comment Tips and tricks to tightly couple LaTeX paper and Beamer presentation
@MikeRenfro -- Ah, thanks for the link to the workflow section! I will give this a try (but AndrewStacey has a very good point about my attempts to shave 15 minutes at the cost of boring an audience to death). Please post as an answer and I'll accept.

@AndrewStacey -- Thanks for the grounding! Good point. The clean slate approach has serious advantages over trying to save 15 minutes here and there. Thanks!

+1 for Sweave (knitr is next on the list for me to learn)!

Maybe the laziest/lamest example would be keeping the section titles and organization the same. Or keeping the same tables and graphs in both files.

comment Tips and tricks to tightly couple LaTeX paper and Beamer presentation
@MikeRenfro -- Yes (although I didn't know about beamerarticle, which will come in handy elsewhere, I'm sure). I am just looking for any tips/tricks/packages on making the presentation match the paper. There may not be any other than starting the beamer file from a relatively finished version of the paper then updating the presentation as the paper evolves.

Where can I find bibentry? I can't find it in the TexLive package manager on a Win 7 install. Thanks!

comment Cite in body of document, but omit from references (i.e., opposite of \nocite)
@Werner -- No, bibtex. In the near term I won't have the time/energy to switch, but should I add that to my todo list? Other than this odd request I have been very happy with the bibtex feature set.

@Mico -- Brilliant! I wanted to have one reference for the subject paper (I am a PhD student writing paper summaries for a seminar), but I can leave that off. Your solution is much more practical and lets me get full citations later. Thanks! Should I close this question?

comment Get combine a `sidewaystable` with a `subfloat` from `subfig`
@anon -- Thanks. I didn't know that I could wrap multiple tabulars in one sidewaystable. Is there a good book on LaTeX? I learn most of this stuff in a vacuum, but the other programs I use (R, Stata) have consoles and help commands. Thanks!
