Adding dots to indicate that the footnote is too big [...]

Hello, Let's say you write a footnote's argument, i.e. \footnote{argument} , where the length of argument is too high, resulting in a footnote which is, in the output, cut in some pieces. The footnote is thus divided across pages, but I find it ugly to see these cut footnotes not separated with an i...

Re: Box around the title is broken

Thanks for all your answers. My problem is now solved. I used
  1. \let\oldDOTI\DOTI
  2. \renewcommand*\DOTI[1]{\setlength{\textwidth}{\linewidth}\oldDOTI{#1}}
, as suggested by Stefan. I saved the other solutions too.

(I did not want my whole document to be in landscape format.)

Re: Using enumerate package with [1]

You can also use the enumitem package: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{enumitem} \begin{document} \begin{enumerate}[label={[}\arabic*{]}:] \item first item. \item second item. \end{enumerate} \end{document} Pretty good! I will check it too. Thanks. Hi Luca, Is there a preferred (in the sense of...

Re: Using enumerate package with [1]

Thanks for your answer, Stefan. That is possible that I made a typo when trying locally. It now works.

Is there a preferred (in the sense of the enumerate package, not in our sense) form?

Thanks.

Using enumerate package with [1]

Hello, I would like to use the enumerate package to have such an output: [1]: My first item, [2]: My second item. Inferring its manual ( http://www.dd.chalmers.se/latex/Docs/PDF/enumerate.pdf ), I would use such a partial code: \begin{enumerate}[[1]:] \item My first item, \item My second item. \end{...

Re: Rotating a big text in a page.

The log file is incomplete. At least the first five lines are missing. Yes, but are they relevant? I should have specified that it was a part of the log. You should know which LaTeX distribution you are using. It is MiKTeX. You should also know that your compilation route is LaTeX -> DVI -> PS -> P...

Re: Rotating a big text in a page.

I think that some things would help to get closer to the probable cause. ⋅  The LaTeX distribution ⋅  The compilation route ⋅  The list of used files The last point needs the \listfiles command in the preamble. How can I manage to learn these pieces of info? Here is th...

I do not understand why it does not work at my compilation. Is my .pdf file ``bad'' (i.e. not as I want it to be) on your computer?

I've noticed that it works when the text is shorter.
