comment Construction of a Notation Page in Memoir Document Class:
Or why not just type up a table and use the standard cross-references to point to where each symbol is introduced?

comment Error with TextMate 2, PATH, --shell-escape and gnuplot in 10.8.2
@Manuel, PATH is an environment variable that lists locations to look for programs. When you check the checkbox in TM, it tells TM to use a different setting for this variable than the default. gnuplot is installed in a directory that is not in the default list of directories, so TM (and any program that TM runs) can't find gnuplot unless you change the value of PATH yourself. The PATH that TM sees is not the same PATH that you see when you run commands in Terminal.

@Manuel you want to use the "Execute Line" action in the Shell Script bundle, not the "Typeset & View" command from the LaTeX bundle. Ctrl-R, not Cmd-R. This is like telling TextMate to run a line in a terminal that TextMate launches for itself.

comment What are underfull hboxes and vboxes and how can I get rid of them?
Using \setlength{\parskip}{...} is great if you want extra space between every paragraph. If you want some extra space to appear in one spot but not all the time, you can also use \vspace{...}.

comment Using the charter font, F followed by a full stop looks like an E. What should I do?
@Vegard It looks to me that the only reason the text is broken differently in your example is that there is now slightly more space between the F and . I do not think the space between these two characters has much stretch, because you can try changing it to to extra space CNF., for example, and the kerning problem remains, unless you switch the package load order.

If you switch the two lines \usepackage{charter} and \usepackage[charter]{mathdesign}, the problem goes away. Not sure why.

@Vegard yes, I can confirm the problem now as well.

Maybe you somehow have an old version of the charter fonts? I see some notes about improving the kerning at CTAN.

I'm seeing the same thing as @CountZero as well. Mac OS 10.7, MacTeX 2011 and pdflatex.

If you're sure you won't ever want to change the font, or that you won't ever want to copy and paste F\,. into another file...

comment Automatically change the text width for all table environments using memoir
Thanks! I guess it was \table I was confused about in the end.
