comment Grammar-checking tool for use with LaTeX?
Since this is asked in 2010, I wonder if there is any update. Could OP consider remove the check mark to encourage more answers? The current answer is still unsatisfactory, leading me to always write in MS Word first then do formatting in Latex.

comment inline knitr code that isn't a simple number
@Yihui I am not sure I understand how to turn a matrix into a string while preserving its block form. Could you tell me the name of the "string processing function"?

comment LaTeXTools: you need to migrate your preferences. See the README file for instructions
Thanks! To be precise, for other Windows users, it's /AppData/Roaming/Sublime Text 2/... instead.

Your solution works perfectly, but I wonder where exactly is the User directory? Is it my personal user dir? In that case I don't see the indicated file ...

comment customizing TEXMFHOME
@jon I found a solution like you said. I modified TEXMFHOME in texmf.cnf. Apparently the syntax is onepath:anotherpath. I did not know that I had to use the colon.

comment customizing TEXMFHOME
@jon sorry for the necro, but what should I do if I want to add 2 directory to the TEXMFHOME? The situation is that I have my master bib file on my Dropbox folder (in a properly structure mytexmf folder) that I share across computer, so I want texlive to search in there also.

comment Change TEXMFHOME per-user
How can I point the TEXMFHOME variable to two texmf folders? I came from miktex and was able to keep the default while adding a personal folder (same structure) as root.

comment Best practice regarding graphics size
Is it possible to specify height in latex as well since the ratio of the graphics also matters? I can specify the width+height in R, then specify width again in Latex, but eliminating one of the two steps would be nice.

comment Best practice regarding graphics size
Is knitr worth learning? I've read multiple opinions about this, and some people insist that data analysis and typesetting should be separate. But I'm not sure what is the reasoning behind that?

comment How to cite newspaper with natbib
I thought about that, but is that the only option? I am afraid that it won't be consistently correct across bib style. I was hoping that there was a dedicated option for newspaper article (which does get cited differently from journal article in academic bibliography)

comment Does Winedt 6.0 jump to the line with error?
Thank you very much! It did work. So essentially, missing brace is something latex just can't deal with. Other errors it can detect okay.
