This is a well overdue post. I know that some readers have been waiting for this. I apologize for the delay. I hope you'll find this talk useful.

Flashget Script Error/Flashget Recommends bar

In Flashget, go to:

View/Recommendation

and uncheck it.

Obviously, the ads displayed by flashget are generating an internet explorer script error. I never liked that recommend bar anyway.

hyperref and pdfdraftcopy

There seems to be a problem when these two packages are used together. Try adding the following to your preamble – it worked well on my end

\makeatletter
    \def\@DRAFTdimen{% copied from pdfdraftcopy.sty 
    \setlength\LLY{\paperheight} 
    \addtolength\LLY{-\textheight} 
    \addtolength\LLY{-\headheight} 
    \addtolength\LLY{-\headsep} 
    \addtolength\LLY{-1in} 
    \addtolength\LLY{-3pt} 
    \setlength\LLX{1in} 
    \ifodd\value{page}% was \thepage 
    \addtolength\LLX{\oddsidemargin}\else 
    \addtolength\LLX{\evensidemargin}\fi 
    \setlength\URX{\textwidth} 
    \setlength\URY{\textheight}
}
\makeatother

Voila!

Make Nomenclature in WinEdt

First, you need to download this file

http://www.winedt.org/Macros/LaTeX/MakeNomencl.php

Save it in the “Exec/MiKTeX” folder under your WinEdt path, e.g.

C:\Program Files\Winedt Team\WinEdt\Exec\MiKTeX

in WinEdt, do the following

  1. Right click on the Menu bar
  2. Select “Menu Steup”
  3. Double click on any of the menus where you would like your make nomenclature command to go (Accessories would be a good candidate)
  4. On your upper left, choose Insert->Macro
  5. Name the new command (Make Nomenclature)
  6. Under Macro, type the following: Exe('%b\Exec\MiKTeX\MakeNomencl.edt');

Voila!
