comment Multi-line equations with explanations on some lines
Ok, i figured this out: "reason" bits come out right-aligned if preceded by a single "&" and left-aligned if preceded by double "&&."

My reason bits are coming out right-aligned and I don't see how to left-align them :(

comment How to put a big bracket under different parts of a equation so that I could write e.g. a text specific to that part in the equation?
The link to mathmode manual gives me a 404.

comment What are all the font styles I can use in math mode?
I can offer an explanation of why this answer is so popular: although it references well known documents, it extracts from them the common cases. The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List is, well, comprehensive, so it takes just as much effort to find rarely used symbols as to find commonly used symbols. Your answer fishes out the common cases and is a useful, task-oriented reminder to a majority of users.

comment Sort .bib file from within TexShop
+1 for BibDesk -- its interop with emacs and AucTex is good, meaning I can pound away in emacs, making new references at high speed without mousing, import them every now and then into BibDesk for canonicalization and cleanup, and write them back out to disk for future emacs sessions.

It's possible that some old MacPorts stuff needs to be cleaned out! That's a good tip for me to try, and I can try it later today.

comment Org-mode export to LaTeX: temptation or nuisance?
This is often called "literate programming" and is a fantastically powerful approach (especially if you can get a whole team to buy into it). orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/…

comment Trying to get tikz-cd going
@Qrrbrbirlbel what would the exact syntax for the ampersand replacement option be in my context -- it doesn't work in the context of the \matrix... command that I tried above.
