Here is something to get you started. The configuration assumes that each row of the worksheet will include 3 questions. However, you can easily adapt it if necessary. As far as the figures are concerned, the only one which seems worth making a little more automatic is the circle because that always follows the same structure. In other cases, the labels ...

It occured to me, yesterday, that there does exist (at least) one font which includes glyphs for building a truly extensible integral sign: it is the PostScript Symbol font (psyr), which has such glyphs in positions 243 (octal '363, hexadecimal "F3), 244 (octal '364, hexadecimal "F4) and 245 (octal '365, hexadecimal "F5). Thus an approach along these lines ...

To to a large extent, once you have downloaded MacTeX itself you will not need to install any packages except to keep your distribution up-to-date, and for this you use TeX Live Utility. What TeX Live Utility is for TeX Live Utility is not a general purpose package installer, but a tool to manage an existing TeX Live distribution (in your case, MacTeX). ...

This is what I do: If you are serious about it, it is possible to save your entire LaTex distribution (including binaries) as well as your own code with every final compile. I do this in fact and it is not as much of a problem as you might think. You could use a version control system, but I use 7zip which allows differential backups of all modified (and ...

It seems that you have downloaded the most recent version of tikz-cd and stored it in your personal tree, under ~/texmf. However, this version of tikz-cd requires a more recent version of tikz than you have on your system and it fails because it needs files that are absent from that tikz distribution. You could download also TikZ version 3.0.0; however this ...

microtype is fine. You will get slightly different results with different engines is all, depending on how well supported the engine is by the package or the package by the engine. (Everything works in pdfTeX. Xe/LuaTeX have differing levels of functionality.) mathspec should not be loaded when you are compiling with (pdf)TeX. You must be getting ...

The gtpart.cls is located in a rather unhelpful place in TeX Live 2015. (This should therefore apply to MacTeX users, I think.) This should be brought to the attention of the developers if they mean it to be included in TeX Live. The class (.cls) file can be acquired from CTAN. Or, from your working directory. you can do something like cp \$(locate ...

minitoc From the minitoc documentation (section 2.17 Using the hyperref package with minitoc; emphasis added): Since version #31, minitoc works correctly with the powerful hyperref package [...] If you add the loading of the hyperref package to a document yet using minitoc, you will get error message about spurious closing braces. Just let finish the ...

You don't need to load babel if your document is in English. You can just input the French letters as \`e for “è”, \'e for “é” and so on. You can even type directly the letters if you add \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} ensuring that your file is UTF-8 encoded (which most editors nowadays choose by default). So an example is \documentclass{article} ...

Apparently TeXcount had a problem with the options for these packages being on different lines in the .tex file. The problem was this: \usepackage[pdftex, plainpages=false, pdfpagelabels, urlcolor=black]{hyperref} and the solution was this: \usepackage[pdftex,plainpages=false,pdfpagelabels,urlcolor=black]{hyperref}

This is a situation where probably using LaTeX directly is more adequate. Lyx is a convenient interface to LaTeX for people who don't want to be concerned with the "programming" their document, and it is very easy to use as long as it runs "out of the box". Here, a lot of effort would need to go into making Lyx understand rsc template. It appears that using ...

The basic advice should be to start with a documentclass that is closest to your needs/or standard in your area/fits with a journal you are intending to submit to. After that only add packages if you find you need them for functionality not provide by the class. A standard class in physics is revtex or rather revtex4-1. The documentation contains an ...
