the way I see myself?

self-educating wherever possible, reaching for the magical 'I can explain it, thus I must have understood it'. Loads of interests and too little time:

computing:

  • beginning LaTex and HTML composer, aspiring to learn coding; currently learning the basics in Python
  • Linux (Debian (using), Fedora (later))


non-computing sphere:

  • visual storytelling in photography (still and moving images)
  • huge admirer of stop motion animation
  • storytelling: theatre, books, poems, street art,…
  • graphics design: photography, working with GIMP and UFRaw
  • music? Feed me!!!
    Americana, electronica, West African guitar music, chiptune and 8bit music, country, female choirs from Eastern Europe, oldschool punk, Deltablues, traditional Korean music, black metal, Krautrock, … I try to keep my ears wide open (too)

next goals: getting a blog up and running (again), starting a mixtape⁄podcast feed, get much deeper into coding and finally getting the LPIC Level 1 examn nailed!

comment \pageheight just inside layout package?
oging off topic here - but then it outlines with my main problemin researching: not everyone who writes beautiful code with maximum efficiency is able to document too. People writing manuals with a solid knowledge of the topic are even more rare. An answer like this stands out as an example. At least for me.

the \lineskiplimit did all the magic. I must have overread this (quite some times).

comment linespacing without packages
this helped a lot! Just one thing: I can't get to negative values. As far as I understand it, I can't get below a level of 0.8. According to the calculating sceme, where the value is based upon the font size level and the distance between baselines (fontsize:10pt baselineskip:12pt thus: ratio:1.2), this should be the limit (-20%; i.e. 0.8). Is there a way to go beyond this level or is this the limit. As far as I understand your very helpful .tex file, you define a 'custom command' and alter the value. Is there a way to do this with line-spread itself or just with such a workaround?

That will help me a lot at a later time, but thank you very much in advance for your effort and in the name of those who already fully understand all this code. Really, thanks! I'm a newbie to LaTex, loving what I found so far and looking forward to what comes. This here is a huge promise :)
