For reference, here is what the document currently looks like: enter image description here

Now, I'd like to know if there is a way to structure it into sections, e. g. by using lines to separate the individual parts from each other. I assume that this would help readability, which is important as this is going to be used in exams.

On a side node (not the primary concern of this question): Is it possible to align all equal signs in a straight column spanning multiple rows of minipages? I used the same scaling for all of them, but it appears as this isn't doing the trick.

Any further suggestions in relation to the layout/code would also be very welcome!

Thanks in advance!

    You can do pretty much anything with a tikzpicture in combination with [remember picture,overlay] (or without it, but it does make things pretty easy). It does come with some drawbacks though, for example, as soon as your document spans multiple pages, things get tricky because you have to manually partition content between pages. But for truly fine-tuning a single-page document, I have found it to be quite handy. If the constraints of such a solution would not be a problem, and if nobody else has posted something better by then, I could try this tomorrow (3am here now ;-)). – alpenwasser Apr 29 '17 at 1:03

    You could also put the content of the minipages inside simple tcolorbox blocks. – Johannes_B Apr 29 '17 at 4:59
  • @alpenwasser Thanks for the suggestion, I already thought about using tikz but quickly dismissed the idea as I didn't know that you could create overlays with it. I would really appreciate it if you could gibe an example on how to implement in my case, as it seems to be a bit more potent solution than Mike's. – Skydiver Apr 29 '17 at 6:46
  • @Johannes_B Thanky, I've thought about that as well but unfortunately this isn't quiet giving me the result I want. – Skydiver Apr 29 '17 at 6:47

    @Skydiver Alright, I've played around a bit, and there was something I overlooked: the environments (align* & Co.) do not play nice at all with tikz nodes. I actually think Johannes' solution via tcolorbox might be a much better idea. If the aesthetics are a bit too dominating (it would probably look similar to Ross' solution below), you can make the boxes more subdued via the colback, colframe, colbacktitleand coltitle parameters so they look more subtle. The default corner radius can also be removed via arc=0mm, if you'd prefer that. – alpenwasser Apr 29 '17 at 11:32

A primitive but effective approach would be to use \vrule and \hrule for this. You can put \hfill\vrule\hfill between the minipages to get a vertical line between them. But caution, you have to use \hfill twice, even if there should be no line to get the adjustment right.

For the horizontal lines I added some additional vertical space, because otherwise the line would be too close to the following text.

You can add color by writing {\color{gray}\hrule}.

Note: I removed the \hfill at the end of each minipage row and adjusted the width of the two column minipage (5.). Also, there are a little gaps in the vertical lines (between equations and legends).

Of course with TikZ you can do much more, but since I'm not familiar with it, I can't help you there.

Just for fun and to practice using the baposter class (which is available here). baposter uses posterbox to arrange rows and columns of boxes of content. A maximum of six columns can be specified. Any number of rows can be used, as this depends on the height of the boxes. bapostera good option when a symmetrical layout is required. posterbox can contain any environment (I think) so here I retained some of the minipages and also used tcolorbox inside two of the posterbox.

A couple of things to watch out for. First, baposter expects all the header information such as the title and authors. I blended the title into the background just by setting the textcolor the same as the background color. Second, alignment of headers in a posterbox depends on the box format. I avoided renewing some of the commands by setting boxheaderheight=0em, and then just using tcolorbox to get centered titles.

My apologies to the OP if I corrupted some of the questions.

  • Thanks, this surely looks kind of nice. I'd like an even more minimalistic solution for this case though, but I'm sure that this knowledge will come in handy very soon. – Skydiver Apr 29 '17 at 9:12
  • Is there any reason why baposter is not available on CTAN? – Peter Wilson Apr 29 '17 at 18:29
