Re: Repeating LaTeX items (equations, descriptions, etc.)

Perhaps there is a better way to do this. But one way to do this is to to use \def. It is not considered good to use \def, but somehow I find its use more intuitive compared to \newcommand, so I will give you an example with that. To avoid clash with latex commands, I start my commands with uppercas...

Re: Sublist on list

Look at package enumitem. That may solve your problem. On the other hand, you may not need it. Depends on what exactly you are trying to do. Post a minimal working example and you will get better help.

Re: help for annoying behaviour of Texshop new release's preview

I thought that perhaps you had tried that...but was not sure. Anyhow, have you tried asking your question on the following forum:

http://www.apfelwiki.de/forum/viewforum.php?f=6

People there know a lot about Texshop. Perhaps there is no solution, but you can try asking there.

Re: help for annoying behaviour of Texshop new release's preview

Did you all try looking at Preferences in TexShop 2.18.

1. Go to Texshop -> Preferences
2. Preview Tab
3. In preview window position choose "Remember last position on close"

That might solve the problem.

Re: description always bold? Topic is solved

Most likely there is a better solution than the one below. But the following also works. \documentclass[12pt]{article} \def\MyItem[#1]#2{\item[{\rm #1}]#2} \begin{document} \begin{description} \item[First item] This is the first item. \item[{\rm Second item}] This is the second item. \MyItem[Third i...

Re: How to change the linespread space in array environment

I had a similar question and gmedina suggested using \setlength{\abovedisplayskip}{<length>} and \setlenght{\belowdisplayskip}{<length>} to change the vertical space above and below the display. I do not know how to link to that thread, but a search for the term abovedisplayskip should bring it up.

Re: Text at the bottom part

I am not entirely sure what you want. But if I am thinking correctly, \vfill will solve your problem. Use \vfill instead of \vspace.

Re: Generating bibliography with only .bbl file, not .bib file

The following might work. Not sure though. What editor are you using and how does your file compile? Do you have to run Bibtex manually (by issuing the command or pressing a button for bibtex) or do you use a script such as Latexmk.pl which takes care of running Bibtex for you whenever you hit compi...

Re: Section heading style for References

Thanks very much Stefan. You are right. The vertical space was still present when I tried the solution in my post. I used \vspace to reduce that vertical space. However, your solution is better. Thanks.

Re: Section heading style for References

From searching the web, I learnt the following way of suppressing the section title of the bibliography section, and then used my own custom style.

Command
  1. \renewcommand{\refname}{}

gets rid of the section title name.
