comment Can I get a \widebar without using the mathabx package?
I tried the code together with the iwona fonts (\usepackage[math]{iwona}) and it doesn't work correctly: The bars are not shifted enough to the right, probably because the skew can not be calculated correctly.

comment Use specific non-unicode character in lualatex
Yes, there is no longer a temp-...lua mentioned in the log-file - luaotfload has dropped this prefix. But there should be quite a lot of luaotfload messages and also the name and the path of the cache file of the font. In this folder you should find .lua and .luc (packed) files. Use the .lua file to find your symbol.

comment What UTF-8 characters are valid/invalid in utf8 inputenc?
The defined characters depends on your input: by default inputenc loads ot1enc.dfu, t1enc.dfu, omsenc.dfu and XXenc.dfu for all font encodings XX you are loading with fontenc. The log-file gives you a list: defining Unicode char U+201D (decimal 8221). But this information won't help you if your input is no valid utf8 as your error message suggests.

comment Why under Texlive2014 / win8.1 terminal xelatex does not work outside the bin/win32 directory?
It doesn't need to be another xelatex, it could be another xetex, or some library used by xetex.

comment Why under Texlive2014 / win8.1 terminal xelatex does not work outside the bin/win32 directory?
Did you search for all sorts of executables? Did you check the current folder? Does your windows show hidden files? Put the texlive path to the front of your path variable: set path=C:\...;%path%. Move to another empty folder. If it works then then it is quite probably that another xelatex is in the path.

comment Why under Texlive2014 / win8.1 terminal xelatex does not work outside the bin/win32 directory?
I don't think that the path variable is the problem. If xelatex wouldn't be recognized as a command then window should complain. That xelatex silently returns to the prompt is curious. Did you try to call xelatex from other folders than users\admin too? Is there perhaps some other application with the name xelatex in your path? Did you try xelatex --help?

comment Change letter colour without losing letter spacing
Imho you will have to insert negative space between the chars manually. Btw: LetterSpace is not a length but a factor.

comment Problem to store tabulars in boxes in the preamble when colortbl is loaded
There is no math in the tables, and I actually don't save them for later typesetting, I only need the height and \geometry doesn't work in \AtBeginDocument. But you are naturally right that it is a bit risky so I made some tests and I think I can save the boxes in \AfterEndPreamble (from etoolbox) and use \newgeometry there instead of \geometry. This looks saner - even if the other code worked.

comment Problem to store tabulars in boxes in the preamble when colortbl is loaded
Well as I wrote I need the box to calculate the page geometry (and I'm calling the fonts before storing the box) and I don't want to put everything in \AtBeginDocument. So I will be brave. So thank you for the code ;-). But I found the reason why only the second explodes: The first box issues at the end \CT@end whose definition is not delayed to the begin of the document.

comment Biber Problem in OSX: why references not compiled?
The bold groupWork is a cite command which hasn't been resolved yet - either because you didn't run biber, or because biber gave an error or because the bib entry is not in the bib-file.

comment How can I output before the final clearpage using AtEndDocument or similar?
It doesn't happen for me. The text is not on a page of its own. Make a complete example.

comment Texmaker bibtex works with \input not with \include
Sounds as if you are storing the auxiliary files in another folder. This is a constant source for problems as tools don't find the files where there expect them. You probably will have to switch to the build folder and call bibtex there (and then hope that pdflatex finds the bbl).

You could try the endfloat package to move the floats to the end.

comment Why \newlength is not profiled as \newcommand?
@egreg: Yes I wouldn't \dim_const:Nn etc for register I want to change a lot (a \dim_new:Nn would be better to declare and set in one go). Would you use a constant for a value that is changed once? First a default is set and at the begin of the document it is perhaps changed? (An example is the font size of a document).

comment OTF installation - error - files must be included entirely
The input encoding of the tex-file is irrelevant. And pdflatex can handle various font encodings. As there is not "e" and "t" in your tfm's it is improbable that your tex document is at faults. It sounds as if something did go seriously wrong during the creation of all the helper files.
