A computer science lecturer at University College London. I do stuff in logic, theorem proving, program analysis and verification. I'm a very enthusiastic TeX/LaTeX user, most days.

I also run a small site for LaTeX beginners in spanish: LaTeX Fácil.

comment Why do we use the Latex logo when referring to Latex in text?
I always thought that this is done simply to show off the fact that it can be done. (And I think it is a good thing!)

The post from Apple Support seems to be gone now, but I think that I've found the filters at: github.com/joshcarr/Apple-Quartz-Filters

Hmm.. the code of those first two examples look exactly the same.

After making this change, remember to clear your auxiliary files so that the error doesn't persist!

comment How to make a list of unbreakable items?
@glaz666, I edited the code to take this into account. It's not a particularly elegant solution, and I haven't tested it, but I guess you could give it a try.

@math maybe you can add your solution as a new answer on the original question?

comment How do I ask beamer to exactly fill up a slide?
Yes, thanks for the help. I still think this answer is a bit far from being a complete solution; but at least it points to “a direction” of how to implement this. I'll award you the bounty as there is no other answer. Will try to work more on it myself and see if I can eventually produce something more robust, perhaps suitable for publishing as a package. Thanks!

comment How do I ask beamer to exactly fill up a slide?
See my updated gist, I think that items with subitems and equations or other environments still don't have the proper spacing.

comment How do I ask beamer to exactly fill up a slide?
I'm also working trying to turn this solution into something that could be individually selected as an option per slide.

comment How do I ask beamer to exactly fill up a slide?
This is looking very good! A problem I've found, though, is that the first use of an \item within an itemize won't be able to read any optional arguments, e.g. I can't write \item<+-> for overlays.

comment How to iterate over a comma separated list?
Nice! Although for key=value items I would mention \keyval_parse:NNn instead, as this is the actual function doing just the parsing (instead of the more high-level option/key handling).

comment How to create a squiggle arrow with some text on it in TikZ?
Why is the counter needed for the node name? I seem to be able to replace the node name with a fixed value and everything still works.

comment booktabs: What is the difference between \toprule and \hline
I would move the picture from the end nearer to the top in the "short answer". I actually think the picture is the shortest answer there is!

comment How to enter symbol consisting of 4 points
I also think that the symbol should perhaps be typeset in math mode. But shouldn't it be a \mathord?

Just in case someone is looking at this question looking for a way to set default frame options (in general): my answer here might provide some help.
