comment Table title and notes not appearing in PNAS
Using \RequirePackage{siunitx} before the \documentclass{...} works better but then the space between the cells in the table gets squashed

comment Table title and notes not appearing in PNAS
@ChristianHupfer the problem then becomes that the style is wrong as well as the placement of the table. There is definitely something in siunitx that the class doesn't like. The caption package also gives you a warning about incompatible class.

comment Trouble with commas in subscript of chemical formula (using mhchem)
You should always specify the version when loading mhchem. in this case, using the original code when specifying version=4 the commas appear in the text but as normal text not subscripts.

comment How to convert a RGB color code to rgb color code?
really not related to TeX, but a bit of algebra might help: rgb=rgb255/255 ? otherwise you should be able to define the colour with \definecolor{lbx}{RGB}{r,g,b} with values between between 0 and 255.

comment Comment out sections of text in bib file
@JacobAkkerboom no but the question was about biber/biblatex. I never claimed that this solution would work with bibtex.

comment Convert LaTeX fonts to TTF fonts for use in Adobe Illustrator
BeraSans should be a type1 version of Bitstream Vera Sans so you should be able to get this one in TTF.

comment Anomaly in cyrillic letters of TeX Gyre font sets with LuaLaTex
as fas as I can tell, the glyphs have been removed from the font entirely. I do not know why you can access them by loading the filename, because I can't. As I said in the answer, I suspect you have a version of the font that gets accessed when you call the font name and a different one when you call the file name. The logs should be able to tell you if this is the case

comment How do I open PDF in Adobe Reader DC without locking the file from being updated by pdflatex?
I don't think it is a viewer issue but rather a Windows issue as Adobe Reader doesn't lock the files on either Mac or Linux.

comment Copy math equation in Mathtype
A silly question maybe but why do you want to use the $...$ syntax instead of the \[...\]' or (...)` ones. For the preference you have chosen, mathtype is correct and the $...$ is a TeX syntax, not a LaTeX one. If you are writing your document in LaTeX (as opposed to plain TeX, you should keep what Mathtype gives you. Otherwise there seem to be a Plain TeX export option. All that behing say, @arne is right, and you should probably take the time to learn how to write equations in (La)TeX directly. It will be a lot faster and a lot more flexible.

thanks for the correction @moewe, I always forget about this. I knew it wasn't the .tex but I never actually use the extensions when invoking the commands

how do you compile your document? you need to do pdflatex>biber>pdflatex>pdflatex. the biber part is what creates your blb from the call in the document. every time you add a citation in your document you need to redo the whole thing

biber should be the default backend on the latest texlive (if not the one before) so you should not have to specify it. What was your workflow before? how did you compile your document? I would suggest clearing all the temporary files and recompile from scratch and see what it does.

biber should be run on the .aux file not the .tex file. you can leave the extension out altogether and it will pick the correct file

can you also post the output log from biber? it may shed some light as to what it thinks is going on.

isn't it biblatex's way of saying that it cannot find the reference. Instead of printing [??] it prints [key].

comment No PDF output file and no error message
Welcome to TeX.sx. I assume when you say that "the previous PDF is not replaced", you actually have the previous pdf opened already in a reader. This can be an issue on some systems and some readers where the reader will lock the file. If you close the file and recompile, it should write the new pdf properly.

comment LuaLaTeX changes font smoothing with polyglossia or fontspec (and math looks weird)
Which pdf viewer are you using? This looks very much like a viewer issue rather than anything else. in Adobe reader, they all look identical. I suspect, it is the difference in rendering between type1 fonts (used without fontspec) and OFT fonts (used with it). The math part always look the same on both as the type 1 font is used in both cases

comment Clickable URLs: no click possible after the line break
Just to clarify, the url package does not make the link clickable, it only formats it and allow it to break in a sensible place. However, some pdf readers will parse the text and if a url is detected will allow the user to click on the link, but that link is not part of the pdf. hyperref on the other hand, does create clickable links and not only for urls but also for internal links such as references, toc, labels, etc... Additionally, hyperref will only allow to break links by default if the pdftex engine is used, if you are using latex>dvipdfm then you need the breaklinks option.

comment Writing Japanese in Latex2e
from the comments, the requirements for psfrag, eps, postscript macros and so forth, using pdflatex is probably not going to work here.
