# Five questions to the newlfm document class

I have fives smaller issue with the newlfm documentclass.

1. How can I place the \addrfrom{} below the name at the bottom of my letter?
2. How can O get the \regarding{} command to aling on \\ like the \cclist{} command?
3. Is there a proper way to space the “Dear … “ from the meta-information above?
4. How do I add page numbers?
5. How do I create indentation on all paragraphs?

Here MWE (screenshot below)

\documentclass[sigleft]{newlfm}

\setlength\parindent{1cm} % to get indentation thanks to http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/58976/71924

There is no need to use a letter-related class to set letters. The changes you seek go against the rigid enforcement that is associated with a class. So, break from it and set it in article. There is no shame in this, and it allows you extreme freedom to place content where you want them to go:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}

\begin{document}

\hfill\today

\medskip

\noindent
\begin{tabular}{@{}l}
Basil of Baker Street \\
221 Baker Street \\
London, UK
\end{tabular}

\bigskip

\noindent
Regarding: \begin{tabular}[t]{@{}l}
\emph{alignment of regarding:''}, \\
\emph{spacing}, \\
\emph{page numbers}, and \\
\emph{indent on all pargraphs} in the \texttt{newlfm} class
\end{tabular}

\bigskip

\noindent

\bigskip

1. Since I'm using article, there is no restrict in terms of placement of content. Move to where you want them to appear, and they will.

2. Use a [t]op-aligned tabular to set such structured content.

3. I've made liberal use of \bigskip, but there is no proper way. It depends on what you think looks good (subjective).

4. This comes default with the plain page style when using article.

5. This comes default with article. I've negated it using \noindent wherever needed.

Sure you can achieve the above output using newlfm, but why go through the trouble of adjusting internals of the class when it's really not necessary.

• I initially broke away from the letter class to the newlfm class because the former was to rigid, but I guess I should simply do it all in article with the freedom it provides. I appreciate your response! – uT5r Feb 8 '15 at 14:02
