I am writing a personal set of proofs that I will use in the future if I ever forget the concepts I am writing.

One thing is, I like the "blog format" of having a single white strip of text without page breaks.

The notes will always be in digital format and I am a bit sick of fighting latex formatting such that my diagrams end up in the pages that I want them to be in.

Is it possible to tell latex to create a "single very long page"?

  • LaTeX is "page oriented". For what you looking for is intended HTML language/documents. You can convert LaTeX to HTML.

  • How can I do that conversion?

  • Print the document and then use sticky tape? More seriously, my PDF browser displays an "infinite" scrollable pdf file, which is pretty close to what you want. Using the geometry package you can adjust the top and bottom page margins so that you will not see the page breaks, giving exactly what you want.

    Viewer has: View | Page Display | Enable Scrolling. FYI: To insert items inline, don't use the figure environment - it is a "float" and is designed to move to the best position for printing. Likewise with tables: just use a tabular not inside a table environment (they also float).

    If the only problem is diagrams not ending up in the right spot, then you don't want them to be floating: don't use the figure or table environments (and use the caption package if you still need a caption).

You can use the geometry package to have very long pages. To display practice class solutions using a single page I use the following command:

\usepackage[margin=1cm,paperwidth=20cm,paperheight=110cm]{geometry}

The maximum length available is about 575cm.
