comment Decrease spacing between lines of paragraph in longtable.
The line spacing wasn't reduced because it is not related to \arraystretch. :) Maybe \linespread{<value>} could be of use, but I'm not too keen on this table layout.

comment Explain the Kile LaTeX editor feature that deletes my root file text
It's not deleting the content, this is called context folding. As @Sean tells you, click it again.

comment Framed environment with striped background
@cmhughes: Oh no, I've been spotted! :) I'm planning something along these lines, but a huge block with a striped background doesn't look so pleasant to the eye (it works with smaller chunks), so I have to use it carefully. :) By the way, we are making some huge progress on the tool, it's more stable than ever and with very cool features, I am sure you will love it. :)

Gonzalo, your code is fantastic, thank you! Now I am in a very uncomfortable situation, I might replace mdframed by tcolorbox. :)

comment Framed environment with striped background
@barbara: you mean my second image? :) Sorry for the unequal spacing, I wrote a quick and dirty example! You are absolutely right, \strut does solve it; I can also add a innerbottommargin option to my mdframed environment and make things display as expected.

comment in texworks under windows, latexmk hangs
I think there might something about the .exe call because, at the end of the day, programs like latexmk.exe and arara.exe are simply wrappers to their corresponding scripts found with the TL infrastructure. A possible way of testing this is: (a) in Program, add the full path to the embedded Perl interpreter shipped with TL; (b) the first argument must be the full path in your system to latexmk.pl; (c) all usual latexmk arguments would follow (namely, -pdf and the full file path, represented by the TeXworks variable $fullname). Hope it helps.

comment latexmk compiling the wrong file in texworks
Oh I'm sorry, I don't know why TeXworks is hanging. :( As it is, try to add $fullname to the list by clicking the + button and hit OK, it should be ok.

comment latexmk compiling the wrong file in texworks
Hello! :) You need to add another argument to TeXworks: $fullname -- as it is, you are only passing -pdf to latexmk, so you need to provide the full path to your file. :) $fullname is a TeXworks variable which will expand during call time to your file. :)
