I'm a chartered mathematician, computer scientist and book production editor. I have a number of packages on CTAN, and I write LaTeX books, illustrated children's books and crime fiction. I have a FAQ, a bug tracker and a feature request tracker for my LaTeX packages and a list of LaTeX resources.

comment Cannot select radio elements, even output is not similiar
I can confirm your issue (Fedora 19 x64, TeXLive 2014, hyperref v6.83m) using pdflatex. If I used xelatex the giant open quotes disappear but there are still no radio boxes for the second and third options. I've tried viewing the pdf with okular and evince but the result's the same. I sent a copy of the pdf to my son and it viewed correctly on Adobe Reader running on his Windows laptop. I don't know what's causing it.

Have you tried \newacronym[parent=definition]{uv}{UV}{Ultraviolet}?

comment Strange warning
There's a similar question on SO libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile but it doesn't expand any further on the other answers here.

comment Collaborative authoring of LaTeX document
SVN will let you know if there are any conflicts (for example if you've both edited the same line). See the Resolve Any Conflicts section of the svn book for further details.

comment glossaries package is printing all entries under acronyms
You've got rid of the main glossary using nomain, so you only have one glossary (the list of acronyms). Try removing nomain.

comment How can I add in the missing space when the first use of an acronym is plural?
Welcome to TeX.SX! I replaced your link with a generic CTAN mirror link. You're correct that the solution is obtained by moving the definitions to the preamble. Although the bug is now fixed, this is the better option.

This is probably related to bug report 54.

comment Missing Letters when importing .eps files from Chemdraw
If ChemDraw can't embed the fonts, another possibility may be to use epstopdf, which I think will by default embed fonts (if not, use the --embed switch). Then use pdflatex rather than latex. Alternatively perhaps try eps2eps with -dEmbedAllFonts=true.

Can you configure ChemDraw to embed the fonts in the eps?
