I have been introduced to LaTeX in 2010 by a school mate at University, in chemistry class and I really started using it in 2011/2012.

I tried all possible combination. Without ucsif I do not replace the weird characters it will trigger error. With any font I use with inputencall the accents disappear.

comment How to copy/paste from Word to LaTeX avoiding error?
This is what I usually do when I don't have too many pages and accents but now I feel like it's going to be annoying even with the "Replace All" because if I make a mistake... I am afraid I might not notice it and then everything might make no sense at all.

comment How to copy/paste from Word to LaTeX avoiding error?
Without ucsI am unable to compile anything. I get the following error: ! Package inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8:̀ not set up for use with LaTeX. Everytime I type in French, I use ucs it usually works fine, except when I copy and paste. If there were not 50 pages to edit I wouldn't bother... I guess i will end up using Word...

comment ! LaTeX Error: Not in outer par mode
I've just had the similar problem however I was not using minipage but \begin{figure} environment and the ` ! LaTeX Error: Not in outer par mode.` error was due to a missing \end{figure}. You should look through your document and see if something like \end{minipage} is not missing.
