comment How can I call a macro within \tldatelabelcventry
@Trefex I didn't notice... Whoa, the . is indeed hardcoded in \cventry, so it must be removed with a patch. See edit.

comment How can I call a macro within \tldatelabelcventry
@Trefex Great, much better. Just one more question (I don't know anything about the packages you're using): Do you really need only the year? \usebibmacro{date+extrayear} sounds like it would produce a formatted date.

comment How can I call a macro within \tldatelabelcventry
Maybe you should make it more clear when this does and doesn't run for you. If I replace \cvline{\usebibmacro{date+extrayear}}{% by \tldatelabelcventry{2006}{% then I get errors and no dvi file.

comment Why is TeX/LaTeX-“programming” so different from other languages in terms of syntax?
I find that the code golf site is a pretty good eye-opener what "other languages" really means and personally, I dont't even find half of them easier to read than TeX (at least when it's not written by @DavidCarlisle).

comment Should tcolorbox enforce inner boxes to be unbreakable?
Above you said that the breakable inner boxes could work under yery controlled circumstances. Maybe you could add a check for things which would break? Like, if \par would lead to problems, you could redefine \par to give an error message inside an inner breakable box. In that case, in some sense the "very controlled circumstances" could be enforced.

If you copy the relevant part of your log into the question, one can analyse it in an answer.

Here's the culprit: ! Undefined control sequence. \@makeschapterhead ...s \sei@adjustchapterspacing #1\par \nobreak \vskip 40\... l.97 \tableofcontents The missing command is \sei@adjustchapterspacing, not \tableofcontents. Reading TeX error messages is tricky; apparently TeXstudio doesn't cope.

Furthermore, Undefined control sequence \begin{abstract} isn't really the typical LaTeX error message. Are you getting these error messages from some workflow tool? It would be more informative if you could quote the original error messages from the .log file.

At the beginning of the .log file, there should be some info whether the file report.cls was found and where. Check the file path, just in case you accidentally created a file of this name :-)

comment Can I make an “abbreviation expansion” in PDF visible?
@Josef Yes, so I probably need to add the markup to \pdftooltip. Just nesting the TeX macros didn't work though ;-)

comment Can I make an “abbreviation expansion” in PDF visible?
@Josef I thought as much, but so far I have not taken a look into the innards of the pdfcomment package. My observation was just that \pdftooltip offers no option for the underlining and \pdfmarkupcomment offers a number of options, but is not configurable to look exactly like \pdftooltip :-)
