comment Crossing out sentences
It works with every viewer that implements PDF! OTOH, there are viewers, which promise to be PDF viewers, ... Sorry, but i've lost passion and interest to be up to date with this mess

comment How to use downloaded fonts with pdfLaTeX on Ubuntu
@Anony-Mousse Can you please open a new question about how to use installfont-tl. Then I can give a detailed answer. That's not possible here in a comment.

comment How to use downloaded fonts with pdfLaTeX on Ubuntu
@Anony-Mousse What did you do exactly? Did you use -l without specifying a directory? If you want to install the font into your local TeX tree, then don't use -l at all! installfont-tl uses $TEXMFLOCAL by default!

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.

comment File size generated from Pdflatex is too big
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.
