Math professor by day, hacker by night.

I teach calculus and try to implement teaching and new media technologies. I use a lot of LaTeX and the occasional scripting language.

So glad I found this site—now I can unsubscribe to some of those mailing lists I should be paying attention to but never have the time when the mails come.

comment Creating Multiple-State Models (rectangular nodes)
@Clarinetist: > is a key to set the arrowhead on the far end of the line segment. There are several possible values, and latex gets you the filled triangular arrowheads like you see above. There are plenty of other choices; see the “Arrow Tip Library” section of the PGF/TikZ manual.

comment Beamer - Title page is perturbed when adding notes
Looks like your version of beamer is older than mine. I have 3.26 and you have 3.24. So I would start by upgrading your beamer installation.

Put \listfiles in your preamble and add to your question the contents of the log file between *File List* and *****.

comment Beamer - Title page is perturbed when adding notes
You might want to remove any temporary files and recompile to see if the unwanted behavior persists. As for your second request of putting the next slide in the note page...this would be a nice feature but seems pretty hard to implement because TeX goes through the file in one pass, shipping out pages as it goes. To put a future slide on a page you'd have to save it from a prior run and insert it. Could work, but not a simple task.

comment Beamer - Title page is perturbed when adding notes
When I compile your MWE I get something different. The top half of the handout version has the slide just as it appears with the beamer version. The bottom half of the handout version has a mini version of the slide (without the background) and your notes. Is that what you want?

comment Why doesn't this code compile?
In the future try to include the error message you received at the point the compilation halted. That is useful information that can help others (or maybe even yourself) solve the problem.

comment How do i get the coordinates (east, west, north) of an ellipsoid? (code does work for rectangulars)
Could you fill in your question? "this" in the title is a bit ambiguous.

comment Use the beta variant
Step 2 doesn't seem that necessary since the link at Step 1 shows the beta in each of the locally installed fonts.

comment Use the beta variant
@egreg: Good to know. I've been using mathspec for years and run into some bugs but I didn't realize it wasn't ready for prime time. I've included a unicode-math implementation.

Oops! I assumed it was since fontspec is. I've edited.

comment TikZ: Re-arranging the hierarchical diagram
You have a working code example, an idea of how you want to change the result, and the manual. Spend a few hours with those items. Then post your best attempt at getting what you want.

comment Making URLs non-clickable with hyperref
How are the URLs entered into the bibliography? A minimal working example (MWE) would help users diagnose the issue.

comment How to mark/label nth data point from file in pgfplots?
node near coord is something I should learn more about. Would there be a way to specify the point meta in the table and display it automagically?

comment Semi-transparent Tikz nodes
It's the auto-pst-pdf package. Commenting it and the pspicture environment out gives you a semitransparent fill. Work your MWE down so that it has just these two features in it (no table, no forest, etc) and it might get some more attention. See also tex.stackexchange.com/q/121927/1402

comment Semi-transparent Tikz nodes
Could it have something to do with the difference that you are filling in white? Does the output change if you change that?

comment What symbol is this?
@skpblack: I think the fonts used by the bbm package are in the blackboard bold shape, but not the same as the bbold font.

comment What symbol is this?
@skpblack: Debugging font installations are not my expertise, so to get more exposure to your problem I think you should ask a separate question, linking back to this one.

comment What symbol is this?
@skpblack: Hm, it's possible your installation doesn't have the fonts at the size you want? What does the log file say?
