comment Unvoluntarily page break [SOLVED]
remove the \\ before the vspace that's completely wrong (don't you get a no line here to end error??) remove the center from outside the figure, other than that it is impossible to say unless you make a complete example that people can test.

comment Installation of TeX Live 2015 hangs at “package-specific postactions”
I have no idea what auxtex is and if you install texlive from the web site you don't need any other software you can type the latex document in any editor that you want (notepad for example) and all other software that you need is included.

comment How to produce outlined characters using command
@Sigur sure yes but they all look like overprinting of something rather than using an outline font

comment LuaTeX unicode escape sequence in an ASCII file (for graceful degradation)
@UlrikeFischer It wouldn't be hard to define \Uchar(cat) for pdftex that expanded to the some (non expandable) code standing in for the character, easier to do that than make ^^^^ work

comment How to produce outlined characters using command
In general you need a font with that design but that looks like just overprinting \textbf{f\hspace{-.3em}f} or whatever space works in each case/

comment issue with macro expansion
why are you using primitive tex delimited argument definitions in what purports to be a latex document? Why not define interview to be an environment?

comment Undefined control sequence \end{tikzpicture}
You can not possibly have a tex error that says Undefined control sequence \end{tikzpicture} the subject of that error is always a control sequence that is a single command. As well as fixing the example so it demonstrates the error, you should place the exact error message from the log in a {} code block in your question, so that line breaks (which are very important in tex error messages) are preserved.

comment Undefined Control Sequences
It is impossible to say anything with the question in this form, please show the exact error from the log from ! to ? in a code {} section in the question so line breaks are preserved.

comment How to abbreviate “\begin{frame}”, “\end{frame}”, and “\frametitle”?
In general it's a bad idea to abbreviate latex environment syntax, sometimes it works but for many enviroments (frame, ams align, verbatim, etc) it does not work, and even when it works for latex it usually confuses syntax highlighting etc. Environments are the main syntactic structure of the latex language, they shouldn't be hidden, they should be used.

comment How can I make the appendix one column to fit my very long equations? And also keep equations from running off the page?
you are loading amsmath which defines many multi-line displays, do not use equation use multline or gather or align depending on your requirements. Also why capital C in arcCosh ??

comment Inserting images in report class document
png is a bitmap (which is why your question was confusing until you clarified it in comments) to include a bmp format bitmap into pdf something would have to convert it so rather than bloat pdftex by including every kind of image convertor it includes png for bitmaps and jpg for lossy compressed images and leaves conversion to those formats to external programs

comment Inserting images in report class document
@RyanG pdftex can not include bmp, you can losslessly convert it to png first.

comment Skip figure counter
article class figures do not increment any counter. Please always post a complete small document that shows the problem. Oh but you (now) show subfigure which redefines the numbering scheme so that changes the problem completely. But the example can not be run please compete it with \documentclass \end{document} etc and check that the code as posted produces bad numbering.

comment Skip figure counter
I don't see how the part below the edit addresses the problem (and please don't recommend [h!] as that usually just generates a latex warning, you should always include t or better p) The part before edit should be deleted as figure* is not related to the question at all.

comment Skip figure counter
figure (unless you have redefined it) does not use the counter at all, only \caption increments the counter.

comment How to set different width of columns?
@Vladimir sorry I got the syntax wrong. (even though it's my package:-)

comment pdflatex from texlive enters infinite loop
@UlrikeFischer oh is this another etex breakage, I didn't see much obvious register use in the log, should look again I suppose...

comment How to set different width of columns?
@Vladimir No! write all the first column text then & then all the second column then & then the third. X columns can take multiple paragraphs.

where is what? the change?, not sure exactly.

comment pdflatex from texlive enters infinite loop
@ChristianHupfer do you really not get a loop with the file as above? (It makes longer and longer strings cccccccc until you interrupt it.
