When you make the page style for the front matter, don't worry about the verso pages. They are easier dealt with separately. Completely blank pages are much easier than what you seemed initially to be asking for ;). I'm assuming you want at least two different heading page styles: one for the front matter and one for the main matter. If they don't need to ...

This will write notes from top to bottom using the entire right column. Page breaking is done using the aux file and \everypar. Needless to say, this approach will conflict with any package which uses \everypar (within the paracol environment). \documentclass{memoir} \usepackage{xcolor} \usepackage{paracol} \usepackage{lipsum} \newcommand{\darkmark}[1]% ...

The memoirclass provides automatically \book and \chapter divisions, so the main issue is setting up the formatting to the way you like them. Verses in the bible are functionally equivalent to sections, so you can use the \section for your verses. But since you can rename commands easily, you can create a \verse command that is \section underneath, and ...

You got three options depending on what changes to the layout you maybe want to make later: 1. Change only the title text In this case define \newcommand{\prayername}{Prayer} \newcommand{\practrefname}{Practical refelctions} and use them withe the desired sectioning command, e.g. \chapter{My Chapter (Way 1)} Text \section{Normal Section} Text ...

Put the caption inside threeparttable \documentclass[a4paper,11pt,oneside,openany,showtrims,strict,extrafontsizes]{memoir} \usepackage{tabulary,lipsum,threeparttable} \usepackage[font=small,labelfont=sc]{caption} \begin{document} \tableofcontents \newpage \listoffigures \chapter{Chapter one starts here} \section{Heading} \lipsum[4] \begin{table}[htb] ...

Something like this? \documentclass[oneside,11pt]{memoir} \usepackage{lmodern} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{alltt} \makeatletter \makeheadstyles{mysecs}{% \renewcommand\thesection{\arabic{section}}% \setsecnumformat{\csname the##1\endcsname.\quad}% \setbeforesecskip{-.01\onelineskip \@minus .01\onelineskip}% ...

I'd use here TikZ and the current page family of nodes extended by the tikzpagenodes package to position elements at absolute locations inside a page: \documentclass{memoir} \usepackage{tikzpagenodes} \usepackage{showframe} \usetikzlibrary{positioning,calc} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay,every node/.append style={inner ...

Aaron Turon created a beautiful thesis. His colophon: This document was typeset using LATEX, with a mixture of classicthesis developed by André Miede and tufte-latex, which is based on Edward Tufte’s Beautiful Evidence. The bibliography was processed by Biblatex. Robert Slimbach’s Minion Pro acts as both the text and display type-face. ...

Here's one way to do it: the idea is to define an appsouthall variant of the original southall style and then use the etoolbox package so the new style is used inside the appendices environment. The code: \documentclass{memoir} \usepackage{etoolbox} \usepackage{lipsum} \chapterstyle{southall} \renewcommand\cftappendixname{\appendixname~} \newlength\AppWd ...

The command \setfootnoterule is defined both by the class memoir and the package scrextend. Changing the class e.g. to scrbook seems to work fine.

The main problem with your code is that you are not using the built-in methods for separating the section heading from the stuff that goes into your TOC. But a standard sectioning command in has an optional argument for the TOC text, and memoir in fact has two optional arguments, one for the TOC text and one for the page header text. Since you are ...

In general: To reset arabic pagenumbering use \pagenumbering{arabic} which sets the next page number to 1. To set the pagenumber to 0 use \setcounter{page}{0} So for your case try: end of volume 1 \clearpage \pagenumbering{arabic} \setcounter{page}{0} start of volume 2 I think that starting your second volume with page number 0 will strike the reader ...

The height of the \sidebar is set to \textheight when the class is loaded. And, of course, a change in the geometry is accompanied with a change in \textheigth that doesn't transfer to the \sidebar. You can correct for this by resetting the \sidebar height to \textheight: \documentclass{memoir} \usepackage{geometry, lipsum} \begin{document} ...
