ACM, the world's largest educational and scientific computing society, delivers resources that advance computing as a science and a profession. ACM provides the computing field's premier Digital Library and serves its members and the computing profession with leading-edge publications, conferences, and career resources. ACM offers the resources, access and tools to invent the future.
This example shows how to programmatically save plots in a figure so that the saved plot has a tight margin of white space around the axes. Alternatively, you can interactively save a plot with minimal white space using the export button in the axes toolbar. The toolbar appears when you hover over the axes.
Here are some LaTeX tips to help save space. I usually use these tricks when writing NSF proposals as they have strict font, margin and page restrictions. The microtype package allows LaTeX to take advantage of micro-typographic extensions that were introduced by pdfTeX.
Floating Objects floats are placed and numbered automatically. They are placed at an appropriate position determined by the TeX float placement algorithm. The algorithm has a number of options that can influence float placement.
Imagine having a beautiful picture, but the subject is very small or not centered. What if you want to place several graphs side-by-side with subfigbut all or some of the graphs have a white border taking up a lot of space. The graphics bundle provides a way to crop an image using the trim, clip options of the includegraphics command.
That is, I wanted to have a layout with wide outer margins where I could place small figures and sidenotes 1. Big figures could still go inside the text block, while even bigger figures could use both the text block and the margins. My reasoning for this was quite simple: I like to use plenty of simple figures to explain ideas, but they result in a lot of wasted space.
In the previous tutorialthe importing of graphics was introduced. However, just having a picture stuck in-between paragraphs does not look professional. For starters, we want a way of adding captions, and to be able to cross-reference.
It seemed like the only goal of the unknown creator was to preserve paper, completely neglecting aesthetics and readability. Fortunately I was allowed to create my own template. Problem: Find and adapt a LaTeX thesis template that meets both established and my own aesthetic standards.
The page dimensions in a L a T e X document are highly configurable and the geometry package offers a simple way to change the length and layout of different elements such as the paper size, margins, footnote, header, orientation, etc. Suppose you have to create a document in a4paper and the text shouldn't exceed 6 in width and 8 in height. To create it with geometry is easy, include this one line in the preamble:.
