comment Texmaker home/end keys on Mac OS X
Thank you very much, works great! Karabiner is a great thing, generally works much better than the key bindings also for other apps.

comment Included pdf (wallpaper, or includegraphics) has different colors
@doncherry, Thank you very much! I will do so, when I deal with the problem again (currently, I just dont have the time, and I think it would be inappropriate to ask for help when I dont have the time to go and try the suggested solutions).

comment Included pdf (wallpaper, or includegraphics) has different colors
Thanks Heiko! We looked into the PDF, and found that the numbers are slightly different, so we thought it could be a rounding problem between 8-bit integer in Inkscape vs. decimal rgb in LaTeX, and replaced the values in a crafted PS file - problem remains. In fact it is very weird - see my next edit...

Jonas: I remember having that effect, too. I found it helps to just add a white, 100% opaque rectangle in Inkscape to give the png a solid background (or, I believe there is an option somewhere). But this case is different (I just verified it to be sure).

Thanks, Kurt - I will try to avoid such redundancy in the future :-)

comment Included pdf (wallpaper, or includegraphics) has different colors
Thanks - Yes, exactly. The same thing happens with OpenOffice instead of Inkscape. And, my text is 100% opaque, so I would not expect transparency to be an issue...
