Reestarting the pages counter

You mean something like \setcounter{page}{0}?

Strange citations now and then with ALL names instead of et al.

This works fine for me. Please post a that reproduces the problem if you want us to diagnose further. One guess is that it could be a BibTeX error that you are ignoring---I see this a lot when people use TeXmaker or a similar IDE-like environment that doesn't pause on errors, so that's something to ...

Reduce space between sections (developer cv)

Does it work to simply change \vspace{-\baselineskip} to \vspace{-1.8\baselineskip} or some such? If not, try putting either \vspace{-1ex} or \vskip -1ex before the minipage in question. If those don't work, try putting \vbox{} in front of the vspace command.

Thesis format : Chapter name and chapter number in different line

I don't claim this will do exactly what you want, but it's a variation on this one way or another: \setlength{\topskip}{18pt} \renewcommand{\@makechapterhead}[1]{% % Heading for \chapter command \vspace*{30mm} % This is in mm from the top margin, not the top of the page \begin{center}\LARGE \ifnum \...

How to change a .bst for references sorted in order of appearance

There should be another file in the same directory (if you got this from the Springer svjour3 package) called spbasic.bst and another called spphys.bst. The spphys.bst style should leave them in citation order.

Enter File Name

This worked fine for me once I downloaded the document class and removed the \\ (line breaks) after the list environments. You should remove those after \item too. You don't need to break the line there, that's what the \item tag is for.

Title not appear in references list

I assume the "springer package" is the svjour3 document class, and you're running LaTeX on the "template.tex" file that comes with it. It's throwing the first warning because "template.tex" contains a section that defines the file "example.eps"; if you run LaT...

My table is never in its correct location

Tables are floating environments, meaning they end up on or after the page where they first appear, but in a location that TeX chooses based on the layout of the rest of the page. This is expected behavior. If you really want a table to be exactly where it appears, you can add [h] as an optional arg...

Addtocontents not adding line to the top of page

It has to do with when each file is read and written. Try this: \makeatletter \immediate\write\@auxout{\noexpand\@writefile{lof}{% \figurename~\hfill Page \par}% }% A better way would be to redefine the list of figures; I had a similar document that I solved by doing this: \renewcommand\listoffigure...

how to export pdf that is sized to fit formula?

You can use the standalone class:
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \documentclass[12pt]{standalone}
  2. \begin{document}
  3. \(\displaystyle ax^2 + bx + c = 0 \)
  4. \end{document}

Note that "display" math (\[...\] or the {displaymath} environment) doesn't work with this class, hence the \displaymath command above.
