comment Minimize automatically the page size of the PDF outputs
Mico, thanks for the tip. The \settowidth worked when nothing else did. @MartinScharrer: Is this the best one can do when using the standalone package?

comment Display issues drawing DNA sequences with TikZ
I think using the shorten option to the arrow path is a better choice to stop the arrows obscuring the labels that writing the labels over the arrows. I didn't think such an option existed, so didn't look for it. :-)

comment Display issues drawing DNA sequences with TikZ
One thing I don't understand is, wrt 2 (the double headed arrows issue) you explicitly have latex'- in (for example) \path [latex'-, thick] (leftrow6.one south) edge[out=270, in=270] node {}(tuplebottomrow); In my example, I use just \path[line]... where line is defined with \tikzstyle{line} = [draw, -latex', thick]. I don't understand why one worked and not the other.

comment Programming TeX macros so that they output instructions to rerun the compilation
@cyberSingularity Yes, auctex is not terribly good at this. I wonder if there is any point filing a bug report. It is not very actively maintained. I use emacs, so auctex is convenient if I am in there. In batch mode, I use scons, which is a little smarter.

@cyberSingularity: Add this to the macro? But this creates a dependency on rerunfilecheck, yes? I see the warning if I add that, but auctex ignores it, regardless. Sigh.

comment How to draw arrows between parts of an equation to show the Math Distributive Property (Multiplication)?
@PeterGrill: Auctex (I assume) decides whether it should be run again. In this case, it doesn't think it needs to be. I see that if I run it twice, it does give the correct picture.

comment How to draw arrows between parts of an equation to show the Math Distributive Property (Multiplication)?
Funny, from emacs it does not work. The command it uses is pdflatex -shell-escape -interaction=nonstopmode "\input" peter.tex and with the command the arrows are wrong. Any idea why?

The basic version (bottom of post) does not work for me. I get ERROR: LaTeX Error: Bad math environment delimiter.

Oh, maybe you meant to write (1) and (3) and then (2) on the next line?

@PeterGrill: I guess you might be right about the multiple questions thing. I suppose I was lazy. I'd be interested in a different approach to this, if you feel like providing details.

comment Display issues drawing DNA sequences with TikZ
I think your numbering is a bit off, which confused me. I think (1) and (2) should just be (1) (bleeding issue). Also (3) should be (2) (arrow issue). Are you saying the none caused the problem with the bleeding? Also, curious how you fixed (3) (the alignment issue). Thanks for the impressive help. Let me review and maybe I'll be back with more questions.

comment Display issues drawing DNA sequences with TikZ
Hi Gonzalo. Thanks for the answer. It will take me some time to digest. For (1), what did you need to change? Is this not a bug then? An explanation would be appreciated, so I can avoid the issue another time. I meant the arrows to go the other way. The solution for (4) looks good. Can you point me to a reference in the manual for the \foreach \i [count=\x] syntax used for (6) (the loop)?
