comment Getting floating objects in multicol environments
I know this is old, but either A) is there a replacement now (a year on), or B) could you mention some of those other projects? Cheers!

@deshmukh, that's an unfortunate response from them. If you ever get an answer please feel free to share, since I love vim and wish everyone could use it for LaTeX.

@deshmukh, fair enough, forgot about that when I was thinking about it. I'm sorry, this sort of problem is outside the scope of my abilities. You might ask on askubuntu.com

comment LaTeX Editors/IDEs
@deshmukh, okay, I was curious and tried testing this with some devangari text I found online. I've experienced two problems, under konsole I see only question marks, under gnome the glyphs are set at the wrong width. The first sounds like a font problem, the second I'm not sure how to resolve, but it seems like a gnome-terminal problem. I don't have devangari fonts installed other than what is already provided. My apologies.

comment Recreating a guilloche with TikZ
I know this is an old question, but for reference I thought I'd add this, since I stumbled across it. It might be possible to design a desirable guilloche with this subblue.com/projects/guilloche and then utilising their provided source code (extract the equations), plug parameters from your drawing to re-create the image with TikZ

@AymanElmasry, if you've found a solution to that problem that was an issue for you (maybe it's an issue for others), would you mind mentioning that in a reply to this comment? Cheers!

What's the source on the last image in this post with all of the annotated sizes? That's a really wonderful image!
