comment Umlaut dots in a different color
@DavidRicherby If you manage to find anything dirty in the word "coutput" then you've got much better association skills than I do. All I can think of is C++ which doesn't fulfill any definition of "sexy" that I can think of ;)

Just to be clear, I wasn't serious. I'm all for colorful language in code.

"Cumlauts"? Seriously? I mean, there might be children interested in LaTeX! I don't think their parents would approve of your German cumsounds.

Sorry, but this is the worst 100+ answer that I've ever seen on this site.

comment How to keep hue from going beyond 300° in xcolor/pgf? (Doing math in pgfplotstable)
@liori Sorry, can't get over this. Ever since you sent me that link, I'm getting pissed when I see those representations of the cosmic microwave background where you can only see big color blobs: sci.esa.int/planck/…

comment Changing layout is difficult or easy in LaTeX?
Well, the design of a good layout takes time and more importantly skill. Just switching layouts usually is easy, even though there might be complications like layout-specific commands or a change of the top sectioning level (i.e. chapter vs. section).

comment Multiple references with \autoref
Maybe I should add that it's the cleveref doc that acknowledges the general incompatibility while mathtool doesn't even mention the issue, even though my very superficial understanding of the matter tells me that it would be much easier for mathtool to address the problem as long as showonlyrefs isn't needed. Is there any realistic chance of seeing a donttouchthereferencingstuff option in mathool, @JosephWright or do I have to try and surgically remove the parts of mathtool I need?

comment Multiple references with \autoref
The documentation says: "Cleveref is currently incompatible with the mathtools package’s showonlyrefs option, which automatically labels only those equations that are ross-referenced." Unfortunately, showonlyrefs=false doesn't help even a bit to alleviate the problem so the documentation should probably at least acknowledge that there is a deeper incompatibility between the two packages.

comment Put entire thesis on one A0 poster?
@daleif You can try using the pdfcrop tool on the normal output document. You should then be able to emulate the above effect with pdfnup (although I surely never tried so many pages). You might want to switch off page numbers in the original document or you'll get very strange margins with pdfcrop.

comment Is it possible to make LaTeX mark overfull boxes in the output?
@EvanED Just for the sake of completeness, you can pass the final option to the microtype package to make it do its thing even in draft mode. I always do this because frankly the whole display overfull boxes thing is completely useless if it doesn't respect microtype's changes.

revised What are all the font styles I can use in math mode?
Some people might be mislead into thinking that all these fonts are freely available. Thought I'd clear that up.

comment Sweave boxplots — not the required output
I took the liberty to include a screenshot of the output you want to see because your problem at first wasn't very clear to me. Hope that's ok.

I switched to LuaLaTeX but I switched back after a while when I ran into trouble with unicode math.
