comment How do I manually split a paragraph without \afterpage?
@Mico Apparently, memoir is not the only class affected but KOMAScript as well. I just stumbled on this question: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/139834/…

@cslstr Looks promising but when I pass \picturepage to \AtBeginShipoutNext, I get a Not in outer par mode error :/

comment How do I manually split a paragraph without \afterpage?
@Mico it seems that changing geometry in an \afterpage is to blame. This is a relatively new feature of the geometry package so maybe nobody noticed this bug yet. \afterpage{\newgeometry{textheight=\paperheight,textwidth=\paperwidth}\null\res‌​toregeometry} will already produce a similar behaviour, adding a \clearpage after \restoregeometry will mess the page up exactly as my package does.

@Mico I agree, it is. Unfortunately, memoir is so huge that it's probably hard to pinpoint what part exactly is to blame.

maybe I should remove the afterpage here because it breaks the whole thing with memoir, see http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/180290/how-do-i-manually-split-a-paragraph-without-afterpage

tiny fix, sorry I can't mark this as "don't bump" :/

comment How can I reproduce this beautiful table of contents?
I just want to remark that for most theses this structure is too simple. This is clearly the TOC of a book that is a collection of chapters by different authors so the requirements are different. But if you're sure that nobody would ever want to look up the page number of a particular section or even subsection then sure, go for it :)

comment Too long website as footnote results in `Overfull \hbox`
I would only do that if you're really really sure that the reader won't be irritated by the hyphen at the end of a line (like when you explain the line breaking behaviour at one point in the document). I think the author of the url package made a really smart choice when he decided not to allow line breaks after hyphens.

@RStudent You probably also get the "underfull \hbox" error as you did for your manual fix. The sad truth is that there just aren't enough opportunities for line breaks to typeset this with a fixed line width. URLs are notoriously tricky here. What I would do in your case is to set the whole footnote as \raggedright or \RaggedRight (from the ragged2e package ... shouldn't do much of a different here).

comment How to autorotate pdflscape landscape pages when n-upping
I'm sorry but I'd rather not share my original document at this point in time. However, if you just build the MWE I added to the question with pdflatex, you should have a good toy example that contains all that's necessary.

Ok, I seem to struggle to make myself cleary. I added a MWE to my question, including pictures. Pictures always help, right? :)

comment How to autorotate pdflscape landscape pages when n-upping
I want all pages to have a portrait orientation, regardless of their orientation in the original document. So the brute force approach would be to split the document into individual pages, detect their orientation, rotate them 90 degrees anti-clockwise when they are in landscape, cat them back together again and 2-up them. I'm hoping there is a much easier way, though.

Thanks. However, this doesn't behave any differently than my command line for me. It doesn't rotate individual pages.
