Add a pair of brackets around the colon, and put type inside a \text command. Alternatively, you can use \colon which looks better, in my opinion: $ \begin{array}{l} s: \text{type}\\ s{:}\text{type} \\ s\colon \text{type} \end{array} $

The colon : is declared by LaTeX as a binary relation, which means it is separated from ordinary symbols by a thick mathematical space. The \colon command makes a punctuation symbol, so no space before it and a medium math space after it. However amsmath slightly changes colon to have some space before it and some more than a punctuation symbol after it. ...

The problem is the space in the following line: \renewbibmacro*{date+extrayear}{\iffieldundef{\thefield{datelabelsource}year}{}{\printtext[parens]{ \iffieldnum{edition}{\printfield[superedition]{edition}\global\clearfield{edition}}{} \iffieldsequal{year}{\thefield{datelabelsource}year}{\printdateextralabel}{\printfield{labelyear} \printfield{extrayear}}...

Yes, the length you need to modify is \skip\footins: % My standard header for TeX.SX answers: \documentclass[a4paper]{article} % To avoid confusion, let us explicitly % declare the paper format. \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} % Not always necessary, but recommended. % End of standard header. What follows pertains to the ...

Like this: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{mathtools} \begin{document} \begin{flalign*} E & = \times(\times a^{3}b^{2}c^{5})\times (\times a^{5}b^{6}c^{11})\div (\times a^{4}b^{3}c^{15}). & \\ & = \times a^{3}\times b^{2}\times c^{5}\times a^{5}\times b^{6}\times c^{11}\div a^{4}\div b^{3}\div c^{15};\, % \...

Like this: Since you didn't provide any information about your "panel" I assume, that beamer is document class. However, solution can be relatively easy adopted to any document class: \begin{frame}[fragile] \begin{figure} \renewcommand{\tabularxcolumn}[1]{m{#1}} \setlength\tabcolsep{3pt} \begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{XXX} \multirow{2}*[-1.5ex]{\...

If you are going to use this for other things, may be the best would be to make a macro \newcommand*\type[1]{#1\mathord{:}\textnormal{type}} $\type{s}$

Several solutions: If you're using \begin{figure}[H] as @egreg suggested, change [H] to [h]; Put \raggedbottom in the preamble. Downside of this is that there can be more space than you'd like at the bottom of the pages; Put \allowdisplaybreaks in the preamble. This will help if you have long formulas by breaking them across pages, which you may or may ...

The additional page is caused by the \thanks, try to use it within author{} \author{Shmuel (Seymour J.) Metz\thanks{I wish to thank Milton Parnes, the Mathematics department of Wayne State University and the Mathematics department of the State University of New York at Buffalo for guiding my mathematical education}}

If you really want to skip a line, use First line \medskip last line A larger space is obtained with \bigskip

You should not skip lines in this manner, you're better off using \vspace. however, to answer your question, what you have there actually is First line \newline ~ \newline last line The first newline does not have a line to end. so it should simply be First line ~\\ last line

I'm always using csquotes for quotations, it automatically inserts a small kern in such cases. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[english]{babel} \usepackage{csquotes} \MakeAutoQuote {„}{“} \begin{document} \enquote{Mary had a little \enquote{lamb}} % needs csquotes „Mary had a little „lamb““ %needs ...

With the current MWE, you could change the following macro in the class file: \newenvironment{rSection}[2]{ % 1st input argument - section name, 2nd input argument - relevant links. \sectionskip \MakeUppercase{{\bf #1}} \hfill {#2} % Section title and relevant links \sectionlineskip \hrule % Horizontal line } to: \newenvironment{rSection}[2]{% ...

I don't know why somebody would use a template for a cv, since you want changes anyway. I am really confused The following should do, what you want. I removed \usepackage[parfill]{parskip} from the class file, since it causes the behaviour. Instead, i simply changed the parindent to zero. That is ok for a CV document. I also changed the environment in ...

I find the math notation very strange. Anyway, you're using improperly \shortintertext and it's easier than that: \documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article} \usepackage{amsmath,mathtools} \usepackage{lipsum} \newcommand{\pad}{\hphantom{={}}} \begin{document} \lipsum*[2] \begin{flalign*} E&= \times(\times a^{3}b^{2}c^{5})\times (\times a^{5}b^{6}c^{11}) ...

Steven should take full credit; I add some considerations about the problem. The separator between initials and surname seems to be controversial and you may be requested to use a normal space instead of the thin space. So it's much better to define a macro that will take care of the issue: just changing its definition will modify the global behavior. ...

For multi-rows, you can try this \documentclass{article} \usepackage{array}% \begin{document} \begin{tabular}{c c} $f^{(n)}(x)$ & $f^{(n)}(0)$ \\[1cm] $-2e^{-x^{x^{x}}}$ & 0\\[1cm] $2x&\frac{x}{2}\\[1cm] . . . \end{tabular} \end{document}
