I am writing my Ph.D. thesis with LaTeX. As my thesis requires typesetting Arabic text, I was very glad to learn that LuaLaTeX can easily handle that. The questions and knowledge with regard to LaTeX I am primarily interested in surround:

  • LuaLaTeX
  • ledmac/ledpar
  • Biblatex
  • csquotes

I am using the following applications:

  • TeXShop
  • BibDesk

I am working in LaTeX with the following languages:

  • English/German/Latin
  • Arabic
  • Greek

comment Making \cventry fields all raggedright instead of justified in moderncv
@DavidCarlisle : Ok right. I was mislead by the OP's images of your and Werner's suggestion and by the fact that I removed \endgraf from your solution, because I wanted to avoid the extra space your solution adds. But, as it seems, ¨raggedright does not work without an an ending paragraph, does it?

comment Making \cventry fields all raggedright instead of justified in moderncv
That with #7 does not seem to work in my case? The \small information below is still justified, isn't it? Moreover: what about the \cvitem-fields? (I know that wasn't part of the original question.)

Do you have any recommendation for what is the preferred choice for setting subscript in LuaLaTeX?

\linebreak works fine. But about \pagebreak: you see you entered the command after "pleasure." but the break actually occurs after "To take a".

comment linebreak and pagebreak wherever I want with justified margins
@egreg oh, ok. after swtching to scracrtl your suggestion with \linebreak is what I am looking for! Thanks. \pagebreak, however, does not break the pager where the command is but only somewhere in the line where the command is.

comment How to balance between those who can and cannot read unsigned Arabic?
@Sammaye : If you look through several books for learning Arabic, you will see several approaches for the beginner. Some use unvocalised Arabic, others vocalised Arabic, others use transliteration and later switch to unvocalised Arabic, some use both at the same time. There is no consensus. Also: learners are individuals and so perhaps require individual treatment anyway. Since it is the up to the OP to ask the question, he will probably ask it the way he deems most helpful for himself. Let's see how the site develops and do our best to help, and encourage some sort of a qualitative standard.

comment How to balance between those who can and cannot read unsigned Arabic?
I agree with @F.Julian's answer. Just wanted to say that adding signs (when by "signs" you mean "vocalisation" such as fatḥa, ḍamma, kasra, sukūn, and šadda) does not necessarily help the novice who wants to learn Arabic. A fully vocalised text in Arabic script is not always easier to read, as the many signs could easily demand too much of a beginner. I also think that we cannot determine everything before we got the site going. We'll have to see how things develop. I guess that many (especially beginners) will use transliteration, which really is easier to read for the beginner.

Are there any news about biblatex 3.0/biber 2.0? Or is there a release date already on the horizon?

comment Adobe Acrobat's markup and annotate trough LaTeX?
I accepted this primarily because it seems to be the simplest solution. Another more elaborate alternative, as jfbu pointed out in his comment, is the package pdfcomment.
