comment In a table, give an empty line the height 0, so that it virtually disappears
I actually did not think of that, but I tried it and it did not work. Following your suggestion, I have now adapted my code and given an MWE to show the problem. Thank you for your effort!

comment How to suppress source type in apacite (APA) reference list without removing the type-field entry
Can you tell how to change the year from (2015) to just 2015? analogously, I tried searching the bst file for parentheses and similar, but found nothing!

comment Substituting with \StrSubstitute does not work
yes, I am afraid that your solution might not work anymore. I'm sorry, when providing a minimum working example, I did not think of the specific case that there could be a solution that helps in the MWE, but not in my case with several strings. You provided a solution that works if I only want to substitute one string, but the general case where someone would like to change several strings is just one step away. But does anyone perhaps have any more ideas?

comment Substituting with \StrSubstitute does not work
this is great, but what if I need to do several replacements in the input file, such as replacing abcde with abcDe and xyz with xYZ?

comment Substituting with \StrSubstitute does not work
I'm sorry, I could not find anything on the web regarding an l3reg latex package. I'm aware of the use of search and replace in a document, but this does not work on input files that are generated by another software. And if it only works in the text, then my point is: what is the point in programming the \StrSubstitute command at all if \StrSubstitute{abcde}{d}{D} needs to replace abcde everyhwere, and hence does nothing more than any editor's function replace all abcde with abcDe? Then this command would have no right to exist at all, so I'm sure there must be something to it?

comment Substituting with \StrSubstitute does not work
but if it works only on the argument, and not on further occurences of the argument elsewhere in the text, then what will be the use of this function? Then I will manually have to work through the whole file and place StrSubstitute everywhere where I have an abcde, but then I can just replace abcde directly, if that's what you're saying.

comment change .bst file to get journal name bold
It effectively doesn't, it was changed in a way to stop it from adding [Journal Article] or [Book Chapter] to every reference.

comment incompatibility of endfloat and “input” tables from other files?
Thank you. I had arrived at this idea because both in my original file, as well as in any further reduction down to the MWE, the problems always only started with the first table that would be input.

comment suddenly serifs in math mode
okay, I used newtx and it looks awesome, great! Now I did some research and read that newtxmath should be used with newtxtext; this does not work for me though, "fatal error, pdf could not be created". Are any of the following math-packages redundant and can be taken out? \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{mathtools} \usepackage{cases} \usepackage{newtxtext} %\usepackage{newtxmath}
