Setting a critical editions of (Greek) fragments with facing translations works fine with ledmac and ledpar. Even the critical apparatuses (up to 3) are there (at the bottom of the page).

Now I have to set a bundle of fragments with the apparatuses (?) right beneath the concerning fragment, then followed by the next fragment/apparatuses and so on.

With ledmac (without facing translations) one can use minipage/ledgroup which - again - works fine.

But I (or ledpar - I don't hope so) am not able to use \begin{ledgroup} ... \end{ledgroup} in my parallel version.

Here a minimum example:

\documentclass{scrbook}
\usepackage{ledmac,ledpar}  
\setcounter{firstlinenum}{1}    
\setcounter{linenumincrement}{1}
\begin{document}

\begin{pages}
\begin{Leftside}
\beginnumbering
\pstart
\edtext{This is a sample text.}{\Afootnote{A secondary footnote}} 
\pend

\endnumbering
\end{Leftside}

\begin{Rightside}

\beginnumbering

\pstart
On this page there is supposed to be the translation of the left page.
\pend

\endnumbering
\end{Rightside}

\Pages
\end{pages}

\end{document}

Has anyone some (or better lots of) experience with ledpar and an idea how this problem could be solved?

Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: You can use backticks ` to mark your inline code as I did in my edit. –  Joseph Wright Nov 18 '11 at 12:16
    
Thank you for this tip. Now it looks better. –  Carsten Binder Nov 18 '11 at 14:39

The problem is solved. Maïeul Rouquette has modified the ledpar-package. Now it works. It will be uploaded on CTAN within the next days.

I don't know if it is what you wish, but you can have parallel columns on a minipage..., like this for instance :

\begin{minipage}{16.5cm}
\begin{pairs} 
\begin{Leftside} 
\beginnumbering 
\pstart 
\edtext{This is a sample text.}{\Afootnote{A secondary footnote}} 
\pend 
\endnumbering 
\end{Leftside} 
\begin{Rightside} 
\beginnumbering 
\pstart 
On this page there is supposed to be the translation of the left page. 
\pend 
\endnumbering 
\end{Rightside} 
\Columns 
\end{pairs} 
\end{minipage}

That is not exactly what I wish. I need facing pages not columns. The minipage-env does not work in that way with \begin{pages} and \end{pages} because there are pagebreaks (I think). "Normal" TeX-footnotes work in my example, but the Afootnotes etc. not :-( –  Carsten Binder Nov 19 '11 at 10:17
