comment What is the optimal LaTeX WYSIWYG editor/platform (quality/price) for Windows 8?
Instead of texmaker, you could try TeXnicCenter : texniccenter.org Very stable, productive, but not WYSIWYG (would you care while writing a whole book ?).

it doesn't work for me : no such encoding as T2A.

comment Make hyphenated words in PDF searchable
Indeed : I tried the provided MWE under Linux with Evince, ePDFreader and Okular. Verdict : no, no, yes.

comment How to annotate PDF files generated by pdflatex?
The link above seems to be dead (november 2012). My Evince doesn't properly detect the pdfannotations ; however, okular does anyway.

comment How to add vertical space between two lines of tables
And even [-4pt] if you want to shorten the vertical space, it works also.

comment Display colored text in Adobe Acrobat Reader
I don't see any problem here : just tried with Okular 0.15.3, Adobe Reader 9.5.1, epdfview 0.1.8 and even PDF Xchange Viewer 2.5 (all under KDE 4.9). Check your install of Adobe Reader (by the way, under Linux you don't really need Adobe reader since there are plenty of good readers).

comment How to postpone the set up of a conditional?
Oh it could be that I mistakenly borrowed my file from the bad solution, not from the good one. I got : No file apndx3.aux. [1{/var/lib/texmf/fonts/map/pdftex/updmap/pdftex.map}] ! Missing number, treated as zero. <to be read again> \protect l.36 \howmanypages

comment How to postpone the set up of a conditional?
Works fine; I just think there is a minor error, e.g. the line \space plus an appendix of \printpages{\appendix@pages}% should be \space including an appendix of \printpages{\appendix@pages}% isn't it ?

Hello, I think this is the best solution (in my opinion), quite simple and elegant.

OK, this works but produces an error at the first compiler pass.

Great ! I'll check this tomorrow. Anyway, I was convinced it was necessary to write and read directly to the aux file, that was the trick you just implemented. Thank you.

comment How to postpone the set up of a conditional?
More details : I had the idea of putting a \label{append} within the appendix (easy) and to define in the preamble a macro like this : \def\apndx{\ref{append}}. When the appendix is present, \apndx gets a value, fine. Else the compiler sends a warning (normal) and \apndx seems to get the value ?? and not \relax.
