I'm going to award this you/this answer 50 rep when I can.

comment Drawing a scattering Feynman diagram with TikZ
I posted a link to a manual (maybe it's not the most up to date, sorry) at the bottom of my question edit. In terms of what the snake=coil is supposed to look like - it's the one that features in the second image of my question (they look like springs).

comment Drawing a scattering Feynman diagram with TikZ
TeX beast! Thanks a lot! Do you know how I can get coils - as in the ones on p.95 of the TikZ documentation (see question edit)?

comment Drawing a scattering Feynman diagram with TikZ
+1 That's a nice output! For me, though, I just got a white space, with no errors.

comment Texmaker on Mac doesn't like my \section{}s
@hpesoj626 which is pretty much what I did... But whatever - it's solved now, at least to the extent that I can edit and compile, can't wait to get back to my previous set-up (PC, distribution, shortcuts etc.)

comment Texmaker on Mac doesn't like my \section{}s
@MatthewLeingang What do mean by 'trim down'? To find the error-causing lines (see answer) I kept commenting-out more and more non-vital parts to my preamble until it loaded, then I added back as much I as could until I found the precise lines that caused the fatal errors. As a side-note, I don't understand why my problem is 'too localized' - many people will swap between different distributions - especially if multiple people are working on the same document.

comment Texmaker on Mac doesn't like my \section{}s
@hpesoj626 There are no 'errors' in my code. It's a cross-platform problem/ machine issue. Given this, a MWE is not appropriate IMO. I have answered my question below for those who may have the same problem in future.

comment Texmaker on Mac doesn't like my \section{}s
@DavidCarlisle in the \section{} lines? Or elsewhere? I am trying to compile a (40 page) document that I made in Texmaker on a Windows machine, and there were no errors last time... :s

What's your actual question though?

comment Are there alternatives to nicefrac that does not shrink numerator and denominator
@egreg Er, fractional powers (used all the time in mathematics).
