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 TexMaker - “File not found” when viewing as pdf
I fixed the problem. I have no idea how. I tried compiling in Latex, pdflatex etc. In the end it created a pdf output when I compiled in Xelatex.

comment TexMaker - “File not found” when viewing as pdf
I have the same problem. I tried opening my tex file in another latex compiling software (Texshop) and it is still not producing a pdf.

comment Add picture's caption in left margin in refman class
The thing is that the image will be aligned from the baseline not from top and if I use the figure environment in marginlabel it triggers an error.

This is perfect. Do you happen to know if using a similar syntax I could put a small image in the left margin?

comment Add text before “part” number in table of contents
It shows "partie" in my ToC but it is not capitalized and I would like to change it to "Partie" is this possible? I would also like to change the way parts tittle are formatted. I could do that with \renewcommand but it is not working with parts.

yes I want it to appear in the ToC. When I use the same code for sections, subsections, sub subsections andn paragraphs it works fine.

comment How to copy/paste from Word to LaTeX avoiding error?
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...

They are still gone. I also tried \usepackage{mathptmx}. With this \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[combine]{ucs} \usepackage[francais]{babel} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{lmodern} \usepackage{mathptmx}

I was using \usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc} it works fine when I type from scratch but I get the following error ! Package ucs Error: Please activate option 'combine'. when I copy and paste.

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.

comment Using \citep{} leads to “! Missing \endcsname inserted.” error
Usually when I do with "utf8" only it triggers some error and I have to place \'e

comment Using \citep{} leads to “! Missing \endcsname inserted.” error
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.

comment Using \citep{} leads to “! Missing \endcsname inserted.” error
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.

comment Roman number not showing with \pageref
I don't know what I should copy/paste here because I have a huge preamble and I do not know which one is related to the page numbering except the \pagenumbering I wrote.
