comment Beamer-Generated slides to PPT?
When I open a PDF with LibreOffice, it gets me into LibreOffice Draw which does not let me save as PPT.

comment Detexify-like service where I can paste a symbol
It doesn't seem to work terribly well: for example, is U+27E8 MATHEMATICAL LEFT ANGLE BRACKET, but the Unicode-Latex converter does not find it as either < or \langle.

@UlrikeFischer I have. Apparently, it had already been reported, see answer below.

comment Tex Live 2015, KOMA-script pagesize=automedia yields Undefined Control Sequence
I probably don't need the option, I just copied over my standard set of options from before. How would I make a bug report — just e-mailing the maintainers?

comment Where does the name “TeX” come from?
Then it should be ΤΕΧ [in Greek] or perhaps ΤεΧ rather than TeX ;-)

comment How do I increase spacing between unit components in pgfplots?
Works — but does not address the question why the space is eaten when I'm using siunitx inside pgfplots, but the space appears when I use siunitx directly.

comment Why are my marks not drawn?
I suppose compat=1.8 does not extend to things that should not have worked in the first place, but accidentally did due to bugs...

comment Why are my marks not drawn?
Strange. I copied over code from my thesis (pgfplots version 1.8) and I certainly have the markers there in my thesis. Ah well, I got it to work now :)

comment Why are my marks not drawn?
Aah. Did this perhaps accidentally work in older pgfplots versions?

comment Is there a ditto symbol?
I'm using it in a table where I'm starved for space and my entries are "primary, raw", "primary, smoothed", "secondary, raw", "secondary, smoothed". I don't have space to fit primary/secondary and smoothed/raw in its own column, nor to write it out in full, so I opt for "primary, raw", "---, smoothed", "secondary, raw", "secondary, ---", which saves a centimetre or two.

comment mhchem and beamer: use of `\ce` in title gives `Undefined control sequence.`
I will probably do that. Indeed, I have a working example but it's not very minimal...

Hmm. Although it solves the problem posted in the question, it has side-effects for the layout of the poster I'm trying to make.

@MomoTh You should try to figure out exactly what the problem is and then post it as a new question.

comment How do I get numbered entries in a beamer bibliography
When using biblatex+biber, karlkoellers answer results in all items labelled [0], but @GonzaloMedina's answer works correctly.

I attempted a similar technique when forced to deliver a Microsoft Word®-document, but I did not succeed.
