I'm having problems with a ezthesis.

1- This is my fourth chapter and only in this one, my header (Example, Nº4) starts near to the middle of the page, when the other starts near the top.

2- I use the following code (taken from here) to define my quotes, and in my case, as the images shows, the author appears separated from the quotes, when in the original example is appears on the next line. Here is the code:

\documentclass[oneside,numbers,a4paper,spanish]{ezthesis}
\usepackage[Bjornstrup]{fncychap}
\author{}
\title{}
\degree{}
\supervisor{}
\institution{}
\faculty{}
\department{}
\hyperlinking
\begin{document}
\include{Chapters/titlepage}
\include{Chapters/Ch1}
\include{Chapters/Ch2}
\include{Chapters/Ch3}
\include{Chapters/Ch4}
\include{Chapters/Ch5}

And this is my Chapter 4:

\makeatletter
%%\renewcommand{\@chapapp}{}% Not necessary...
\newenvironment{chapquote}[2][2em]
  {\setlength{\@tempdima}{#1}%
   \def\chapquote@author{#2}%
   \parshape 1 \@tempdima \dimexpr\textwidth-2\@tempdima\relax%
   \itshape}
  {\par\normalfont\hfill--\ \chapquote@author\hspace*{\@tempdima}\par\bigskip}
\makeatother

\chapter{Example}

Here is a line before the quotes

\begin{chapquote}{Lewis Carroll, \textit{Alice in Wonderland}}
``Begin at the beginning,'' the King said, gravely, ``and go on till you
come to an end; then stop.''
\end{chapquote}

How can I solve this issues?

Thanks in advanced! Spacing

Not an answer!. Just to show the importance of MWE (Comment area sucks for codes):

This works:

\documentclass[oneside,numbers,a4paper,spanish]{ezthesis}
\usepackage[Bjornstrup]{fncychap}
\author{}
\title{}
\degree{}
\supervisor{}
\institution{}
\faculty{}
\department{}
\hyperlinking

\makeatletter
%%\renewcommand{\@chapapp}{}% Not necessary...
\newenvironment{chapquote}[2][2em]
  {\setlength{\@tempdima}{#1}%
   \def\chapquote@author{#2}%
   \parshape 1 \@tempdima \dimexpr\textwidth-2\@tempdima\relax%
   \itshape}
  {\par\normalfont\hfill--\ \chapquote@author\hspace*{\@tempdima}\par\bigskip}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
\chapter{one}
\chapter{two}
\chapter{three}
%\chapter{four}
\chapter{Example}

Here is a line before the quotes

\begin{chapquote}{Lewis Carroll, \textit{Alice in Wonderland}}
``Begin at the beginning,'' the King said, gravely, ``and go on till you
come to an end; then stop.''
\end{chapquote}

\end{document}

Bottom line: Nobody has a crystal ball.

  • thanks! I make some changes in text and the quotes adapted themselves. Header chapter is still a little above but I suppose it's better now. – Ignacio Gómez Sep 17 '12 at 2:03
