comment What are the new features in TikZ/pgf 3.0?
wow, that code looks almost like one sees in normal looking languages. A normal looking function definition and even a normal looking "if then else". May be I should switch to Latex programming from now on. This is very good news. Can one call these functions from Latex outside \begin{tikzpicture}? Or these functions can only be used inside tikzpicture?

comment How to include multiple pdf pages using \foreach as tikzpicture?
Thanks. That is very useful. I did find what was causing the error I was getting Paragraph ended before \pgffor@dots@stripcontext was complete. I updated my question. So case is now all closed. Thanks for your input.

comment How to include multiple pdf pages using \foreach as tikzpicture?
I am using includepdf{} but thought I can get more control by using tickzpicture. But mainly I wanted to know why the loop did not work using foreach. I'll play more with it to see. I am newbie in programing in Latex.

comment How to include multiple pdf pages using \foreach as tikzpicture?
I did not know that overlay requires an existing page, I thought it will create new pages and load the pdf pages on top from the file. But now I understand that a page have to exist first. I still like to know how to use the LOOP to load pages as pictures. But without the use of overlay confusion I have. May be I will make separate question on this later for that to make it more clear.

I tried this \begin{document} test \installbackgrounds[17]{file2.pdf}\end{document} but the pdf file is not loaded? it looks like your solution for putting background on existing pages? But I need to actually include the external pdf pages in the document. Not as background to existing pages, but as new pages. thanks.

comment Too many math alphabets used in version normal when using 4 packages only
thanks for the explanation of cause of error. I can't edit the equations, since these are auto-generated each time I run the program. Instead, I will remove one of the packages in this case. I am not sure I understand why this error show up in this file only, and not in any other file, since I use those 4 package in my common include file and never saw this error. I assume Maple code {\it a1} is then generating new math alphabet? In this case, Maple should not be doing this.
