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. ...

Too big for a comment. As Egreg says you need to show us an example of this. This MWE works just fine \documentclass[a4paper]{memoir} \usepackage{etoolbox} \begin{document} \def\do#1{\thesheetsequence\newpage} \docsvlist{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9} \end{document} I'm using etoolbox to give me a loop to produce several pages bidi is a bit of a beast. In this ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

not sure, but to my knowledge Koma-Script ("A bundle of versatile classes and packages") is meant to be used as a bundled suite, meaning you should also use a koma-document-class (instead of memoir) and also probably not the geometry package, see scrguide for further information. (maybe including scrbase would suffice, but you either want to use koma or you ...

So, for this document I will switch from memoir to article and use \section's. Now I can not see any other option .(

Changing the \checkandfixthelayout algorithm, as daleif suggested, took care of the problem. In ended up using \checkandfixthelayout[fixed], which is described in the "Laying out the page" section in the manual.

There is a logical error in the oneside placement part. This works better \makeatletter \renewcommand*{\m@mscapcheckregside}{% \if@twoside \checkoddpage \ifnum\m@mscapmarg<\@ne% % left \scapmarglefttrue \else \ifnum\m@mscapmarg=\@ne% % right \scapmargleftfalse \else ...

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 ...

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 ...

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} ...

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 ...

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]% ...

An easy solution, but perhaps not failsafe: Place a \linelabel{start:#1} at the begin of the enclosed #2 Place a \linelabel{end:#1} at the end of the enclosed #2 Use \getrefnumber from refcount package and extract the line numbers. In principle \lineref would do, but this does not yield expandable numbers, so the comparison will fail. I did not add ...

Since you want complete freedom to move your elements, I'd suggest you to place them inside TikZ \nodes. In the exmaple below I first placed the node with the name and the information and then located the other two elements (the images) with respect to this node, but, of course, you are now free to select what goes first and where each element should appear. ...
