Spacing troubles in ToC

I'm getting some spacing troubles with a very long ToC, when the number of chapters, Sections and subsections is higher than 10. How can I fix this? Here's a MWE showing clearly the spacing problem (sorry, the code is pretty long since I had to paste a lot of fake chapters/sections/subsections): \Re...

Typical font size used for a large physics book

I've written a large book on physics, with lots of equations, figures and tables. The document is huge (about 2000 pages!!). Currently, I used 12pts fonts. This isn't for publishing (it's my personal notes on physics). I recently tried 11pts for the main font and found that it's pretty. I'm now wond...

Small vertical spacing glitch in footnote Topic is solved

Thanks Stefan, it's working. But I also get the same problem with an equation environment (unless I used your trick). That's occuring with a more complicated preamble settup. The MWE below doesn't show it: \documentclass[12pt,letterpaper,twoside]{book} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{lmodern} \...

I'm having an extra vertical space under an align environment that I need to remove.

Glossary not appearing Topic is solved

Wow! Thanks a lot, now it's working great! 8-)

A simple option could change everything. But then, why is that option not on by default? What's the point in having this turned off?

I don't understand this. My index is made from within my installation of LaTeX. I don't use any external program for it, and it compiles fine without a glitch.

Well, is there a way to make that glossary from within LaTeX only, without calling any other special program ?

If LaTeX could compile an index by itself, it should also be able to create a glossary, isn't ?

I did used the \makeglossaries command (in the preamble). Yet, it doesn't compile a glossary.

Glossary not appearing Topic is solved

I'm trying to make a glossary (for the first time), but the code isn't working. I don't understand what is wrong. Here's a MWE code to work with: \RequirePackage[l2tabu,orthodox]{nag} \documentclass[11pt,letterpaper,twoside]{book} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[total={6.25in,10in},left=1.25in,...
