# Help with report writing

I'm new to LaTeX and I'm creating a report for my project, the problem is that the font is not equivalent in all the PDF, and I inserted a PDF file containing a plot but it's not appearing in the place I put in the LaTeX code, but in another place.

One other thing, the margins of the page are so big, so only the page will fit for a small amount of information, and the break line between each line is two lines and not one line.

How can I solve these problems?

That's my code:

    % !TEX TS-program = pdflatex
% !TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode

% This is a simple template for a LaTeX document using the "article" class.
% See "book", "report", "letter" for other types of document.

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,oneside]{report}
\usepackage{fullpage}
\renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{2}
\author{Unknown}
\title{test}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} % set input encoding (not needed with XeLaTeX)

\usepackage{graphicx} % support the \includegraphics command and options

% \usepackage[parfill]{parskip} % Activate to begin paragraphs with an empty line rather than an indent
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{float}
%%% PACKAGES

% \usepackage{booktabs} % for much better looking tables
\usepackage{array} % for better arrays (eg matrices) in maths
% \usepackage{paralist} % very flexible & customisable lists (eg. enumerate/itemize, etc.)
\usepackage{verbatim} % adds environment for commenting out blocks of text & for better verbatim
%\usepackage{subfig} % make it possible to include more than one captioned figure/table in a single float
% These packages are all incorporated in the memoir class to one degree or another...

\begin{document}
\maketitle

%\date{} % Activate to display a given date or no date (if empty),
% otherwise the current date is printed
\DeclareGraphicsExtensions{.pdf,.png,.jpg}

A lot of these points are covered in most introductions to LaTeX. I'd suggest you might want to look at tex.stackexchange.com/questions/11/… for some general guides. –  Joseph Wright May 14 '11 at 19:23

• figures are intended to float to a place where it's good from a typesetting view. You can fix the place by adding the H option: \begin{figure}[H]. This requires the float package, you are already using it.
• The undesired line spread is caused by the line \renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{2}, just remove it.
• Regarding the margins, you can change them using the geometry package, for example: \usepackage[a4paper,hmargin={1cm,2cm},vmargin={2cm,3cm}]{geometry}
@web: You never started a chapter, so the sections are all in the zeroth chapter and hence numbered as 0.*. If you do not want to use chapters, use the article document class. –  Caramdir May 14 '11 at 19:12
