Publication quality plots in papers

Seems like this thread is a bit off topic now, but I'll chime in anyway. When I co-write a paper with latex users, I use latexdiff:

http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/support/latexdiff/

When I need reviews from non-latex users (e.g. my boss), I have them markup a PDF by hand or via pdf markup software (e.g. Adobe Acrobat).

I've started keeping papers under version control for latex. But, if
I have collaborators who use word, then I just track changes.

Yeah, I check in my LaTeX file, bibliography, and any python
scripts for figures into a subversion repo.

http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/has nice annotation
tools for PDF reviewing, and its very fast and it works

on

Linux through CrossOver (probably would work via wine as
well).

What type of revision tracking do you use? Treat your
documents like

code?

Google code has in-place commenting option that makes me
think that

document

revisioning would be easier that way (one day when I start
using Latex:)

My advisor just writes on a print out of the PDF. I'll
make the changes in the revision tracked latex document.

Hi Ryan, What is your typical reviewing process? Do
you ask people to review on PDF outputs or via
version controlled Latex document? OpenOffice also
has a good review system where I can track my/others
changes easily. On Tue, Apr 27, 2010 at 3:27 PM,

I know this started with non-Latex, but I've
found that passing

around

latex-generated PDFs works well to get reviews
from non-Latex people. But then again, the
people I work with don't rely upon MS Office's
electronic editing capabilities.
