The difference between \textellipsis and \ldots is, that the latter can also be used in math mode. It is defined as (from latex.ltx): \DeclareRobustCommand{\dots}{% \ifmmode\mathellipsis\else\textellipsis\fi} \let\ldots\dots Therefore, the commands produce the same output in text mode. Package ellipsis makes the space configurable via the macro ...


\textellipisis is defined via \DeclareTextCommandDefault{\textellipsis}{% .\kern\fontdimen3\font .\kern\fontdimen3\font .\kern\fontdimen3\font} So by default places three . from the current font but that is only a default, it is an encoding specific command and if the encoding supplies a character eg U+2026 in unicode encodings, then that may be ...


Without seeing what problem you are having we have to guess, but the \left and \right's need to be balanced either side of the & alignment characters: The following works fine: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsmath} \begin{document} \begin{equation} \begin{aligned} ....\left( x\right.&=\left.43\right)\\ ....\left( ...


In the mathtoolsdocumentation, you a trick that allows for line breaks within delimiters, using the \DeclarePairedDelimiters command and a trick by S├ębastien Gouezei (3.6.1 of the doc). Demo: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{mathtools} \usepackage{lmodern} \newcommand\MTkillspecial[1]{% helper macro \bgroup ...


instead of redefining the whole command yourself also consider using xpatch: \usepackage{xpatch} \xpatchcmd\cventry{,}{}{}{} this line replaces the first occurence in the macro text of , by the empty string - i.e. removes it. Here is also a nice documentation of how the command works.


You can terminate a line that starts with \left( by means of \right.. In the following line you will then probably have to type \left. to match the closing parenthesis \right)


Use \right. on the first line and \left. on the second, for example \begin{equation} \begin{aligned} 2x+y =& \left( \int_0^x dt+ \right. \\ & \left. y+x\vphantom{\int_0^x dt} \right) \end{aligned} \end{equation} Note that, if there is something very large on the first line, and not on the second, that the size of the brackets may not be the ...
