comment Break on special characters in inline verbatim
Pandoc can use fancyvrb and also lets you specify your own TeX template (#14 at Pandoc - Demos, so I'm not sure why it's using \texttt for inline code anyway.

comment tables without tabular?
The \VTGN{} command may have excess white space in it. See What is the use of percent signs (%) at the end of lines? for how you might fix that. TikZ may be the answer to your need to write texts at particular coordinates: see TeXample.net for ideas there.

comment Error using epstopdf package
Related: Wireshark doesn't start after upgrading to Mac OS X Yosemite -- Assuming you installed XQuartz and then Yosemite, XQuartz moved X11 from /usr to /opt, and made a symbolic link. Yosemite blew away the link. Reinstalling XQuartz may fix it.

Your image worked for me. So it doesn't appear to be the image. I assume that (for some unknown reason) you won't be able to build with the image from the MWE package. In your other conversation, one difference between our systems is that I've never installed XQuartz on this system at all.

I'll grab that image shortly. In the meantime, does my MWE work on your system? Mine's also Yosemite and MacTeX 2014. If my document works as is, then try your image in my document. That should narrow it down to either your image or your TeX installation.

comment How to draw flow lines on tabular?
Related: How can I draw paths in Karnaugh maps? and other Karnaugh-related questions and answers. An example image of the effect you're looking for, or a MWE of what you have already would help people figure out how best to help.

graphicx, not graphics. Should work either way, though.

Could be shell-escape, certainly. I've not used the Sublime Text tools at all, so try a minimal document using TeXshop (something like \documentclass{article} \usepackage{graphics,mwe} \begin{document}\includegraphics{example-image-a}\end{document} ) and then with your own EPS instead of an MWE graphic. If it works in TeXshop but not in Sublime, it's a problem with your editor.

comment Beamer and Bibentry
The first edit isn't a minimal example yet. Please start by commenting out (and then removing) extra commands from the preamble, changing the bibliography style to something standard, and using a filecontents environment to show what goes in a single-item file the \bibitem is included from. It appears that the \newblock commands are responsible for the breaks, but no idea where a hyperlink would come from, or what it points to. As you make each change, see if the problem persists on recompiles. Eventually, you'll have a block of code that is much easier to analyze and test.

comment I'm trying to change the header of the Table of Contents and List of Figures, but I can't
Possibly related: \addtocontents at end of document not getting written to .toc file? -- that was when I was trying to get various page styles attached to front matter lists.

comment More doubt about how to create nomenclature using TeXnicCenter?
Aside (possibly) from a missing closing quote on Kurt's screenshot, his method should work. Start with the document in Figure 1 of the nomencl documentation to eliminate anything wrong in your own document.

comment PDFs want to scale down
The 94% scaling is a function of your printer's margins. Adobe Reader sees an A4 (or US letter, or whatever) page size and wants to fit that page size into the printable area on the sheet (inside the margins). So if you know you have an A4 page with acceptable margins for the printer, just remove any scaling.
