Learnt LaTeX while in placement in my third year in 1999 when my assignment was to work on a massive code but was only given an laptop to do it, so had to find something to do during the long hours the thing took to compile, and solitaire doesn't remain fun for that long. I haven't look back since. Now a researcher at the University of Bristol. All my outputs are in LaTeX from papers to presentations to posters.

comment PGFPlots % in ticks labels
since the tick labels are typeset using the maths fonts, if one uses a slightly different font due to using unicode-math, it might be more appropriate to use xticklabel=\pgfmathprintnumber{\tick}\(\,\%\).

comment maths nested superscripts and subscripts displayed incorrectly inline
Thanks David, I would have understood the behaviour if it just raised the subscript, increasing the space between the 2 but here is raises both by pretty much the same amount. This means that it brings the subscript block higher than it would be in displaystyle. I will indeed use \displaystyle in the second example as this looks the most consistent with the rest.

comment vertical aligning images in table with \adjustbox only works when not every image is in an \adjustbox
@FlyingRocket yes funnily I have been trying to find the equivalent of the CSS margin/padding in LaTeX for a while and thanks to your question, now I have!

@FlyingRocket margin=.8cm .8cm will set both "left/right" and "top/bottom" to .8cm. if you only want the top/bottom margins set, you should use margin=0pt .8cm. And no you should not need the \\[.8cm] any more.

comment Wrong kerning after \beta on printout
as @MartinScharrer mentions, the pdf viewer you are using may be the issue? which one are you using and were your using the same one when your tried on a different machine?

I know that and it makes sense but I had not tweaked to it. I did not see it mention explicitly in the docs so I thought I'd mention it here since I encountered it.

Also note that the order in which the options to includegraphics are used is important---i.e., set your margins after the width and height and the keepaspectratio. I was too slow to figure that one out to post the answer before @martin-scharrer:-)

comment Invoking biblatex macro for “(visited on <date>)”
would the entry be part of your bib file? if it is you could use the \fnotecite{<key>} which would put the full reference as a footnote and not in the bibliography section. Is that what you are after?

do you want to centre an entire column or just one row, or just one cell?

comment Removing space after a graphic
@CAF there isn't for me. Are you sure the white space is not part of the graphic you are including? can you add the actual MWE that create the error?

comment Removing space after a graphic
The space is not coming from the graphics but by your use of \begin{center}...\end{center}. If you replace this with {\centering \includegraphics{...}} you should get less space around your image.
