Re: Modify the bottom margin distance

You could either change the value of \textheight, or use the geometry package and change the lengths to whatever you want, or remove if you want the default values.

  1. \usepackage[
  2. top = 2.75cm,
  3. bottom = 2.50cm,
  4. left = 3.00cm,
  5. right = 2.50cm]{geometry}

Hi L1011, Don't post random bits of code, take a look at this post and read about creating MWE. http://www.latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=7878 For your problem, you can use 'normal' horizontal spacing commands. eg to force the figures as far apart as possible use \hfill \document...

Re: How do I delete the blank pages that comes automatically

I've not used the memoir class, but it sounds like you are using some sort of "two page" or double sided option which forces a new chapter to start on a right-hand (ie. odd) page.

Try forcing it to be single sided.

Re: Letter Type Paper and A4 Type Paper appears as the same.

You may need to specify the size of paper in the dvi->pdf stage. In your examples, the page number looks lower on the a4 page than the letter, suggesting that latex is creating different page sizes, but during conversion the same size is used for both. What command is used when converting dvi->pdf?

Re: missing \endcsname error

This MWE compiles for me so I guess the error must be somewhere else in your code. \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \begin{document} \begin{equation}\label{3e} (-ln(1-s)ln(s))_0^{1-z} + \int_1^{1-z}\frac{ln(1-s)}{s}\,ds \end{equation} \end{document} Can you construct a MWE(see link if you don't know...

Hi tafkars Have a read of this post, especially the bit about MWEs (Minimal Working Examples) http://www.latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=7878 With the information you have given it is almost impossible for anybody to give help. Although having a guess, are you including the figure...

Re: emacs latex-mode

If you always want .tex files to be highlighted in latex mode, add this line to your .emacs file (it should be in your home directory).

  1. (setq auto-mode-alist (cons '("\\.tex" . latex-mode) auto-mode-alist))

Re: Placing a big figure

Reading Localghost's post, I realised that when I said it works for me, I had also changed the scale to 0.8\textheight for the same reasons that he mentions.

Sorry :oops:

Re: Placing a big figure

?! Strange. Not sure if it matters, but how are you creating the pdf? I used pdflatex.

Take a look at this webpage
http://mintaka.sdsu.edu/GF/bibliog/latex/floats.html

Try altering the \topfraction and \bottomfraction values of your document.

Re: Placing a big figure

Try using
  1. \begin{figure}[!h]
to force the placement.

That works for me with the example you posted.
