What's the point of having two thousand readers if I can't ask a question like this once in a while?
I'm working on the final version of my dissertation -- the one I'll submit to the graduate school next week. The dissertation manual states that no text may appear in the margin area.
LaTeX, on the other hand, keeps wanting to put some pieces of mathematics, which appear inline, in the margins. (Presumably this is because this is "better" than the alternative of having very long inter-word spaces.)
- is there some way to check that nothing's sticking out in the margin? (I thought this is what "overfull \hbox" meant, but the line numbers where those appear aren't the ones where I have this problem.) There are some things that are just barely sticking out into the margin, and with thousands of lines total I don't trust my eye.
- once I find all the places where text protrudes into the margin, is there some way around this other than just inserting \newline every time this problem occurs? This creates its own problems.
I surely can't be the only person who's had this problem, but Google is failing me.
