comment Table including rows of a master table
Hi Peter. I just ran into your note 1, which I didn't notice at the time I copied this code some years ago. I'd consider this is a bug, or at least an unreasonable restriction. However, there's an easy way around it. Namely use: \DTLforeach[\DTLisSubString{#2}{\RowID,}]{#1}{%. I.e. match \RowID, rather than just \RowID. Let me know if that seems correct to you, or if you are missing something. If you think it is correct, consider changing your answer.

comment Suppressing addition of blank page before figure when wrapping long JPEG image
Thanks, egreg. That works well. Can you add some commentary explaining why what you are doing works? Also, I checked out \flushbottom, which I'm not familiar with. But tug.org/texinfohtml/latex2e.html#g_t_005cflushbottom says "It makes all later pages the same height, stretching the vertical space where necessary to fill out the page." What does this do in this context?

Also, where do you use the geometry package?

Hi, David. The image still needs rescaling, though.

Hi Fran. Nice out of the box thinking. Thank you. But wouldn't it be better to just write height=\textheight instead?

comment scrpage2 conflict with fancyhdr
@cfr Well, it's a general question. It doesn't specify what LaTeX class is being used. Actually it doesn't even specify LaTeX.

comment scrpage2 conflict with fancyhdr
Yes, I get that. My attempt at replacing everything with KOMA specific stuff has not been successful, though. I guess I can add my attempts to this question.

comment How can I add “page # of ##” on my document?
@SkippyleGrandGourou \pagestyle{fancy} works for me, but not \thispagestyle{fancy}. I'm using scrartcl.

Maybe add a link to that other post, if it exists?

comment Draft watermark in both margins using the background package
And yes, I think it makes sense for the watermarks to be centered at the text area rather than the page area.

comment Draft watermark in both margins using the background package
Thanks for the clarification, Tom. I didn't quite register that tikzpagenode was a separate package. Would using current page marginpar area be a possible alternative? I.e. putting the text in the center of that area? I'll experiment.

Actually, it would nice to have an automated way to have the text located at the midpoint of the margin width, rather than having to adjust it manually.

comment Draft watermark in both margins using the background package
Well, current page.east does not work, but your current page text area.east does. I'm not sure what the differences between those are.

comment Draft watermark in both margins using the background package
That looks good, thanks. Do you understand why my earlier attempt was not working? I.e. why current page.east does not work, for example?

comment Two images with background package
Your example is not an MWE. What's image.pdf?

Actually, it looks like it is possible. See tex.stackexchange.com/q/134717/3406

comment How to add “DRAFT” along the left/right margin?
How could one put one of these in each margin, in the interests of symmetry? I tried adding a similar stanza for the west. And it does indeed appear in the west, but the one in the east disappeared.

Some elaboration on what the \sigline function is doing would be helpful.

comment Running pythontex from TeX using \immediate\write18 fails
Thanks very much. That works. But I didn't notice any error about the tempfile format. "perhaps with a conditional to detect the presence of the tempfile." Why is that necessary?
