comment Non numbered chapter* header issue
Your interpretation of 'minimal' is slightly unusual.

comment Apply macro to .tex file and get a new .tex file
For a simple case, just use search and replace in your editor, or use sed. The only thing that can deal with every possibility is TeX itself.

comment natbib problem with Inspire bibitem
There is no way for LaTeX to determine the author and year from the information you have provided. The natbib package documentation explains how to provide this via an optional argument to \bibitem. However, I would recommend using BiBTeX to do it automatically.

comment PSfrag isn't working to add LaTeX symbols to eps figures
I think the problem might be that you are trying to replace part of a string, rather than the whole string. Section 8 of the psfrag package manual might help you. Otherwise, please make the .eps file available for download and add a link to your question.

comment Failure to insert into document an .eps figure generated by OriginPro 8
Can you make the problematic eps file available for download and add a link to your question? Faulty eps code could be the source of the problem.

@Aradnix --- The graphicx package should be used in both cases.

comment hyperref and \renewcommand\appendix
The hyperref package redefines a lot of LaTeX internals. Problems are usually avoided by loading it at the end of your preamble. However, in this case your redefinition will be overwritten if you do that. What effect are you trying to achieve?

comment Image sizing screwed up after updating TexLive
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about an issue with a jpg file that is not related to TeX.

comment Image sizing screwed up after updating TexLive
No problem; the lack of an image hosting facility here is a bit of a nuisance. I'll start the process of closing this question since the problem turned out to be unrelated to TeX.

Please make the jpg file available for download and add a link here. Also, please edit your question to include a complete example that reproduces the problem. Without these, it may be difficult for anyone to help you.

comment eps images in latex beamer class
Can you make the eps files available for download and add links to your question? Also, please make you example code complete; the problem could be caused by something elsewhere in the presentation.
