comment Running out of main memory when using loops in TikZ
@PaulGaborit, I removed the empty nodes and increased the loop to what it would ideally be and hit the same errors, whether externalizing or not. Did you do anything special to get it to compile?

Oh, wow. This works perfectly, but it will take me some time to wrap my head around the syntax. Thanks!

I've never used luatex. Then again, no one has ever accused me of being a purist.

Thank you very much for the kind explanations. None of these ideas were obvious to me, so thank you for taking the time to explain them to me.

2. Using the cap=rect option on the black major tick lines gave the results I was hoping for. 1. I am having trouble figuring out where to put the [x=-1cm] option. How can I be sure that everything will be to scale if I leave it up to the TikZ coordinate system?

Fourteen rulers on a single sheet of paper. This will eventually be plotted on a continuous feed plotter that holds paper slightly larger than 1.20 meters in width.

Does it make any difference if, instead, you use (add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook 'TeX-PDF-mode)

Would using \chapter*{Introduction} solve your problem?

comment How to create a table with merged columns and rows, and wrapped text, like in MS Word?
@PredragPunosevac, could I entice you into working the example above as an answer to this question? Not the final result, but the workflow. I use a combination of org-modein Emacs, "Save as CSV" in Excel and pgfplotstable, but when it comes to multirows and multicolumns I get sad, sigh in resignation and just go at it by hand after creating an initial template.

Thanks. That seemed like it would take me about 20 minutes and more pain than warranted. So many lines!

Just out of curiosity, how long does it take you to whip up an example like this?

revised How to achieve nomenclature entries like: symbol, Description, Dimension and unit, etc?
Glaring typo in the title. Trivial one-letter fix, but I think it's important enough.
