I am a mathematician by profession and quite a long-time (since around 1995 – as of now [2014], this means more than half of my life) TeX user by hobby.

I started with plain TeX, and much later (in the early 2000s) moved to LaTeX; I still use plain TeX occasionally (and when writing LaTeX classes/packages). Quite recently I also started to use ConTeXt.

I am a heavy Emacs user, though still a newbie – I started in 2001.

I have a blog about (among others) TeX and friends, located at http://mbork.pl/Content_AND_Presentation.

comment Why does LaTeX macro spells \LaTeX{} (which requires Shift) and not \latex{}?
@ajeh: you don't get LaTeX in the resulting pdf, you get the correct logo. And, as others said, if you use it often, you may define your own macro or configure your editor to capitalize \LaTeX correctly.

What do you mean by "duplicated"? (I didn't test the solutions there.)

Ha, I found out that my question is mostly duplicate of tex.stackexchange.com/q/41140/5626 .

comment How do I prepare an index of symbols with memoir?
Thanks! I thought about it, too, but some time after posting the question. It might work, and if there's no package doing this, I'll probably end up writing one. ;)

comment Is there a package (like showlabels) for amsrefs?
I'll try, though that might be tough - my example is a not-so-small document with a custom class...

Well, my fault - I mixed the names of showlabels and showkeys... Thanks!

Indeed, there were some spacing changes. Thanks anyway!

comment Is it possible to define a command taking an optional star and working in a subscript?
One question: why define \s@dH?

This. Is. Pure. Awesome. (Though an extremely dirty trick.) The only reason I didn't accept this (yet?) is that I want to wait for more answers (though it seems unlikely that they'll come...) May I submit this to the "TeX beauties and oddities" session for the next BachoTeX conference (with due credit, of course?)

Agreed (I more or less stated it in the question anyway), but my curiosity is still unsatisfied...

Better yet: \usepackage{etoolbox}\appto{\proof}{\unskip}

No, better change it as you've written!

comment A problem with `amsthm` and positive `\parskip`
BTW, I'm looking now at the definition of the proof environment, and I'm wondering why that skip appears... If I had more time (and my TeXbook copy at home;)), I could investigate this. Maybe tomorrow...

Great, thanks! So it was proof which introduced the unnecessary skip. Stupid me, I should have tried something like this...

comment A problem with `amsthm` and positive `\parskip`
Not at all, unfortunately. This is supposed to be coded in a class released in the wild, for people to use. No manual hacks like this allowed...

I also clarified the problem (though the code shows what I mean anyway, I hope;)...)

@DavidCarlisle: showlabels seems to know nothing about amsrefs.

I know, I know, people!!! One comment is enough! It's 22:30 here, I have a deadline, and I forgot about a MWE... ;-)

comment A problem with vertical positioning of `multicols`
Thanks a lot for the explanation! At least I know that I'll have to fix this manually (that's what I did anyway). And I hope that the LaTeX3 output routine will handle such things...;)

comment A problem with vertical positioning of `multicols`
Thanks, but it doesn't work here... I changed [2-3] to [2-10] and the pages are still "ragged".
