glossaries automake option does not work with \clearpage at end of document

If you have at least v4.42 you can use the automake=immediate package option, which will use the shell escape at the start of \makeglossaries before the glossary files are opened.

Hacking with LaTeX! How to protect?

There are also some TeX Live security settings in texmf.cnf regarding I/O. You can use kpsewhich -a texmf.cnf to find the file. Input ( \input or \openin ) is governed by openin_any and output ( \openout ) is governed by openout_any . The most secure setting is p (paranoid) openin_any = p openout_an...

List of Abbrevations as Chapter Topic is solved

The reason for the list of abbreviations appearing as a section rather than a chapter is because you have explicitly instructed the glossaries package to do this with the section package option: \usepackage[toc,% add the glossary/list of abbreviations to the table of contents nopostdot,nonumberlist,...

Glossaries: abbreviation names in bold

The glossary style can be set globally using the style package option. For example: \usepackage[style=long]{glossaries} or you can set it locally within the optional argument of \printglossary . For example: \printglossary[title=List of Abbreviations,type=\acronymtype,style=long] There's a complete ...

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}...
