comment Lyx: export with tracking changes to pdf
Glad you found it :-) Please also accept your answer (click the tick so it becomes green), as it, well, answers the question.

comment Why do people still use Postscript?
Is this really a problem? I guess your machine happily changes a zillion occurrences in basically no time :-). No, seriously: This is a valid concern, but I would like to understand it's long term impact. So is the worse editability a fundamental problem of PDF ("can never be solved") or is it just a matter of yet missing tools?

comment Why do people still use Postscript?
@percusse: I know the linked question and answers and also quite a bit about PS features. I just think all this misses the point. IMHO, the question is not "what could be done with PS", but "what could only be done with PS" in the context of document typesetting. Is their any "killer feature" wrt. document processing that causes publishers to still insist on PS, because with PDF they could not produce adequate results? I strongly doubt this and think the only reason is: History. The old PS tool chain just works and updating it to PDF would cost money.

All this is right, but IMHO misses the point. What exactly is the benefit of having the printer to solve the differential equations? What cannot be done with PDF?

comment Mark handout slides in beamer package
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find a solution when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

comment Processing Plain Text
Hm... I would probably use sed or perl or something like that: perl -0777 -i.bak -pe 's/\n\n\n(.*)\n\n/\n\n\\section{\1}\n/' plain.txt would reformat plain.txt as desired, but keep a plain.bak backup file in case something goes wrong. If you are using Windows line endings, the RegEx may have to be adapted, though.

comment tikz: mathematical expressions in variable names without pgf macros
Quick shot: (a\the\numexpr\i+1\relax\j). Well, for playing around it would certainly help if you provide a complete and compilable minimal working example (MWE).
