Overview

The eledmac package is for typesetting critical editions. It is a LaTeX port, and extension, of the plain TeX EDMAC, TABMAC and EDSTANZA macros. The eledpar package is an extension of eledmac enabling parallel typesetting in columns or on facing pages.

Eledmac and eledpar are successors of ledmac and ledpar.

The package is available on CTAN.

  • Add a minimal working example.
  • If your report is really a bug, Maïeul Rouquette will open a "branch" to solve your problem. This branch will be called "issueXXX", where "XXX" is the issue number.
  • Once the problem has a possible solution, Maïeul Rouquette will send you a zip file and ask you to test it:
    • Download the zip file of the branch (or, if you know Git, go to the branch there):
      • Go to the project page.
      • Choose the correct branch in the "branch" menu.
      • Click on the cloud, in the right side.
    • Run the .ins files with pdflatex, to obtain the .sty files.
    • Put the .sty files with your test files (in the same folder).
    • Make your report.
