comment Export to PDF on OS X, font missing on Windows
This looks like it was done on version 10. The PDF export process changed a lot in that version, so I can't be sure that this answer is relevant to the poster, who is using v9.

comment Problem with Style in a Plot
@SeyhmusGüngören - use the LegendLayout option to LineLegend, eg LineLegend[63, Range[4], LegendLayout -> {"Row", 2}]

comment Simplify a series expansion including product and multiplication
Welcome to Mathematica.SE! Could you please add the actual code you evaluated before the Series function? % just refers to the prior evaluation, and we don't know exactly what you've done.

comment Labeling a bar chart, changing how rotated labels are centered
Much more elegant than my version, +1! My function was built to be used with FrameTicks, not Placed, so I didn't have these options.

comment Plotting/Visualization in Workbench?
No, I mean tht you can launch the notebook from the Eclipse / Workbench project, which launches the Mathematica front end, and you can run the Manipulate (Note - case-sensitive!!) from there, possibly calling functions you have written in the .m file. The front end is provided; it is called Mathematica.

comment Does PrivateFontOptions -> {“OperatorSubstitution” ->False} fail in version 10?
@Thomas - thanks for checking. I'm mainly interested in whether the Mathematica fonts are needed in simple graphs using only things like minus signs and percentage signs, in version 10. As I only have version 10 for Mac at the moment, I can't test EMF because that's Windows-only.

comment Does PrivateFontOptions -> {“OperatorSubstitution” ->False} fail in version 10?
@AlexeyPopkov - I wish, but we have tested this extensively (for three years! :-) and (1) EPS doesn't actually work that well on Windows and if you then convert the Word/PowerPoint to PDF, the whole graphic shows as a black box. Also EPS doesn't embed fonts the way PDF does. Meanwhile (2) the powers that be at work have deemed the output quality from PNG to be unacceptable, given that they sometimes need to adjust the size when including it in PowerPoint, depending on how many footnotes. Given that EMF works in v9, they probably just won't upgrade.

@Thomas - would you mind checking how EMF format exported plots work in Word/PowerPoint on a computer without the Mathematica fonts installed?
