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.

comment Text color with hyperref package
@Gilson We are trying to diagnose a problem with one package. We want to eliminate the possibility another package is causing the problem. See: meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/3300/…

comment Text color with hyperref package
@Gilson That is far from a MWE. Look at all the packages in there. You want to use as few packages as possible to reproduce the problem, ideally just the one. Cut them out a few at a time and see if the problem goes away.

Yeah, there isn't much we can do until we have a full MWE that we can print ourselves and compare.

comment Remove ugly borders around clickable cross-references and hyperlinks
@Gilson I've not had that problem, at least, not that I've noticed. Could you make a new question with a MWE so I can test it out? Tag me in the comment please.

comment Save fillable forms
@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.

comment Chemistry molecular structure drawing programs
Might it not be easier to figure out the format that ChemDraw outputs to when you select Postscript or SVG and then reparse that, rather then the binary file?

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...
