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.

comment Why do people still use Postscript?
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).

comment Beamer: including items only some slides using a relative syntax
Just write \item<+-.(3)> my item. The topic is intensely covered by the great answer of Joseph to Relative overlay specifications in beamer, which appears to be a duplicate of this question. Please take a look at it, if you agree we could close this question.

comment PDFs want to scale down
Intuitively, I would expect that at least one of the boxes should not start at '0.00 0.00', because of the margin.

comment PDFs want to scale down
Nice investigations, but behind all that I kind of lost the point of your answer. What exactly are these boxes and what does the output of pdfinfo tell us? Why do you compare to a PDF from TextEdit? Does it not show the weird behavior in AR?

No. LyX should not be considered as an IDE for LaTeX

comment website for easy creating biblatex code?
Nice, but like so many of these services it "kills" accented characters (e.g. ö becomes o, which is quite a difference). Hence, one has to manually validate each and every entry!

comment How can I automatically replace subscripts and highlight GoTo labels?
@Jubobs: Well, I certainly would prefer you learning Lua and extending listings for Lua-based lexers.

comment Is there a good reason for lstlistings code to look so ugly by default?
Thanks, almost perfect :-) I would just add the "official solution", as suggested by @marczellm, somewhere below the joke, so that users just looking for a simple fix to the problem can find it.
