comment Splitting one volume into two
Ah it was the '\TableOfContents' vs '\tableofcontents' thing that caught me out. Thanks!

comment Splitting one volume into two
I'm not what I'm doing wrong, but I'm getting a the full contents repeated in the second volume. However, when I copy your minimum working example in to a new script and compile, it works. I am most perplexed.

comment Splitting one volume into two
This works pretty well. However, it doesn't change the numbering system of the appendix volume. Also, after viewing the results of this method, I've decided that it would look better if the first volume has the full toc but the second appendix volume only has a toc covering the appendices in it. Are these simple fixes?

comment How do I use circuitikz package in TikzEdt?
Thanks Ted, Qrrbrbirlbel. Adding \usepackage{circuitikz} to the preamble/compiler settings worked.

comment Citation format and style in biber
@lockstep I'm not entirely sure it is a duplicate. It's only maybe a quarter duplicate since the linked question didn't give me the \&\space I needed in the first half, and didn't answer any of the second half of my question :) But I'm happy to defer to experience :)

@lockstep that seems to fix it :) Thanks. If you write it up as an answer, I'll mark it accepted :)

comment Acro package: Commas in the acronym
Well that seems to work, thanks @cgnieder. Knew it wasn't a big ask but didn't expect it to be so simple. I guess it helps when you know what you're doing ;) Do you want to write that up as an answer so I can accept it?

comment “Extra }, or forgotten \endgroup” error
Oh well, sorry I couldn't be of more help. Btw, what typesetting system and tex editor do you use? I wonder if the reason I got it to work is because I'm using MikTex and TeXnicCenter, and they are maybe configured differently or something?

comment “Extra }, or forgotten \endgroup” error
Unfortunately I don't think I have the skills to adeptly fix this issue, however in playing about, I've found that if you take out all the \tabularnewline \hline you get something that compiles with no errors. Hope this helps.

comment Acronym list won't span more than one page
Hi @Heiko, thanks for the answer. When I was choosing list styles before this was an issue, I chose tabular because it looked better - longtable was too indented for me. Is there a way to modify the list so it shifts things over to the left a bit but doesn't break acro? Thanks

Brilliant. Thanks @cgnieder!

comment Acronym upper/lower/mixed case, and pluralisation
Hi @cgnieder, all looks to be working now. Just one thing I can't work out: if I use the phrase analogue-to-digital converter, it gets represented by the acro package as Analogue-to-digital Converter instead of Analogue-to-Digital Converter. ie. the d doesn't get capitalised. Is there a way to tell the package that this letter is to be capitalised when necessary? The alternative is that I could remove the hyphens but then the 'to' gets capitalised too, and I'd then need a command to force that word specifically to be lower case. Thanks

comment Acronym upper/lower/mixed case, and pluralisation
I did read the manual and I couldn't see where it was going wrong. But after some more investigation, it seems that it was some crud left over in the .aux file and acro or TeXnicCenter wasn't changing/clearing it. Deleting the .aux seemed to sort that and it now looks like it works on a basic level. Still have a couple of questions but hopefully I'll be able to solve them by playing with the various package options. Will let you know how it goes.

comment Acronym upper/lower/mixed case, and pluralisation
I'm getting loads of errors: ! Undefined control sequence. l.38 \newacro {dc}[\AC@hyperlink{dc}{DC}]{\LU {D}{d}irect \LU {C}{c}urrent} The control sequence at the end of the top line of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have misspelled it (e.g., '\hobx'), type 'I' and the correct spelling (e.g., 'I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue, and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.

comment Biblatex/biber - no citation, bibdata, or bibstyle found in .aux file
Unfortunately it was an incredibly simple fix, spurred by @jon. TeXnicCenter was calling the wrong compiler. Doh! Thanks for the help though. @jon: The only indexing command is \makeindex which I thought I was required to have to create contents, acronym lists, etc? I take it that is nonsense?

comment Acronym upper/lower/mixed case, and pluralisation
Will do @cgnieder. Like I said, I can't remember the original reasons I gave up on acro but if I find some clangers I let you know.

comment Acronym upper/lower/mixed case, and pluralisation
Have tried using acro before but I had major issues. Unfortunately I don't document anything and my memory is appalling so I can't remember what the issues were. So I'm trying again. I think I've managed to get it to work but biblatex/biber has completely spazzed out and is preventing compilation, so once I've finished that I'll report back.

@egreg- So what now? How do I mark this question as solved/duplicate/whatever? :)
