comment How can I create a pdf document exactly as big as my tikz picture?
@Konrad: sure, I know I have terminal, and I used it a few times, though I am far from familiar with it, and I have certainly not used it with LaTeX. Could I use X11 instead? Is it the same as terminal?

comment IDE / Best known method for writing Hebrew documents with LaTeX
I really don't like lyx!!!! It is my own prejudice, but I think it is halfway between Word and actual LaTeX, and I don't see it as an option. But you got +1 from me anyway, as I think your answer is useful :)

comment Is there a way to add a timer to a Beamer presentation?
OK, I don't know whether I will get keynote, but I appreciate your solution. Also, "PDF to Keynote also exports to OmniGraffle", and I happen to have OmniGraffle, so this might be very useful indeed!

Mac OS X is not a problem for me, but keynote definitely is!!! It is not free, is it?

comment How can I change the margins for only part of the text?
@Michael: Sorry, because of html the <arg> was not showing (though it was written). About the advantages over changepage, I really don't know. I have never used changepage and didn't even know it existed. I guess I need to try it out :) Have you tried the package yet? Is it good and straightforward?

comment Is there a way to add a timer to a Beamer presentation?
@vanden: yeah, I agree... but I would like to have a timer on my presentation that I could see (answering @Jukka's question), but I don't think that this is possible...

comment How to get rid of navigation symbols in beamer?
Haha!!! As I said, I wanted to get rid of the symbols anyway, I just thought I shouldn't be spending too much time on aesthetics at that point. My supervisor is excellent, the most knowledgeable in the department, and I think his "being fussy" with these little things make him an even better supervisor! And vanden, he did give me all sorts of feedback, from aesthetics, to structure of the presentation, contents, etc, and he even wrote all the comments himself as he was making them to me in person!

by the way, the link for the resulting pdf is actually the manual. I compiled the demo tex file and got the presentation, but yeah, the clock doesn't work with neither Preview nor Skim.

I don't have adobe, and would rather not have to install it. I opened your pdf file and I can see no clock... Thanks for the answer, I believe this will be the one, I just want to wait in case there are other options.

whizzytex gives real time compilation. Yeah, it is a bit slow as I said, but it works! And I think I have seen somewhere that there is a linux editor that has built-in real-life compilation. In any case, your answer was excellent and very useful!

comment Is there any way to get real-time compilation for LaTeX?
As I said in a comment to another answer, this is really not what I am after. I want something that compiles without having to do anything, not even save the file. I want an on-the-fly compiler. Thanks for the answer, I am sure it will be useful for someone :)

comment Is there any way to get real-time compilation for LaTeX?
Thanks for the answer, but this is really not what I am looking for. I want something that will do it on the fly, without having to prompt it to do it. The way it is for me now, the effort to save and to compile my document is the same (C-x C-s or C-c C-c) and once I compile it my viewer updates the file.
