You're probably misunderstanding what total= is for: it specifies the width and height of the text block, not the paper size. The paper size is already specified by the global option a4paper (you don't need to pass it to geometry if it's already in the \documentclass options). Thus you have specified a text width of 210mm, but also left and right margins of ...

Yes, memoir is ideal for a humanities thesis. I am using it for mine. The memoir class incorporates the functions of a large number of commonly used packages to provide a more consistent interface, and is designed to be easy to customize. So instead of loading a dozen possibly conflicting packages---geometry to change margins, and setspace to change line ...

From the memoir manual: The memoir class is an attempt to integrate some of the more design-related packages with the LaTeX book class.[...] The memoir class effectively incorporates the facilties that are usually accessed by using external packages. In most cases the class code is new code reimplementing package functionalities. IMHO is a ...

Your example code does not make an underfull box, so I don't understand the "P.S." The equation is a fraction over full, there is no general solution in such cases, you just have to adjust. Possibilities include giving variable names to subterms, or splitting the equation over two lines, but here one option is to hide the width of the subscript to the sum, ...

You are apparently using biblatex, so you can simply use \printbibliography[heading=bibnumbered]

From the memoir basic user manual (section 6.2 SECTIONAL DIVISIONS, p 74): A \section command restarts the numbering of any \subsections from one. For most of the divisions the <title> is put on the page where the command was issued. The \book, \part and \chapter commands behave a little differently. The \book and \part commands are ...

If you set the \footmarkwidth to zero and add space before the footmark everything aligns quite nicely: Here is the code: \documentclass{memoir} \usepackage{lipsum} \footmarkstyle{\hspace{\parindent}#1.\,} % indent the footmark \setlength{\footmarkwidth} {0em} \setlength{\footmarksep} {0em} \setlength{\footparindent} {\parindent} \begin{document} ...

You shouldn't call setspace with memoir (but it's innocuous, as the class doesn't load it to begin with). If you really want such a big interline space, then it should be the same in titles, in my opinion, but it's possible to do how you'd like. \documentclass[9pt,draft,twoside,openright,showtrims]{memoir} \usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amsfonts} ...

Simply use \nobibintoc after \printbibheading but before the \printbibliography commands: \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{memoir} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{lipsum} % just for dummy text \usepackage[notes, backend=biber, bookpages=false]{biblatex-chicago} \usepackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib} @book{book1, address = ...

Since you are using memoir you should use its facilities to layout your page. I am not very familiar with this class but the documentation seems extremely helpful so I'd suggest looking through it. A rather selective reading suggests the following: \documentclass[11pt, a4paper, oneside, oldfontcommands]{memoir} \setlrmarginsandblock{25mm}{25mm}{*} ...

memoir uses the chapter page style for the first page of every chapter. The chapter page style is considered a alias of the plain page style. In order to modify an alias page style, you first have to make a true copy of the page style: \copypagestyle{chapter}{plain} The above makes a true copy of the plain page style and calls it the chapter page style. ...

This is due because geometry calculates on his own the missing dimensions for your document. It complains when you specify too many parameters, thus resulting in an Over-specification warning. This code should work fine: \documentclass[11pt,oneside,oldfontcommands]{memoir} \usepackage[a4paper,left=25mm,top=25mm,textwidth=160mm,textheight=249.7mm]{geometry} ...

You may make \rightmark use \topmark instead of \firstmark, but things will go wrong if a section starts at the top of a page. You can fix this (not guaranteed to work in any situation, though) by emitting a mark als before the section: \documentclass[12pt,a4paper,onecolumn,oneside,final]{memoir} \usepackage[textwidth=10cm,textheight=22cm]{geometry} ...

In memoir you can create a new environment that behaves like figure but has its own table of contents and numbering scheme. \documentclass{memoir} \newcommand{\sator}{Sator arepo tenet opera rotas} \renewcommand{\listtablename}{Tables} \renewcommand{\listfigurename}{Figures} \newcommand{\mapname}{Map} \newcommand{\listmapname}{Maps} ...

If you want something like this: Then just modify the style of the footmark as described in the memoir manual (235-36): \footmarkstyle{#1.\,} And put it somewhere in the preamble of your document: \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{memoir} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib} ...

Following the suggestion in How to change the name of document elements like "Figure", "Contents", "Bibliography" etc.?, you need to add the new \chaptername to the greek captions using \addto\captionsgreek{\renewcommand*{\chaptername}{KEFALAIO}} Here is a minimal example showing the adjustment: \documentclass{memoir} ...

If i understood you right, the following should do what you want. No matter if you are running memoir, book or scrreprt ;-) The final composed list isn't a classical listof and don't recognizes KOMAs listof-feature nor memoirs listof<...>* feature. There will always be a toc-entry. \begin{filecontents}{lofigsandmaps.sty} ...

Advanced classes like memoir and the KOMA-script classes define commands for nearly every possible instance to hook into. In your case this is \chapterheadstart. You can of course renew the command after defining, but it would be certainly more clean to use this in the \makechapterstyle definition. \documentclass{memoir} % \def\@chapapp{Chapter}% ...

This solution avoids the need to load caption and thereby retains the facilities of memoir. At least, it seems so although my testing has been somewhat minimal. Uncomment/comment the appropriate line to achieve formatting with or without the dot, as the mood takes you. \documentclass[oneside,article,12pt,danish]{memoir} \newsubfloat{figure} ...

The memoir manual says on page 156 that the \book, \part and \chapter numbers are typeset inside a box of certain fixed withs In order to get a fixed width after the part number, we have to get rid of the box and insert some whitespace (1em in this example) after the number. We do so by renewing \partnumberlinebox: ...

memoir provides it own facilities to place headers and footers. Using fancyhdr will only break stuff. Please be aware of that. If you really want to use fancyhdr, you need to use \pagestyle{fancy}, but since this package (fancyhdr) uses commands, that are obsolete for 20 years now, you need to enable the memoir option oldfontcommands. Here is the proper way ...

It can be done by expanding on this idea: Memoir has hooks to add code into the .toc file. We use this to add a callback at strategic points. These callcacks are then altered to control the toc depth at certain points in the TOC it self. \documentclass{memoir} \counterwithin{chapter}{book} \renewcommand\thechapter{\arabic{chapter}} \cftinsertcode{PRE-1}{ ...
