By not doing whatever you are doing to avoid this behaviour: \documentclass{memoir} \begin{document} abc\footnote{a}\footnote{b} \end{document}

Initial remarks Firstly, consider what elements of Tufte's book design you want to emulate (the page geometry, the styling of running heads and headers, side notes, different widths and position of floats). If the answer is "everything, of course" then think seriously about simply using the tufte-latex class, which is established, well-featured and ...

For strange reasons, the font enables a No ligature: this is a very nasty feature, as you discovered. You can disable it by adding Ligatures=NoCommon; since f-ligatures are not used anyway, you should be OK with this. \documentclass[a4paper, 12pt]{memoir} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont[ Extension=.ttf, UprightFont=*regular, ItalicFont=*italic, ...

I suggest that you read section 2.6 Putting it together in the manual. Note that the page layout is only automatic for the normal desktop publishing paper sizes of A4 and letterpaper. The following does pretty much what you are after. I have used the class option foolscapvopaper for a stock paper 6.75 by 4.25 inches (which is the size of several of my ...

The biblatex manual explicitly states about the mischief in conjunction with memoir and recommends the heading=... and \defbibheading. I used \defbibheading{bay}[\bibname]{% \chapter*{#1}% \markboth{#1}{#1}% \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\protect\numberline{}\bibname} } i.e. adding a chapter heading as usual and an empty number entry, i.e. the ...

The particular error is that the document loads two incompatible redefinitions of math mode, fouriernc and mathptmx but more generally the preamble loads multiple packages many of them three or four times, and most of them unneeded as the already extensive memoir class is used as base. It also loads newlfont, etex, fixltx2e which shouldn't be used with ...

The \chapter command sets the \thispagestyle{chapter} explicitly which has no header by default. To trick memoir it's possible to use \aliaspagestyle, but ideally one would copy the original chapter page style first. \documentclass{memoir} \makepagestyle{generalstyle} \makeevenhead{generalstyle}{}{HEADER}{} \makeoddhead{generalstyle}{}{HEADER}{} ...

It's possible to define the \mempreaddchaptertotochook and \mempostaddchaptertotochook hooks to prevent that \addcontentsline writes the page number to he .aux file already. However, this does not yet work with hyperref due to the special additions by hyperref. \documentclass{memoir} \let\origaddcontentsline\addcontentsline % Store the original ...

You really don't want the picture to float, but figure tells LaTeX to float the contents. This introduces complications it seems best to do without. Moreover, eliminating the figure environment solves the centring problem: \documentclass[a4paper]{memoir} \setstocksize{29.7cm}{21.0cm} % A4 stock \settrimmedsize{27.94cm}{21.0cm}{*} % 27.94cm = 11in ...

I don't see any benefits of use of adjustbox (it as was provided in MWE, cause error) in your table, I comment it (for possible future proper use). After erasing all surplus ampersands and slightly "prettifying" of your table I got at memoir as document class the following result: \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{memoir} \usepackage[margin=1 ...

Here's a solution that gets by without an adjustbox mechanism, and which compiles fine with both the report and the memoir document classes. It uses a tabularx environment to assure that the table takes up the full width of the text block. \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{report} \usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry} \usepackage{booktabs,amsmath,tabularx} ...

2

The main error is caused by the missing required argument to \begin{adjustbox}. On the other hand, surrounding the table with \begin{adjustbox}{} <table> \end{adjustbox} does nothing, except localizing the font size change. But keeping it for future adjustments is not harmful. You also had wrong {} in the argument to tabular and && when it ...

This will solve the problem: \def\cftchapteraftersnum{.} Edit: try with this MWE: \documentclass[a4paper,12pt,openany,leqno,footinclude=true]{memoir} \usepackage{tocloft} \def\cftchapteraftersnum{.} \begin{document} \tableofcontents \chapter{blabla} \section{blab blab} \chapter{bleble} \section{bleb bleb} \end{document} BTW: ...

The answer by @ChristianHupfer is to be preferred as it is based on a reading of the biblatex manual ... here is a hack which is more cumbersome. I have added hyperref only for testing compatibility. \documentclass[a5paper]{memoir} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[brazil]{babel} \selectlanguage{brazil} ...

I suggest to use \NewDocumentCommand to check for the multiple cases: \chapter[][]{} and \chapter*[]{} Fill in the new definitions of your own chapter - style then. My definition here will fail for \chapter*[][]{} -> what should be done there? \documentclass{memoir} \usepackage[acronym]{glossaries} \usepackage{xparse} \makeglossaries ...

I found something that works: \makeatletter \let\stdchapter\chapter \renewcommand*\chapter{% \if@star{\@dblarg\starchapter}{\stdchapter} \def\starchapter[#1]#2{% \stdchapter*[{#1}]{#2}} \makeatother This seems to do the trick (though I'm not so sure it's the best way to do things given the comments by clemens and Christian Hupfer)

The package subfigure is outdated since quite a time. Please consider using subfig or subcaption. The following should work in memoir and report. % arara: pdflatex \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{memoir} \usepackage[margin=1 in]{geometry} \usepackage[demo]{graphicx} \usepackage{subcaption} \usepackage[section]{placeins} \begin{document} \section{Figure ...

The margins in your image look about right (typically the outer ones should be around twice the inner ones) but if you are going to lose space due to binding the geometry package has specific options to set a binding offset eg \geometry{bindingoffset=0.375in,textwidth=280pt}

We have to add another conditional: if we are not in the main matter, \chapter should behave like \chapter* as far as formatting is concerned. \documentclass{memoir} \makeatletter %% Thomas Dye's southall chapter style (modified) \makechapterstyle{southall-mod}{% \chapterstyle{default} \setlength{\afterchapskip}{5\baselineskip} ...

I'm not sure what the purpose of this is, but here you find an implementation, also compatible with hyperref. \documentclass{memoir} \usepackage{blindtext} % just for the example \usepackage{hyperref} \makeatletter \let\original@l@chapter\l@chapter \renewcommand{\l@chapter}[2]{% \gdef\saved@chapter@number{}% ...
