comment How to be 100% sure what you see is what everyone else sees?
I compiled the same latex file on linux and windows. On windows (miktex) I get the pdf file size to be 934,355 bytes and on Linux with texlive 2013, the pdf file is 864,217 bytes. But when looking at the pdf files, I can't see any difference on the screen. So I am sure this has to do with what fonts are used on windows vs. linux or other meta data added to the pdf file on window vs. Linux. Screen shot: !Mathematica graphics again, same exact Latex source. Same images. Everything is the same. Just different platform/distribution. (need to do a pdfdiff...)

comment Relative paths for \input and building from different directories
I am lazy, so I put my include file in $HOME (only have one include file), since that is searched by default by Latex. Otherwise, as others said, use $TEXINPUTS

comment How to make fbox fit automatically around wide equations using empheq package
Thanks, it works. I had to compile the file more than one time to see the frame around for some reason. Nice idea of using \end{tikzpicture}. How to remove all the other frames and lines that are showing up and just leave the frame around the equations?

comment What can I use to typeset MATLAB code in my document?
fyi, I get "if" in blue, but "end" in red, for the same "if else end" block. This is texlive 2013 using miktex. Screen shot: !Mathematica graphics other than this, it looks good.

comment why \usepackage{tablefootnote} puts the footnote at random locations
@GonzaloMedina Yes, sure. I used this package only because it was suggested to use when making footnotes in tables. But below the table will be just as good if possible.

comment can one use \figure with the grid-system package?
@cmhughes yes, when I removed figure it worked. I wish documentation of the package said that so new users would know. If you like to post this as answer so I can accept it. thanks.

comment can one use \figure with the grid-system package?
@DavidCarlisle I was using texstudio on windows, which gives different error and did not notice the error changes when I switch to Linux to compile the file so I can more easily copy the error. texlive 2013 on Linux gives the error I show. But texstudio on windows gives the error you show. Will correct the question now with the correct error message

comment Package for more creative text formatting in latex
wow! Tikz is just like inDesign now (but better because one can do math with it). very nice. I am going to learn Tikz once someone puts a GUI front end to it :)

comment Mathematica equations to LaTeX but equation is too long, how to split it?
Could you post the Mathematica expression itself? i.e. in Mathematica own expression?

Try PDF-chain, and not DVI->PDF chain. That is what I have and it works.

comment is it possible to add dashed lines between rows/column of pmatrix from amsmath?
Thanks for the answer.Unfortunately I can't use it with SWP now as I said, I can't change the code after \begin{document} as SWP does not understand array so the above will not display on the GUI. But please keep this answer, it is useful and I can use it when I graduate to using raw Latex one day.

comment is it possible to add dashed lines between rows/column of pmatrix from amsmath?
@egreg Yes, ofcourse it does. But then why would I use the GUI in the first place? :) I am trying to typeset very complicated matrix with lots of math (aerodynamics have so many subscripts and superscripts) and it is much easier to do it using SWP at this time. I could not do it using raw Latex. Not good yet. I'll be late finishing the HW if I write all this using raw Latex.

comment Alternatives to LaTeX
I tried MathMagic plugin with inDesign. It was terrible. It is just like using the equation editor with Word. Has to go through loops to finally enter an equation. One equation. That is it. After 10 minutes of using it, I uninstalled the whole thing, and also uninstalled indesign (was trial version). With no direct Latex support inside indesign, I mean direct support, indesign will never make it in science, math and engineering. Ok for magazines and articles. Nothing more.
