I’m a cognitive scientist, specializing in language, at Queen Mary University of London. I teach an Intro to Latex course each year from incoming graduate students. I’ve undertaken several substantial editorial jobs in latex and am always looking to improve my tex skills.

comment Recalibrating \hline vertical spacing to that of \cline
Thanks for this. For the record, I'd still be curious to know explicitly how cline and hline differ in their definitions: is there some reason not to alter the dimensions associated with hline?

comment Index shouldn't start new page
One facet of this solution (which is otherwise very nice) is that, on the opening page of the index, the righthand column starts at the top of the page. I think it would look neater if the top entry of the right column were aligned with the top entry of the left column. Is that possible? Thanks. (Sorry I can't post a pic in this comment.)

comment Index that picks up on example numbers, not page numbers
Thanks for this. I'm still trying to come up with something myself. I've upvoted in the meantime.

@Christian, Henri: Maybe the mystery language is Pennsylvania Dutch: it's sort of nativized American

@JohnKormylo: Are you suggesting: (a) make the index pick up on line number; (b) make the line number counter pick up on example numbers?

comment Overriding printer scaling defaults from within LaTeX
Thanks for this. This is an issue that's going to arise for me again in a couple of months. I'll give your suggestion a go then.

comment Organization of a commentary book
Have you got some pictures of your desired output? This sounds a little like something that I needed to do and that I tweaked a footnote package for (but you wouldn't need the endnote element, it seems). tex.stackexchange.com/questions/60942/…

comment Temporarily resetting figure counters within a chapter
Thanks for this more general solution. I'll look into capt-of (especially if the publisher I'm using usually prints lists of figures/tables).
