comment Formatting of captions with memoir
@AndrewCashner Not quite true, the caption package can do much more that what the memoir interface offers.

@Tobi I'll have to look it up (not at a pc at the moment). Multiple file docs are just where you include parts of the doc using \input or \include

@Tobi it would be interesting to know if texstudio could handle that feature being enabled.

@Tobi texmaker can also report the file as long as that feature is not enabled. It was just an example of how problematic/fragile the relying on editors being able to parse and report the log, actually is

comment Make warnings more obvious
@Tobi Say you have a multi file doc and there is an error in chap3.tex line 6. Usually the log will say there is an error in line 6 and you'll need to look around to find out which file has the problem (look for ./chap3.tex). TeXLive has a setting that prefixes all errors with the name of the file in which the error occurred. If you enable that feature, texmaker can no longer parse the log file (emacs+auctex has no issues with it as far as I remember)

@Tobi have you ever asked latex to write the file name before the error msg (to make it easier to read for humans), then texmaker can longer parse the errors #notimpressed

And how exactly do you expect others to help if they do not have access to something we can compile and test. Isn't the class file downloadable from somewhere?

comment ShareLatex and Texmaker
Btw how is the nomenclature made? Some constructions require you to run external programmes, something texmaker does not do by default

Have you installed all necessary packages for the code to run? Miktex often installs a small subset and installs the rest om the fly.

Btw could we see the file that the firm is complaining about (via private email), I'm very curious to see this file.

If you are unlucky, then just opening a pdf using preview, changes the PDF. It should not happen, but worth checking. On the Mac, in a terminal, you should be able to run md5sum fil.pdf or similar, in order to get a signature to see if the file was changed, do it after each step and note the resulting her numbers. FYI I haven't tested to see if Mac OSX include the md5sum command or the equivalent sha1sum

Btw: how can they see if it was created by quartz? If it say so in the pdf properties then it might be something in the Adobe tool chain.

comment pdflatex and commercial book printing
How does quartz even get involved if you are using Adobe, is it still adding things through a quartz filter? Are you at any point using preview, because that thing has caused us problems. Just opening a pdf in preview and saving it caused the pdf to be altered and things like the horizontal lines in fractions and sqrts disappeared.

Ah, look at \arrow[r]{\iota} notice a difference with the others? The braces! Double {} not [] {}

Please provide a full minimal example, including preamble and document class. Also if you indents each line with 4 or more spaces the pasted source code looks a lot nicer
