comment suppress output <use image.png> [n] for \includegraphics{image.png} via pdflatex
When including a PDF image, the quiet option removes some of the output, but not all. The log still contains [pagenumber <file.pdf>]. I had a look at the code for graphicx.sty and pdftex.def, but didn't see where that output came from.

comment How to make a row in a table shorter?
Note that this will cause artifacts in some viewers (evince), and if the "short" row is the last, the vertical lines continue below the table (i.e. they are drawn the same height, it's just the next row that is moved up and covers them).

revised LaTeX — specify font point size?
Merged in important comment by @frabjous, as the original answer author seems to not be on the site anymore (username not linked) and is unlikely to amend his answer.

comment How do I perform an expandable string comparison?
@touhami the IfStrEq command is not expandable. From the xstring docs: "The macros of this package are not purely expandable". I tried it and it produces the same problem as ifthenelse.

comment copying a code to latex without loosing the format
What "code" exactly do you have? Is it some source code that you want to show as a listing (use verbatim then)? Could you copy-paste a few lines here as an example?

comment Two chapters on same page in memoir, with twocolumn
@ChristianHupfer Thanks. The goal was to keep the memoir's features and typographical details, but save some paper when printing drafts. I ended up reproducing the A4 \textwidth and \textheight on an A5 page using the geometry package, and put the pages side-by-side with pdfnup. I'm still curious about the details of why the error occurs only with twocolumn, and why memoir uses floats to display chapter titles :) .

comment Two chapters on same page in memoir, with twocolumn
@ChristianHupfer The problem is that there aren't any floats here. I suspect the chapter title is inserted as a kind of float, probably due to an internal hack to position it the right way. The \let\clearpage\relax solution (from the linked answer) does work with a single-column document, but doesn't with a twocolumn one.

revised Multiple PDFs with page group included in a single page warning
ghostscript doesn't like having the output file the same as the input file, giving a blank PDF.
