comment EveryShipout errors when using TikZ with conference style
I still think an answer to this question could have been helpful. This question was the #1 Google hit. Our only disagreement is the word "too" in "too localized".

Why was this question closed? I have the exact same error here and found it through Google.

comment Replacing a character with a different one of a different point size
I think you're right. The lowercase "o" is not optimal. Even so, I'd like my question answered out of curiosity. Learning new tricks is nice.

UlrikeFischer: I said it required little manual work. It will take some time for the computer, that is of course true. Also, updating Miktex days before a deadline is just too brave.

Reinstalling Miktex requires very little (manual) work and is surely worth trying rather early.

comment Greek characters in normal and sans serif math mode

What's the difference between cmbr and cmbrm? Anyway, it seems to work. Unfortunately the font does not end up vectorized in my final PDF.

comment Determining what font series are available
If it were only up to me and I didn't have to collaborate or submit TeX files through automated submission systems, I would switch to luatex. Alas, that is not the case.

comment lstlisting with c++: spaces around scope resolution operator
I disagree that code should be typeset in a monospace font. See e.g. the C++ book by Stroustrup.

Both are good suggestions which work! Thanks! If you add them as answers we can mark this question as resolved.

Adding a command \renewcommand{\seriesdefault}{l} also affects my serif font.

comment Why does my PDF render differently in Windows and Linux?
Zoom in very far using Adobe Reader. Is the text vectorized or "bitmapped"?
