comment Renaming section levels?
This is mostly, academic but with the other page you linked to, I can wrap each \input invocation with a \levelup or \leveldown environment to have full control over the section depth of the input files I've already created. This is really marvelous.

THIS IS PERFECT THANK YOU!

There are indeed \subsection-level headings in the file and I had not thought of relative sectioning but will have to keep in mind in the future, though @Werner's solution is exactly what I need!

comment Beamer or MS Powerpoint/LibreOffice Impress?
Good to know but seems maybe too low-level for me at this point.

comment Beamer or MS Powerpoint/LibreOffice Impress?
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).

comment Beamer or MS Powerpoint/LibreOffice Impress?
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.

I also added an example in my last edit.

comment Can I use hanging indentations for my bibliography references with bibtex?
Yes, I use natbib and I've edited my question to say it's the bibliography that I want to indent.

comment natbib: temporary citation for missing references?
Oh I see, so it would have to be done in the .bib file. But I know the first authors and year to use in the citations (so I can be more clear to myself than dummy), I just need to go retrieve the entries. ;)

comment Implicit newline at the end of each paragraph?
The parskip package is exactly what I needed - but the simplicity of this answer is nice too. When I try to compile with @tohecz answer though I get ! LaTeX Error: Missing \begin{document}..

Yes, looks that way. Thanks.

comment Subscript vertical position dependent on presence of superscript - how to change?
Thanks -- elegant but I will keep this in mind as an example of xparse...

comment How to put algorithm and figure(s) side by side?
@Werner: thanks for the comment! I've been doing this for years and have been ignoring the overfull warnings... Ha, now I know how to fix that. I forgot about the \noindent too - I usually set \parindent 0pt in my preamble for most of my reports... the other option would be to enclose the tabular expression in \begin{center}...\end{center}.

comment biblatex: multiple styles
Thanks -- that was very helpful. Guess biblatex is not for me yet!
