comment Comparing the output of two PDFs
@Sveinung Most certainly yes :) (It should also be possible to compile from source but a quick test ran into several problems. On the other hand it doesn't really matter, as long as nobody is developing it further anyway. So I will not investigate this any further for now.)

comment Comparing the output of two PDFs
That's unfortunately correct: Qtrac not only changed the licensing of the newer versions, they also removed the older ones -- which are still perfectly useable; the old page is archived here: qtrac.eu/diffpdf-foss.html I haven't tried the new commercial versions either and don't intend to with that price tag and license. Your diffpdf-link is indeed to the old version, unfortunately without a Mac-binary. But you can get the old Mac-binary from other places, e.g. cnet de.download.cnet.com/DiffPDF/3000-18497_4-75745980.htm

comment LaTeX not hyphenating with current preamble
@Johan To track down issues like this, try to reduce your code step by step while recompiling to see if the problem persists. Cf here meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228/…

@egreg Yes, you obviously right! Sorry that was too quick. \centering has to be limited anyway.

comment How can I use Times New Roman in size 11.5?
If it is the main text font you want to set to 11.5pt you are out of luck with the standard classes. But komascript-classes "offer the feature of selection of any desired size for the main document font", cf § 4.8 of the English manual.

comment Print acronymos
yes, sure, just move the acronym-environment to where you want it. I've also added the code for listoffigures, even though I'd personally put it in the TOC instead.

The code I posted compiles here just fine -- what precisely doesn't work for you?

comment Print acronymos
no, it doesn't; that's the point of using \acrodef and not the standard \begin{acronym} ;) see below for how to get a list anyway

You should only use \acrodef if you don't want a list. \printacronym is not a command of the package, if you take it out, it works.

comment Apply a macro to every word
I wouldn't mind running an extra script, as long as I don't have to find all problematic words by hand. Such a script is still not trivial for non-programmers to write, so maybe a compromise would be to offer a ready-made script as part of the reledmac-distribution? Possibly with the option to let reledmac trigger it in a similar manner as e.g. imakeidx does for the index-processing? But any automatisation of this problem would be very nice!

comment Apply a macro to every word
Just wondering whether preprocessing the source could be an alternative …? The script would only have to check for duplicate words that are max. 80 or so characters apart, so I'd imagine it wouldn't take too long to run.

comment Can I typeset a proof tree in exercise 2.4.3(c) from mathematical logic by ian chiswell and wilfrid hodges(2007) with tex?
It is possible but a bit advanced. If you don't know any LaTeX yet, it is definitely not worth learning it, just for the sake of one tree. But if you are planning to work extensively in this or similar fields, it's probably a really good idea to get going with a good LaTeX-introduction and get back to trees after a while.

comment Can I typeset a proof tree in exercise 2.4.3(c) from mathematical logic by ian chiswell and wilfrid hodges(2007) with tex?
by the looks of the picture, the book actually is typeset with TeX. People here are very helpful, but even more so when they get the impression that you've already put some effort in solving the problem yourselv, e.g. by showing your (unsuccessful) attempts.

Is there a way to get this to work for font names with spaces?
