comment Editing pdfs with a pdf editor not through latex
@TorbjørnT. what are the constraints mentioned? Would the fonts match? What if someone edited a floating image? I read that post prior to posting, but to me, it appeared to be a question on inverse search than on using something different to edit the pdf.

comment TikZ: extend a line along a path
@Tarass Imagine if we drew a line from the focus, F, to (0, \y cm). This line has some associated angle. I want to continue this line at this angle from the point (0, \ycm) outwards. I don't actually want to draw the portion from the focus to the point.

comment TikZ: extend a line along a path
@AndrewStacey you mean the ending points to the rays path, correct? I thought about using the intersections library. I want to keep the path in one argument inside the foreach command. This way the arrows will be on the whole path without multiple scopes if that makes sense.

comment LyX error - 'Document format failure' for file in temporary folder
Have you tried opening the document with a plain tex editor? If it looks fine there, you can try re-saving it and then opening it with Lyx.

That is strange though because back when I asked it, that was the code I used and it worked before.

comment TikZ: automatic line breaking in equal distances
This code appears to not work any more. It works but the lines dont overlay any more.

comment Tikz: rotating point coordinates over a labelled coordinate
@GonzaloMedina both (P) and the hard coded location are defined as the same location. Why does one need a different rotate for this?

comment Tikz: rotating point coordinates over a labelled coordinate
@PaulGessler that is apparent but it doesn't make any sense. They should be the same.

comment Tikz: drawing a straight line down in a rotated scope
@GonzaloMedina Paul Gessler pointed that out. I asked a new question because it doesn't work if we use (0.5, 2) instead of P.

@PaulGessler see my new question about this. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/177421/…

comment Tikz: drawing a straight line down in a rotated scope
@PaulGessler you are right. If we don't name the coordinate and just use (0.5cm, -2cm), it doesn't work though. That is why I was under the impression the opposite rotation wouldn't work.

comment Tikz: drawing a straight line down in a rotated scope
So what I take from this is if I label a point in a scope, that label will be defined by the overall action on it not just its point location, correct?
