mcgafter noun

A makeshift instrument or tool (mechanical, electronic or otherwise) whereby one may gaff (poke, hook, hack) something to achieve the desired result. Works better when it gets attached to a mcgoerie*. Very common worldwide especially in parts of Africa where it has been known to be the tool of choice of even high level government officials for all governmental problems.


mcgoerie noun

A well designed tool similar in shape and function to a mcgafter* yet completely different in it's purpose. May also be used on it's own. Uses of this instrument are very rare and appears to only occur in the countries of Namibia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and South Africa, as well as where former residents of those countries have dispersed abroad.

@Marco: Thanks, that works perfectly. I misinterpreted the manual. I also had a 2007 copy floating around, instead of the new one.

Thanks. Try running it through XeLaTeX. I can't find a native \ifthesubsection or even a \ifsubsection command. Which manual are you refering to?

@Raphink: I'm not quite sure how to add the counter to the pagestyle to have it work for every book's first verse. The code I've posted in this question can be treated as open-source as far as I am concerned.

comment titlesec: toptitlemarks and bottitlemarks broken when \section not called explicitly
Further to the answer above: To automatically calculate when to use Gonzalo's \IndOne or \IndTwo commands I've used this code: \newlength{\myIndent} \settowidth{\myIndent}{\IndOne In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth.} \ifdimless{\the\myIndent} {\textwidth} {\IndOne In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth. \stepcounter{subsection} \subsection{}\IndOne And the earth was without form, and void;...} {\IndTwo In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth. \stepcounter{subsection} \subsection{} And the earth was without form, and void;...}

comment Customise Table of Contents header and heading
I found this in the KOMA-Script manual. \setkomafont{captionlabel}{\usekomafont{←􏰀 descriptionlabel}} But it is not clear to me how to actually change the font for the TOC heading.

comment Customise Table of Contents header and heading
The following produce a nicer look: \renewcommand{\contentsname}{Table of Contents} \renewcommand*\cfttoctitlefont{\Large\hfill\MakeUppercase} \renewcommand*\cftaftertoctitle{\hfill}

comment Customise Table of Contents header and heading
Thanks Dan. The smaller Contents dropped away when I removed \usepackage{tocloft} from the preamble. Although I would rather want to keep the smaller friendlier header and get rid of the ugly big bold heading.
