A Canadian geek, finishing off a chemistry degree. I typically hang around TeX.SX as I like the community and learn things by reading the questions. I'm also active on RPG.SX and History.SX.

@doncherry I used to be a big fan of PDFCreator, but the last few times I've tried to download it, it has gotten dinged as having adware in it.

comment LaTeX Editors/IDEs
I use notepad++ for my bib files, as it is more bare bones and easier to get what I want done. Also if I don't use emacs a lot it is hard to flip into its shortcuts from windows programs, though I admit it is better for what I want to do.

Can a vim user verify if this works for me? I have no idea how to use vim, being an emacs person.

It seems the windows version of emacs doesn't like this; I can't middle click on the search line. Not sure why...

comment Does cfr-lm have any other side-effects besides changing to old style numbers?
Yes; it makes your document about 500x more awesome by using old style numbers.
