Good to know but seems maybe too low-level for me at this point.

Right, I was looking at TexMaths thinking this makes Impress reasonably competitive. The grid is an appealing feature for many reasons too.

This is indeed useful... even works with .1\textwidth units and so on. I'll have to figure out where the grid lines correspond to.

Maybe it's the case that shorter (quicker) presentations are better in Powerpoint and longer ones in Beamer (kind of my view on Word vs LaTeX documents also).

I just learned about the tikz package (today in fact) but it seems very powerful and thanks for the example. Not having to align annotations is appealing :) but in this case it seems like you would have to guess the dimensions of the "TikZ" text you highlighted and recompile over and over until you get the rectangle just right... or am I wrong? Is there a helper tool?

comment insert text into hrulefill
Excellent. This also works too in that if you enclose the hrulefill part in a minipage environment to get the width you want.

comment Citations with no bibliography at the end
Amazing, but I still had to add \bibliographystyle{} before \bibliography{}. Otherwise, this is magical.

comment Can I use hanging indentations for my bibliography references with bibtex?
Thanks, @jon. That may be the case. At some point I will have to go through my (long) preamble to see what is causing a change in \bibsep. I'll report back if I figure this out...

comment Can I use hanging indentations for my bibliography references with bibtex?
Hey thanks, running a tight deadline so haven't gotten a chance to put together an example but filecontents is convenient - didn't know. Also, apparently normalbib option is deprecated in favor of bibliography=normal (mirror.switch.ch/ftp/mirror/tex/macros/latex/contrib/savetrees/…) and then I changed \setlength\bibsep{0pt} (as suggested here: eng.cam.ac.uk/help/tpl/textprocessing/squeeze.html) since I'm using natbib. Greatly appreciate you pointing me in the right direction.
