For a lack of the actual code, i cannot really tell why this spacing is introduced, but here a solution using KOMA-only methods. \documentclass[english]{scrbook} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{babel} \usepackage{blindtext} \KOMAoption{chapterprefix}{true} \renewcommand*\raggedchapter{\raggedleft} \addtokomafont{chapter}{\large} ...

A bit alternative approach: \documentclass{scrreprt} \let\raggedchapter\centering \setkomafont{chapterprefix}{\normalsize\mdseries} \KOMAoption{chapterprefix}{true} \renewcommand{\chapterheadmidvskip}{% \par\nobreak\vskip -.1cm {\rule{.9\textwidth}{.5pt}}\par% } \RedeclareSectionCommand[beforeskip=0pt,afterskip=8\baselineskip]{chapter} ...

I found the error, but now I just feel really stupid! It's a template I borrowed from a friend, and in the code (where I did not suspect it to be) I found \renewcommand{\subsubsection}{\@startsection{subsubsection}{3}{-2cm} I have no idea why this is desirable, but never the less, the problem is solved.

Update My original answer (see below) works with both MiKTeX2.9 and TL 2015 but not with 2014 (but you can load fixltx2e to get it to work as @Johannes mentioned in a comment). So here is another suggestion. \documentclass[english]{scrreprt} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{babel} \usepackage{blindtext} \KOMAoption{chapterprefix}{true} ...

This just uses a \section*{\ackname} command to insert a heading and an itemize list into the document. Since there is no real information on formatting requirements, I kept it simple. (I would not use it this way, of course, let alone the names ;-)) \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,oneside]{memoir} \usepackage{blindtext} ...

It doesn't seem like a good idea. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{titlesec,graphicx} \titleformat{\section} {\Large\bfseries} {\thesection} {1em} {\resizetitle} \newcommand{\resizetitle}[1]{\resizebox{\sectionwidth}{!}{#1}} \newlength{\sectionwidth} \AtBeginDocument{% \setlength{\sectionwidth}{.3\textwidth}% } \begin{document} \section{Abc} ...

Because you are loading scrlayer-scrpage: Remove the (unnecessary) redefinitions of \sectionmark and \subsectionmark and use the possibilities of scrlayer-scrpage. \usepackage{scrlayer-scrpage} \automark{chapter}% -> section does not rewrite \markright \clearpairofpagestyles \renewcommand{\chaptermarkformat}{} \addtokomafont{pagehead}{\small} ...

1

If you're not using any sectional packages, then you can patch \@sect - used by all (unstarred) sectional commands to set the heading: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{etoolbox} \makeatletter \patchcmd{\@sect}% <cmd> {\@xsect}% <search> {\label{sec:#8}\@xsect}% <replace> {}{}% <successs><failure> \makeatother ...

I think \automark[section]{section} is the correct command, which will 'break' the standard section|subsection style of KOMA scrartcl class. \documentclass[twoside]{scrartcl} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage[header,title,titletoc]{appendix} \usepackage[automark,headsepline]{scrlayer-scrpage} \pagestyle{scrheadings} \begin{document} ...

The following example remembers the section count in the .aux file. A counter abs@chapter is used to identify the chapter. Thus also starred or unnumbered chapters are supported. \section is redefined to write a line in the .aux file, which increases the number of sections for the current chapter. Also starred \section commands are supported. In the next ...

This is a quick solution with the cntperchap package (I am quite familar with its author ;-)) The key is to register counters which should be tracked on a per chapter base, here it is the section counter. Then use the \GetStoredCounterValue[chapter number]{section} macro to get the number of sections in the relevant chapter. This does not print the number ...

A simple code with titlesec. You can play with \titlespacing: the first argument increases the left margin, the second is vertical space before the heading,and the third vertical space after the heading. \documentclass[11pt, oneside]{book} \usepackage{showframe} \usepackage{titlesec} ...

1

The vertical spacing is controlled using \vspace*. You can set th value to your needs, negative values are also allowed, moving the text up on the page. A negative space of 105pt gives you the following output, though i cannot recommend to do that. \documentclass[11pt, oneside]{book} \usepackage{showframe,blindtext} \makeatletter ...

1

The entire titlesec module discourages the use of starred version of sectional units. As such, their usage seems may cause unexpected/unwanted results anyway. In this case, however, you're better off issuing a manual \sectionmark{<title>} to update the display in the headers. The process can be automated with the help of xparse: ...

The following is just an example that gives the general idea. It contains a patch of the \chapter command that is suitable for the standard book class; for other document classes, the patch could (and in general will) be different. Of course, etoolbox's \patchcmd could be used instead. \documentclass[a4paper]{book} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} ...

Edit My first definition of \subimportlevel (see below) imports subfiles in a group to protect \mycurrentlevel. In this new solution, I use multiple macros (\@currrentlevel0, \@currentlevel1...) so no group is required. \makeatletter \newcounter{currentimportdepth} \setcounter{currentimportdepth}{0} \newcommand{\subimportlevel}[2]{ ...

In addition to this answer by Hendrik Vogt, I'd like to add that using \usepackage[explicit]{titlesec} and \titleformat{\subsection} {} {} {} {\raisebox{-0.5\baselineskip}[0pt][0pt]% \parbox{textwidth}{\fontsize{14}{16}\it\thesubsection\hspace{1ex}#1}} % raise the title will give the opportunity to use ...

Here is a suggestion using scrlayer to define a new pagestyle. \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[english]{babel} \usepackage{tikz}% loads also graphicx, xcolor \usepackage{lmodern} \usepackage[top=1.25in, bottom=1.25in, left=1.25in, right=1.25in]{geometry} ...

Never use " for typing in quotes. \section{Source Publication Title'' [authored by Tom, Dick and Harry] Published in 2000} You see that  is used for the opening quotes and '' (two apostrophes) is used for the closing quotes. There's no need to escape [ and ], because they are printable characters so you can and should input them normally. If ...

You can define the chapter head for unnumbered chapter quite similar, but need to leave out the chapter number line. I added \documentclass{memoir} \usepackage{blindtext} \makeatletter \def\thickhrulefill{\leavevmode \leaders \hrule height 1pt \hfill \kern \z@} \def\@makeschapterhead#1{% \vspace*{60\p@}% {\parindent \z@ \centering \reset@font ...

This works without much ado. Typesetting square brackets can be done with [ and ] without any further requirements. $and$ are used for the display math environment, which was formerly written $$...$$ (being deprecated now!) Does it look nice? No! \documentclass{article} %\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} not really needed \begin{document} ...

Using \begin{table} alone is equivalent to \begin{table}[tbp] Change all occurrences of \begin{table} in BilagC3.tex into \begin{table}[!htbp]

The epigraph package uses a horrible hack for realizing \dropchapter: it adds a vertical space in \@chapapp, which is not used when \chapter* is executed. Here's a version that's specific for book and report (other classes may have different \@makechapterhead and \@makeschapterhead commands), but it works for both starred and unstarred \chapter commands. ...

With article class as you specified in the MWE, one can employ titlesec. \documentclass{article} \renewcommand{\thesection}{\Roman{section}} \usepackage{titlesec} \titleformat{\section} {\normalfont\Large\bfseries}{Exercise~\thesection}{1em}{} \begin{document} \section{Exercise} % First exercise \section{Exercise} % Second exercise \section{Exercise} % ...

The relevant part of the \subsection heading is (see macro \@sect latex.ltx for example) \begingroup #6{% \@hangfrom{\hskip #3\relax\@svsec}% \interlinepenalty \@M #8\@@par}% \endgroup If this should not appear when the section level is subsection, it could be patched to use a \ifstrequal for testing if #1 is equal to subsection. I added the ...

This patches the \@sect command and uses a conditional to check whether the first parameter of \@sect is subsection. It applies \ul from soul package then to perform the formatting. I assumed the standard class article for this -- it does not work with scrartcl etc. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{soul} \usepackage{xpatch} \makeatletter ...

You can adjust the way \section works and make \section* act the same way \section does, only with some minor modifications: \documentclass{book} \usepackage{bookmark} \hypersetup{bookmarksnumbered=true} \usepackage{xparse} \makeatletter \renewcommand{\@seccntformat}[1]{\csname the#1\endcsname\space}% Just for this example \let\oldsection\section ...

There is a bunch of ways of adding \chapter* like titles to the ToC. I changed the \@makeschapterhead{} command for automatic entries to the ToC. The \\ has to be protected, but in my opinion, it should not used at all in a chapter title. \documentclass[14pt,a4paper,twoside,spanish,openany]{book} \usepackage[spanish,activeacute]{babel} ...

Footnotes seem to work as intended. When you load the KOMA-class scrextend you can use \deffootnote to define the footnote space. Here's an example on how to use it: \deffootnote[.5em]{0em}{1.5em}{\makebox[.5em][l]{\textsuperscript{\bf \thefootnotemark}}} (source)

Class with chapters If the class contains chapters and the "3" in "3.6" means the chapter number: \documentclass{report} \setcounter{chapter}{3} \setcounter{section}{5} \begin{document} \tableofcontents \section{First section} \subsection{First subsection} \subsubsection{First subsubsection} \section{Second section} \section{Third section} \section{Forth ...

Principally it's possible to set the counters of chapter andsection` accordingly, but it will look a little bit strange. Since the section counter is reset each time the chapter counter is increased, the setting of section counter must be done after \chapter is called. \documentclass{report} \usepackage{blindtext} \setcounter{chapter}{2} ...

1

\renewcomand\thechapter{3.\arabic{chapter}} \setcounter{chapter}{5} in the preamble should make the first \chapter 3.6

0

Or the simple option - use the * version. You have to do it with each section/subsection etc. but many environments have an option where * suppresses the numbering. E.g. \section*{Introduction}.

2

That code is aimed to just do the removal from sections. However, in order to remove numbering, the easiest way is to set secnumdepth to 0: \setcounter{secnumdepth}{0} I'll show also how to improve the code you were given for doing several tests. \makeatletter \renewcommand\@seccntformat[1]{\csname prepend@#1\endcsname} ...

6

Since you don't want numbering, use \setcounter{secnumdepth}{0} \documentclass{article} \setcounter{secnumdepth}{0} \begin{document} \section{A section} \subsection{A sub section} \subsubsection{A sub sub section} \end{document}

3

You have to nest the definition in this way: \makeatletter \def\@seccntformat#1{% \expandafter\ifx\csname c@#1\endcsname\c@section\else \expandafter\ifx\csname c@#1\endcsname\c@subsection\else \expandafter\ifx\csname c@#1\endcsname\c@subsubsection\else \csname the#1\endcsname\quad \fi\fi\fi} \makeatother MWE \documentclass{article} ...

You have code in your preamble which sets a frame the moment, you call a section. You should therefore nor put a section inside a frame here. Kind of doubled: % arara: pdflatex \documentclass{beamer} \AtBeginSection[] {% \begin{frame} \frametitle{Sommaire} \end{frame} } \begin{document} %\begin{frame} \section[]{Cadre du projet et l'étude ...

You should get a warning: Package hyperref Warning: bookmark level for unknown level4 defaults to 0. That means unknown section levels (level4, level5, ...) are treated with value 0 (chapter). The additional bookmark levels can be defined the following way: \@namedef{toclevel@level4}{4} \@namedef{toclevel@level5}{5} ... Or inside your loop: ...

I guess you want the number to be as high as two lines of text; here's a possibility independent of the font size (I used \Huge). The number is in the margin. Note that showframe and lipsum are not necessary; the former is used just to show the boundaries of the various parts of the page. \documentclass{report} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} ...

Here's a solution using some more appropriate low level commands - but it's a bit fiddly, so titlesec might be a better way to do it. \documentclass{report} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{cmbright} \makeatletter \def\@makechapterhead#1{\bgroup \moveright-1in\vbox to 0pt{\hbox{}\vskip4pt\fontsize{86}{68}\selectfont\thechapter\par\vss}% ...

This should work for most cases: Edit Meanwhile there is a MWE by the OP. Probably, the OP forgot to compile twice. \documentclass{report} \renewcommand{\thesection}{\arabic{section}} \begin{document} \tableofcontents \section{First} \label{firstsection} \subsection{First section} \label{firstsubsection} \end{document}

With xparse it is straight-forward to condition between starred versions and optional arguments. As such, the following redefinition of \section automatically inserts the appropriate starred version in the ToC: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{xparse} \let\oldsection\section \RenewDocumentCommand{\section}{s o m}{% \IfBooleanTF{#1} {% \section* ...

I derived a simpler solution from this code: Beamer-Warsaw: Reduced No. of subsections in title Except for the first page I get the three section titles right. If you dont mind only the first two titles showing up, just comment out the headline-command code for the first page. \documentclass{beamer} \usetheme{Warsaw} \makeatletter % A new section ...

I think there is no need to print the section number twice. Hence I would change the third argument of the \titleformat command to {\llap{\colorbox{black}{\makebox[3em][r]{\textcolor{white}{\thesection}}}\hspace{1em}}} and use {0pt} as fourth argument to align the section title with the text body. Code: ...
