Seminar bugs list (version 1.7)


1 - Bug in seminar.cls for the note environment

Reported by: Denis Girou
Date: 1995
Description: Using the note environment generate a fatal error:

! Bad space factor (0).

<recently read> \@savsf

Perhaps only since LaTeX 2e.
Test file:

\documentclass[portrait]{seminar}

\input{seminar.bug}

\begin{document}

\begin{note}
  Text of note.
\end{note}

\end{document}
Workaround: Load the file seminar.bg2, which contains the following code:
% 1 - To correct a bug in the note environment
%     (reported by Denis Girou (CNRS/IDRIS) - <Denis.Girou@idris.fr> - 1995)
\@savsf=1

2 - Bugs in slidesec.sty in the \slideheading and\slidesubheading macros

Reported by: Denis Girou
Date: July 18, 1995
Description: There are several bugs to generate a list of slides with subsection entries (defined by the \slidesubheading macro) using the \listofslides macro (related to the \theslidesubsection, \slide@heading and \slide@subheading macros). But we found problems only if we define our own format for the list of slides.
Add-ons: Other problems were reported June 5, 1997 by Axel Thimm <thimm@physik.fu-berlin.de>: when a new heading is defined, the subheading must be cleared; in article mod coherence must be assured between heading and subheading when used in header/footer.
Improvements (\refstepcounter and \@addtoreset) suggested September 30, 1997 by Jeremy Gibbons <jgibbons@brookes.ac.uk>.

  1. The macro \theslidesubsection used in \slide@subheading is undefined due to typo (\thesubslidesection is defined in place of it!)
  2. The counter for the subsections is not reset to 0 in \slide@heading when we change of section (so the numerotation obtained is something like 1, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 2, 2.4, etc.). So, we must add \setcounter{slidesubsection}{0} in \slide@heading.
  3. The section counter is incremented when we change of subsection, in place of the subsection counter....
  4. In \slide@subheading, \makeslideheading is called in place of \makeslidesubheading.

3 - Bug in slidesec.sty in the \slidecontents macro

4 - Incompatibily between the Graphicx package and Seminar

Reported by: Karl Tombre and Denis Roegel
Date: January 16, 1997
Description: The \espfslidesize Seminar macro work only with the old version of the EpsFig package, so with \includegraphics the PostScript files are always scaled without the possibility to leave them to there natural size. And also these files are not correctly scaled when we switch from normal to article mode under Seminar. So, we must redefined the \epsfslidesize macro of Seminar and modify few internal macros of Graphicx.

(Note: I consider only the GraphicX package, not the GraphicS one)

Test file:

\documentclass[portrait]{seminar}

\usepackage{graphicx}

\input{seminar.bug}

\begin{document}

\epsfslidesize

\begin{slide*}
  \centerline{\includegraphics{figure.eps}}
\end{slide*}

\end{document}
Workaround: After loading the Graphicx package, load the file seminar.bg2, which contains the following code:

5 - Incompatibily between the LongTable package and Seminar

6 - To allow automatic changes of language dependant labels, for instance by loading the french package after Seminar

7 - The `french' package is not compatible with Seminar since version 4.02

Reported by: Bernard Gaulle / Denis Girou
Date: January 1998
Description: Some internal changes in french.sty 4.02 break Seminar (and the `fancybox' package too).

Test file:

\documentclass{seminar}

\usepackage{french} % Since french.sty 4.02
% Or: \usepackage[french]{babel} % Since french.sty 4.02 and up to date french.ldf

\begin{document}
\begin{slide}
  A
\end{slide}
\end{document}
Workaround: Unfortunately for users of the `french' package, no definitive good workaround is currently known.
The three major ones are:
  • Add the line \mbox{}\clearpage just after the \begin{document} and don't use the first printed page...
  • Desactivate the new functionnality of `french' which cause the problem, by adding the following line before to load `french':
    \makeatletter\newcommand{\babel@core@loaded}{}\makeatother % Pb since french 4.02
    \usepackage{french} % Since french.sty 4.02
    
    Remarks:
    • This solution is disapproved by Bernard Gaulle, the author of the `french' package.
    • This solution doesn't work if `french' is loaded by the `babel' package itself (if your Babel system - that is to say the file french.ldf - is up to date).
  • You can try this modification inside seminar.cls:
    \ifarticle
      \def\output@slide{%
        \global\advance\slide@count1
        \@ifundefined{slidebox@\the\slide@count}%
          {{\globaldefs=1\expandafter
            \new@slidebox\csname slidebox@\the\slide@count\endcsname}}{}%
        \expandafter\global\expandafter\setbox\csname

    % control sequences to the .aux file but Seminar has a non standard
    % LaTeX output routine with no protectable material).

        \endgroup
        \let\firstmark\botmark}
      \@ifundefined{fancyput@flag}{\def\fancyput@flag{-1}}{}
    \fi
    
    Remarks:
    • You have to make the same modification of the \shipout\box\@slidebox line in seminar.bug
    • This solution has no garanty at all and possibly can have bad side effects...
    • If you use Seminar both with the `fancybox' package, this correction will of course not solve the incompatibility between `french' since version 4.02 and `fancybox'...

8 - The footer, if defined, is not exactly well positionned

Reported by: Denis Girou
Date: May 1998
Description: This is mainly visible when using the `fancyhdr' package, and specially when a footer rule line is defined using the \footrulewidth command. The discrepancy is of around 5 millimeters.

Test file:

\documentclass[a4]{seminar}

\input{seminar.bug}

\usepackage{fancyhdr}

% Headers and footers personalization using the fancyhdr package
\fancyhead{} % Clear all fields
\renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0.2mm}
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0.2mm}
\fancyhead[C]{\large\textbf{My Title}}
\fancyfoot[L]{\thedate}
\fancyfoot[C]{My organization}
\fancyfoot[R]{Page \theslide}

% To center horizontally the headers and footers (see seminar.bug)
\renewcommand{\headwidth}{\textwidth}

% To adjust the frame length to the header and footer ones
\autoslidemarginstrue

\pagestyle{fancy}

\begin{document}

\begin{slide}
  Text.
\end{slide}

\end{document}
Workaround: Load the file seminar.bg2, which contains the following code:
% 7 - To vertically correctly center the footer, if defined
%     (this is mainly visible when using the `fancyhdr' package, and specially
%     when a footer rule line is defined)
%     (reported by Denis Girou (CNRS/IDRIS) - <Denis.Girou@idris.fr> - April 1998)
