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

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.)

\linebreak works fine. But about \pagebreak: you see you entered the command after "pleasure." but the break actually occurs after "To take a".

comment linebreak and pagebreak wherever I want with justified margins
@egreg oh, ok. after swtching to scracrtl your suggestion with \linebreak is what I am looking for! Thanks. \pagebreak, however, does not break the pager where the command is but only somewhere in the line where the command is.

comment biblatex: change name of author according to language?
Are there any news about biblatex 3.0/biber 2.0? Or is there a release date already on the horizon?

comment Adobe Acrobat's markup and annotate trough LaTeX?
I accepted this primarily because it seems to be the simplest solution. Another more elaborate alternative, as jfbu pointed out in his comment, is the package pdfcomment.
