comment How can LaTeX insert math formula in text paragraph?
It's good practice to put the \[ on its own line, followed by the math content, then the \] on its own new line. That way the shape of the document in your editor resembles what it will look like when compiled, and is easier to edit as necessary.

comment Isolate Latex Environments
Build a framework that compiles them separately into pdfs, then include the pdfs in the final document? That won't meet the page-breakable requirement, though.

comment Exam Class: don't print questions
As @nathanesau suggests, the answers package will generate a separate file of answers. Then you can \input that file in a document for answers only. The package isn't hard to use for just this purpose.

comment Where can I get a LaTeX command explanation?
I frequently just search for the command - e.g. Google latex ensuremath - and pick a link that I think will give me an explanation at the level I want.

comment How to draw a figure explaining deciles in latex
If this is a one time task consider just including the figure as an image.

comment How to draw a cube completely filled with water, the other with water by half and the last leave it empty?
Nice. The pictures are even prettier if the cube is standing on a vertex (long diagonal vertical) while being filled (not what the OP has asked for ...).

comment multiple handcrafted labels for figure
@AndrewCashner I have about 200-300 references with varying formats, often free text. To maintain my document I have to keep the reference text where the reference is in the document rather than in another file. "Footnotes" might work if there were a robust backreferencing mechanism (that worked for figures and tables too). I'm more than willing to be educated.

comment Which is better practice: rendering figures on the fly, or importing them as images?
When a figure is under construction and likely to change as the surrounding discussion changes I generate it on the fly. When that part of my (large) document is stable I comment out the local generation and include the graphic. I would recommend not mixing plots from Excel and PGFplots - use one or the other, for consistency of style.

Perhaps download.cnet.com/Free-PDF-to-SVG-Converter/… . Google may find other downloadable tools.

comment Removing citations from text and bibliography without messing up the citation numbers
Did you recompile often enough? I'm not familiar with bibtex, but you might have to run that again.

comment Dimensions of parts of a matrix
Interesting problem. Would it serve your purpose to change the font or color or background for the columns of 1s in each block?

comment I can't make what I type to pdf
Try eqnarray instead of eqmarray. But in fact eqnarray is not what you should be using. align is better. See tex.stackexchange.com/questions/196/eqnarray-vs-align
