comment LyX new macros and instant preview
@newuser You really should not define commands in the middle of your document this way. LyX has no way of knowing you defined them, and cannot use them when generating the preview. Either define all your commands in the document preamble, or use "insert->math->macro" to define new commands using LyX math macros. Look at the "Math" section of LyX help menu for more details.

comment Can I set Vim w/ vim-latexsuite to clean up aux files after compile?
Well, latex-suite already tries to take care of compiling the document multiple times if necessary, so theoretically that should not be a problem. The question is how robust is the algorithm latex-suite uses to decide if additional compiles are necessary. I never had problems with it, but I rarely work with documents that would need more than two compilation cycles.

comment LyX new macros and instant preview
Hm, that's strange, it works for me. Can you give us more details? How exactly do you define \abc. Do you get instant preview if you do not use user defined commands?

comment Put a slash through a word
What exactly do you mean by "lower-left" corner? Should the line start at the baseline, in the lower left corner of the bounding box of the word, or somewhere else?

comment Achieving multicolumn like this
I edited the answer a bit, so some of the vertical space problems disappear, but it is still not ideal. One possible way, when using the multicol package, is to typeset each line as a separate paragraph, with \vfill between them. Then the lines in the shorter column will be equally spaced and spread so that they will span the height of the longer column. I tried to do \\[1\fill] between lines, but that does not seem to work.

comment Ploting a function using mplib in lualatex
That example fails with ! You can only use btex' or verbatimtex' in a file. but if I change it to label (btex Hello World etex, (0,0));, it will fail with LuaTeX error ...share/texmf-texlive/tex/luatex/luamplib/luamplib.lua:74: invalid option '%C' to 'format' just like the original example.
