Accents not showing even with UTF8

Unicode char èco (U+DA)

The character è has the Unicode value U+00E8. The error message shows U+DA, which suggests that the file has been saved with the wrong encoding. You need to configure TeXShop to use UTF-8. See, for example, TeXShop doesn't remember file encoding.

Trouble with glossary

You don't need: \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{List of Abbreviations} Just use: \usepackage[acronym,toc]{glossaries} By double entries, do you mean that there are multiple items with the same entry information, for example ⋅ FB Foo Bar, 1 ⋅ FB Foo Bar, 1 or do you mean some entri...

Good replacement for xfig

You can use flowframtk to draw images and then export to pgf code. You can provide alternative LaTeX code for text areas . (It's a reimplementation of jpgfdraw and is still a little experimental, so I'm not sure if it qualifies as a good replacement. :) One day I'll have the time to do some more wor...

Database, List, References Topic is solved

You could try using the glossaries-extra package. For example: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{longtable} \usepackage[nostyles]{glossaries-extra} \newcommand*{\newoperation}[4]{% \newglossaryentry{#1}{name={#2},symbol={#3},description={#4}}% } \newcommand*{\operationref}[1]{% \glsdisp{#1}{\textb...

Date and timestamp in footer as well as pagenumber Topic is solved

For the page number on the right you just need to change "C" to "R": \fancyfoot[R]{\thepage} For the date and time stamp, do you mean the time stamp of the document build? If so, you can use \DTMnow from the datetime2 package: \fancyfoot[L]{\DTMnow} If you mean the time stamp of ...

Formatting two columns "single-spaced"

The multicols environment tries to balance the columns so that they're both the same height. This can cause some extra vertical space. You could try using \raggedcolumns which will prevent the bottom lines for each column from being aligned. For example: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{multicol}...

Index and Abbreviations print ... not the Glossary.

This is a bit of a late reply, and you may have fixed it by now, but have you checked that the shell escape hasn't been disabled? Check the log file for the line: restricted \write18 enabled. and also for the line: runsystem(makeindex -s doc.ist -t doc.glg -o doc.gls doc.glo) (where the file is call...

Wrapfigures in Glossary

(I'm sorry this answer is rather late. I only noticed it when I was browsing through the unanswered list. If you've already found a solution, maybe this might help someone else.) I think in this case it might be easier not to use a float. There are non-floating alternatives where you can use \captio...

Extracting number from macro parameter string Topic is solved

Here's one way to do it: \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \newcommand{\parsetocentry}[1]{% \iparsetocentry#1\empty\empty\empty\endparsetocentry } \def\iparsetocentry#1#2#3\endparsetocentry{% \ifx#1\numberline\relax \def\theentrynum{#2}% \else \def\theentrynum{}% \fi } \parsetocentry{\numberl...

Re: Know How Article Editor Image Error

Oh, updates? Nice. Yes, I've added information about some of the newer features of glossaries and also the glossaries-extra extension package. :) The image thing wasn't too much of a problem. I ended up putting the new images on my site and linking to them instead. Luckily there weren't too many of...
