DTLinitials Topic is solved

Today I embarked on learning how to read a CSV file into LaTeX using datatool package. For each row, I am able to obtain the data using {\surname=surname,\fnames=fnames} to give me surname and forenames. By using {\fnames\ \surname\\ } I can print out the list of names. All good so far However, some...

Date Arithmetic or Calculation Topic is solved

Thanks again for the reply, which I found very useful, although it has taken me all day to learn quite what is going on in the code. I have now gotten to the stage that I can put in a date, and it will display it on the front cover, and state which corresponding day of the month it is. I am using \d...

Date Arithmetic or Calculation Topic is solved

My wife supplies me with material for a minister's manuscript booklet that I print prior to each Sunday. Usually, the booklet is printed several days (or even a week or two) in advance of the Sunday. I do not have much use for \today as it is not the day on which I print the stuff that matters, but ...

Tabbing within toc entries

I have now had a chance to try out the commands suggested by Skillmon, and they work entirely as expected. The variant that I have used is as follows. \newcommand{\hymn}[3][MP]{\addsec{\rlap{\textbf{#1 #2}}\hspace{6em}{\small\textit{#3}}}} This allows me to use hymns from Mission Praise [MP] by defa...

Tabbing within toc entries

Dear Skillmon, Thank you so much for the way in which you have gone about answering my question. I reckon it is going to be very helpful to me. I am vexed that I am not currently in a position to try out your helpful suggestions, as I am currently on holiday until 25 January. I hope it will be OK if...

Tabbing within toc entries

I have the following command in my preamble, so that I can easily typeset a hymn number and the corresponding text of its first line. \NewDocumentCommand{\hymn}{mm}{\addsec{\textbf{#1}{\hspace{1em}}\textit{\small #2}}} When I input a hymn, such as the following, \hymn{Hymn 574} {All things bright an...

for me, \vfill or \vspace*{\fill} works in such case, placed before and after.

If it doesn't work for you, perhaps show the code that you use.

Thanks for the vspace*{\fill}, Stefan. I have not encountered that before. I shall use it next time.

KOMA-Script vertical centering Topic is solved

I have a few verses of poem with space left-over that could accommodate another verse, maybe. I want to center the verses vertically. I have used \begin{verse} and \end{verse} for the poem. How can I push the poem down a bit, please? I have tried \vspace{3cm}, vfil, vfill, and \flushbottom. None had...
