The best way to emphasize equations ? Topic is solved

I need to emphasize some mid-paragraph equations. Of course, I'm using the \begin{equation} ... \end{equation} environment, and I tried the \boxed{ } option. However, the box is often too small around the equation, which doesn't "breathe well" inside the box. I tried adding some invisible ...

Re: Add a horizontal Line in the Header

Okay, I think I have it right. Some parts of the code above don't go into the preamble. It must be placed AFTER the \mainmatter statement, and BEFORE the \backmatter . After the \backmatter command, I need to add \pagestyle{headings} to revert to the default style. Is that right ? I need a confirmat...

This works.

However, I noticed that there are chapters numbers 0.0 and wrong titles appearing in the header, for the frontmatter and backmatter parts.

Re: Add a horizontal Line in the Header

Actually the headers by default are completely in capitals. ... Your code looks OK, although the header now looks a bit intrusive. Intrusive ? What do you mean ? Without the styles in my modification, the code gives simple lowecase titles. How can I make the title in slanted capitals ? (that was th...

Re: Add a horizontal Line in the Header

The below example uses the latter one because it is capable of much more things than only page styles. ... Cool ! It works (however, it clashed with my previous \pagestyle{headings} command). However, the header's titles aren't in small caps. How should I modify the following code to make all heade...

Add a horizontal Line in the Header

I'm currently using the "book" document class (the document is a huge book of about 900 pages), and the chapter/section titles and page number are showing in the header, which is what I want. However, I would like to add a simple horizontal line, as what we have under the "paper"...

How to place all Footnotes at the Bottom of the Page?

Is there a general preamble command to tell LaTeX to place all footnotes at the bottom of pages ? Currently, I'm using the \raggedbottom command under the \documentclass{book} environment to remove the variable vertical spacing. I need the footnotes to be placed exactly at the bottom of the page.

Re: How to align Items in a Sum?

Hi Cham, since equations/inequalities have to be aligned at a relation symbol, you could use an aligned environment. Also here you can customize size and fine-tune spacing. For example: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsmath} \begin{document} \[ \sum_{\scriptsize\begin{aligned}i, j &= 1 \\...

The "=" and "\ne" aren't exactly aligned. If you compile and watch the index closely, you'll notice a small (and noticeable) offset. It's ugly.
