Modifications to Zettlr's export.pdf.yaml configuration file for generating LaTeX PDFs

In case anyone is interested, here are my modifications to the PDF (Latex) output defaults for Zettlr+Pandoc. This file is accessible in the Zettlr assets manager under preferences > assets manager > Exports > PDF. This example shows how to augment the Zettlr+Pandoc+MikTeX configuration to include style files and various packages as needed.

# Sets the size of the document's pages.
papersize: a4 # Possible values: a0-a6, b0-b6, c0-c6,b0j, letter, executive, legal
# Further variables are documented here: https://pandoc.org/MANUAL.html#variables-for-latex
# My customizations start here
# The fontfamily: and fontfamilyoptions: settings are equivalent to
# - \usepackage[euler-digits,euler-hat-accent]{eulervm}
fontfamily: eulervm
- euler-digits
- euler-hat-accent
fontsize: 12pt
# The following file was borrowed from https://github.com/Inventium/latexcolor.com
# (I ran out of colors)
- \input{C:/Users/fleng/Dropbox (Personal)/Zettelkasten/Templates/LatexColors.incl.tex}
- \usepackage{newpxtext}
- \usepackage{amsthm}
- \usepackage{nicematrix}
- \usepackage{tikz-cd}
- \newtheorem{thm}{Theorem}
- \newtheorem{lem}{Lemma}
- \newtheorem{prop}{Proposition}
- \newtheorem{fact}{Fact}
# This was almost needed: we copied a dash instead of a minus sign!
# - \DeclareUnicodeCharacter{2212}{\textendash}
- \usetikzlibrary{matrix}
- \newcommand\x{\times} # borrowed from StackExchange
pdf-engine: pdflatex # xelatex does not work well with the fonts chosen
dpi: 300

Here's some sample output. This proposition is generally considered too trivial to prove.

Another staggering example. Code borrowed from https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/69713/matrix-change-row-or-column-background
