problem with table of contents when I restart chapters counter

Numbered chapters below not numbered parts are always problematic. Resetting the chapter number with the part makes this problem even much more serious. hyperref uses the number to generate the link anchor. So, if there is no part number and but several chapters with the same number, the link anchor...

Converting from TeXstudio to Kile Topic is solved

What do you mean with "import". TeXstudio and Kile are editors. You just have to load the main file of the document and run pdflatex/lualatex/xelatex and maybe makeindex/xindy, biber/bibtex, makeglossaries etc. Independent from the used editor, the PDF is always build by the same program.

biblatex provides this with biber this is easy to handle. See the example in section 3.13.3, the environment in section 3.7.4 and option refsection in section 3.1.2.1 of the biblatex manual.

You can put the commands in a ⋅ tex file and load this with \input or \InputIfFileExists , ⋅ a package (extension .sty) and load the package with \usepackge (or inside another package or class using \RequirePackage . See a mostly complete LaTeX introduction for more information t...

Bibtex Citation X on page X undefined

You have to run BiBTeX after the first pdflatex/lualatex/xelatex run after adding a new \cite and do up to two runs of pdflatex/lualatex/xelatex after the BiBTeX run. See: Question mark or bold citation key instead of citation number . BTW: I would recommend to use biblatex and biber . See: Biblatex...

Chapter Headings in LoF and LoT

What is "it"? Adding the headings to LoF or LoT should also work for subsections and subsubsections: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{mwe} \begin{document} \tableofcontents \listoffigures \section{Testsection} \addcontentsline{lof}{section}{\protect\numberline{\thesection}Testsection} \...

just print another .bib file

biblatex/biber allows several \addbibresource commands (and also several \printbibliography commands) in the same document. Only the keys have to be unique. \bibliography of the old BiBTeX way allows to use a comma-separated list of bib-files instead of only one file. To print not cited entries you ...

exercise package and exercises package

You only need a short look into the manuals to see that they are two packages with completely different user interfaces and also different features. The user part of both manuals consists of 6-10 pages each, so it is surely not too much to take a closer look at them.

Beamer error for math equations Topic is solved

% always starts a comment. So your equation is \item $ u_x = u cos( only and indeed a $ is missing. To add a percent-character you have to use \% instead of % . But note, cos is the product of the three variables c, o and s not the cosine function. The function would be \cos . And \%alpha would...
