I'm using LaTeX to typeset my phys reports for uni. I've noticed three issues I can't seem to fix; not sure where I'm going wrong!
1. I structure my report using \section, \subsection, \subsubsection and \paragraph. I like the paragraphs, but the paragraph numbering usually continues across sections (so I might for example have paragraphs a and b in subsection 1.1, but then in subsection 1.2 the next two paragraphs are labelled c and d instead of a and b.) However this is not always the case! In a recent, longer report I had: ... 1.3 a, b, c ... 2.1 d, e ... 4.3 a. So I am confused as to why this might be.
2. I print on A4 and so have set up TeXshop to output pdfs as A4, but the right-hand margins are narrower than the left, and the bottom margins much wider than the top. (On the pdf itself, not a printer setup issue.) What can I do to correct this?
3. When compiling the report, the console contains the error ' warning: there were undefined references' but I have taken care to label and refer to all figures consistently. I compile again but this does not change.
thanks in advance!
2) Are you using the book format? You can manually adjust the margins with geometry, e.g.
Use the \oddsidemargin and \evensidemargin to adjust the odd and even pages.
3) You should see a (?) if you have an undefined reference. It could just be a misspelling. Can you not pinpoint the line it complains about?
2) I'm using the report layout in revtex4. I'll give the geometry package a try.
3) Yes, I do get the ?? in place of these references. I have checked to ensure there's no misspelling. Most of the references are fine, while others are not (all are defined using an identical format). On one occasion I replaced one stubbornly undefined reference with text; the next time I compiled the report, the reference following that one was now undefined (whereas it was not before that). So I am unsure as to where the issue arises.
