comment Two bibliographies
Two bibliographies isn't hard: Multiple bibliographies with biblatex. As for printing out the articles with a different numbering scheme and a prefix, I'm not sure yet.

comment How to work on the same LaTeX files on both Windows and MacOS X?
MacTeX is TeX Live with some extra editors and other utilities. Shouldn't be any incompatibility between the Windows and Mac versions (or Linux, for that matter). And there should be little to no difference between MiKTeX and TeX Live in terms of your own code (one might include a package the other doesn't, but should only be for rare cases).

comment When my chapter gets longer than 1 page, the page numbering will start in the top corner left
The page style of the first page of any chapter is plain. If that's the style you want applied everywhere, add \pagestyle{plain} right after \begin{document}. Adding it there enables the page style for your chapters and your ToC.

comment TexStudio and TexMaker crash due to SIGSEGV
@cfr Sure, faulty software is first, but I'd eliminated that assuming that TeXstudio didn't have any such problems. But I've also seen segfaults happen with a few memory-intensive programs, and the root cause was still memory, since other programs weren't exercising memory as intensely. Regardless, since I'm not a TeXstudio user, I could certainly be unaware of any potential faults. My Mac may be on OS X 10.10.2 as well, but I won't know for certain until tomorrow.

comment TexStudio and TexMaker crash due to SIGSEGV
The first thing I'd suspect is faulty memory. You can test that with the built-in diagnostics by restarting your Mac and holding down the D key as it restarts. Reference: Macworld: Do you have bad RAM? How to find it and how to fix it

@DavidCarlisle that's what I get for working from memory.

comment Too many Sums: “TeX capacity exceeded ”
See if \def{\sum}{\sum\limits} works. But a new command should certainly work.

comment Biber Problem in OSX: why references not compiled?
Given the lack of the MWE in what you provided, 3 questions. First, why are you hard-coding the numbered items in the References block? Second, what type of citation were you expecting in the \cite{groupWork} command? Third, any reason why the groupWork bibliography entry has no author or title? If the default citation style expects either, there could be a problem.

comment Problem with making a custom class
@Johannes_B I'm probably being dense. Not sure how \theauthor will fail if I have the titling package included, and the author's name was inserted in the page headers as needed.

comment Problem with making a custom class
@Johannes_B anything I should change in my referenced answer? Not seeing anything to do with chapter numbers there. Or is this mostly a note for heyjva?

comment hard to use interface
Comments generally don't need multiple paragraphs. However, this is more of a question for the meta site, and I've marked it for migration there.

comment Beamer video getting rasterized
Also, you're up to three questions in the space of two hours, all about the same basic topic (playing media via the media9 package), none with a usable minimal working example (MWE). If you make the smallest possible Beamer document that shows the problem, you will make it easier for others to help you.

comment how to make the same image size for 3x3 subplots
If you put the images in separate figures, are they still different heights and widths? Or if you look for a BoundingBox line in the EPS file itself? They probably are different. If you're doing any manual adjustment of figure windows in MATLAB, you'll have a hard time getting consistent figures. You might need something like setting the PaperPosition and PaperPositionMode properties to make your figures consistent.

comment Having troubles working with .png and .eps
I'd say somewhere on the order of 200-300 pixels per printed inch. A full-width image would take up most of a 1080p monitor if you made screenshots that way. You might check on superuser if you want to know how to make Excel convert a chart into a giant PNG file. Personally, I'd make figures in something that would let me easily export to EPS or PDF.

comment Having troubles working with .png and .eps
The two figures shown aren't exactly the same (different background and vertical axis labels, at least). And they're shown at different sizes onscreen in the screenshots provided. Assuming we get down to a single PNG in both documents, how large is the PNG in terms of pixels? And what size does the included PNG have in the final document (via \includegraphics for LaTeX, or via the Format Picture / Size menu in Word)? I strongly suspect that the resolution of the PNG is a bit low for printed use.
