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.

comment How can a package be listed on CTAN but not be available in Tex Live?
@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.

Seems to be a really stupid spammer. Just see his user page tex.stackexchange.com/users/53810/alan-ross Full of spam!

@alanross If it worked for all your books, why the hell you don't just use what worked so far? Are you just spammimg? Two out of three 5-star reviews of your Kakuro book seem to be written by yourself. Okay, i got the message! Score adjusted EOT

@alanross First, you say you don't want to compose images and give a format like 123456789. Then you have "proved it" and you magicly have images. Okay, use them! Are you just trolling? With this confusing question style nobody can help you!

@alanross What do you mean with computer format? Can you export to a standard format like 81 or Simple Sudoku? I've written a bash script createlpsudoku, which transform Sudoku formats into lpsudoku environments that can be used in a LaTeX document. See: logicpuzzle.square7.de/createlpsudoku and ctan.org/tex-archive/graphics/pgf/contrib/logicpuzzle

I'm using logicpuzzle.sty + qqwing and a bash script to automaticly creating a Sudoke magazine, see: logicpuzzle.square7.de/lpsmag and logicpuzzle.square7.de/texdoku! Up to now it is really unclear want you really want to do! Create puzzles or just composing existing puzzle images on a page?

comment Can I make an “abbreviation expansion” in PDF visible?
@StephanLehmke The main differnece is, that PDF Text Markup Annotations are well defined in the PDF Reference and the highlighting is done in the viewers! They might also look a bit different in different viewers. \pdfmarkupcomment just tells the viewer to use its 'Squiggly' highlight.

comment Can I make an “abbreviation expansion” in PDF visible?
@StephanLehmke Maybe a bit late, but \pdftooltip just boxes any material (text, graphic, ...) and just uses the size and position to calculate where to place the tooltop. If want to have light gray underline, you are free to do it on your own, e.g. in \myulpdftt!

comment \write18 encoding
Yes, this works with pdflatex and utf8 encoding. There are still encoding problems, when using latin1 instead. Anyway, thank you very much, Mrs.(!!!) Fischer ;-)

comment What kind of data can be gleaned from a PDF created in LaTeX?
For pdfcomment simply use the final option -> so no PDF annotation will be typeset
