A manual solution The cgloss4e package (which is loaded by both gb4e and linguex to format glossed examples) provides very little customization options for the gloss spacing. If you only have a relatively small set of examples which will need extra formatting, it's possible to do it by splitting up the examples manually. It's not an ideal solution, but it ...

Alternative solution that I have come up with. this is not what i wanted in first place but its something. I would be happy if some one can put Checked-box as the background for this one. And again there is some aligning problems with minipage but i will ignore this one for now. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[framemethod=TikZ]{mdframed} ...

I know Clemens loves \arrow{0} but his solution sounds complicated to me. Why don't you use \schemestart...\schemestop inside \chemname, which seems more natural? \documentclass{article} \usepackage{chemfig} \begin{document} \schemestart \chemname{% \schemestart \chemfig{R-[:30](=[:90]O)-[:-30]R} \arrow{0}[,.5] ...

If you place the first two compounds in a \subscheme{...} the whole subscheme gets a unique name that you can refer to in an arrow using the \arrow{@<name>--) syntax: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{chemfig} \begin{document} % uncomment to see the names: % schemedebug{true} \schemestart \subscheme{ \chemfig{R-[:30](=[:90]O)-[:-30]R} ...

Taking some hints from Package xparse \SplitList last token, you can define a list processor that performs your request iteratively: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{graphicx,xparse}% http://ctan.org/pkg/{graphicx,xparse} \newcounter{itemcntr} \NewDocumentCommand\createanswerbox{O{,\,} >{\SplitList{,}}m} {% \setcounter{itemcntr}{0}% Start at 1. ...

Using pdfTeX (i.e., use latex or pdflatex to compile) and a transliteration for 'ancient' Greek: \documentclass[12pt]{article} \parindent0pt \useackage[T1]{fontenc}% \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}% \usepackage[polutonikogreek,latin,english]{babel} % switch to language environments \newcommand{\latin}[1]{% ...

You can peek ahead and see whether there is an \ritem following an \rposition (using \@ifnextchar). If this is the case, just gobble it (using \@gobble). Of course, if it will always be followed by an\ritem, you can just gobble it regardless. Here's a way using the first (conditional) approach: \documentclass{article} % Short (i.e., one- to two-line) ...

Since compounds are per default centered with respect to arrow in chemfig's schemes I usually use an invisible arrow (type 0) with length 0 (\arrow{0}[,0], the second optional argument scales the arrow relative to the basic length, the “compoundsep”) to center compounds: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{chemfig,chemmacros} \begin{document} ...

The class book does not include starred chapters into the table of contents. The \tableofcontents and \listoffigures use a starred chapter internally, therefore I guess that you are using package tocbibind that includes both \tableofcontents and \listoffigures in the table of contents. The first can be disabled by option nottoc: \documentclass{book} ...

I don't get a Contents line in the following MWE \documentclass{book} \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \tableofcontents% \chapter{First} \lipsum% \chapter{Second} \lipsum% \end{document} Do you have a line that is something like \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Contents} near to \tableofcontents? The \addcontentsline will add an ...

You can use the titlesec package and its \titleformat and \titlespacing commands. \documentclass{book} \usepackage[pass,showframe]{geometry} \usepackage{titlesec} \titleformat{\chapter}[display] {\filleft\Large} {\chaptername\ \thechapter} {5ex} {\bfseries\MakeUppercase} \titlespacing*{\chapter} {0pt} {-15pt} {60pt} \begin{document} ...

Briefly, there are two options in R, these are "Sweave library" (not my favorite) and "knitr library". After using both, I recommend using knitr. What do you need? First, you need install knitr in R, >install.packages("knitr") And load it: >library(knitr) Then you create a regular \LaTeX file and save it with the extension .Rnw (foo.Rnw) I ...

The simplest thing to do is to load the verbatim package in your document's preamble; then you can put \verbatiminput{output.txt} in your document. This will include the contents of your text file, set it in a typewriter font, and not change the formatting at all. A more full-featured solution involves loading the listings package, as suggested by Marco ...

For example \documentclass{article} \usepackage{listings} \begin{document} \lstset{moredelim=[is][\itshape]{[}{]}} \begin{lstlisting}[frame=single] Array1: 78 54 31 54 92 86 23 54 65 54 54 38 100 92 86 59 54 70 [59 54 91 65 54 31 54 31 54 70 100 91 92 55 70 54 51 61 91 65 59 54 38 54 81 61 92 59 54 38 54 96 61 92] 59 54 38 54 81 54 92 90 54 92 ...

The command \renewcommand\contentsname{\Large{TABLE OF CONTENTS}} is wrong as the \....name macros are just supposed to have and (expandable) macro with the text to use to allow for localisation. A font command is not expandable so will not work in all contexts. If you were to put in a font command you should keep it local to the command, \Large does not ...

${\scriptstyle<}1\mathrm{ms}$ perhaps?

The code \documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{book} \title{title here} \author{author here} \date{date here} \begin{document} \maketitle \end{document} produces the output Edit: As pointed out by @Gonzalo Medina, if you want to use the article class, just change the first line of the code to \documentclass[titlepage]{article}.

That's the amsart class, see http://www.ctan.org/pkg/amsart for more details.

Try the package cals. I wrote it with a similar need in mind.

I claim this is a problem with the dvi driver bleeding the coloured panels too far, but I see the same with dvipng You can compensate by over-printing an uncoloured table over the top so the rules are on top of the colour not adjacent. Compare and \documentclass{standalone} \usepackage[table]{xcolor} \begin{document} \def\foo#1{\begin{tabular}{ ...

To get a cell spanning several rows, you can use the multirow package. \backslashbox works well with this within its implemantion limits - the slash is constructed as a LaTeX picture, and so there are only a limited number of slopes for the line allowed. \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage{slashbox,multirow} \begin{document} ...

The standard way to cope with this kind of problems is to use \@seccntformat, the macro that takes care of formatting the section number (any level below chapter, in the standard classes). The usual definition is \csname the#1\endcsname \quad where #1 is the counter associated to the current section level. So if you define \def\@seccntformat#1{% ...

You can go to the file pseudocode.sys (if you are using a pseudocode environment) and changing the word "algorithm" by "algorithme". The file is installed C/programfile/...Miktex...pseudocode

David did beat me by a couple of minutes, but this version here does indentation as requested and is not producing overfull lines (within reason): \documentclass{article} \makeatletter % this defines myverbatim environment. to change name replace "myverbatim" in all places below (strctly speaing it is only necessary in some but ... :-) ...

You just want the definition of verbatim without the \obeylines part: ! \documentclass{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \makeatletter \newenvironment{exB}{% \trivlist \item\relax \let\do\@makeother \dospecials \verbatim@font \@noligs \hyphenchar\font\m@ne \catcode\ \active \catcode\^^M\active \catcode\\\active \lccode\~\\% ...

"l" means left aligned so everything in the cell comes out in a single row and if you have a lot of material you end up exceeding the available width on your page. Alternatives: use p{<width>} on one or more columns to have the text inside wrap the the specified <width> or use the package tabularx which allows you to get the column width for ...

You need to run this twice \documentclass{article} \usepackage{color} \makeatletter \def\savepos#1{\leavevmode\pdfsavepos\write\@auxout{% \gdef\string\save@#1{{\the\pdflastxpos sp }{\the\pdflastypos sp }}}} \def\xx#1{\expandafter\expandafter\expandafter\@firstoftwo\csname save@#1\endcsname} ...

Similar as the definition for the tt fontfamily, you can build a sf family to use \sffamily: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fancyvrb} \makeatletter \begingroup \catcode\=\active \gdef\FV@fontfamily@sf{% \def\FV@FontScanPrep{\FV@MakeActive\}% \def\FV@FontFamily{\sffamily\edef{{\string}}}} \endgroup \makeatother \begin{document} \noindent ...

Maybe simply: \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \makeatletter %\def\verbatim@font{\normalfont\ttfamily} % original one \def\verbatim@font{\normalfont\sffamily} \makeatother \begin{verbatim} Sans serif, indeed. \end{verbatim} \end{document}

I wrote a LaTeX template to imitate the features I use most often in Word.

It seems that consecutive \tabucline create even more gaps. This seems to work: \tabucline[tableheadcolor]{1-1}\noalign{\kern-\arrayrulewidth} \tabucline[paleblue]{2-2}\noalign{\kern-\arrayrulewidth} \tabucline{3-6}

With PSTricks. \documentclass[preview]{standalone} \usepackage{pst-node,multido} \def\mybox#1{\psframebox{\makebox[3cm]{#1}}} \begin{document} \offinterlineskip \psmatrix[rowsep=.5] \mybox{A}\\ \mybox{B}\\ \mybox{C} \endpsmatrix \multido{\ia=1+1,\ib=2+1}{3}{\ncline{\ia,1}{\ib,1}} \end{document}

You can use \hhline (hhline package) instead and colour a line the same as the background colour for the first two segments.

Another option, using TikZ and chains: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{chains} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture}[ start chain=going below, node distance=3mm, every node/.style={on chain,join}, every join/.style={-}, block/.style={draw, text width=3cm,align=center} ] \foreach \i in {1,...,5} \node[block] {Text \i}; ...

\def\theequation{S\arabic{equation}} I assume that you use it in article. Definition for report or book should be a bit modified. MWE: \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \def\theequation{S\arabic{equation}} $$2+2=4$$ \end{document}

The Code: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{arrows} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture} [auto, block/.style = {rectangle, draw, text width = 6em, align =center}, line/.style = {draw, thick, -}] \matrix[every node/.style = block, row sep=6mm]{ \node (t1) {Text 1}; \\ \node (t2) {Text 2}; \\ \node (t3) {Text 3}; \\ \node (t4) ...

I contacted the package maintainer, who confirmed that it is a bug. He quickly responded and provided a fix a few hours later which he intends to include in the next update of paracol to version 1.2.

I cannot help for the observed issue, that I must confirm. But if you would invoke the sectioning commands as intended by the package, everything would work fine (code shortened to be almost minimal): Note, that I removed the package option for paper and font size, since a4 and 11pt are the defaults anyway (and the documented option setting for paper size ...

The question doesn't specifically ask for LaTeX, yet all answers so far are in LaTeX, none in TeX. My solution, which, of course, you can put into a \def or simply straight into the text if you only need it once: C\raise .8ex \hbox{$_{++}$} Assuming 10pt size of the font; the '++' is in script style, which is size 7. Would it be better to use ...

For more automation, you may want to define a new command \bitem, as follows: \documentclass{article} \newcommand\bitem[1]{\item{\bfseries #1}\\} \begin{document} \begin{enumerate} \bitem {Specify a mean equation for the returns} by testing for serial dependence of $r_t$ an, if necessary, building an ARMA model \bitem {Test for ARCH ...
