comment Upgrade MacTex using tlmgr
I still dont feel like I got the point. If tlmgr is the package manager for TeX Live, and its purpose is to upgrade packages, and if TeX Live is a TeX typesetting distribution consisting of a bunch of packages, why am I not supposed to use it to upgrade all of them, thus the distribution? It seemed like it actually did so, but the upgrade system seems to be buggy somehow.

comment Upgrade MacTex using tlmgr
So we are not supposed to use sudo tlmgr update --self --all anymore once there is a new distribution version out? I am not afraid of big downloads, but if there is a package manager available, I was actually happy to use it, just like using npm, rvm, pip, etc…

comment Upgrade MacTex using tlmgr
I went through this tutorial after the problem appeared, and the script did not really update a lot, so I figured that most of the packages were already the latest version due to the tlmgr update before.

comment Whats the appropriate paper size command with xelatex these days?
thanks for the reply. since i was having other problems with that paper, too, i now switched from texworks to this latex-makefile at code.google.com/p/latex-makefile to build it. now that i am using that, the paper size is correctly set to 21×29,7 by using a4paper. this entire latex thing is way too much magic to me... ;)
