comment fold/unfold sections to expand in PDF
@cfr Not being able to implement parts of a well defined open format like PDF for more than 10 years (PDF annotations) lies exactly within the definition of crippled. "But it's open source ..." is neither good enough nor an excuse. Lack of quality is lack of quality. There are many other flaws like OCGs, Javasrict API, ... (nobody knows exactly - which is another problem in it self). Naming something a PDF viewer does not necessarily make something a PDF viewer.

comment Error: 'getmapdl' is not recognized as an internal or external command
At home now testing with TeXLive2014/Win, I don't have any problem with your code after adding {Sierra Leone}. See: jklatex.square7.de/download/gm_se_1.pdf So, it's either a problem with Texnicenter or MiKTeX. OTOH, I know for sure getmap worked with MiKTeX at least in the past. Maybe ask a new question with this specific problem with Texnicenter or MiKTeX.

It's not a matter of time, but here in hospital I don't have access to a computer with LaTeX. Maybe I am allowed to leave tomorrow.

Did you also correct the location problem in your \getmap call? Otherwise LaTeX might take \includegraphics as location. I can't test myself as I am in hospital right now!

BTW, your \getmap call is wrong. You must add a location in curly braces!

Are you sure that the Texnicenter call does include the --shell-escape command line option? Does your file compile from the command line with the above option?

Sorry for the bad formating. I'm posting from hospital via smart phone - no editor :-( Maybe, someone can edit the answer!

Acronyms should not have under lengths, so it should not be a problem. But in this case you better use opacity=0

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.
