comment Mac OS Yosemite made TeXShop previews unreadably blurred
I had the same problem. The command (from the terminal) "defaults write TeXShop FixPreviewBlur YES" also worked for me.

comment Jumping to previous position in TeXshop
That's a nifty method, thanks. Still looking for an answer though. I've found macros eg. at tug.org/pipermail/macostex-archives/2011-May/046997.html but I haven't been able to get them working.

comment How can I convert TikZ to SVG on a Mac?
@JimboBimbo Thanks, but seems a bit of a work-around. If the fonts are installed on my system, it should just be able to use them. I shoulnd't have to convert them to curves.

Those instructions are for Linux. I installed the fonts on Mac from <sourceforge.net/projects/cm-unicode/files/>;, but when I open a pdf with LaTeX text/math file in Inkscape it doesn't use the font.

Ok thanks, how can I do that? Specifically, for Computer Modern Roman and the math fonts?

Ok, but this mangles up the text, and math.

comment How to draw just the arrow tip in TikZ
I wanted a "fixed up" version of Andrew Stacey's answer to the question "How to draw an arrow in the middle of a line"? The most elegant way to do this is now clear: you simply create a macro \myarrow which draws your favourite arrow tip. Then you can "drop" arrow heads very conveniently along curved paths, as follows: \draw (0,0) to[out=right, in=down] node {\myarrow} (1,1);. This way of doing it means you can drop multiple arrow heads along the path no hassle.

Oh, I see that can't be done in normal code, it can only live inside the decoration environment.
