobera class option and add alternative main document font:
    \usepackage{mathptmx}% URW Nimbus Roman
Some suggestions can be found here: https://www.tug.org/FontCatalogue/seriffonts.html
**No worries**: `bera` package will still be used at production stage.
