If one of the "standard" document classes -- article, report, and book -- or a document class that's based on one of the standard classes is in use, a straightforward solution consists in loading the sectsty package and issuing the instruction \allsectionsfont{\singlespacing} in the preamble. An MWE (minimum working example): \documentclass{article} ...

A related question has a solution for section headings using the titlesec package. However, if this answer is copied and naïvely modified for chapter headings, it will result in a ! Package titlesec Error: Not allowed in 'easy' settings error. The error arises because the titlesec package works a little differently with chapters than it does sections. An ...

You could add the following instructions to the document's preamble (after loading the setspace package): \usepackage{sectsty} \allsectionsfont{\singlespacing} A full MWE (minimum working example): \documentclass[12pt,oneside]{book} \usepackage{lipsum} % for filler text \usepackage{setspace} \doublespacing \usepackage{sectsty} ...

There may be some other standard solutions but a quick hack is to use the rule command. Give this a try and it might work albeit it isn't the most elegant solution available. Play around with the width and height parameters. \rule[depth]{width}{height} Cheers

You can use minipage to generate a separation as reqested: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \begin{document} \begin{minipage}{0.20\textwidth} %left column Tech \end{minipage} % \hfill\vline\hfill % \begin{minipage}{0.70\textwidth} %right column lot more text multi line wonderful \end{minipage} \end{document} Best, Frank

Swapping \pagebreak for \newpage below the \tableoftables directive fixed the issue

Here's a version without \colorbox (apart from the example), but using the very nice \tcbhighmath command from tcolorbox and the configurable settings of highlight math style={....} The most important setting is size=tight, but there is size=minimal too! \documentclass{article} \usepackage{xcolor} \usepackage[most]{tcolorbox} \usepackage{blindtext} ...

\colorbox adds padding on the four sides; you want to remove it. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{blindtext} \usepackage{xcolor} \definecolor{light-gray}{gray}{0.89} \newcommand{\graybg}[1]{% \begingroup\setlength{\fboxsep}{0pt}% no padding \colorbox{light-gray}{#1}% \endgroup } \begin{document} \blindtext $\mathsf{A \rightarrow P(x)}$ ...

I would not use titlesec together with a koma-class, as the warnings in your document say Usage of package `titlesec' together(scrartcl) with a KOMA-Script class is not recommended. If you do not use any koma specific mechanism, I usually found it easier to change the class, for example to article, than to change from titlesec to something else. Also ...

like this : \documentclass[a4paper, 10 pt, oneside, final]{scrartcl} \usepackage[left=4.1cm, right=1.0cm, top=0.35cm, bottom=0.75cm]{geometry} \usepackage{soul} \usepackage{scrpage2} \usepackage{titlesec} \usepackage{marvosym} \usepackage{tabularx} \usepackage[francais]{babel} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \pagestyle{empty} ...

You can set \parskip, but this needs a minor modification to \years so the \marginnote appears when the paragraph has already started. I set \parskip only locally, for the list of publications. I also reorganized your preamble to have all packages first and settings later. Note that xltxtra and xunicode should not be loaded; just fontspec. Never use \\ for ...

I guess this is hardcoded in the *.sty file. When looking at the moderncvbodyi.sty you'll find the following: \renewcommand*{\cventry}[7][.25em]{% \cvitem[#1]{#2}{% {\bfseries#3}% \ifthenelse{\equal{#4}{}}{}{, {\slshape#4}}% \ifthenelse{\equal{#5}{}}{}{, #5}% \ifthenelse{\equal{#6}{}}{}{, #6}% .\strut% \ifx&#7&% ...

The question started from being akin to Wikipedia and ended up as a duplicate. As you can see, process of colouring the heading and setting it to uppercase is pretty much manual. Is there a command that I can use to automate it? Also, I would like a '.' (dot) after the number. The question # 1 (coloured section) has been answered by @Arne ...

Alternatively, you can ask fontspec to scale the fonts according to your main font instead of using a trial-and-error number. This is done by using either MatchLowercase or MatchUppercase as an argument to the Scale option. In your case, you can declare your font as: \newfontfamily{\ezra}{Ezra SIL}[Scale=MatchLowercase] If you are using other fonts in ...

You can scale the font when you create your new font family with an additional font feature: \documentclass[twocolumn,10pt]{article} \usepackage{polyglossia} \setmainlanguage{dutch} \usepackage{fontspec} \newfontfamily{\ezra}{Ezra SIL}[Scale=0.8] \DeclareTextFontCommand{\textezra}{\ezra} \begin{document} Nadruk op het in acht nemen van de geboden. ...

Place \looseness=1 before the paragraph of text TeX will attempt to set the paragraph using one extra line, so you should end up with 7 lines in each column.

Please always post complete documents, but here just remove the {...} around your text and just have \footnotesize or simpler just have text in the table and use \begin{tabular}{>{\footnotesize}m{0.50\textwidth}c} to specify the size as part of the column specification.

Honestly, your definition of .5\baselineskip is exactly the length of \medskip, which is equivalent to \vspace{\medskipamount}. If we show these values we get: \verb!\baselineskip =! \the\baselineskip \verb! \medskip =! \the\medskipamount So if we define a new length of that size, it'll look like \medskip. Of course, the major difference would be ...

It's probably bad practice, although hard to say with no context. Firstly \\ does not end the paragraph. If your narrative reaches a point where a large visual break is needed then a paragraph break would seem more natural. If all paragraph breaks need the same visual skip then there is nothing more to do, but if this is a special break then using blah ...

Here's a way to indent the final block by limiting the scope of the \setlength{\parindent}{0pt} and adding an explicit skip at the start. \documentclass{book} \usepackage[turkish]{babel}%türkçe karakter \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{textpos} \newcommand{\fromtop}[1]{\dimexpr-1in-\topskip-\topmargin-\headheight-\headsep+#1\relax} ...
