Idea borrowed from Hendrik Vogt:


[Welcome to TeX.SE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1436).


It would be helpful if you composed a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) including `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages that sets up the problem.

While solving problems can be fun, setting them up is not. Then, those trying to help can simply cut and paste your MWE and get started on solving the problem.


It is always best to compose a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) that illustrates the problem including the `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages so that those trying to help don't have to recreate it.

This will also serve as a test case and ensure that the solution actually works for you.

That way those trying to help can focus on the solution as opposed to setting up the problem test case.


While code snippets are useful in explanations, it is always best to compose a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) that illustrates the problem including the `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages so that those trying to help don't have to recreate it.

This is especially important for `tikz` as there are numerous libraries.

In this case it will actually help to ensure that the solution actually solves your specific problem.

Personally, I have often solved my own problems in the process of reducing the amount of code actually required to reproduce the problem.


A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, then they're marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (`{}`).

I took the liberty to format your post a little. See [this link for more details on available formatting](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/editing-help).


Saying it "does not work" does not provide any useful information with which anyone can provide you with any help. I'd suggest you post a new question and include a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) including `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages that sets up the problem. If your case does not even compile, then ensure that it compiles if that one line is commented. While solving problems can be fun, setting them up is not. Then, those trying to help can simply cut and paste your MWE and get started on solving the problem.


If the solution worked for you please see [How do you accept an answer?](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1852/how-do-you-accept-an-answer) and perhaps [How does accepting an answer work?](http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/5234/how-does-accepting-an-answer-work).

comment I'm trying to redefine the plain pagestyle as empty
If you set the pagestyle to plain \pagestyle{plain} you should then get the desired result.

comment Why is \parskip zero inside a minipage?
@egreg: But there must be a good reason why that was done that way? Any downside of restoring \parskip inside all minipages?

comment Is there a more correct way to show explicit exponential operators?
I am not sure that that is such a good idea since exponentiation is not associative: 2^(3^2) is not the same as (2^3)^2). So what exactly does 2^3^2 mean? This is probably the reason why TeX complains about double super scripts.

comment What environment to use in writing formal deductions?
Perhaps a tabular environment using a a p{} column type, and a custom counter for the first column?

comment Write a column selectively to the appropriate row using pgfplotstable?
Is the namespgf.csv file considered to be complete? i.e., is it guaranteed that every entry in markspgf.csv exists in namespgf.csv. Also, is there a typo in the markspgf.csv file created by filecontents as it does not match the description given earlier?

comment Environment to underline/strikeout for comparing versions
Admittedly I have not used the specific packages mentioned here, but I don't think it should be necessary to manually remove the changes. It should be possible to just redefine the environments to no longer show/highlight the deleted/marked up text. @Bristol: Once you have settled on a working solution, you might want to consider asking a separate question on how to automate this process if desired.

Related Question: Changbars to indicate location of conditional text. Should be able to modify this solution to work with multiple authors.

comment Getting \bm to pass thru siunitx macros
@DavidCarlisle: Wow!! With just the siunitx package and the document consisting only of \ang{180} I get a 5.4MB file with \tracingall. ...Well, if have just the package included and an completely empty document I still get a 4.7MB file!! How can you possibly debug with \tracingall?

comment How to draw circle, square, and triangle marks in TikZ picture?
You can add a square with \filldraw (10,0) rectangle ++(3pt,3pt);. Adding [yshift=-1.5pt] will center it vertically as the circle is.
