Setting default distance between subfigures

I use a lot of subfigures in my thesis. What I realize now is that the captions between adjacent subfigures are very close together, which makes them hard to read. My two questions are therefore: (1) How can the default distance between two subfigures be increased? or (2) How can the default width of a […]

tables with column width that depends on the width of table entries

Is there an easy way to specify that a table should have columns of a width such that the beginning of a each new column is of a user-specified and column-independent distance to the end of the longest entry of the preceding column? Is there a way to specify that all columns in a table […]

Why are there no spaces in Hangul-Words (XeLaTeX – xeCJK)

This is my minimal working example: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{xeCJK} \setCJKmainfont{Batang} \begin{document} 나는 남자를 이다 \end{document} As you see, there are spaces between the Korean words. I compiled with XeLaTeX => PDF with XeTeX Version 3.1415926-2.5-0.9999.3 (MiKTeX 2.9) in TeXnicCenter. However there are no spaces in the outputfile. Help would be greatly appreciated.

\vfill between items in a list

I want to create a list and have \vfill between all the items.

How to put two (or multiple) QED symbols on one line

Suppose the proof of a theorem contains a claim and its proof, and the proof of the claim completes the proof of the theorem. That is, no further text is required in the proof of the theorem after the end of the proof of the claim. For example: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsthm} \newtheorem{theorem}{Theorem} \newtheorem{claim}{Claim} \begin{document} \begin{theorem} Today […]

What's causing extra white space to the left of my standalone TikZ image?

I have extra whitespace to the left of a TikZ image produced in a standalone environment: I don’t know why this is occurring. I thought perhaps the left projector bounding box, but the right projector is a mirror of the first using \begin{scope}[xscale=-1], and it doesn’t produce the same whitespace to the right. I can […]

Spacing between item and description using description list

How can I get the same result as the code below without having to use \quad spacing? Is there any parameter in enumitem to adjust the horizontal spacing? \begin{description} \item{Item 1} \quad Description 1 \item{Item 2} \quad Description 2 \end{description} MWE for alignment issue: \documentclass{book} %%% Paper format %%% \usepackage[paper=a4paper,bottom=2cm,left=3cm,right=2cm,top=3cm,headheight=7mm,headsep=5mm,marginparsep=5mm,marginparwidth=10mm]{geometry} %%%%%%%%%%%%% \usepackage{enumitem} \usepackage{amsmath} \begin{document} \chapter*{Lista […]

Increase the space between operator in subscript/superscript

I need to increase the space globally between operators in subscripts/superscripts. Example: \sum_{x=4} I need a little more space before and after the = symbol in the subscript. It is required globally in every operator in subscripts/superscripts.

create spacing command that eliminates extra spaces after

After a \section command, there is the same amount of space regardless of what follows. An itemize environment does not add extra space. How can I achieve the same behavior after a custom environment? \documentclass{article} \newlength{\postinfoskip} \setlength{\postinfoskip}{2ex} \newenvironment{info} {\itshape} {\vspace{\postinfoskip}} \begin{document} \section{The spacing after this section \dots} This is a line of text that begins […]
