comment Chemfig package compatibility
I just came across this error message in TeXLive 2013 due to a \DeclareMathVersion as the latex kernel used a \global\newcount in \new@mathversion. This problem has been resolved in TeXLive2014.

comment \graphicspath not working
I never used sharelatex but I would find it quite alarming if it could access files on my PC through absolute pathes.

comment Change base fontsize for rest of document
Did you get errors with my example? Or did you simply try in a large document? That's not a good idea. Start in a small document. And yes: changing the class can change the formatting. So you will have to decide if it is worth the trouble.

comment Using international accents in the whole document
You don't need xelatex or lualatex to be able to handle input like "Äöü". They work with pdflatex too. Simply add \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} (assuming that your file is utf8 encoded).

comment siunitx and summary statistics below table - separate alignment block possible?
I would then probably use \rlap{***} for the significance symbols so that they take no place and enlarge the intercolumn space.

comment \clubpenalty and \widowpenalty seem to have no impact
If you want to keep more lines together you could try \widowpenalties=3 10000 10000 150. But I wouldn't put such restrictions on the pagebreaking: It will probably bite back somewhere else.

comment Proofreading methods for LaTeX
If the supervisor is mentioned as (co-)author on your titlepage then is is naturally ok to look for tools to make the joint work easier but as long as it is your thesis and your grading you should be careful to have clear boundary between your and her work. Beside this I agree with Karl: The best proofreading is made on paper. And it is much easier to handle changes if only person has access to the source file of the paper.

comment FIles produced by compiling LaTeX source code
This question has been ask quite a lot of times here. Search for "auxiliary" and "delete" or "clean". And if you use one method: make sure that you know to stop the clean up. It is difficult to help people who can't find the log-file because some overeager editor is hiding or deleting it.

comment How do I use biblatex with Gummi?
I have no idea if gummi is a good editor. But the documentation is horrible. It doesn't mention anywhere how to configure tools and engines. I would suggest to use for the first test an editor with a decent documentation. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/154751/…. When it works there you can try to find out how (if) it works in gummi.

comment Valid names for new column type
No, it must be a token. But you can use command names, eg. \AP.

comment Figure reference doesn't work?
@KeksDose: graphicspath shouldn't affect the \label/\ref system. @Paul: The question is not if figures work but if references work at all. If yes and only this one fails then you will have to make a complete example that demonstrates the failure. You can replace confidential text and remove the \includegraphics-command.

comment Figure reference doesn't work?
From the snippet I can't see any reason why the reference should not work. Do other reference work? If yes: make a complete example. If not you are probably deleting the aux-file between compilations.
