comment Maintaining two similar versions without duplication
@ErelSegalHalevi: In the respective master, just add the two branches as well (Documents -> Settings -> Branches), but just Activate only the one you want to include.

comment How can I highlight some lines from source code?
@AnCongTran: That is a bit more than a small addition and this question is specifically about highlighting. To keep topics concise, please ask a new question (including an MWE, and, maybe, a link to this answer.

comment Recommended workflow for fixing several nasty frames in beamer?
For exactly this purpose I use the comment package to comment out parts I do not want to compile. See also tex.stackexchange.com/questions/17816/…

comment LyX, How to use more than the thirteen Roman fonts listed under Document Settings Fonts?
@user12711: Right, the recommended way to use URW Garamond is via the mathdesign or the garamondx package (see answer).

comment A command to define other commands with arguments
@Stirling: It's very related, so for the sake of conciseness I suggest to edit your question accordingly. When extending the question, you should probably also untick the accept checkmark until your question has been answered completely. (To prevent frequent changes of the accepted answer, we usually wait for a few days before accepting. This also increases your chance of getting more alternatives and sometimes the really neat one just shows up late.)

comment TikZ picture wrecks page on Adobe Reader
@ThomasF.Sturm: A beautiful manual, indeed! One thing that caught my eye is the footnote on p. 192: "The reason is that I am to dumb to catch the current color at the split point. If you know the trick, let me know." Well, I don't know it either, but why don't you just ask for it here?

comment TikZ picture wrecks page on Adobe Reader
@ThomasF.Sturm: Yep, there is a price to pay – but if people have to get that thesis out of this #@$#& picky printer tonight, they usually don't mind it :-) However, an effective growth by factor 40 is pretty extreme, I never experienced that. Is your PDF basically a PDF shading test case?

comment How to highlight table rows by colors in Beamer
Welcome to tex.se! I appreciate the effort you have put into your answer, however, I don't see yet how it addresses the OPs question. AFAIU, the question was about row-wise highlighting on subsequent slides using beamer overlays (e.g., slide 1: all rows are black, slide 2: row 1 is red, slide 3: row 2 is red, ...).

Well carried out hacking... which underlines the fact that the move to biblatex might eventually be the way to go.

comment Are there good books retracing the history of (La)TeX?
I am not aware of any book in this respect and I am not sure if there is enough "in it" to make it a book. To me, this sounds more like a good topic for a thesis in the humanities. So you might want want to try looking for BA/MA theses in this respect.

comment White-colored text and black background using the article class
Excuse be, but could you please give some justification for the "without use of extra package"? Why exactly do you dismiss existing solutions in existing packages? I mean, the whole point of LaTeX packages is modularity and composability for reuse and separation of concerns. So why instead you want reinventing the wheel?

@Kurt Or just group it, so that the redefinition remains local.

comment LaTeX - a single code listing over multiple pages
@Cv4: To my understanding, this does not solve the OP's question. The point is the breaking across page boundaries.

I just guess @MartinScharrer is kind of busy these days. I am pretty sure he will provide a definite answer, eventually.

comment Why does \numexpr integer division round rather than truncate?
Oh... I wasn't aware of the fact that it does round. Quite counterintuitive – and good to know.

comment Spotcolor bleeds into the surrounding
Cool! I always had considered it more than ridiculus that I could create professional color-print publications with LaTeX and TiKZ. You have done the community a big favor!
