comment How to influence the position of float environments like figure and table in LaTeX?
Thanks, I'll give it a look. That package may solve the problem in this question.

comment How to influence the position of float environments like figure and table in LaTeX?
Is there some strong, specific typesetting reason why double-column floats cannot be placed at the bottom of the page? If not, is there some workaround to permit this?

comment Two-columns wide figure at the bottom of a page with Revtex
From this answer, apparently There is no bottom area for page-wide floats in two-column mode. Because who would ever want that, right?

comment Why does my Mathematica figure not work with PSFrag?
I just found, belatedly, this duplicate in StackOverflow. I guess that's what happens to newcomers who don't search parent sites, and to questions that don't get migrated out of them.

@Werner I'm running Mathematica 9.0.1 over Ubuntu 12.04. I'm not sure at all what different versions or OSs will do.

comment Why does my Mathematica figure not work with PSFrag?
@cmhughes Those are nice, but they cannot do the heavy numerical integrations required by my thesis work. Every tool has its place.

comment Make beamer not look like beamer
I can definitely empathise wiht a certain amount of instinctive dislike of those navigation buttons. Dislike is seldom a rational thing, and it can be that little things like that set your audience against you. Whatever else one does, this is definitely the first thing to do.

Except, of course, for the Beta function, the H theorem, and certain Gegenbauer functions.

comment bibtex: URL and DOI line breaks on different characters
Note, though, that this will not parse the doi for unwanted characters such as <, > and ; , as the doi package does.

comment Comprehensive list of tools that simplify the generation of LaTeX tables
@Daniel, I can provide the code here but it's the spreadsheet that's really valuable, and I don't see how I could post it here.

comment Comprehensive list of tools that simplify the generation of LaTeX tables
@YuppieNetworking well caught, you're actually right. I would make the case, on the other hand, that $-xxx$ makes longer dashes in cells where space is at a premium.

comment Comprehensive list of tools that simplify the generation of LaTeX tables
On Excel, simply select all the cells you want and hit ctrl+C, then paste into the LaTeX file. This needs every other column to contain a separator, starting from & or fancier if needed. For the table above an example separator is =CONCATENATE("} & \cellcolor{color",TEXT(L5,"0"),"} \textcolor{text",TEXT(L5,"0"),"}{")

comment What is the status of generating LaTeX from handwriting (i.e., OCR)?
I'm not entirely clear what it is VisionObjects is providing - is it only the web apps?. I would dearly love a neat and accessible way to handwrite on my tablet and have the LaTeX inserted directly into (say) TeXnicCenter.

comment Replace the `$$ … $$` macro with the `\[ … \]` macros? - Prefer the way LaTeX lays it out, but `$` are faster to write
@PatrickGundlach (or anyone else) is there a similar shortcut in TeXnicCenter?
