I've been using latex for a number of years, mostly for writing papers. I've recently discovered the joys of fontspec, and of being able to use oft fonts for my latex documents. Since then, i've been using latex for pretty much everything (documents, slides). Tikz has also been a recent discovery, and has been of great help. I'm finally able to draw my diagrams and plots exactly like i want. This site has been a great help, and i hope i can give something back.

comment Problem using italics in fonts with optical size feature
@Pouya: Using \textit{} results in exactly the same output. Using \textsl{} the output looks as it should, the correct fonts are used, but i still get the same messages about font shape m/sl not being available, only now at line 5 (the first line of the document).

comment Survey or questionnaire document class or package?
The scanning feature works great. I should also mention that if you run into some problems, be sure to contact the developer. He is really responsive and helpful.

comment Beamer - Put a picture right of the table of contents
i use all the time with beamer... also useful, when using textpos, is to create a grid on the slide, so you know where to place thing. You can add a grid by using \usepackage[texcoord,grid, gridunit=mm, gridcolor=red!10, subgridcolor=green!10]{eso-pic}

comment How to plot parabola in the selected segment using TikZ
Just from looking at it, i would say this would be much easier to do with pgfplots (if you have mathematical expressions for the curves). You can handle the problem of getting the intersection with the sugestions from tex.stackexchange.com/questions/21408/intersections-in-pgfplots
