Thinking about it, my previous comment is probably worth a question on its own...

comment How is a TeX document written when using LuaLaTeX?
"Don’t use any package that changes the fonts; use fontspec commands instead." This is the critical and IMHO most intimidating part for people that try to switch from pdflatex to lualatex. The fontspec documentation is big and complex. What I am notoriously missing is a simple translation table for existing LaTeX font packages: What to write instead of e.g., \usepackage{charter} or \usepackage[scaled=0.86]{beramono}` or \renewcommand{\sfdefault}{cmbr} to get the same output? How can I use lualatex without having to become an expert in all issues of font handling?

comment Paths of `pgfimages` in beamer templates
"This can drastically reduce the file size if you use an image repeatedly". In fact, \includegraphics automatically detects multiple inclusions and stores the image only once into the resulting PDF.

comment Paths of `pgfimages` in beamer templates
Simple workaround: \IfFileExists{art/example.pdf}{\pdfdeclareimage[...]{test}{art/myexample.pdf}}{‌​\pdfdeclareimage[...]{test}{myexample.pdf}}, which could of course be further improved by moving this into a macro and maybe also checking the second path with \IfFileExists.

comment How can/should I include annotated images?
Looks awesome. However, If try "Choose File" I can select a file, but it seems to get never uploaded. Also the LaTeX code doesn't change. (Safari 7.1.4 on MacOS 10.9.5)

comment Specify which overlays to take from another file
From your question it is not completely clear to me, how you want the local overlay specifications to interact with the included ones. Should the "last two overlays" from the picture [a] appear in steps 2 and 3 on "Second Slide" (as above), or [b] as steps 3 and 4 (i.e., after the items), or [c] as steps 1 and 2 (i.e., together with the items)?

comment Is there a way to put some of my project's files in a separate folder?
Hm... I remember I had that problem as well, but don't know exactly how I solved it. It may help if you invoke bibtex from the out folder, i.e. cd out;bibtex mythesis; cd-. If you are using biblatex anyway (which I have been doing for a couple of years now), you could also use biber, which provides an --output_directory option.

Try to add the output directory itself to TEXINPUTS. You may also consult kpsewhich --show-path .pfa | less to debut the search path.

comment texlive lineo and fourier packages for CentOS 7?
Well, in my experience the Ubuntu packages often point to the right name even on other systems, therefore I mentioned it. Anyway, there is always the option to download and install lineno.sty manually from CTAN.

@hugomg: I didn't comment on the output part, as you have already solved it. --output-directory is the key. (I use it all the time.)

comment texlive lineo and fourier packages for CentOS 7?
packages.ubuntu.org suggest that it is in texlive-humanities. Maybe worth a try.
