comment Beamer image not centered
@DavidCarlisle: That resulted in a right margin, which was too wide. Using [width=1\textwidth] solved this for many images. Others were solved by placing them in a centering environment and specifying the height.

comment Beamer image not centered
I don't insist on using scale. I just thought it was the best way. I tried a few different scale sizes and a left margin was still present in all cases.

comment Beamer image not centered
@ThorstenDonig: The image is appearing on the page with space all around it. It's just that the space on the left is too large so it's not centered.

comment Transparent image background in beamer
This is leaving a small white margin on the left and top of the page. Ideas?

Thanks. I know you were first, but I'm going to accept egreg's answer.

comment Box or sidebar for additional text
Thanks. The layout I wanted integrates the sidebar with the text though, rather than placing it in a wide empty margin. The body text would have to be a single column next to the box.

comment Full reference inline in text
Is it possible not to include the \bibentry entries in the main bibliography (if they are not cited anywhere else)?

comment Quality of R plots in LaTeX
My understanding was that using the scale function of \includegraphics may result in lower quality images? Any scaling should be done outside of LaTeX. Hence my question about how to optimize the quality of an R image in LaTeX. I would have preferred that the question be moved to another site, rather than down-voted.

comment Quality of R plots in LaTeX
My question was actually related to visualizing that output in LaTeX and my concern that doing so was reducing the quality of the image.

Similar to tex.stackexchange.com/questions/44394/… which uses bibtex.

comment Place floats on a separate page before the referring text
@Mico: Good point -- thanks. Yes, floats may appear on the page where they are mentioned if possible. What I want to avoid is a float appearing two or three pages away. Some portions of text refer to a few floats, so there is physically not enough space for them all to appear near to the text. Hence, placing them before the text on their own page, which will then be bound on the left, facing the text page.

comment Local footnotes with letters in longtable
Please explain why you think this will confuse the reader? My thinking is that footnotes in a table should be local. Reading a table where the first footnote is "e" would make it seem that the table should also contain footnotes "a" to "d". My intention is to separate footnotes in the textual part of the document, with those of a stand-alone entity like a table.

comment PNG DPI and image size
Thanks for the explanation. Changing the image to 150 DPI increased the size of the image in the PDF. Edit: I'll try the additional suggestion you just made in your updated comment too.

comment Font style in mdframed
Yes. Post that as an answer :) \emph didn't work (obviously) and I didn't know about \itshape.

comment Name of default “sffamily” font
Indeed, this yields \long macro:->cmss. Thanks.

comment Position text next to rectangle in TikZ
Is it possible that the size of the rectangle I specify be exact/fixed/absolute, rather than "minimum"? If the text in {} is too long, the rectangle is enlarged. I need all the rectangles to be exact/fixed/absolute sizes, to scale, so I don't want them to ever grow in size. I'd rather see the text overflow and then change the text to something shorter.

comment Position text next to rectangle in TikZ
I've added a note to my question with an example illustrating what I mean about the positioning.
