comment Changing language back and forth with polyglossia
@UlrikeFischer Can you make that an anwser - issuing that \directlua command at the beginning of the paragraph after the french environment fixes the problem, assumning the poster is prepared to have the text in separate paragraphs rather than using `\`

comment Changing author name in bibtex
What programs are you using? Compiling with latex and bibtex will not alter the contents of the bib file. In general the solution to get this type of author correctly printed is to enclose in an extra set of brackets: {{Alternate Hydo Energy Centre}}. There must be a duplicate question around somewhere...

comment How to make my sty file work only inside a environment?
I am voting to keep this question open, but it does need clarification and I would urge those involve to discuss it on chat.

comment Drawing knots with 8 crossings and labels
Actually the knot code is in pst-psm.pro which is read at the dvips stage. It is located under /usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf-dist/dvips/pst-knot/pst-psm.pro on my system. In that file you will find things like /knot-7-6 followed by points described in polar coordinates and then the path specified with outgoing angles and over/under crossings.

comment Drawing knots with 8 crossings and labels
Why not have a look at the code in the pst-knot package, i.e. the file pst-knot.sty, and try to adapt the code there. If you run latex on a file using pst-knot the log file will give the complete path to locate this style file.

comment Faint text after new theorem
Actually your log shows enough information. Your beamer class is very old - from 2005. You should update your system.

comment Faint text after new theorem
(a) you should add that to this question, not start a new question - just use the edit button (b) you forgot to add \listfiles before compiling, it is just the output of that command that would be most interesting.

comment can someone please explain the enumitem horizontal spacing parameters?
@FionaSmith Glad it helped. No problem about the boundy, Bernards answer is good.

comment Faint text after new theorem
I don't see such an effect. (May be it is a viewer problem.) Can you add \listfiles to the beginning of your document and post the resulting list of file versions?

comment how to align equation on page
@SvendTveskæg Both will work (try changing removing the locale change). For a native Portuguese speaker the comma will be most natural.

comment bibliography file error using apa
I second Johannes_B's request for a MWE. Your posted bib file compiles fine a minimal document, so the problem lies elsewhere.

@SvendTveskæg Thanks, thats interesting. I have updated my answer with a variation on that.

comment Import a template from a zip file
You need to unpack the zip file, either by double clicking on it or using unzip. You will then get a directory containing the template and related files. It is the template in this directory that you should open.

comment problem on the parentheses direction in equations
That is essentially what I meant by saying "normally I would write such chunks in \text". However, the \mathit version may be more appropriate inside some right-to-left material, where mathematics still has to be left-to-right. We don't really have enough context from the poster.
