Here is a suggestion using scrlayer-scrpage. This package uses layers to define page styles. It is possible to define new layers and to add these layers to existing or to new defined layer page styles. In the following example I declare new layers for the background of the outer margin, the page number, the chapter number and the text in the outer margin. ...

To add a dot after the chapter number in the title of the chapter only, you need to patch \@makechapterhead: \usepackage{etoolbox} \makeatletter \patchcmd{\@makechapterhead}% <cmd> {\thechapter}% <search> {\thechapter.}% <replace> {}{}% <success><failure> \makeatother To add a dot after the (any) sectional number in its ...

You have to be careful of what might end up in the ToC. As such, use a different optional argument for \chapter: \documentclass{report} \usepackage[paper=a6paper]{geometry}% Just for this example \begin{document} \tableofcontents \chapter[hello]{hello\footnote{another author}} \end{document} If you want something that's a little more subtle, you ...

Here is what I understood of your requirements: \documentclass[12pt, a4paper, oneside]{book}% \usepackage[top=4cm,bottom=2.5cm,right=2.5cm,left=4cm, headheight=15pt, showframe]{geometry} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{fourier} \usepackage{lipsum,setspace } \usepackage[pagestyles, clearempty]{titlesec} \newpagestyle{myps}{% ...

I tried to adapt the MWE you provided. First I simplified the TikZ code to produce the elements seperately. Then I got stuck with getting the Chapter name displayed. (redefined chaptermark) and assuming, that you only want the thumbs on chapter start pages, I defined the plain style of fancyhdr to produce the style you required. However, a style for right ...

You can redefine \afterchapternum to just issue a \par. By default it's defined as \renewcommand*{\afterchapternum}{% \par\centerline{\parbox{0.5in}{\hrulefill}}\par} under the thatcher chapter style, which insert the 1/2" horizontal rule. \documentclass{memoir} \usepackage{lipsum} \chapterstyle{thatcher} \renewcommand{\printchaptername}{\...

Here is an option that uses the article class and setting the title manually. ToC-entries are inserted as \sections, which you can format using tocloft, if needed: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[paper=a5paper]{geometry}% Document layout \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{lipsum} \makeatletter \newcommand{\entry}[2]{% \entry{<date>}{<title&...

To give you something to start with: \documentclass{book} \usepackage{xcolor} \usepackage{titlesec} \usepackage{hyperref} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage[percent]{overpic} \usepackage{fix-cm} \usepackage{lipsum} % formats: \chapter \newcommand\ctformatchapter[1]{% \parbox[b][6cm][b]{\dimexpr.5\textwidth\relax}{% \raggedright% \...

Use a \chapter*. Some other modification are also needed in order to place the appendix in the ToC (if needed) and update the headers: \documentclass{book} \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \tableofcontents \chapter{A chapter} \lipsum[1-10] \appendix \chapter*{Appendix 1} \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Appendix 1}% Add Appendix to ToC \markboth{...

I am not quite sure, but i think this could be an answer to the question. Typesetting of the chapter heading is temporarily disabled, hence no material is flushed. \documentclass{report} \usepackage{lmodern} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[UKenglish]{babel} \usepackage[a5paper, %hmargin = {3cm, .8in}, left = 2.3cm, ...

this worked for me. :D \begingroup% \makeatletter% \cleardoublepage% \let\newpage\relax% \let\clearpage\relax% \vspace*{\fill}% \vspace*{\dimexpr-50\p@-\baselineskip}% Remove the initial %% -default- 50pt gap (plus 1 line) \chapter{Hello World} \vspace*{\fill}% \endgroup%
