comment Mail merge using datatool with letter class
Thanks! Any idea why I get two numbered pages that are blank except for $ \Delta = \Delta $ ?

comment Mail merge using datatool with letter class
That does it. Thanks! But now I have another question. My MWE was too M. When I add back \usepackage{hyperref}, \usepackage[businessenvelope]{envlab}, and \makelabels I get illegal number in definition. Can I not add back envelopes? Would I be better served doing this operation in Python? Or even R? Thanks!

comment Hide output, but maintain the cross-references
Yes, I agree completely. After this ordeal I have pared down use of less common packages. The tables with ifmmode come from the Stata package estout, which is a big part of my workflow and otherwise a godsend. estout also prints tables to .rtf and .csv, so I think when I come across cases like this (coauthors joining a paper later in the cycle, but that aren't LaTeX users) I'll verbatim out the tables, latex2rtf the document, and write the tables to .rtf in Stata and add them back downstream.

comment Hide output, but maintain the cross-references
You're right that the references work fine. But the tables come through as garbage (at least mine do, maybe because of ifmmode and other macro calls) and I wanted to avoid having to manually remove them. In fact, they often crash latex2rtf. My partial solution is to wrap tabular environments in verbatim environments. Then I find the associated table and cut-and-paste.

This is the solution as asked. I'm getting increasingly wary of complicated solutions for my own sanity. I think at this point the clearer solution is to get new coauthors.

Thanks. Now I get errors about \subcaption, \ContinuedFloat, and \phantomcaption called outside of float.

comment Vim LaTeX suite now doubles my double parentheses and braces
@Papiro - Thanks! I knew this question had to exist, I just couldn't get the search terms right. Closing as a duplicate.

comment Verbatim environment with catchfilebetweentags package
@StevenB.Segletes - Thanks. This might be my ultimate solution if verbatim won't work inside tags. I can't append `\` to each line inside my econometrics suite, but that should be easy enough to script.

comment How to use LaTeX tables with MS Word/PowerPoint
Thanks, all. Good points about the resolution/size problems with the pdf solution. I'm sure that leads to unpredictable results. I learned that if you save tables to .rtf (Stata can) or .xlsx, then you end up with a good-enough solution. You can link to the file (link in question) and when you reopen the PowerPoint/Word file the links update, which is good-enough if you can't avoid PowerPoint/Word.

comment How to use LaTeX tables with MS Word/PowerPoint
Thanks. So maybe the best solution in this case is to generate one exactly cropped pdf per table? I'll have to see if I can do that programmatically. In any case that may be easier than converting some people. :-) thanks.

comment Generate .tex output from .bib file to cut and paste
Ah, OK. I think this is much better. :) They should be OK with this approach. Thanks! I will close as a duplicate.

Thanks! This does it, too.

comment Converted EPS not found with TeX Live 2012 and Windows 8
Thanks! FWIW, I added the dEPSCrop option so that ps2pdf doesn't embed in the eps file in a full page pdf file. That is, I run ps2pdf -dEPSCrop gz_figure_1.esp.

@DavidCarlisle -- Wow. That does it. The file must be in the same directory with epstopdf? I tried full paths, but I guess it has to be same directory. Thanks!

comment Can I use natbib in beamer, but omit the bibliography?
Wow. Thanks! I still haven't made the switch to biblatex (and likely won't) so this is handy.

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)!

comment Tips and tricks to tightly couple LaTeX paper and Beamer presentation
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.
