comment How to use Koma-script only to change font size?
@lockstep IMHO those two questions (the one you link and the one I link) should be merged.

comment How to detect whether “I'm on arXiv.org”?
@JosephWright arXiv does crazy things to the articles: disregards a4paper option sometimes, activates hyperref by default, adds the arXiv stamp on the first page etc. Some of them must be possible to detect. I'll look into it during the weekend if I don't get an answer here inbetween.

Hi! Would this help you? How to specify font size less than 10pt (or more than 12pt)

comment Do you use TeX for writing your thesis or only for its composition?
@JackAidley Thanks for your opinion. Actually, it is not so difficult to do it with paper, scissors and glue. I was as well really surprised by the amount of concentration on the content it allows you: If I counted how many sentences I delete in the text editor before I'm content, this number would be significantly higher than on the paper; still in the end the ones I have on the paper are very good (and I would maybe never word that cleverly in the computer). The immediate step is not unnecessary, and the typing in the end goes very fluently, since you really only behave like an OCD scanner.

comment Prevent large line spacing on lines containing “high” symbols
@noam Downsizing the symbol is not a good idea. I would vote for using the small tilde and smashing the output: foo \smash{$\tilde{\mathcal{F}_K}$} bar

comment Prevent large line spacing on lines containing “high” symbols
@noam (1) You did not provide a Minimal Working Example. (2) So you want a large accent over math, fitted in normal line spacing, but not clashigh with the line above?

@gekkostate How much do you know about LaTeX? And you are going to convert it yourself?

comment How to remove space after image caption?
I would really suppose that someone who has asked 25 questions before would know how a question should look like and what MWE means. Just a comment: IMHO putting \textcolor, \footnotesize and \textit manually into the caption text shows a lack of concept. The package caption that you claimed you use provides a lot of \caption customization on the document level, so that it applies consistently to all captions.

I would be really happy if the downvoter explained to rivu what is wrong with this answer.

Most of the job can be done automatically, that's true. Still, you have to go line by line and page by page through the text, to do the necessary small modifications that make perfection And this takes significant amount of time, it is quite annoying job and in cannot be done automatically.

@Speravir Yeah, after every conversion to LaTeX, there'll be a lot of manual work to do. The question is whether there's more after a conversion by such a program, or after a conversion "by hand".
