This isn't a fix. Imho regarding the experimental status of the code it is more important to find the problems currently. So I looked in the l3galley code to find all redefinitions of standard LaTeX/TeX commands which perhaps could matter and setup a test environment. With it you can restore the "old" meanings of the commands. Attention: The commands ...

To align lines on different pages (or columns) you need to typeset "on a grid". (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grid_%28graphic_design%29). That's rather difficult in LaTeX. There are a lot of irregular spaces and line heights which don't fit on a grid, e.g. sectioning commands, display math, lists. But in your case where only normal text is on the page ...

This answer assumes you are using the report or book document classes. i.e. \documentclass[...]{report} or \documentclass[...]{book} is at the top of your document. The Easy Way The easiest way to achieve what you are looking for is to use the expanded form of the chapter command: % ## Expanded \chapter command ## % Format: ...

According to the user guide of the memoir package, the following default font sizes (in points) are provided: 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 17, 20, 25, 30, 36, 48, and 60. For each of these sizes, a file called mem?.clo ìs provided, where ? can be 9, 10, 11, etc and clo stands for "class option". One needs to set the document class option extrafontsizes for font sizes ...

This is a little confusing to do. Remember that class options are not dynamic, so since 13pt is not hardcoded into the class, memoir does not recognize it. Instead we need to use the provided interface (page 3-4 in the memoir manual). Firstly you need to place your mem13.clo in a place where LaTeX can find it. For testing it is easiest to just palce it in ...

While waiting for more information, a possible solution could be: \documentclass{memoir} \usepackage[most]{tcolorbox} \usepackage[spanish]{babel} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{lmodern} \begin{document} \begin{tcolorbox}[sharp corners, notitle, colback=white] Páginas: 316 \begin{enumerate} \item Parapsicológica ...

First, you need to reset the macro \figurename. Its default value, if the chemstyle package is loaded, is "Fig.". You should add \AtBeginDocument{\renewcommand\figurename{Figure}} to the preamble to change the macro to, you guessed it, "Figure". Second, you need to provide the option varioref=false when loading the chemstyle package: ...

In any LaTeX class, \title, \author, and \date actually set the values of internal macros (\@title, \@author, \@date in article class). The class comes with \maketitle predefined to typeset the values of those commands in a particular format. Memoir gives you an advantage by adding a titlingpage environment, and by making the values of the title, author, ...

This is dependent on the length within \parskip. If it has some glue, it may stretch to better-fit the page. In your case, I see > 0.0pt plus 1.0pt > l.22 \showthe\parskip implying that your \parskip could be anything from 0pt to 1pt, which leads to what you see as a mis-alignment within the baselines. Is this normal? Sure. It allows for some ...

The title of the table of contents is set by macro \@tocmaketitle in memoir. This macro can be redefined to remove the title including the space: \documentclass[oneside,11pt]{memoir} % Hyperref \usepackage[colorlinks=true]{hyperref} \hypersetup{citecolor=red} \renewcommand{\thesection}{\arabic{section}} \usepackage{titletoc} \titlecontents*{section} % ...

With the second symbol is easy. Instead of pgfornament include it with \includegraphics command: (I've downloaded .png and called it mysymbol) \documentclass[14pt,twoside]{memoir} \usepackage{lipsum,tikz} \chapterstyle{thatcher} \renewcommand{\printchaptername}{% \centering \begin{tikzpicture}[every node/.style={inner sep=0pt}] ...

I've just used the image provided by the O.P. and placed it in a node, then added another node that shows the text. \documentclass[oneside]{memoir} \usepackage{tikz} \usepackage{graphicx} \begin{document} \begin{center} \begin{tikzpicture}[scale=1] \node[inner sep=1pt] (MYCENTER) at (0,0) {\includegraphics[scale=1]{adriano.png}}; \node[inner ...

In memoir changing the \headheight will not affect the position of the baseline of the header text. Increasing the \headheight allows more vertical space for the text. Changing \headheight will only alter the spacing between the top of the page and the baseline of the header.

In general, this is a little bit tricky, as there so many things influencing the size, but for this case, where the ticklabels on the y-axis are the only thing causing problems, you could try adding 'extraAxisOptions','yticklabel style={text width= width("$-0.6$")},align=right}' the matlab2tikz calls, where $-0.6$ is the widest ticklabel. As a ...

The memoir class does provide means for a glossary, using the \glossary command and displaying it with \printglossary, however, there's no \gls or related command that does display the glossary item inline, i.e. outside of the glossary itself. I suggest to use the glossaries package and run the makeglossaries script after compilation (pdflatex foo.tex ; ...

Warning: The preamble is a little bit strange and I don't address issues other than the main problem: \nofiles If \nofiles is used, no .aux file is generated from the beginning (or if \nofiles is added between two runs, the .aux file won't be updated. As such either .toc is not generated at all or it is not updated. Running with \nofiles right from the ...

First of all, your use of \renewcommand{\chaptername}{}% Remove a string "Chapter" for this chapter is incorrect, as there is still a space remaining as part of the chapter name printing macro. Instead you're looking to redefine \printchaptername to something like \renewcommand{\printchaptername}{\centering{\chapnumfont\thechapter}} Now, for setting ...

In my point of view there's no need to use the titlingpage environment: Just use \maketitle in conjunction with \thispagestyle{empty}. I also cleaned up the \maketitle command a little bit! \documentclass[14pt,twoside,showtrims,a5paper,extrafontsizes]{memoir} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{blindtext} \title{MY TITLE} ...

There is no need to load the caption package for changing the numbering. It suffices to use \renewcommand{\thetable}{\arabic{chapter}-\arabic{table}} with or without caption, even in memoir: \documentclass{memoir} \renewcommand{\thetable}{\arabic{chapter}-\arabic{table}} \begin{document} \chapter{A chapter} \begin{table} \caption{A table} ...

Assuming you're using one of the "standard" document classes (i.e., article, report or book) or a document class that's based on one of the standard classes, you could achieve your objective by adding the following instructions to the preamble: \usepackage{sectsty} \chapterfont{\centering}

The \tableofcontents is set like any other chapter under memoir and uses the chapter-related settings for spacing. Specifically, the \aftertoctitle macro governs what happens after the toc title. The default is to match \afterchaptertitle, so we can update this to suit our needs: \documentclass{memoir} \usepackage{blindtext} \newlength{\aftertocskip} ...

OK, I don't know what happened. But apparently the code that I used in my question: \begin{sidecaption}[short caption]{long caption} does work. I must not have compiled the code enough times. Possibly it takes 3 times - at least with my system. I had done it two times when I posted the question.

Unfortunaly there is no MWE in the question. With memoir you should use the header and footer commands of this class: \documentclass{memoir} \usepackage{blindtext} \usepackage{xcolor} \colorlet{ared}{red} \pagestyle{ruled} \makeevenhead{ruled}{\leftmark}{}{\rightmark} \makeoddhead{ruled}{\rightmark}{}{\leftmark} \makeevenfoot{ruled}{}{\thepage}{} ...

The key here is using the pass feature of the geometry package that will preserve the underlying page setup of the memoir document class, while providing access to geometry routines. Thus, I save the memoir page setup initially using a \savegeometry. I then create a \newgeometry with no margins and do what needs to be done on that page. Finally, I restore ...

See, if this gives what you asking for: \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{memoir} \usepackage{ragged2e} \usepackage{lipsum} \renewcommand{\sideparfont}{\RaggedRight\footnotesize}% <-- corrected \sideparmargin{outer} \begin{document} \sidepar{\begin{Spacing}{0.8} \lipsum[2] \end{Spacing}}% <-- added Spacing from Memoir \lipsum[1-2] \end{document} ...
