Your first question is somehow difficult to answer, but to do so, you should answer the question "How confidential your data is?". When you use a service like sharelatex, in some point they are going to host your data. Even though they say your data is being hosted on secure third parties, still some one else is have your data. Now, am I telling you they ...

The version without the braces is processed a tiny bit faster than the version with braces. Typesetting one million times $\frac12$ required 8.69 seconds, while a million $\frac{1}{2}$ took 8.81 seconds. This is what I call a negligible difference; the latter syntax is clearer.

I am the founder of ShareLaTeX. Pouyas answer is very good so I won't go into too much detail. Essentially we know security is very important to all of our users so we take the most care possible. However as soon as your put your data on any 3rd party service there is a chance it could all go very wrong. It is a good idea for you to always be cynical and ...

The easiest answer is to follow the table in the autolatex site. According with that table, Autolatex: Is more recent (2014 vs 2012, and in active development, as it can be seen in its git repository) Is implemented in python (vs Perl). This is a + for me :-) Supports more tex engines (as xelatex, lualatex) Can automatically convert some file types to ...

Irrespective of the 'document level' interface you use, at the level of primitives using Lua means that the \directlua primitive is being used. The logic here is easy enough to follow provided you bear in mind this is 'Lua-in-TeX'. When LuaTeX parses a file it works in the same way as 'classical' TeX. Thus each token is read and expanded, executed or ...

I think the issue comes from the "&" in "Logistics & Distribution Management". When parsing it, latex thinks it is alignment tab caracter (as stated in your log). You can try to replace "&" by "\&" (or "and" :) ).

xelatex -help suggests -interaction=STRING set interaction mode (STRING=batchmode/nonstopmode/ scrollmode/errorstopmode) you probably want batchmode but a possibly better alternative would be to fix your macro to accept empty arguments eg \ifnum\numexpr 0 < \ifx\valign#1\valign0 \else #1\fi\relax will make {} be ...

You have to run the external program makeindex. Use the Tools menu or press F12. Or choose it near the blue arrow and press the arrow. Or you can use the Options menu and configure the Quick Build (F1) to run that sequence of commands.

No. There is no way to do that. At least, there is no way to do that with beamer or any TeX software I'm aware of. The pauses just are separate pages in the output PDF. When you display the slides, a pause corresponds to a change from one page of the PDF to the next. So, if you have n pauses on a slide, you need n+1 pages in the PDF. Remove the page breaks ...

One of the most used way to do that is to split your main file in several files, and to include them with the include command. \documentclass{article} % Preamble \begin{document} \include{chap1} \include{chap2} \include{chap3} \include{chap4} \end{document} chap1.tex, …, chap4.tex being tex files containing only the content of those chapter (no preamble ...

It's just a warning, which tells you, you didn't set a backend to manage your bibliography, so biblatex uses the fallback biber. If you want to get rid of the message, you can choose manually between bibtex, bibtex8, bibtexu and biber. Just add backend=xxx in your biblatex line. Since you didn't modify the code (and hence your outcommented string says it), ...

My objective was to be able to compile easily even if the system haven't latex installed or the package are not up-to-date compared to my own system (I used several computer without all the package or with a 2 years back version). I have a git repository to centralized all my source (you can use a draft repository easily). A Makefile similar to Charlie. In ...

This isn't the prettiest solution, but it gets some of the way towards what you wanted (i.e., using latexmk and a confirmation dialog): First, your first script can be substituted for something like this: for f in "$@" do file_ext=${f##*.} if [ "$file_ext" = "tex" ] then foldername=$(dirname "$f") filename=$(basename "\$f" .tex) ...

This is a quick and dirty solution, but I do not recommend it really (;-)) Use the command \printthis[false]{% before the portions of code you do not want to end up in the .pdf file and add } after the end of that portions. It hides the content as if would be a comment. \documentclass{book} \usepackage{blindtext} \usepackage{etoolbox} ...
