Short question on tabularx and tabular*

This works ALMOST perfectly: only flaw is that on the first column there is a different indent compared to the last comlumn; see attached snippet and you'll know what I mean...

Re: Question on package error: need perltex?

ok, one problem is solved, kinda:

When putting all my files in the c:\users\faust folder it compiles properly using pdflatex.

using latex.exe there appears no text in the thumbs. I think I'll go with localghost's suggestion of only using this package when I need to -final run-.

Question on package error: need perltex?

Hi, I've been trying to implement the thumby package, but when compiling it returns an error: Package perltex error: document must be compiled using perltex.

So how do I do this? I'm on win7 64 bit using texniccenter.

Thanks!

Help on typesetting a header

I am curious how to achieve the vertical textblock for chapters. I took this from a pdf generated by latex. Textblock for every new chapter is lower (precisely the hight of the block lower). Is right on odd pages and left on even pages.

Any easy way to do this or must it be done by hand?

thanks!
