Reducing some text width in exam class

I noticed this too. Normally I use the optional argument of \parbox for aligning (t, b or the default c). So I would choose b, but I already had to use [t] to align at the top at the left side. I could imagine setting an anchor and using a TikZ overlay for an aligned placement of the dots, but so it...

Packaging custom module or layout

Hi Alex, welcome to the forum! When I produce documentation in PDF format, I use LaTeX. Like you, I try to keep it simple for my colleagues and me. Instead of LyX, I use LaTeX but I separate content and style. I go so far, that I write pure content without commands. (only macros when needed) For thi...

Natbib with Latex

Run BibTeX on the main document name (without file name extension). It works with the document and the .aux file (that has the document name).
Put the .bib files in the same folder as the main document, and run bibtex on the main document name (without .tex name extension).

Reducing some text width in exam class

You could use \parbox each time to limit the text width when needed.

  1. \part \parbox[t]{0.6\textwidth}{This is a true-false question
  2. which doesn't have any true of false answer, just to annoy you
  3. like hell. Geez this exam is dull !}
  4. \hfill\parbox[b]{0.5in}{\dotfill}

Bold Greek Letters

Hi Karthos, welcome to the forum! There's no problem doing it in the way you described. This works and prints greek letters in bold: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[english,greek]{babel} \usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc} \begin{document} \selectlanguage{english} Text \selectlanguage{greek} ελληνικά \...

Reducing some text width in exam class

Hi Cham, a line end is like a space. So above, you have a line end (space) and then a small skip, then a line end. In the last line there's no small skip, just a line end. You can see it's aligned if you comment out the line end before the small skip: \documentclass[11pt]{exam} \usepackage[T1]{fonte...

Natbib with Latex

Hi Hakari! That code is perfectly ok. And it runs with TeXworks too. ShareLaTeX probably did all the routine for you that you now have to do yourself with TeXworks. Once you saved .tex and .bib file, ⋅  Typeset with pdfLaTeX pdflatex.png ⋅ Run with BibTeX (same green "play&q...

Need Help please

Hi Vivito,

welcome to the forum!

Does LyX produce a .log file? Can you post it here, as attachment? The "Attachments" link is below the text edit field, when writing a post.

Figures, caption font size and spacing

Hi,

welcome to the forum!

Perhaps post some example code that shows, what you are doing, so we can help to improve it. It should be compilable. (information link: Infominimal working example)
