comment Adjusting the width of a displaymath environment
If this is for a printed article/book/thesis, I'd advise against scaling the font. Instead, I'd try to stretch/shrink the arrows based on the width of the page.

@JosephWright I suppose the definition of complex is where it doesn't work without it?

comment My table is larger than the text box and I want to make it smaller
I'd use the booktabs package and get rid of the vertical lines. That should get rid of some horizontal space. The last column has some repetition. Perhaps you can move write /h in the column header of the last row and get rid of the h=?

comment What affects compilation times, especially in longer documents?
First of all, I'd be surprised if compiling an 80 page document will take long on a modern machine. However, if you have lots of pictures and you create them programmatically this may take a while. For example, creating TikZ pictures from scratch will take a while. (However, see the section Externalization Library .)

comment Drawing the projection of a vector on the other
If you're using Tikz it's easy. Just look for coordinate calculations and then for projection in the pgf manual.

comment Bar Graph from a matrix
You're using pgfplots, which may not have been clear to everybody as you didn't provide a minimum working example (MWE). Page 9 of the pgfplots documentation mentions something related to dimension too large problems.

comment Fancy Labels for Tables
What's wrong with using booktabs and a simple Table that is left justified just as the first column: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{booktabs} \begin{document} \begin{tabular}{*5l} Table \\\toprule $\texttt{o\_orderkey}$ & $\texttt{o\_orderdate}$ & $\texttt{o\_custkey}$ & rest \\ \midrule 0 & 1992-01-01 & 100 & A \\ 1 & 1992-01-15 & 3 & B \\ 200 & 1993-01-01 & 26 & C \\ 201 & 1993-01-15 & 42 & D \\ 300 & 1994-01-01 & 88 & E \\ 301 & 1994-01-01 & 74 & F \\ \bottomrule \end{tabular} \end{document} ?

comment Problem with too verbose generated citations
Not a solution but a suggestion: biblatex doesn't have this problem. Simply import the package with option style=authoryear', add \addbibresource{\jobname.bib}` to the preamble, change your \citep commands to \parencite, add \printbibliography at the end, and Bob's your uncle. I don't know the bibliographystyle agsm, so you'd have to find an equivalent for that.

comment Union of Paths in MetaPost
@Thruston Nope. The pen slants at the end points of the ascender are not the same (30 degrees at the top and 45 degrees at the bottom). Had they been the same, I could have used a special pen shape. I don't have the metafont book, but I'm using my own version of a penpos command that defines the pen slant at a given position. The lack of built-in MetaPost support for path unions is disappointing as it's something that is almost always needed.
