I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

comment Komascript style for empty page after page with `\part` title, or how to get page numbers there cleanly
I want a page number even on otherwise empty pages, because for me, a page number does not only serve as an anchor for the same page, but also assists when a reader is looking for a particular page number. When I'm browsing looking for page 16, and pages 14 and 18 are empty without any page numbers, that could make it a little bit more involved to find page 16.

Hm. They look the same colour to me.

comment How to cite data?
Well, in this case those are not written documents at all. But perhaps that doesn't matter.

comment Ignoring an acronym that is only used once
This appears to fail if I use glossary entries that are not acronyms: Package etoolbox Error: Boolean '\ifglo@collocation@usedonlyonce' undefined. where collocation is a glossary entry, but not an acronym.

comment How do I instruct \fullcite to use maxbibnames rather than maxcitenames?
Great! That was more difficult than I had expected.

comment ylabel style when axis y line=right
I see. The documentation, The starred versions (...) only affect the axis lines, without correcting the positions of axis labels, confused me; I thought not affecting the positions of axis labels would mean that the y line would move to the right, but the ylabel would remain on the left; which would be silly (but who knows why someone might want that), but that's not what it does

comment ylabel style when axis y line=right
Aha. I see now that it also appears to have the side effect of adding an arrow tip and changing the tick position.

Hmm, I remember trying that but probably I forgot to remove the aux and toc files. Thanks.

comment What to do to switch to biblatex?
From the manual: For a quick start guide, browse §§ 1.1, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 3.1, 3.3, 3.6, 3.7, 3.11.. That's still almost 90 pages.

comment Is there any opposite of newpage?
Great answer, that must be the reason why we need to run latex/pdflatex 2 or more times as well?

comment Draw a grid for obtaining coordinates to pass to includegraphics' viewport option
Looks like I was missing the abs option (I think it wasn't there in an earlier revision), but that one's pretty essential. Got it now!

comment Draw a grid for obtaining coordinates to pass to includegraphics' viewport option
I find it hard to reproduce it with my local example here. I might be still doing something wrong. Does it make a difference in what format the picture is?

comment Draw a grid for obtaining coordinates to pass to includegraphics' viewport option
Perhaps I did not phrase my question clearly. The coordinates in this figure do not correspond to the coordinates I need to pass to viewport to get my desired subset of the image; for example, suppose I want to include only the right eye. \includegraphics[viewport=39 60 44 64,clip]{tiger} does not give me the right eye, but a different (much smaller) area.

I'm not sure if I'm understood correctly, I will edit the question.

comment Drawing on multiple images inside the same tikzpicture, how to get the right transformation of coordinates?
@PeterGrill The final output is supposed to be an environment where I can draw on either picture using local coordinates scaled so that (0, 0) is the lower left and (1, 1) is the upper right, as works for a single pictures in the linked question.

comment Drawing on multiple images inside the same tikzpicture, how to get the right transformation of coordinates?
Ah, it looks like it works if I additionally change x={(image2.south east)},... to x={(image1.south east)},.... Does that work because the images are equally sized? They are in my present example. I haven't tested with differently sized pictures.

@percusse That solves it partially; it moves the origin appropriately, but (1, 1) does not yet refer to the upper right (it's still stretched).
