The abstract appears on its own page because you've specified the titlepage option to the article document class: \documentclass[12pt,a4paper, titlepage]{article} If you remove this option (or specify notitlepage), then the abstract will appear on the first page, together with the article title, author, and date: ...

I went with: \begin{abstract} This is cool paper about vuvuzelas. \end{abstract} \renewcommand{\abstractname}{Acknowledgements} \begin{abstract} Thanks Mum! \end{abstract} This way both look similar and good.

Based on Paulo Cereda's suggestion (And the fact I just wrote up a thesis with an abstract using that package, though I didn't double space the abstract), I threw together an example of how this works. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{setspace} %Allows double spacing with the \doublespacing command \begin{document} \begin{abstract} \doublespacing ...

To set a title use the option abstract=on. To change the language load both languages via option and uses the command \selectlanguage provided by babel. To set a double abstract put the environments abstract in a minipage Here a small example: \documentclass[abstract=on]{scrreprt} \usepackage[italian,english]{babel} %Loaded here: ...

The easiest way is to insert \noindent: \begin{abstract} \noindent Recent reports ... \end{abstract} The reason is, that article uses a quotation environment for the abstract, and quotation uses paragraph indentation in contrary to quote. So, you coud redefine the abstract environment to use quote, but it's easier just to insert \noindent. If needed, you ...

\section*{Acknowledgements} Thanks Mum.

Without abusing the usual commands, you can redefine abstract and patch the \maketitle command: \documentclass[a4paper,12pt,titlepage]{scrartcl} \newsavebox{\abstractbox} \renewenvironment{abstract} {\begin{lrbox}{0}\begin{minipage}{\textwidth} \begin{center}\normalfont\sectfont\abstractname\end{center}\quotation} ...

There are really two questions here: how to define the interface and how to implement it. I'll only tackle the former, because the implementation would require several hours' work. First you have to decide whether using non standard commands, say \Title and \Author instead of \title and \author. There are many classes around and different realizations. For ...

abstract is an environment and should be used as such. And \linewidth is smaller than \textwidth within abstract because abstract (without article's titlepage class option) is based on the quotation environment which adds left-hand and right-hand indentation. \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \begin{abstract} This is an abstract. This is an ...

if you're submitting this article to the ams, even if you put the keywords into the abstract, they would be edited to put them into the first-page footnotes. if you're just using the amsart class to prepare a preprint, then my suggestion is to start a new paragraph within the abstract, perhaps like this: \smallskip \noindent \textbf{Keywords.} list of ...

You can do these things with etoc: Note: for an elaboration (incorporating the remark below) of the technique see my answer to Expanded toc-like environment Remark: The code below defines a command \sectionsummary which ultimately writes things to the .toc file. It thus has the same difficulties with fragile commands that the \section command has. To ...

You don't give much indication of the desired layout but perhaps \def\chapstract#1{\begin{quote}\small\itshape#1\end{quote}} \leftskip and \rightskip are TeX primitives which should not be set directly in LaTeX. (The quote environment use the LaTeX list mechanism to set these in a safe way). The full definition of quote in the standard classes is ...

I had a look at the documentation and found out that you can easily set new variables. Sadly, I don't think pandoc is able to automatically extract custom variables, since the documentation states that some variables are automatically set, other aren't. We can extend default.latex from \$PANDOC_HOME/templates to include an abstract verification. I made a ...

\renewcommand{\abstractname}{\vspace{-\baselineskip}} Slightly more economical than the proposed solution (no need for abstract package).

As I said in my comment, \cleardoublepage only works in a double sided layout, so adding twoside to your class options should fix that part. However you problems are not all fixed by this. The other issue is that\pagenumbering{plain} is not a valid counter scheme. What you probably meant is \pagenumbering{arabic}. Once these two changes are done, your ...

Assuming that the abstract and acknowledgement contents is typeset using a \chapter*{...}, you could do the following: \chapter*{Abstract}% \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\numberline{}Abstract}% ... \chapter*{Acknowledgements}% \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\numberline{}Acknowledgements}% ... This will add a chapter-level (chapter) entry to the table of ...

I agree with egreg's comment about using another document class. However if, for some reason, you must use apa6e, then 1., 2., and 3. can be solved by redefining \maketitle as implemented in apa6e.cls. You, however, don't have to modify the file apa6e.cls directly (which, in any case, is never a good practice). You can, for example, make the changes in your ...

Add \thispagestyle{plain} immediately after starting your abstract environment. (In the report class, at the begin of the abstract environment, \titlepage is called internally by default, which sets \thispagestyle{empty}.) EDIT: If you want to switch to arabic page numbering for the rest of your paper, consider to use the book class instead of report and to ...

There's probably no hard-and-fast rule, but I have two suggestions for abstracts, acknowledgements etc. in different languages. One possibility is to typeset the respective text components basically as unnumbered chapters or sections (using the highest-ranking heading of your document). As a tweak, you could locally disable the \clearpage command so that ...

Both the abstract environment and the \maketitle command are defined by the document class. So, tell us at least which class you're using. Furthermore, post a small compilable example showing the problem. Here's such a compilable example using your piece of code but without problem, demonstrating that the cause must be somewhere else but not in those lines: ...

It depends on the option of the class titlepage. The default setting is titlepage=true. You can do two things: \documentclass[12pt, a4paper,notitlepage]{report} Or redefine abstract: \makeatletter \renewenvironment{abstract}{% \if@twocolumn \section*{\abstractname}% \else \small \begin{center}% {\bfseries ...

You could misuse the \publishers element: \documentclass[a4paper,12pt,abstracton,titlepage]{scrartcl} \usepackage[ngerman]{babel} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[ansinew]{inputenc} \usepackage{lmodern} \titlehead{University} \title{Title} \subject{Subject} \author{Author} \publishers{% \normalfont\normalsize% \parbox{0.8\linewidth}{% ...

While you can manually add an entry to the TOC by \addtocontents or \addcontentsline, the order of commands can be important, especially if you use hyperref, to get the hyperlink above the heading, not below or if you add a section to the TOC, which is done by a macro but several pages long, such as by \listoffigures, \listoftables or \bibliography. A ...

Don't use this solution, use setspace instead. For completeness sake, I'm adding another solution. Avoid using it at all costs. You can also use \linespread. The parameter is a factor. Our friends lockstep and Werner provided great answers to this subject in the Why is the linespread factor as it is? question. By simply calling \linespread{1.6}, nothing ...

Write {\sffamily\tableofcontents} instead of \textsf{\tableofcontents}. The \textsf is intended for (smaller) texts and will start a paragraph if used in vertical mode (i.e. between paragraphs). Then \tableofcontents adds its page break which causes an empty page.

You can use the etoolbox package to patch the \maketitle command responsible for typesetting the abstract: \documentclass[doc]{apa6} \usepackage{etoolbox} \title{The Title} \threeauthors{John and Jim}{Mary and Sue}{Nick} \threeaffiliations{U of A}{U of B}{U of C} \abstract{text} \patchcmd{\maketitle}{\abstractname}{\underline{\abstractname}}{}{} ...
