comment bibliography in Beamer
In particular, your mention of \printbibliography seems to indicate that you are using biblatex instead of bibtex? The answer above is based on the assumption that bibtex is used (see the comments on the OP).

@Bakuriu: please ask a new question. In the question include a full MWE, indicate how you compile the file, and give the exact error. (I am pretty sure the sentence "You cannot use \bibliography outside the preamble" is not the actual error shown to you.)

@Bakuriu What in the world are you talking about? See the BibTeX user guide.

comment Problem with my unique bibliography format
For bst files, if makebst does not do what you want, you can always go in manually to edit the bst file directly. ftp.dante.de/tex-archive/info/bibtex/tamethebeast/ttb_en.pdf It is however somewhat painful.

comment Problem with my unique bibliography format
Are you actually using bibtex or biblatex? The two are somewhat different beasts. If you are going through the trouble of making your on bst file I would suppose your are using the former; if you want biblatex the writing of bbx files are much simpler (see the documentation ctan.org/pkg/biblatex )

comment Problem with my unique bibliography format
@Aradnix: didn't the OP specify using makebst? So I would suspect the style is "custom made". (Or do you mean something else?)

comment Bibtex source in JabRef
@JosephWright: one possible use-case (not necessarily that of the OP), is that sometimes one does not want all collaborators to see those 'SpecialRemarks' one might write in one's own bibliography management software.

comment Bibtex source in JabRef
Like greyshade, I would suggest looking into export filters. Another option is to save your bibtex file and then run it through something like bibtool to strip out unwanted fields.

comment Aligned \description
Incidentally, I couldn't get your MWE to build as it was missing (for me) the \euro and \textcentoldstyle commands.

Instead of \multirow, maybe you should use p? en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Tables#Text_wrapping_in_tables (or perhaps tabularx: stackoverflow.com/a/790955 )

Why would you like to avoid using tables? The type of presentation you want is basically a table, no?

comment Debian packages
@Ivica: what is \fs{2} supposed to output? Almost certainly what you need to do is to follow the instructions in the link given in the above comment, and edit the configuration for the LaTeX preamble to load the appropriate LaTeX package. We may be able to help you track down the appropriate package, but you will need to tell us what the expected outcome is. The actual configuration of Moodle, however, is likely to be off-topic here.

comment Debian packages
@SvendTveskæg: Digging around, Moodle suggests that one installs an up-to-date TeX distribution to provide the backend for the automatic LaTeX to GIF filter. So theoretically Debian's somewhat out-of-date TeXLive distribution may have something to do with the problem.

comment How to use chronology package to draw this timeline?
the phrase "where is year should be a major tick": do you mean "where each year should be a major tick"?

comment Nice scientific pictures show off
Nice. Would it make more sense to colour/style the lines so that the radial directions and the "circular" directions are distinguished upstairs?

comment After making a mistake while citing, BibTex doesn't run anymore
If it says 'file ended while scanning use of \emph' you may want to double check your source files to make sure all braces { and } are paired properly.

comment After making a mistake while citing, BibTex doesn't run anymore
Have you tried removing all "generated" files (such as the .aux, .bbl, .blg, .out, .log) from your directory and then running latex followed by bibtex?

comment numbering of theorems in chapters
You need to provide a lot more information for this to be answerable. Consider coming up with a MWE and including it in your question.

comment “Flatten” macros prior to sharing LaTeX file
@cfr I tried with separation; as it happens my usual workflow already puts the commands in a custom .sty file; all I did was change the filename to reflect the requirement (I assume, based on the documentation) that it ends in -private.sty.

comment “Flatten” macros prior to sharing LaTeX file
@TorbjørnT.: you answered with de-macro in that linked question. The documentation for that package on the CTAN website is very brief. Would you saying a few more words about it? (I've just tested it and the result doesn't look too promising: it introduced an extra brace to the preamble causing a syntax error, and made zero changes to the body. It is likely that I am using it wrong.)
