comment possible memoir bug with font sizes and \tightlists
Yep, amusing indeed ! I am now going to report a but though, because I noticed that even with both \tightlists and \tightlist, "small" and "footnotesize" itemizes do get too much whitespace around them: i.imgur.com/a8owzi6.png

comment possible memoir bug with font sizes and \tightlists
Thanks David. All your explanation is way above my head, and at the end of the day I still don't know whether this behaviour is a bug or a feature (even memoir seems to have its lot of counter-intuitive impossible-to-guess voodoo !). But your \tightlist workaround does what I wanted, so I'm going to stick to that for now. Cheers.

comment Mix characters from various fonts (in text mode)
Plus, if I decide to got for a \newcommand, then \ensuremath{=} will probably do the trick even in pdflatex.

Thanks for your suggestion. However, I'm looking for a solution which lets me type the regular equals sign.

comment How to get small caps in Classico (texlive 2014)?
This question appears to be off-topic because the problem turned out to be caused by bug, and the bug has since been fixed.

Well. It turns out that my problem was due to a bug in the packaging of the font (some files were missing). The author of classico.sty has uploaded a new version (2014-08-03) to CTAN, and now everything just works great.

kpsewhich uopr8a.pfb prints /opt/local/share/texmf-local/fonts/type1/urw/classico/uopr8a.pfb (I understand this is the expected output)

kpsewhich classico.map returns /opt/local/share/texmf-local/fonts/map/dvips/classico/classico.map which contains this: pastebin.com/H8RL46zY

Adding \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} does change the .fd file which gets loaded (T1URWClassico-LF.fd vs OT1URWClassico-LF.fd) but that's all I notice.

@daleif: I contacted the author of classico.sty, who suggested the problem was that I hadn't enabled the Map file classico.map. However, udpmap-sys --listmaps does display it as "enabled" ! (updmap transcript). I'm stuck.

@daleif: I'm used to macports, and so far it served me well, so I never looked at mactex. but should I ? and BTW I assume my system is up-to-date, since the version number for my classico.sty is 2014-06-26.

Yes, I did the getnonfreefonts thing, but I suspect it to be somehow outdated, as it goes to CTAN and fetches a file called getfont2013. Could that be (part of) the problem ?

comment emacs+auctex: prevent region filling when inserting itemize
Sure. And my point is precisely that I want to be able to type <M-return> at the beginning of each line without having to go fishing for my dashes :-)

comment Is reStructuredText compatible with the memoir class?
thanks for that. However I now use ''pandoc'' (as per suggested in the comments above) and am much happier with it than Rst. cheers.

comment Is reStructuredText compatible with the memoir class?
@Sveinung thanks heaps for telling me about pandoc. I've just dropped docutils for pandoc, and I think I won't need to look back ever (I'm not even going to report the "bug" to docutils :-)

comment Is reStructuredText compatible with the memoir class?
The implementation uses the same code to handle regular sectioning as well: chapters, sections and so on all get their \phantomsection and their \label. This does make some more sense, but yet it still upsets memoir. And now I wonder where I should report the bug: is that a memoir problem, or a docutils bug ?

comment Is reStructuredText compatible with the memoir class?
I agree with your interpretation. My question is: why does docutils claim that it supports memoir when it generates such code (which clear purpose I don't understand either, btw) ?

comment Speeding up minted compilation
calm down you guys :-) I have no idea what T-vim etc are in the first place. As for myself, I'm fine with not getting a "final" document when I say "draft", just as I'm happy with the way graphicx handles "draft".

comment Advantage of LaTeX presentations?
Being a teacher of computer science, I can feel your pain. By now, I actually have completely given up on slides for teaching material. I'm using the chalkboard instead, which is very much more time-efficient as far as preparing the content is concerned, but it is also a bit frustrating. and not very good-looking !
