comment Coloured shapes inside triangle
Welcome to TeX.SX! On this site, a question should typically revolve around an abstract issue (e.g. "How do I get a double horizontal line in a table?") rather than a concrete application (e.g. "How do I make this table?"). Questions that look like "Please do this complicated thing for me" tend to get closed because they are either "off topic", "too broad", or "unclear". Please try to make your question clear and simple by giving a minimal working example (MWE): you'll stand a greater chance of getting help.

comment Image covers whole of a column and not at desired location
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

comment Installing LyX over a vanilla TeXLive
It works, thanks. You can even convince yum to download the file for you using yum --downloadonly, but it's a bit complicated.

@DG' Unfortunately the texlive-dummy isn't set properly, so it doesn't work :-/

comment New line inside color area
Please, could you show us what you actually want to achieve? It seems to me like that $...$ is not the right thing you should use, but we can't know.

comment Encoding problem: French accents and umlauts are turned into �
I would suggest try some online converted to UTF-8. It may be really well able to guess the right encoding.

comment How to do centered interlinear text in LaTeX
This shows that most functionality of TeX-core is available in the LaTeX2e layer. However, your a's are "jumping" ...

comment Drawing gamma function in LaTeX
Well, the it would be nice to show your effort, or to be more specific. This way it looks like you didn't search at all. And no, I don't think that the gamma function exists...

comment Drawing gamma function in LaTeX
Hello. Have you tried searching this forum (or anywhere else on the web) for ways how to plot a function in LaTeX?

comment “automatical corrections” of typos in english tex
@Sveinung IMHO both this question and the one you link are just and simply duplicates of the universal LaTeX Editors/IDEs.

comment How to make LaTeX do auto punctuation like Word
@egreg and the S after ( would not. I wonder when people realize that automation like this is just completely unreliable hell on earth. Oh, I forgot that with the current state of education of the nations, such automated tool, no matter how bad, performs zillion times better than an average person. :(

comment Is there a LaTeX package that contains an environment for excursions and digressions?
As the two people above say: Show us how it should look like and we can tell you how to do it (if we know). Remember we do not own a crystal ball ;)

comment Reference a node's color by using node name
Welcome to TeX.SX! This is a very interesting question! To make it even better, please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem.

comment Exclude the citations in the list of figures
This is tricky, because you'd have to exclude the space before them as well. I'd stick to what James suggests in his answer.

comment Texmaker: how to input “é” and getting “\'e” in the editor window
@pluton Journals do have strange requirements, and as an author you have two options: accept them or do not publish. So I don't see what you argue over here and why. The request Robert Green made is completely reasonable (and actually, easy to do in many editors). Using search&replace is probably a possible workaround, but that does not invalidate the question.

comment A longer arrow in a diagram
To the downvoter: If you have to downvote a newcomer's question, then at least have the dignity to comment on what do you think is wrong with it.

comment A longer arrow in a diagram
Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. Can you please post a drawing of what you actually want to achieve (maybe hand-written and scanned, or made as a sketch in some painting software or such)? From your question it seems to me that you try to find a complicated way to do something for which good LaTeX packages exist.
