I am writing my Ph.D. thesis with LaTeX. As my thesis requires typesetting Arabic text, I was very glad to learn that LuaLaTeX can easily handle that. The questions and knowledge with regard to LaTeX I am primarily interested in surround:

  • LuaLaTeX
  • ledmac/ledpar
  • Biblatex
  • csquotes

I am using the following applications:

  • TeXShop
  • BibDesk

I am working in LaTeX with the following languages:

  • English/German/Latin
  • Arabic
  • Greek

Indeed, I was unsure whether or not the question really fits the scope of this site. In any case, however, it is somehow a question about best practice and handling large documents. Maybe there are tricks and hints that can be useful.

comment Lualatex and Syriac (initial, middle and final letters)
@holsten : THere seem to have been some development. Now it works (almost) perfectly. But some of the letters are still not correct, but now they are connected even though they shouldn't... Maybe with combined efforts and collaboration with the fontspec people, we could get this going. Are you still interested? (Your post is 2,5 years old)

The same here. My laptop did not create bbl files anymore. After clearing up the cache everything's fine again.

comment Making \cventry fields all raggedright instead of justified in moderncv
@DavidCarlisle : Ok right. I was mislead by the OP's images of your and Werner's suggestion and by the fact that I removed \endgraf from your solution, because I wanted to avoid the extra space your solution adds. But, as it seems, ¨raggedright does not work without an an ending paragraph, does it?

comment Making \cventry fields all raggedright instead of justified in moderncv
That with #7 does not seem to work in my case? The \small information below is still justified, isn't it? Moreover: what about the \cvitem-fields? (I know that wasn't part of the original question.)
