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 use the following applications:

  • TeXShop
  • BibDesk

I work in LaTeX with the following languages:

  • English/German/Latin
  • Arabic/Persian
  • Greek
  • Syriac

@Maïeul do you mean \ledpb? I tried it but could not make it work. I'd be glad if you could show me here in an answer how I can use eledpar with manual page breaks on both pages. just a quick minimal example would suffice. you could also do it here: tex.stackexchange.com/a/147018/12277

comment distribute contents of two input-files to left and right pages
@Maïeul We have been in contact about some of these a few months back, if you remember. Especially the way how eledpar creates page breaks automatically is unsatisfying in my case, i.e., the text on the left is not synchronised with the text on the right. It's just not good enough to be published that way, although some features of eledpar are just really cool. Since eledpar automatises many thinks (e.g., page breaks and so on ) and does not allow the user to intervene, I am now looking for a less automatic and more hands-on approach - even if that is at the expense of the cool features.

actually, because I am looking for an alternative to eledmac/eledpar, as I have been unable to overcome my problems with these packages for three years.

Yes, I thought of this. This is one -- potentially laborious -- way to do it.

but that creates an entry in the ToC... this is why I used the starred command.

good idea. I just did. Do you know by any chance why a starred command (such as \section*{Title}) does not create a label to be displayed in the header?

I tweaked a few things and now your solution is just what I needed! If I could I'd buy you a cup of coffee. Thanks!

Wow, I am impressed, both by the result and by the fact that this si really new shit (v. 3.15)! While I don'T see where the example above uses \slshape, I spotted that you frogot a square bracket after \ofoot. Well done. I will have to look at the documentaion and learn how exactly you did it.

This only works for the formatting in my MWE, which is a minimal working example. In the full document, the formatting is more complex, because the first page of each chapter has a different formatting than the rest having an empty header and only the page number centered in the footer. This I could not achieve with KOMA (I guess it is possible though, but it was so easy with titleps and I also love titlesec).
