comment File size generated from Pdflatex is too big
@daleif That shouldn't be the case: "These fonts, or suitable substitute fonts with the same metrics, must always be available in all PDF readers and so need not be embedded in a PDF. PDF viewers must know about the metrics of these fonts." OTOH, we've just had a thread in the german pdf newsgroup, that a bank sent account informations without embedded Arial-BoldMT causing immense trouble under Linux.

You can use one of the Standard Type 1 Fonts (Standard 14 Fonts) (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…) (Times. Courier, Helvetica) and forbid embedding them. PDF readers must have 'local' copies of these fonts. Embeded fonts are quite big if you only have 50kb. But this is just as braindead as your instructor.

comment Tooltip with glossary items
No, this can not work. Both, the link and the tooltip are so called PDF annotations. These define a rectangle and an action, which will be performed after a click or a mouse-over on the defined area. In the same area one annotaion overlays the other. Links seem to have priority.

comment How to overlay a call-out box on text?
@ShalabhJain Then you can maybe tinker something with Tikz's callout library! See: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/146225/… or tex.stackexchange.com/questions/131012/notes-on-sentences/…

comment How to overlay a call-out box on text?
@ShalabhJain For constant overlay you can use FreeText annotations (type=callout). See: mirrors.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/pdfcomment/doc/… OTOH, these annotaions must be placed by hand on the page and are therefore not very handy!

comment Practical use of lua
Why not? ;-) -shell-escape is the important part! If you want to use lua in your document, then it works only with lualatex. OTOH, getmap calls an external lua script, which means the script is executed with texlua. That's the lua interpreter of luatex. This works for all engines including pdflatex. But it needs the -shell-escape switch to allow the execution of external scripts.

comment Using cabin cooperatively
You could install the font in a TDS-complaiant way in your git repository. Then all team members have to declare this directory as new local TeX tree, run texhash and include the map file. OTOH, using an OTF font is easier!

comment How can a package be listed on CTAN but not be available in Tex Live?
@norbert It seems i misinterpreted pakietomat.wordpress.com/2014/05/27/getmap. It states - after the translation ;-) - to install TL2014 to use getmap. At that time there was only TL2014 pretest available.

@Jubobs I think you just have to wait a little bit. The freeze of TL2013 was April 17th. My getmap package (uploaded in May) is at the moment also not available in TL2014. Although, I've read in a blog post that is was part of TL 2014 pretest. Maybe they just forgot to copy these packages or they simply need another day for it. I don't know if they have to recreate the packages for TL2014.
