comment Is there a parenthesis code that work in all contexts and arguments?
AFAIR nath did an OK job. But it is incompatible with a lot of stuff and have redefine most math. So I agree with Mico, it takes experience to know what is best. In general, don't use autoscaling too much it often ends up overpowering an expression or (if used within normal text) disturbs line spacing

comment What's wrong with my newcommand?
The argument to \endexer goes in {}. But rather sake of code readability I'd recommend making this as environments instead. It gives the code a better structure

comment Troubles with dcolumn package - how to use underscores?
you might want to look at siunitx and its table formatting instead. It is much more advanced than dcolumn (which though have its use from time to time). Regarding Davids first comment: remember this is a headline, these have to be handled specially, e.g. with \multicolumn

comment Why do I always have to xelatex twice to make references work properly?
How should know what to write to the aux file other than (xe)LaTeX it self? Remember you cannot compare LaTeX to modern systems. Latex is a much different beast, basically the only program that 100% knows how to interpret LaTeX code is LaTeX it self. For example, consider listings here the label is given as a key-value pair. How should a preprocessor know this? It cannot in all cases.

@user15964, imagine the label is on page 10 but the reference is on page 5, how is the reference going to know about the label data on page 10? Note that once the reference is in the aux file, you don't have to compile twice? It is only when new references are introduced or if one label changes to a new page.

comment Latex why can't I have bibliography
(1) Welcome. (2) You do not need any bibliography? Exactly which editor are you using? I've seen some that automatically runs bibtex even if the user does not use it.

That is usually how references work. They are written to an external file that has to be reevaluated (i.e. read in again on the second pass). Are you by any chance deleting your .aux files?

comment Latex Beamer does not compile letters in math mode
No problem here either (using TL14 frozen). Does it make any difference if you use \begin{frame} ... \end{frame} instead?

BTW: I'm going to change the tags on this question as it is not language related.

TeXMaker should be able to detect the encoding of an existing file and open it in that encoding. But new files are made in UTF8, which might not be the same as your master document (the one with the preamble). That is why we usually recommend exclusively working in UTF8

Update your question with a full minimal example. You still have not provided anything the rest of us can copy and compile on our own systems. Are all the input files in the same encoding? This is usually listed in the bottom left corner of TeXMaker.

Then please update your question with extra information about your document, which editor you're using etc.

You should not add stuff like that in a comment, rather edit the question and add it. In this case, try replacing [latin1] by [utf8].

(1) Welcome, (2) from the image this looks more like an inout encoding problem than a language/french problem. Seems you have a text in UTF8, but your document thinks it is, say, latin1.
