comment Uncover a multiline equation with beamer
@Hendrik: Actually, my original statement is correct: \xcancel doesn't add any extra space! It's a little odd that it removes some, which is what your \vphantom corrects for. This is actually quite a complicated question as there are several distinct issues: uncovering mathematics, ensuring that nothing jumps, and making a command overlay-aware.

comment Uncover a multiline equation with beamer
@Hendrik: Well, \alt is what you want in this case since you want the cancellation replaced by the under text. Also, it's acting in two different ways: the \onlys in the question are outside the mathematics but the \alt is inside. I guess it's pure luck (or good design) that the \xcancel doesn't seem to add any extra space so the equation doesn't jump about on the page, otherwise something more complicated would be needed (not knowing of the cancel package, I use TikZ to draw big lines across the page for this sort of thing).

comment Converting LaTeX into Unicode for email
@coarsemoduli: Absolutely correct - thanks for the bug report. Just shows how often I use that for things like \nabla! (I use it mainly for accented characters) (Fixed now)

Blast, I've already voted for this before your edit. I think that the floating point version is fantastic.

... and here's half a vote. Oh, wait, they don't come in half steps yet so you'll have to have a whole one. (Incidentally, why isn't your name in the list of moderator candidates?)

comment Lineno - numbering abstract's lines.
@lockstep: no need to fix that! By the way, I've gone for a slightly deeper hack, but I think that yours is the simplest way and given that line numbering surely isn't going to be in the final version (is it?) of whatever document, then the simplest hack is probably the best.

Not contrary to me at all! I was simply assuming that amsart was the sine qua non in this case.

comment makeindex page entries are all underlined
I'm still unclear as to what I'm meant to be seeing. I've just voted up your question. If someone else does so as well then you'll have enough reputation to post a screenshot of the relevant page. I think that that would help a great deal.

I deleted the other post so that everyone can concentrate on this one. This one had the most recent modification time so I judged it the best to keep.

comment How can I create a pdf document exactly as big as my tikz picture?
@daroczig: Thanks for adding the information. It is possible that we are talking about different programs. When I search for a homepage for pdfcrop then I get pdfcrop.sourceforge.net which is not the program that I was talking about. I'm talking about the program pdfcrop by Heiko Oberdiek which comes with TeXLive. I don't understand the characterisation of this solution as "tricky"; if someone is a commandline junkie (like me) then it could be a lot simpler than an inbuilt solution. But then I'm not offering this as THE solution, just a solution.
