Memo class in LaTeX Topic is solved

Sure, I did not look this far. The \vfill should be replaced by some fixed \vspace, as you said, such as \vspace{\baselineskip}.

Memo class in LaTeX Topic is solved

\raggedbottom is ok since \flushbottom makes sense only for balancing page heights for twoside documents. But it may be the default here, for article. Both parskip and \parindent at the same time doesn't make sense to me. That's double emphasizing paragraph breaks. I would remove \parindent or set ...

ffen2tex, a tool to create game/puzzle diagrams

I did not mean more examples, more like (maybe I overlooked) sample puzzle pages of a puzzle book, real tasks, challenges, with text, a story, assuming that you did already, so seeing it "in real life".

ffen2tex, a tool to create game/puzzle diagrams

Hi Alain, welcome to the forum! That's very interesting. My first thought when I read it and had a glance into the documentation: I would like to see complete sample puzzles to better understand. My second thought after reading: it's for writing but not for reading. I hardly can read the code. I gue...

Is it possible to create an index without the \index{} command?

Special characters can be treated in an index and is just an indexing topic. And for a keyword that goes too sub index, one needs a different macro. Anyway, the solution you look for is pretty impossible (how should it guess sub index or main index) and may produce a big pile of index entries anyway...

Is it possible to create an index without the \index{} command?

Internally, the macro would use école. But you are also right, the macro cannot contain accented characters, so the macro name would be \ecole . Definitions like \newcommand*{\idx}[1]{\index{#1}{#1}} \newcommand*{\keyword}{\idx{kexword}} \newcommand*{\ecole}{\idx{école}} ... or something like with \...

Is it possible to create an index without the \index{} command?

Old way: Some text \index{keyword}keyword ... text ... \index{keyword}keyword Suggested way: Some text \keyword ... text ... \keyword Not so bad, also seen the fact that now you have a macro to even add glossary entries or formatting. \keyword would be defined so that it contains \index plus \xspace...

Is it possible to create an index without the \index{} command?

Both of my suggestions involve \index, but once in the macro, not a hundred times in the main document body.

Without \index, it is not possible, somewhere it must be placed.

Is it possible to create an index without the \index{} command?

Hi Cham, quick and easy way: for day keyword foo, create a macro \foo that contains the word plus an \index command. Then use \foo in the text. One benefit is, that you can add formatting whenever you decide. The construction of \foo with \index could be done via another macro to save typing and to ...
