comment Is there a way to configure pdflatex to make all but the .tex and .pdf files hidden files?
Right, my point is that this very useful feature (-aux-directory) is more TeX-distro than an editor-specific. IMHO that should be clarified in the answer.

Note, however, that this is a MikTeX-only (hence, Windows-only) solution, as only the MikTeX version of pdflatex supports the -aux-directory option that is used at the bottom.

@Alex: For Adobe Reader as viewer, the situation unfortunately seems to be a bit hopeless: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/38983/… However, with other PDF readers it should work.

@Alex: I used to get it running on Windows and OS X, even though that is a while ago. Please provide exact details about OS and version, LyX and version, and PDF viewer. Maybe I or some other could help you with more specific instructions.

Why not just let the printer driver do the job to scale to whatever paper format you have?

comment LaTeX macro expander
Just posting links is generally discouraged at SE sites: Internet sites come and go, but your answer should last for years! So please elaborate on it a bit further (in the sense that the reader will be able to get the important pieces without consulting the volatile link).

It's just that I hate Adobe Reader and are hoping for alternatives... It's a resource hog and crappy PDF viewer on OS X. Eventually, Apple should incorporate OCGs in their PDFKit, on which basically all other PDF viewers for apple are built.

While evince does work on OS X (needs an X11 server), the OCG stuff unfortunately doesn't :-(

Oh, I just figured that evince is available for OS X via MacPorts. Just trying to install it...

Cool package, indeed. I especially like the non-JavaScript take that would free us from Acrobat/Reader. Are you aware of any non-Adobe PDF reader for OSX that can deal with OCGs?
