I’m redefining myself. Please stand by…

comment Can you define what a reference should say in clear text?
Exactly. That's one of the problems. In my case, the file gets regenerated by Mendeley so I would have to move it to another location and modify it right before I'm done with my text. However, I'm still not sure if I would be able to modify the file in such a way so that it looked the way I wanted.

comment How do I write the mathematical version of the greek letter phi when using the babel package to make greek letters upright?
Thanks, I'll save those questions as references if I want to do something similar later. For the time being, this solution fits me perfectly though so there's no reason to change it.

I'm on it. Thanks for all your help. I found the following thread: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/14570/…. I'll see if I can decipher it :)

Well, it seems that what I will have to do is to temporally switch the font of the math environment since I want to use math symbols within the txfonts package (but at the same time, I don't want to change the default font for the math environment). This seems hard :S

I was pretty sure there were some info about this to on SE. Thanks for referring me to the right threads. I'll come back here and mark your answer as accepted as soon as I get it to work :)

Ok, I've checked out txfonts out now and they will do for the greek letters. However, I don't want to change anything else in my document. I only want the txfonts when it comes to greek letters as regular text (I'm happy with the way it looks in the math environment). Could somebody maybe give me a hint to how I should do this because I'm not entirely sure how to do it on my own.

Thanks for the info. I'll look into what you told me (along with checking out the question I linked to) and get back here afterwards. For clarity, what I want to do is to include greek letters in a couple of instances in the text to describe some concepts that I've defined with help of greek letters.

@eudoxos Oh, so cbgreek is something else than the greek alphabet that is used in the math environment?

@Andrey Vihrov, thanks for the tip. I'll try to keep that in mind for next time I'll post. Also, I'll look into XeTeX.

comment My pixel perfect picture gets blurry when compiled in LaTex
I still don't see why my solution wouldn't always work. What I've done is to effectively heightened the resolution of my picture so that it, when it is presented as a smaller image, will be able to show the picture without blurring. If I however send my PDF to someone else and this person don't know how to goof around with the PDF reader, then I'm pretty much screwed.

comment TikZ: Bend text so that it follows a line
OT: It's times like these I'm wondering why I even bother using TikZ. Then again, when I see the final result, I remember why :)

@Martin and Tobi: Thanks. That solved the problem. I had the feeling that I had to use some other command and looked in the manual for the answer but couldn't find it. Good thing you could help me out!

comment TikZ: Bend text so that it follows a line
That's great. There's only one problem left for me now. I'm trying to change the font by putting in "font=\sffamily" on different places (I've declared it as a parameter for the TikZ environment but it seems to be overridden by "decoration.text") but I can't get it to change.

This is great. However, I also want to do exactly the things that Alan Munn suggests.
