I am sure there is no single package dedicated to the items you list, including "etc.", except perhaps
The goal of the
savetrees package is to pack as much text as
possible onto each page of a LaTeX document. Admittedly, this makes
the document far less attractive. Nevertheless,
savetrees is a
simple way to save paper when printing draft copies of a document. It
can also be useful when trying to meet a tight page-length requirement
for a conference or journal submission.
On a case-by-case basis, the following might be of use:
Consider using the
setspace package. Read more about adjusting the line spacing from the UK TeX FAQ entry: Why doesn't
Standard document class (like
report) allow for passing optional arguments regarding the default font size. For example,
will produce a document with default
10pt font size. Other options include
or using the
memoir document class which allows font size selections from
60pt by default.
geometry is king when it comes to layout specification. For example,
will leave a
1cm margin (on all sides), without having to fiddle with other lengths.
- Space between bullet points:
In general, list management is easily made possible via
enumitem. For example, inter-item separation is set using
would leave no separation between items. The option
nosep will kill all vertical spacing.
- Spacing between equations:
If you're referring to the spacing above/below equations in surrounding text, then you need to modify the lengths
\belowdisplayshortskip. These lengths define the skip (and stretch/shrink) above and below an equation if the preceding/following paragraph has a short line or not.
If you're using
align (and friends) environment, then the spacing between equations are usually set via the length
\jot. Therefore, modifying this length would provide a tighter spacing between elements within that environment.
The above concepts both deal with vertical spacing. There's more options (like vertical spacing in
tabular) contained within Herbert Voß'
mathmode document (details will follow). Horizontal spacing is also something you can tighten within mathmode. For more on this, see the
mathmode document (section 11 Space, p 28).
Finally, you could also follow the approach in How to scale entire document including Maths symbols? to compress a number of pages onto one using
nup option. This would require a two-stage process of creating the regular information (phase 1), and then a compressed version via
pdfpages (phase 2).
