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.

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.

OK I took off the french and "ucs". I use utf8x because with utf8 you have to write accents like \'eand it is kind of time consuming in french. I will try what you just told me.

comment Using \citep{} leads to “! Missing \endcsname inserted.” error
If I remove the babel package, I cannot use french quotes anymore and I get a bunch of errors linked to the fact that I am using french in the document and adding \shorthandoff{:} in my preamble didn't fix the problem.

the problem is not that the citation is not found it tells me "! Missing \endcsname inserted." by the way I will remove french babel. It's weird, I think in the previous document I wrote I used it as well and it didn't cause any error.

comment Roman number not showing with \pageref
I believe it might have simply been some compiling bug that led to this error because I copied pasted the full code again in my doculent and the pageref is working with roman numbers now.
