comment Changing biblatex footcite style to use square brackets around the citation
Wow! Amazing. It works. A minor thing now is that the footnotes are followed by a period. The documentation also mentions that \footcite exposes this behaviour. But it's not the required style. So if it's possible to get rid of that, it'd be super cool. I think I understand that the various used bibmacros are to look at, but I have a hard time finding out how the bibmacros are defined. So a pointer here would be appreciated. Many thanks!

comment Changing biblatex footcite style to use square brackets around the citation
Cool! Thanks. It works perfectly. A side question, hopefully related enough to not having to open a new question: Is it possible to only bracket the reference and not the pre or post text, i.e. \cite[P. 23]{foo} shall yield ¹ [foo], P. 23. If it's not related enough, I will open a new question.

comment How to make pgfplotstable read tables with macros
You, sir, are awesome. Thanks. It works with the small caveat of one having to provide the optional argument. But that's fine. It looks much like dark magic to me and I am afraid I would have been able to come up with that myself. Can you explain a little what it does, if it's not too much to ask for?

I mean for an entire text. Pretty much like here but in a more pdfLaTeX way.

comment biblatex: Single out specific bibliography entries
@Seamus, is it also possible to count the number of entries in each category? If I added manually via \addtocategory and \cite then I could increment a counter myself, but if I automatically create the categories and cite a random number of entries, I might want biblatex to count for me.

comment What can cause generated PDF document whose text are not correctly copyable?
Hm @Werner. I don't know much about PDF, but rumour has it, that you can remove or replace the (easily) machine readable text but still have something that renders text nicely. So a human (or OCR) could indeed read the text while pdftotext could not. Do you happen to know anything about that?

comment What can cause generated PDF document whose text are not correctly copyable?
My test document created with \randomize from the randtext package does not seem to randomize anything for me. I can happily copy and paste with evince and also pdftotext returns all the typeset text.

comment Is it possible to produce a PDF with un-copyable text?
A use case that comes to my mind is to push back on services like turnitin.com which use my data to make money. I don't allow my documents to be used in that way thus I want to produce a document that either contains no copyable text, scrambled text or a defined text but still keep a printable document.

That method does not work me. My evince allows me happily to copy and paste the text. Also pdftotext extracts all the available text. So this method does not work.
