comment Which TeX programs produce dvi output?
@Herbert Well, I'd disagree that it's not missing. Since .xdv is an intermediate format, I'd like to see more converters from .xdv to other final formats, like .pdf or .ps. I'd facilitate automation of such documents. Also, since PDF is essentially made off the .xdv, it gets rendered slightly faster, and is therefore more suited for previewing.

The option to make xetex output XDV is -no-pdf, not -nopdf. That being said, are there any XDV viewers available, or backends to generate PDF, GS, etc.?

I use xelatex, does it work equally well with it?

arlatex is OK-ish, but the fact that it refuses to recreate files, that are anywhere where latex can find them is a bit meh. Gotta check if it works with xelatex.

@PredragPunosevac Actually, TeX doesn't really facilitate splitting things up like that. I tend to put chapters of longer works into individual files and then \input-ing them from another file, that compiles the whole document. It works somewhat well. I'd much rather have preprocessor capabilities like with C language files.

@sarnold Because I usually use the console for debugging. I simply scroll up and use the text search of my terminal emulator. It is not super optimal, but usually, I use Makefiles only, when the document is practically finished. I use the xelatex command manually when working with the individual .tex files.

comment Weird behavior when using small caps and slanted fonts with fontspec in XeLaTeX
While this solution works partially, I lose the option to make slanted small caps: {\scshape \slshape blah} or {\scshape \itshape blah} or variants with \scshape as second argument don't work anymore.

comment Weird behavior when using small caps and slanted fonts with fontspec in XeLaTeX
Erm, that's not what I wanted. I want upright small caps. Small caps should only be slanted if used with \slshape. You have {\scshape Def} and the result is slanted as well, which in my case is incorrect.

Well, at least a link to the original would be nice, I really don't know how to do that!
