comment Why is my table rendering in a nonsensical place?
For the full explanation see How to influence the position of float environments like figure and table in LaTeX?. For the solution, do what @HarishKumar said. See also Keeping tables/figures close to where they are mentioned.

comment How to author and year in italics
Hi, you've now asked three questions without getting any answers. Part of the problem is that you really need to add some code to show us what you are doing. This is called a Minimal Working Example. For how to construct one generally, see I've just been asked to write a minimal example, what is that?. For bibliography questions, this question is also useful: How to write a MWEB (Minimal working example with Bibliography)?

comment Creating a List of Theorems divided into Subsections with amsthm
Also, your theorem style is not really pertinent to the problem (colour etc.) so you could also simplify the code a bit too.

comment Creating a List of Theorems divided into Subsections with amsthm
Hi, can you complete your code to make a small but complete document, including \documentclass and \begin{document} ... \end{document} with at least a dummy chapter and section.Then it will be easier for people to play with it and help you.

comment Double hard carriage return does not generate indented paragraph after pasting text from Word. Any tips or workarounds?
I can't reproduce this behaviour (Word for Mac). Can you paste the code into a plain text editor that can show the invisible characters? If you take just two paragraphs from your main document that look like they have a blank line in the source and paste it into a brand new document, does it come out as two paragraphs or one? If one, then post that minimal document here.

comment What packages help with typesetting settings specific to religious books?
@sdegutis yes your question was clear but as I mentioned in my answer the standard heading for \book in memoir makes a new page. But this can be can be changed. I just wanted to show what you can do already with the class.

comment What packages help with typesetting settings specific to religious books?
You probably don't need part since there is nothing in a bible that corresponds to a part I think. So don't use it. :)

comment What packages help with typesetting settings specific to religious books?
For that I would just use the regular sectioning commands since bibles typically don't have sections. For example in §6.6 there's an example of how to set a heading in the margin. Rather than focus on the terms think of the logical components of the document.

Look at Chapter 6 of the memoir manual. memoir has \book, \part and \chapter divisions. So all you need to do is define their format as you want.

comment What packages help with typesetting settings specific to religious books?
If you're already using memoir I think you have everything you need to replicate this kind of style. If you're having trouble with particular aspects of the formatting, create a minimal document that shows what you are doing and I'm sure people can help you.

comment How to add pdf photo to LaTex?
@sifo No, you still use \includegraphics to insert your file, but you create a cropped version of the original file beforehand using the pdfcrop program. You use that program from the command line. It's not part of your TeX document. What OS and TeX distribution are you using?

comment How to add pdf photo to LaTex?
@MarcvanDongen The pdfcrop method is much simpler since you don't have to do any measuring of how much to trim. pdfcrop crops to the natural size of the content automatically.

comment Multiple publishers and locations with biber/biblatex
@tomasz Is this a question about how to get biblatex to do this, or a question about what the "correct" form is for formatting? If it's the latter, the question is off topic, since what counts as "correct" is dependent on your field and more specifically the journal or press style that is required. If you want a generic way to do this that is clear and understandable, then the second way is better: it keeps publisher information separated from location, and will allow them each to be placed in the right place by different styles. Mixing them in the publisher field will screw this up.

comment Multiple publishers and locations with biber/biblatex
If you really need to do this, the simplest way is to just put the two locations in the location field separated by 'and' and do the same for the publisher. In authoryear style, this will be printed as "Location A and Location B: Publisher A and Publisher B" which is perfectly clear.

comment I can't generate a bib document on texworks
You should have two files: your .tex file, and your .bib file. The .bib file will contain the bib items like the one you show, and given your example, it should be called biblio.bib. Delete your .aux files and then run latex, bibtex, latex, latex to compile the .tex document and generate the bibliography (you also need some \cite{} commands in your document. Does that work with a simple document?

comment List of Boxes in Table of Contents
@VRL I've added the memoir solution. It would have helped to have mentioned that at the outset.

comment apacite with [natbibapa] fails to line-break authors' names in citation callouts when author name has umlaut
This is because TeX doesn't know how do hyphenate words with accents in the default OT1 encoding. Just add \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} and it will work. See Why words with accented characters can't be automatic hyphenated with the default OT1 enconding?.

comment How to use phonetic IPA characters in LaTeX
@smihael Not that I know of. Why would you want to go in that direction? If you're entering IPA you might as well use XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX and not use TIPA at all.

comment Repeat beamer frames and R chunk
Hi, can you simplify your example somewhat to make it more minimal? By itself this code won't run without first loading the appropriate R libraries, for example. But if the problem is general enough, then that code may not be part of the problem and you could substitute it with some simpler code. How are you processing this code, BTW?

comment Is it possible to draw a tree using standard syntax without overlapping, if graphdrawing is loaded?
@Symbol1 I think the point is more general. Adding another tikz library shouldn't in principle change code that works in a particular way without that library.
