comment XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX: which is faster?
If the answer from topskip is still valid, the answer seems to be that LuaTeX may be many times slower - unless, perhaps, you use few and simple fonts with few features. @Werner: do you know if that answer is still current?

comment how to get “appendices” vertically centered?
That's what was confusing me. You are probably right.

Oh. Horizontally centred?

comment how to get “appendices” vertically centered?
What do you want it to be vertically centred in relation to? Do you want it to be on a page of its own so that the first appendix starts on a new page?

Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

comment Missing *.sty files when running \tikzexternalize[mode=list and make]
I have edited your English a little to help make your question clearer. Please feel free to undo anything which you feel misrepresents your intended meaning. (I tried to be quite conservative but I also tried to rewrite things which didn't really make sense.)

comment Is it possible to produce a PDF with un-copyable text?
@FrederickNord I am not sure that turnitin will permit you to upload documents unless it can digest them. At least, by default, it tries not to allow this. (But I haven't tried with a PDF which is an image.) The reason for this is that obviously it cannot then check the work for plagiarism. (So there isn't much point in using it if students are allowed to upload document formats it can't digest since any canny plagiarist will ensure they upload indigestible work.)

But is there any reason to not specify the argument explicitly as I do?

comment Consistent typography
(+1) Is there any reason to do that rather than e.g. \newcommand*{\term}[1]{\textsf{#1}} which is what I have been using, I think?

comment Consistent typography
Is it really correct that you want the ellipsis centred between two words? Intuitively, I would have expected it to have slightly greater space on the right, although I'm not sure why.

I always write red, yellow etc\@. These colours... and Red, yellow etc.\ are colours... because I can never remember whether LaTeX treats etc. specially or whether I need to do so!

comment Aligning right parenthesis vertically in a multiple-choice test
Or enumitem for control over enumerations if you just want something simple. Don't use commands such as \bf, though, they are deprecated (from LaTeX 2.09!). Use e.g. \bfseries (or \textbf{}) instead.

@dcmst Good. So we just wait for enough people to agree. (I would have just up-voted your comment but I've run out of votes, it seems.)

comment Problems installing custom beamer style on Mac
You should NOT put it under /usr/local/texlive/2013/ as that should be reserved for the TeX distribution. (The reason it doesn't work is because TeX relies on a database of hashed names to find things in that directory.) You have two options. One is your personal texmf tree. The other is /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/ [note that this is NOT under a directory named for a year]. The first is easier. Try <your home directory>/Library/texmf/tex/latex/beamer/themes/. Note that you should NOT use /Library. You want to use <your home>/Library/.

comment Itemize symbol in beamer using textcomp package
I think this would be best closed as a duplicate unless @dcmst or you think otherwise. Duplicates are much harder to find before a question is asked. I don't know why but there it is. In this case, the duplicate showed up on the right automatically in the list. But I know that trying to find questions before asking is like searching for a needle in a haystack. I don't know why the disparity!
