comment Nice scientific pictures show off
+1. I think a nice addition to this plot would be to have a diameter, rather than a radius (though opinion may differ) AND to explicitly label the unit (1 for the diameter, 1/2 for the radius). Currently the units of the horizontal axis are not clear. Maybe the tip of the arrow in blue to help tracking it visually. IMHO.

@Torjbjorn, thanks, seems pretty obvious but I hadn't thought of it. Nice!

comment How to create a bubble chart with LaTeX
If I'm not mistaken, the third coordinate r is the radius. In some/most bubble charts, the third coordinate is the area instead. To quote from the wiki on "bubble chart", "The human visual system naturally experiences a disk's size in terms of its area. And the area of a disk—unlike its diameter or circumference—is not proportional to its radius, but to the square of the radius. So if one chooses to scale the disks' radii to the third data values directly, then the apparent size differences among the disks will be non-linear and misleading."

comment “inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8” error while trying to write a degree symbol (invisible character)
In my case, it was instead of fl, a product of copy-pasting.

comment Environment lstlisting undefined
having the exact same problem, looks like an "illegal" character (obtained by a copy-paste action) is the cause of the error message. I can't say more ;-)

comment Custom and built in TikZ fill patterns
This is a great post. When I ported the code on hatch lines (the second part of the answer) to a graph of mine, I noticed a strange behaviour that is fixed if I replace {\pgfqpoint{\dimexpr-2\hatchthickness}{\dimexpr-2\hatchthickness}} by {\pgfqpoint{0pt}{0pt}}. Just for the record. I don't suppose it's worth opening a whole new thread...

comment How can you create a vertical timeline?
I just want to point out the rather obvious point that shoud someone wish to use a similar code within the standalone class, to produce a self-contained timeline (with a view to inserting it into multiple documents, for instance, with includegraphics), one needs to remove the floating {table} environment. I hope this saves the google some work.

comment Removing legend box (border) in pgfplots
to turn off the border around filled areas (a related question), there is a bug with the draw=none option. See tex.stackexchange.com/questions/99861/…

comment pgfplots combining expression with marks at fixed x coordinates
thank you very much, this is very useful. I selected Harish's answer because he preceded you a little, but your answer is excellent. Thank you. :-)

comment pgfplots combining expression with marks at fixed x coordinates
thanks a lot for this speedy reply! How about if I want to mark selected points, but I still want the line graphing the expression to be smooth? (samples seems to interpolate linearly, as far as I can view from the output) perhaps a smooth option on top of the `samples at' option? [your answer is correct, since I did not specifically ask for the line to be smooth in my OP!]

comment Making an arrow in a pgfplot figure from one point to another?
Note: you need \usetikzlibrary{arrows}, otherwise you'll get Unknown arrow tip kind 'triangle 60'.

comment beamer \includeonlyframes with list
@Symbol1, thanks, Oh then that would explain why \includeonlyframes doesn't like spaces... I confess I did set aside this issue shortly after posting with a plan to get back to it soon, which I'm ready to do now, so I'll try to rephrase my question and be more specific.

comment Pass a class/package/theme option to R with knitr
If going from LaTeX to R is not straightforward, it may be prone to errors for someone like me, so perhaps I'd better move on from this idea. However, just in case, I'll leave the question open a little while longer. Thanks again!
