Is 4.0mu plus 2.0mu minus 4.0mu equal to just 2.0mu?
 
1:02 AM
@Tom No...
It's 4mu when no stretch or shrink is applied/necessary. It can be shrunk down to 0mu (4mu minus 4mu) or stretch out to 6mu (4mu plus 2mu), depending on what is optimal according to TeX's paragraph algorithm.

Nice dataset. Thank you for sharing. Can I ask why? — percusse 6 mins ago

@Manuel I've raised the xparse business with the team (again) (@DavidCarlisle will have seen the mail)
 
9:11 AM
@DavidCarlisle I see we are in agreement
 
@JosephWright of course:-)
pot of gold?
 
10:04 AM
@Johannes_B :) @percusse
@Tom no, but adding 4mu plus 2mu minus 4mu and 2mu plus -2mu minus -4mu gives 6mu exactly :D

@ChristianHupfer hi there
 
@tohecz: Hi to Paris/Prague ;-)
 
@ChristianHupfer Paris currently ;)
 
@tohecz: Well, probably nearer to me than Prague :D
@tohecz:: Yes, Paris is 515 km distant to my place (which will be only three days left), whereas Prague is 598 km away
 
@ChristianHupfer depends on where exatly you are :) because I think that it's approximately half and half in Germany
 
10:47 AM
@tohecz: Given two capitals, I am basically in the middle of nowhere ;-) But it's very near to the border to France, the Rhine river is about 15 km from here

Is this off-topic? What do you think?

Q: What are the main differences between Texmaker and TeXstudio?

VicentAlthough I've read these two posts: Texmaker vs TeXstudio (comparison) LaTeX Editors/IDEs I would like to ask again specifically about Texmaker and TeXstudio, because they are quite well ranked in the "Big list", and one of them was born as a fork of the other one. What are the main differen...

tedious to answer that. More a "do-it-for-me" question in me eyes.
 
@LaRiFaRi: I think it's not off-topic, but will lead to opinion-based answers (if any)... for me, it's one of those boring questions on TeX editors
 
@ChristianHupfer yea, I meant "off-topic 'cause too broad"
No specific problem to help with
ah well, I will leave it as it is. Maybe there is someone who did some comparison for a block or alike who'd like to answer...
 
anyone expert in bidi....
I took the image size reported by pdftex in your original example and replaced by a rule of the same size. I now get the same error so I updated your example and deleted all my earlier comments. this looks to be an error in the right-to-left support babel package which is re-ordering pdf internals and making a "restore" come before a "save" and corrupting the command stack. — David Carlisle 4 mins ago

@DavidCarlisle well, is that an error in bidi or in graphicx? :D :P (and why there's no smiley :C?)
 
@tohecz I was just going to ask @JosephWright that same question, Joseph do you know if the save/restore pairs in the L3 drivers are safe wrt bidi controls? (Also I haven't quite worked out where in the output routine it trips, it's sensitive to the float size.
