comment Nicely recover embedded images
@JohnKormylo, thanks for the ideas. But as I understand, PDF files can be a mixture of text and binary. I've looked at many of them with text editors before. I'm seeking an automated way here -- there are quite a few options if you don't need to do it in a time efficient manner. I'd also like to avoid expensive programs like Acrobat.

comment Add offset to line number (in error message) when using input files
Problem is now solved. It turns out there never was any problem: latex subtracts the numbers automatically, the way that I wanted! I just didn't notice.

I think that option is on by default (I use pdflatex), and turning it on makes no difference.

comment Page numbers in beamer are sometimes covered up — how to always display?
Ahh, such wisdom. I tried this and found the problem: on the bad frames that were hiding the page number, the issue was that I had copied them from an old presentation which occasionally started frames with \begin{frame}[plain] and this, obviously, prevents the page number from showing. So answer solved! thanks
