comment Remove all body text from book class with nested files
@cfr -- I have about 150 pages of notes, so I'd prefer something more programmatic. I am working on a batch script solution, but it seems like I should be able to "script" this entirely in LaTeX, I just don't know where to start.

comment Get appearance of slides class with sections and smaller title
In addition to the font size changes above, I add the following to the preamble. \usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry} \usepackage{textcomp} \renewcommand{\familydefault}{\sfdefault} \usepackage{cmbright}

comment Get appearance of slides class with sections and smaller title
Thanks for updating your answer. For me, changing the font macros is a better approach than changing the paper size so that I can generate a print-out. But making the paper A6 and changing to sans serif fonts makes the notes readable on a smartphone.

comment Get appearance of slides class with sections and smaller title
Thanks! Very cool. But is there a way to get larger font sizes? I will project this in a screen. I can handle sans serif fonts with \renewcommand*\familydefault{\sfdefault}, but how can I get text larger than 12pt?

@Mico -- I use chicago with natbib. Is there one that gives Author (Year) in body of paper that you suggest? Thanks!

comment Convert .tex to .tex, but replace \ref{} with actual numbers
@PaulGessler -- Thanks. I've used latex2rtf before. In general I prefer Pandoc, but latex2rtf may be my best option for this. Thanks.

comment Convert .tex to .tex, but replace \ref{} with actual numbers
I agree this is an odd request. But this is easier than converting some people to LaTeX (usually impossible) and would allow me to generate a .docx that other could edit. If it can't be done, then it can't be done.

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.

comment Hide output, but maintain the cross-references
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.

comment Hide output, but maintain the cross-references
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.
