Other settings for “non-scientific” texts in LaTeX

Figures that have no numbers, but only text in the captions:

\usepackage{caption}
\captionsetup[figure]{labelformat=empty,textfont=footnotesize}
\renewcommand{\thefigure}{}

No indentation at the beginning of a paragraph, but a bigger separation space between paragraphs:

\setlength\parindent{0pt}
\addtolength\parskip{4pt}

Header lines that contain only page number and chapter, not the section:

\usepackage{scrlayer-scrpage}
\clearpairofpagestyles
\automark[chapter]{chapter}
\ihead{\headmark}
\ohead{\pagemark}

About swk

I am a computational linguist, teacher of computer science and above all a huge fan of LaTeX. I use LaTeX for everything, including things you never wanted to do with LaTeX. My latest love is lilypond, aka LaTeX for music. I'll post at irregular intervals about cool stuff, stupid hacks and annoying settings I want to remember for the future.
