Formating on one page is broken, namely in header part there is missing one parameter (word) and the columns looks differently as shows the picture bellow. How can I correct the formating?

The script can be found here and here is full compilable example with pictures (37MB) of letter M. On page 22 appears lost formating. In zip files can be view also log files from compilation.

I am pretty sure that your linked minimal example is not really minimal. – StrongBad Feb 8 '13 at 10:58
Yes. Plus the example is not complete, because the behaviour appears only in rare cases (fx. not in letters N, O etc.). We need to search for general ideas that can cause such behaviour in formating. – chejnik Feb 8 '13 at 13:19
Without an compilable MWE I think it is very hard, I guess impossible to help you. First of all the pictures are missing. Then there could be an encoding problem, because for example I never used icelandic or czech (could be a problem if the language is not installed ...). Can you provide a compilable MWE, for example as a zip file (to make sure the encoding is right, to contain all pictures (you can change them to ìmage-example-a.jpg from package MWE), to keep your directory strukture or create one complete tex file) ... – Kurt Feb 9 '13 at 0:27
I have added compilable files with log files. Thank you for attention. – chejnik Feb 11 '13 at 9:05
This questions needs to be reformatted. Please make the first few lines of the question a meaningful text which explains your problem, not "Find here the MW. Update: Here the full MWE.". These lines appear on overview pages and should also give a reader a good first impression. Also, "Update" or "Edit" headlines are unwanted here. Please simply edit your question to a new version which reflects the new content. Older versions can be viewed using the question history. – Martin Scharrer Feb 13 '13 at 16:29

The floatrow package is monkeying with the output routine in some incompatible way.

If you comment out these lines:

\DeclareFloatFont{footnotesize}{\footnotesize}% "scriptsize" is defined by floatrow, "tiny" not

then the problem goes away, apparently without causing any other issues to your far-from-minimal testcase. If you do in fact need floatrow then I suggest to spend some effort to make a true minimal testcase (eliminate all the packages not needed from the preamble, etc) and send it to the floatrow author.

Thank you. I will observe more carefully the final result while adding new code to already made script. Later when I start adding tables with declentions I discover the issue with floatrow. – chejnik Feb 14 '13 at 5:54
