comment Using latexdiff with git
Any easy way to copy across auxiliary files, like bibtex files?

comment As a devoted LaTeX user, how do I most effectively use software which is *not* TeX-based?
Also, @KennyPeanuts, since this is clearly a more broadly applicable answer than the selected one, you should choose this as the accepted answer.

It really is. It can also do citations and tables in markdown. It can also convert markdown to latex, with or without headers.

comment As an expert, can you always use TeX for (nearly) any kind of document?
Like this perhaps: Bleamer: Beamer + Blender

That's an interesting point about beamer. I actually like latex+beamer for presentations more than I like it for documents, because it discourages visual distractions and guff. But I can see how it might make some communication more difficult. Would be great to get some good examples of that.

comment How to define the badness of a river?
This is a pretty cool question, but it appears to be based on the assumption that rivers are bad in the first place. Is there any evidence of this? Has anyone shown that strong rivers cause difficulty in reading, or similar?

+1 for a balanced answer. A few points, however: 1) Word and Writer both have good separation of content and style, it's just that very few people use it (and it's not forced on users, which is probably a bad thing). 2) Typesetting quality is a function of the renderer, not the format. It's conceivable that OO might implement tex-quality rendering for odt->pdf.

@DamienPollet: You should make that an answer. It's the best one so far.

This question is pointless, as phrased. You can use tex for any document, including for music - hell, you could write a webserver or an FPS in it if you were a real masochist. What's important is whether there are document types for which you should not use tex...

comment How to find the lost text part when having “Float(s) lost” error
I'm seeing this too. I'm using the AGU latex template, and everything works perfectly on draft mode, but I get this error, and one of my tables goes missing when not on draft mode. Even more annoying, this is the second of two nearly identical tables, and the first one works fine. Extremely frustrating.
