### Shuffling options (choices) in a multiple choice question paper using examdesign class

Dear All,

I've been using the examdesign class in LaTeX. Although I am able to create
different sets (same questions in a different order) in a fully multiple
choice question paper, I am unable to shuffle the options (choices). Has
anyone tried this? I was unable to find any solution on the internet. Any
help in this regard would be highly appreciated.

Regards,

Naren Bharatwaj

### [Other] Rights expired books in Malayalam

Dear friends,

Here is an effective way to spend your spare time, particularly that of
student folk during vacation period. Please take a look at this web
site<http://books.sayahna.org/?page_id=115>.
If you are in agreement with what is told there and if you are able to
spend an hour a day or a few hours every week, please get in touch with me.
We have cloud based facilities to enter text data, proof read and typeset
in Indian languages. We've started with Malayalam just because we are well
versed in Malayalam, but if there are volunteers available to take charge
of other Indian languages, we are only happy to help them. Any efforts to
participate in these activities, no matter how small it might be,  will
obviously enrich the presence of Indian language and literature in the
virtual world, the position of which is dismal, particularly nicely
produced free books, when compared to other languages of the world.

We have so far released 18 books in pdf and epub formats which are
available at: http://books.sayahna.org/ml/ .  All the books are distributed
as per Creative Commons license (some cc-by-sa and remaining cc-by-nc),

Best regards

### TeX4ht: diacritical marks

I am using TeX4ht to convert a large LaTeX file to html (for epub and mobi).  My original file contains
diacritical marks (such as t with a dot below) which are rendered into png which looks ugly.  I can manually
replace all such png-s with combining diacritical marks in html.  Can this be done directly? If so, how
should the htlatex command be modied?  C. K. Raju

### Compile issues while using Beamer

Hello TUGIndia Gurus,

I am trying to use Beamer in article mode to have a common Tex file with notes and Slides that is then complied
separately to produce a set of notes and a set of Beamer slides. I understand that this can be done using
Beamerarticle (see page section 21.2, page 204 of the beamerguide). While i am able to work through the
examples, I am unable to figure out how to fix my code. I have three files Lecture1.tex, Lecture1-HO.tex,
and Lecture1-Beamer.tex.

It's content are as follows:

%Filename: Lecture1.tex
\usepackage{beamerarticle}
\mode<presentation>{\usetheme{Warsaw}}

\begin{document}

\title{Lecture 1: Start}
\author{an}
\date{\today}

\titlepage

\begin{frame}
\titlepage
\end{frame}

These are lecture notes for \emph{jumbo mumbo}. Our focus will be on
\begin{itemize}
\item Revisiting and extending the mechanics of jumbo et mumbo
\item Focusing on different \emph{identification} strategies

### Using pdfcomment to create pdftooltip

Friends,

I am trying to create tooltips in a document to show footnotes instead of
listing them at the end. I tried out an example shown in the website:
http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/34698/strange-appearance-of-tooltips-produced-by-pdfcomment.
Wle compiling, it compains that \pdftooltip is an unknown command. Could it
be because my tex installation is slightly old? Maybe, I will have to
reindstall the pdfcomment package with the latest?

Giving the document below:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{pdfcomment}


\MyShortCut{\textthing}{tooltip here}{just an example}
\MyShortCut{\Td}{\tau_\textrm{d}}{reptation time}
\MyShortCut{\Tr}{\tau_\textrm{R}}{Rouse time}

\begin{document}
Use pdflatex to compile, then open in Acrobat Reader and
put the mouse pointer above $\tau$'s

$\Td = 3 Z \Tr$

Or in text \textthing.

### XeLaTeX Resolution for pdf

Dear Friends,

I am using XeLaTex which seems  very convenient for my book with both Tamil
and Mathematics. I need to produce high quality camera-ready copy.

1. What should I do to ensure high resolution, say 1200dpi, in that pdf
file? (or is it unnecessary?).

2.   Is there an easy way to  generate/split  output into multiple pdf
say with 50 pages per file.  (I do not want to compile each chapter
as a separate file. It may upset  certain global aspects, such as index
etc).

(Both  these I know  how to accomplish when I used to create postscript
output using dvips from dvi. But I am new to XeLaTeX).

Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

Regards.

### Re: (no subject)


Dear Ashok,

and your problem of first sheet blank will disappear.
When you say \author{....} this automatically
takes of centering the authors name and affiliations.

Happy texing.

Best wishes,
Manjunath
