tabularx uppercase all

I got something to work by defining an environment (using environ ) that makes everything inside it uppercase: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tabularx} \usepackage{environ} \begin{document} \NewEnviron{Uppercase} {\MakeUppercase{\BODY}} \begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{>{\begin{Uppercase}}l<{\end{U...

Table runs off page

I can't reproduce the somewhat strange bottom margin without knowledge of the document class you're using, but if I use the standard report class with the booktabs and lscape packages, it fits on the page (though not perfectly) if I put the first column heading in a 1 inch wide column, like so: \mul...

Switching the margin-size between left and right margin

You can change the margins with the lengths \oddsidemargin and \evensidemargin , though using something like the geometry package might be more of what you're looking for. The right margin on each page is implied by the sum of the odd or even side margin and \textwidth . As other comments have impli...

How can we handle the "non-person" author?

If you put the whole name in braces, it should interpret it as a single unit and not abbreviate it.

Issue with aligning of words in chemfig environement

It's a function of where the arrows are anchored. In this case, the defaults are (.east--.west), but the text is vertically centered on the entire letter, not on the baseline, so you're getting what looks like misalignment. You can use \arrow(.base east--.base west) to get the base lines ali...

float captions to righthand side

We also do not have the ability to divine what piece of markup caused the violation without seeing a Infominimal working example. Please post one.

Two papers with the same "first" author and the same year

First, your modification to format.url is causing problems; delete the braces on your replacement line and it should fix that. Getting rid of the a/b/etc. labels in the bibliography is easy: comment out the "extra.label *" line inside format.date. Getting rid of the a/b/etc. labels in the ...

Why is there huge kerning in Δ(σ) and how to reduce it automatically?

My guess is that there is a font substitution for the slanted Dellta symbol (which is an unusual glyph). I don't get any of that extra space if I just use txfonts, newtxmath, or mathptmx without substituting the main text fonts for something else (as you did in your example).
