My first contact with LaTeX was in 1998. I’m currently working on my PhD in Theoretical Computer Science.

comment How to visualize the underfull box in final output PDF files
@PaulGessler Thanks a lot! The fix was too simple for me to see it.

comment How to change the mathematical symbol class of a unicode math symbol?
The second solution is what I am looking for. I can just write f⚬g and get the correct spacing. No command sequences needed.

@cfr I haven’t checked, but isn’t the package for the PostScript version of the font only?

@JLDiaz With LuaTeX 0.76 from TeXLive 2013 I get: LuaTeX error DetectUnderfull.lua:8: You cannot set field cmd in a node of type whatsit. Does it still work for you?

comment automatic size adjustment for nested parentheses
@Mohan: It is the wonderful work of Johannes Küster, who created Minion Math as a companion to Robert Slimbach’s Minion.

@Joseph Yes, that is what I did.

comment biblatex: No pagebreak in bibliography entry
@Matthias True. As I wrote, it is a kludge. If you do it at the very end before publishing/printing you only have to do it once.

comment multirow with word wrapped columns in longtable
Are the entries in column 1 and 2 dependent or independent? That is, does an entry in column 1 summarize what is written in the three rows it spans or does it give a category for the three rows it spans? Is it always three or does it vary? If it varies is there are rule how it varies or perhaps an external file that contains the data?

comment clash between mathtools and unicode-math
\tracinglostchars has no effect, probably due to this bug

I have the same version here. Is there something like loglevel=debug that makes the log more verbose?

comment clash between mathtools and unicode-math
I’d like to know where the “missing character” log entries are from? If I look into LuaTeX’s Transcript written on test.log. I cannot find them there. If I remove \coloneq and the other macros from the MWE and just use \[:=:=\] I still get the same errors. As I’m only working on the preamble and not on a true document Latin Modern Math was just an unfortunated random pick it seems. From the few available OpenMath OpenType Fonts Neo Euler seems to be the only one to have a non-symmetrical :=.

comment Formatting a LaTeX article to look really good
@Josh The pdf of the nature article you are referring to, hides behind a paywall. Only people surfing from inside an university network are probably able to see it.

comment Why is pdflatex not recognizing my > symbol?
TeX doesn’t detect maths automatically. The author requests mathmode by writing \( math \) or \[ math \] when using LaTeX and $ math $ or $$ math $$ when using plain TeX.

comment How to use WEAVE and TANGLE
With windows you never know if it is a problem with access rights. Does the problem persist if you run the command from a “shell” with admin rights?

Then the lower limit is centered incorrectly.

comment Improving typesetting of sums with long limits
If the middle sum would stand on its own \smashoperator would do the job. But here the = should not move under the upper limit only the s. How do I move the s easily? What commands are there to achieve this?

comment texify or latexmk?
@Per I think the MiKTeX Installer asks for it. Afterwards it is in the general tab of the Settings tool under the Maintenance entry in the start menu.

As you use MiKTeX on Windows, have you looked at texify?

comment How do I put “complex” multiline things as 1 cell in a table?
I fear that is not enough information to give a viable answer. You have a single column document? Do the multiline math environments span over the whole column horizontally? Why do you hope that placing them in a table saves space?

comment How do I get rid of this line spacing after multicols?
@Mehrdad I am afraid I don't know what you mean by “group by row”. align environments allow math to be typeset in a grid like fashion. And yes if you remove one from the middle, it is troublesome to move the ones below up. But that is taken care of by a good editor with a column edit mode, as well as alinging the source so it can be cut and pasted easily.
