Linux (Debian) user since long time ago, some of my actual fields of interest are currently improve my limited skills with LaTeX and R (at the same time thanks to Sweave). My apologies if you find unclear anything of what I write. English is not my native language and I've never been in any type of regular English courses.

Precooked comments: Text building blocks

Welcome to TeX.sx! Please 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}.

A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces or enclose words in backticks ```, they'll be marked as code, as can be seen in my edit. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it).

comment Inserting Images
You can safely omit also the extension of the image file. That is, \includegraphics[scale=0.3]{hi} also should work if the image is in the working directory.

comment Responsive design with LaTeX
Making a PDF for differents sizes (A4,A5, etc...) will produce disastrous results except for very simple layouts. Even with some conditionally changes (font size, margins, ...) and using relative lengths instead of fixed lenghts (i.e., 0.3\linewidth instead of 5cm) whenever is possible, too many things will break in a complex document.

comment Responsive design with LaTeX
LaTeX is designed to print texts in paper of know size and printer options are in the PDF viewer (zoom, orientation, tc.). Said that, you have also some control of how show the PDF in the screen with the hyperref package (pdfpagemode=FullScreen, etc.) but not much more, I afraid.

comment Use of glossary for beginner
@mark Some editors have a front-end for some of these commands, in other editors you can configure the compilation sequence. But anyway, you can always run pdflatex, makeglossaries, bibtex, etc. when you close your editor in the system prompt. Run also in the system command texdoc arara.

@mark Exactly, \include is mainly for chapters after the preamble. See When should I use \input vs. \include?.

\makeindex must be before \begin{document}. There are not \newglossaryentry for "maths" word.

comment Obfuscate Latex command
@FilippoBistaffa Define your renamed commands in external files (.cls, .sty as already mentioned, or \input{} in the preamble a .tex file) but do not share this files. In any other case, no matter how much obscured is your code, someone can do a reverse engineering.
