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 French accents not showing correctly in table of contents
I fixed it with the font package but I cannot choose the comment as the answer.

comment French accents not showing correctly in table of contents
Well I found the problem I was using \usepackage{mathpmx} with \usepackage{amsfont} just by deleting the second one it would fix the accent problem and keep the font as "Times News Roman"

Yes that works. But I have to write in Time News Roman 12pt well they said or an equivalent font... but school can be annoying about that.

comment French accents not showing correctly in table of contents
I had started it in LyX a longtime ago and then after getting a new drive in my machine, and reinstalling my OS, I switched from LyX to Texmaker and when I open my file it tells me that the encoding cannot be properly read and I have to choose one in a long list from ISO .... to UTF... I tried to create a document from scratch in TexMaker and copy paste everything but I get error and I cannot compile it.

comment French accents not showing correctly in table of contents
If I use just utf8 I have to type all accents like \'{e} and I have to write around 20 pages like that. There are too many accents to type. Besides, I get this error ! Package inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8:�de not set up for use with LaTeX.

comment How to change the caption name in the article class when using babel?
I had not seen that I was using the babel package somewhere in the preamble. Thanks a lot. I thought my problem was due to the fact that I was using the class "article" and not "amsarticle" like in the other document.

comment How to change the caption name in the article class when using babel?
I have tried \documentclass{article} \usepackage{caption} \usepackage{prettyref} \usepackage[hypcap]{caption} \newrefformat{tab}{Tableau~\ref{#1}} \newcommand{\noun}[1]{\textsc{#1}} \usepackage[labelsep=endash]{caption} \captionsetup{tablename=Tableau} and it doesn't work. It's still showing "Table"

comment Move address to the right and recipient to the left in a letter
Thanks. The class "lettre" seems to be working, I just need to find out how to use it now. Because texmaker would automatically show all environment in the class "letter".

I had never seen that error before, or at least I had never paid attention to it.

comment “No BoundingBox” error in latex
I have just tried with pdflatex I don't see the error. I thought it was something really important but apparently it's not. Thank you for the advice.

comment “No BoundingBox” error in latex
Well, I am using TexMaker and I usually compile with a "quick compilation" option. However when I add citations I have to compile in latex and I get this error. Though, it doesn't seem to change anything in the document.

comment How to align middle-align text in a parbox?
It depends on what you type, I had something else written in it and it was not vertically centered. There was more space at the top of it.

No, I didn't. I will try with it.

comment How to align middle-align text in a parbox?
Almost, I had to take off the "-2" because it would write "-2 -2" before my text.

comment Badbox overfull with figures and tables in TexMaker
I see now, some of my figure are slightly wider than they should but it's not visible without the draft option.
