Re: Title size and format specification

Hi Johannes I'm not that adventurous when I'm a single mom with two kids, an elderly mother, a full-time job and a thesis manuscript to get printed. Then I just want to get it done. At least I managed to get the sections and subsections done on my own by trying and reading the manual before I had to...

Re: Title size and format specification

Hi Johannes

Thank you so much. Can you please explain what the bits do:
\titleformat{\chapter}[block]{\centering\fontsize{14pt}{16pt}\selectfont}{\chaptertitlename~\thechapter.}{12pt}{}

What is the tilde for?
Why 12pt right at the end?

Re: Title size and format specification

Actually, none of the settings I try work. This is an example I found but editing it to what I think is appropriate just breaks it: \titleformat{\chapter}[display] {\normalfont\sffamily\huge\bfseries} {\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter}{14pt}{\Huge} I need the "Chapter 1" and the title to app...

Re: Title size and format specification

I started looking at titlesec while I was looking for a response.

What <shape> should I be using if I want the whole heading on one line?

Title size and format specification

I need to format the chapter headings of my thesis to be in the centre of the page, bold 14-point font and to appear in this format: Chapter 1. Title of Chapter At the moment, using the defaults, the font is much larger and the chapter and title appear left justified on two lines as: Chapter 1 Title...

Re: Table in appendix

Great! That fixed the table problem too. Now I spotted another problem. I'm using glossary to create a page listing acronymns (Neuropeptide Acronyms section in the MWE). This page, however, is title Glossary. How do I change that? I don't want this list to be part of the acronyms because, firstly I ...

Re: Table in appendix

Okay, here is (as minimal as I can get it) MWE again with the "malicious code" removed. The first appendix now numbers it sections as .1 and .2 in stead of A.1 and A.2. Let's sort this first and then we can come back to the table problem. \documentclass[12pt, a4paper, onecolumn, oneside]{b...

Re: Table in appendix

:lol: My sincere apologies LaTeX. I promise I'll do better. Hopefully the folks here can save my soul. :lol: To tell you the truth. I have no idea. I probably found that fudge somewhere on the Internet or asked for help on this forum. I think it is to get the page numbering to work correctly. If you...

Re: Table in appendix

Aw man! Sorry about that, stupidity struck again! However, when I add another table (say just copy the existing table into the Introduction section), then the Table is still numbered 1. I'm attaching my generated pdf. Do you get something different when you compile?

Re: Table in appendix

Hi Stefan Okay here goes. I hope this is minimal enough. I'm not good with MWEs because everytime I start stripping the document down I loose things or it stops working or it doesn't produce the error and I end up spending hours on the thing. As it is now it reproduces the problem that I have an one...
