comment Vector vs. Raster: Is there any reason to include (larger) vector images into a LaTeX document?
@Szczypawka --- Some complex images (e.g. shaded contour plots with large numbers of different regions) can be difficult to represent as vector graphics, and in those cases bitmaps may work better. However, for an image such as yours, a (decent) vector representation will give better quality and smaller size. There is no need to use a vector representation, but then there is no need to use LaTeX. You can write your document in Word and draw your diagrams using Paint.

@Jake --- that beats my 2.9K xfig version! I think the original file was created by Adobe Illustrator, which is the work of Satan.

A 147 Kb vector graphic representing that image is woefully inefficient.

Can you make the eps file available for download and add a link here?

comment Aligning the equations and equation numbers correctly
Well, 16cm is about 455pt, but \documentclass[12pt,twoside,a4paper] sets \textwidth to 390pt, so it's no wonder things overrun the margin. It's usually better to use fractions of \textwidth for minipages. Beyond that, it's hard to see exactly what you want; perhaps you could upload a picture to illustrate this.

comment Compile a paper using NSP instructions
@Johannes_B --- I didn't actually look at the code. The psfig package must have been deprecated for about 20 years!

comment EPS figures are misplaced on top of the text
1: What viewer are you using? 2: This could be a problem with the eps files themselves. Can you make Fig1.eps available for download and add a link here?

comment Simple partial derivative problem
Try putting \show\partial in the document and then compiling it. You should get a message showing the current definition of the command. What is this message?

comment File ended while scanning use of \newrgbcolorx
@Herman --- then something not shown in your example must be causing the problem. egreg's solution works (provided the missing backslash before begin{document} is inserted).

comment Reusing the same tex files in different base files
You could rename \subsubsection to \section as well if you want to. Anything is possible with TeX...

comment File ended while scanning use of \newrgbcolorx
The code that you posted does not cause the problem. Please edit your question to include an example that does reproduce the problem. Without this, it will be difficult for anyone to help you.

comment Reusing the same tex files in different base files
You could just put \renewcommand\subsection{\section} and similar redefinitions in the preamble for the excerpt.

comment Problem with controlling figure position spanning multiple columns and text columns in article template
Please post an example code that reproduces the problem. You can use a \rule in place of your image to make the code self-contained.

You know it should be \input{../folder/chapter.tex} (i.e. braces not parentheses) right?

Why not just send them the first few pages and then await payment before sending the whole thing?

comment amsmath: combine \nonumber and \label
It's always best to give an explanation; guessing the intended purpose of incorrect code is difficult at the best of times.
