comment Package not found
During installation I can change the folders where I would like to have them (e.g. /Applications/NewFolder). I thought that within TeXShop all paths/directories for packages will be set to this folder automatically. I installed everything again with default settings and now it works.

comment Package not found
I have kind of the same problem as OP. A couple of days ago I installed the latest version of MaxTex (from tug.org/mactex). I chose to move everything which comes with the pkg-file to /Applications/MacTex/ (all packages are in the same folder). When I try to compile one of my tex-files I get the message: "/usr/texbin/pdflatex not found." This is where I found pdflatex: /Applications/MacTex/texlive/2012/bin/universal-darwin/pdftex. All this is a bit odd, since this should not happen according to the Max-Tex-FAQs (see AT.01)

comment The meaning of the percent sign in LaTeX coding
@JosephWright You're right. You can close the thread (btw: can I close my threads myself?). When I typed in my question, tex.stackexchange.com/questions/7453/… did not appear as a possible answer.

@DanielE.Shub Please see edit. I know, this makes hardly any difference but that's how it must be. My school told me so.

@DanielE.Shub Sorry, my fault. All lists and chapters are of the same level. I took away the spacings. Hope it's clearer now.

comment Table caption Width
Great approach (don't know why OP did not accept). However, getting the width of an object might be easy if your object is an imported file (png etc.). But when it comes to a pgfplot-generated object, how do you retrieve its dimensions? (Since some pgfplots needs a lot of code-lines it would be rather strange to insert the same code again into autowidth as its argument)
