comment Are \( and \) preferable to dollar signs for math mode?
@Amar $ ... $ is officially-supported LaTeX2e syntax and I do not see that changing. However, we will implement this in a different way to the present set up, not leaving $ as the primitive 'switch to math mode' token. On $$ ... $$, I don't see the advantage over \[ ... \] but that is to be determined.

comment How to typeset numbers in scientific notation without using a dedicated package such as siunitx?
@Amar See update: it's a bit too complex for a comment. (It's also a general trick: might make a good generic question if we don't already have it.)

comment Passing complicated argument patterns to a new command
@ChristianHupfer In your earlier comment you say 'D is the delimited argument version (there is also d) which allows for basically any token (but not [] or {}, as far as I know).' I was just pointing out that d[] or D[] is entirely valid and is the way that o/O is actually implemented.

comment Problem with examdesign and twocolumn in Debian 8
@F.Tusell What's really needed is a list of the files involved: it's not 'TeX Live' that causes such issues but particularly package changes. Adding \listfiles to the input will give a file list in the .log file: versions of this for the two set ups would be ideal.

comment Passing complicated argument patterns to a new command
@ChristianHupfer d works for (almost) any pair of token bar {}. In particular, o is just a shortcut for d[]!

comment Difference between cfr-lm and lm package
Both answers here are good but I hope the OP accepts this one (can't do much better than the package author answering) :-)

@Amar No, I would never redefine \number! I'll add some comments in a bit.

comment Perl, Python, Lua or just Latex/Xetex
@George I think you need to be clear if you want to learn TeX (typesetting with minimal structural support) or LaTeX (a more structured approach built on top of TeX). I don't see that using another language is going to help you here: you'd still need to output the appropriate (La)TeX for typesetting, so still need to know the 'TeX part'!

comment How to change the styles (.sty) path in Lyx?
What TeX system is on your path (for example, the result of command -v pdflatex at the Terminal)? It looks like you have BasicTeX installed inside /usr/local, so I'm wondering why you want to point to /opt/local/share.
