revised left-edge vertical alignment in gb4e
rolled back to a previous revision

comment Converting from pdf
There is no better way. Surprisingly, the PDF format is really low-level: It's just short strings of letters placed at particular coordinates in the page (though some documents have additional structuring information). To copy stuff out and paste it as plain text, programs have to guess even about where the word breaks are.

comment Does \frenchspacing make \@ redundant?
Hmm, indeed it's a duplicate! Thanks. Somehow the linked question didn't come up when I searched, but it addresses my question (and the converse, which I wasn't worried about).

That rings a bell now (from the TeXbook), thanks!

I was using the term loosely, sorry. I meant with \csname... not with \protect.

@Christian, I think the use after \ifdefined does not need protecting, just the one after \newif. Am I missing something?

Thanks! It seems that I can also just use the \csname approach with a TeX-style if: \ifdefined\ifSomething \else \expandafter\newif\csname ifSomething\endcsname \fi. Is this going to cause problems in some uses?

comment Indentation and lacking space when using gb4e with minipages
Well, it would be hubris to claim that I have a better solution than David Carlisle, but if I'm not mistaken, his will give you the vertical spacing provided by the center environment. It may look like what gb4e inserts, but it strikes me as the wrong approach-- the results will diverge if you customize the behavior of gb4e.

comment Interlinear glosses with overlaps, line numbers, and speaker labels
Oops, yes indeed cgloss.sty. Ouch. Here's a direct link: cgloss.sty‌​. Thanks @David.

comment Interlinear glosses with overlaps, line numbers, and speaker labels
I didn't recommend gb4e, I recommended its glossing macros because they can be used independently of the example environment. If you can't use conan, it's a moot point; choose whatever macros you can bend to your wishes first. Expex is more recent, powerful and flexible, but it's not modular in the same way, and its interface is a bit odd (the author doesn't use LaTeX, so the interface doesn't follow latex norms). I've never used expex, so I can't say more.

comment Interlinear glosses with overlaps, line numbers, and speaker labels
If the conan style otherwise meets your needs, you should be able to combine it with just the \glll command from gb4e, or even better with the version in cgloss.sty, which further unwraps the interlinear glossing macros. They only support two lines of glosses, but the macro is quite easy to extend (and I saw recently that someone had done it and posted the code on the web). Google for clgoss.sty -- it's not on CTAN.
