comment How to wrap lines in a bulleted list correctly
The one on the right is the default. So you need to show code for how you made the list.

comment How to wrap lines in a bulleted list correctly
So you want the pattern on the left image not the right image?

comment Right-to-left interlinear translation, multiple words for one translation
I tried that too, and it didn't work; I'm not quite sure why.

comment Right-to-left interlinear translation, multiple words for one translation
If I remove the everyglc=\englishfont then the text comes out RTL. Are you sure in your actual document you have specified \englishfont for everyglc?

When I compile your example, the English words are LTR as you want them.

comment How do insert a pdf or excel spreadsheet neatly?
But really you should probably not format tables in Excel but use LaTeX to do them. If you save the unformatted Excel data as a CSV file you can easily import it and format it using pgfplotstable. See How typeset a numeric table from a CSV file and also also Comprehensive list of tools that simplify the generation of LaTeX tables and

Just put the \includegraphics command inside a {table} environment.

comment How do insert a pdf or excel spreadsheet neatly?
When you insert a pdf using \includepdf you are inserting a page not an image. So if you want to insert the PDF as part of your document like an image, use \includegraphics from the graphicx package. Then the page will be a regular page of your document, and will be numbered correctly also.

comment How to automatically handle “a” and “an” in front of acronyms with the glossaries package?
Since the text you want to change has nothing to do with the acronym itself, but the word before it, wouldn't you need some sort of \indef macro whose form depends on the following \ac macro?

comment How to have \psframe working with LuaLatex?
The simple answer is that you can't use PSTricks with LuaTeX. There are some ways around this; see the linked duplicate for details.

comment TeXShop compilation issue on Mac OS El Capitan. Complete uninstallation and re-installation did not fix the problem
@daleif Yes, it's part of TeXLive and therefore part of MacTeX. The issue doesn't have anything to do with this script.

comment TeXShop compilation issue on Mac OS El Capitan. Complete uninstallation and re-installation did not fix the problem
The problem is that in your Path settings (the first box in your settings image) you have put /Library/TeX/texbin/pdftex but this is incorrect. It should be simply /Library/TeX/texbin

@daleif It's part of the TeXLive distribution. It does latex+dvips+ps2pdf in one shot.

comment Using 2 citation call-out formats within the same article
See What is the relationship between natbib, apacite package, and apa document class? for a detailed explanation with respect to the APA style.

comment Using 2 citation call-out formats within the same article
This is a standard pattern, and natbib provides two citation commands for it: \citet which yields Name (xxxx) and \citep which yields (Name, xxxx). biblatex has similar facilities with its \textcite and \parencite.

comment After migration to MacOSX 10.11 “El Capitan”, how to run simple utilities such as “texdoc” and “kpsewhich”?
@mico Ok. My machines typically have multiple users, so I prefer not to have per user profiles for stuff that should be available to all users. I removed the old code that was in /etc/profile and replaced it with eval $(/usr/libexec/path_helper -s) within the whoami != "root" conditional.

@mico Did you ever solve this problem? I just updated to El Capitan and had the same problem which turned out to be an old path in /etc/profile.

comment I want a double space between my paragraphs
@PhilosophicalPhysics 1.5em is (roughly) 1.5 times the width of an 'm' in the current font, so 15pt in a 10pt font. (The notion of a "double space" isn't very clear with any proportional spaced font.) It's what the standard paragraph indent is set to in the standard classes. See Which measurement units should one use in LaTeX? and What are the various units (ex, em, in, pt, bp, dd, pc) expressed in mm? for more details. \kant[1-2] just produces the first 2 paragraphs of the kantlipsum dummy text.

comment Software which compiles scripts automatically
BaKoMa TeX is not free but is otherwise good, from what I understand. I don't know how up-to-date it is with respect to packages. LyX is not directly LaTeX but uses LaTeX behind the scenes and can export LaTeX documents. Most of us here don't use either of them, but instead just compile manually when we need to. See Real Time LaTeX?. Your question is a duplicate of this.

comment Software which compiles scripts automatically
BaKoMa TeX does on-the-fly compilation. Or you could use LyX. Otherwise, no, there are no means of automatic compiling. Maybe I've misunderstood your question. Are you talking about compiling sample documents here on the site? Or automatically compiling your own documents as you write them?
