comment Make hyperref links open in new browser window for easier navigation
@BlackMagic Feel free to edit the title again! I just felt like it was very unspecific the way it was and we usually prefer titles that give you a good idea of the question just on their own. It might suffice to just change “links” to “link to other PDF files”? (However, there’s no need to make the question title fit the answer. If you didn’t know of the limitation you’re mentioning beforehand (not sure if that was the case), it doesn’t have to be in the title.)

comment Error when using selnolig and lua-check-hyphen: attempt to index global 'debug' (a boolean value)
In terms of order, I’d hope that the hyphenation-list is created after the ligatures are removed, in the presumably rare case the de-ligaturization results in different hyphenation.

comment Error when using selnolig and lua-check-hyphen: attempt to index global 'debug' (a boolean value)
@cfr You’re right, if it turns out that things are exactly the way they should be, then the obligatory loading order is the answer (and should probably be put in the respective documentations). I guess I’m expecting/hoping for there to be a solution that would lead to a change in one of the packages and make the loading order irrelevant. Btw, (Mico’s) selnolig suppresses unwanted ligatures at morpheme boundaries, and (Patrick’s/topskip’s) lua-check-hyphen creates an auxiliary file with all hyphenated words in your document. I use both for the final compilation.

comment Someone can help me draw this
@ClaudioFiandrino I know this is sort of policy here, and I’m not entirely opposed to it, but now this leaves this question of questionable quality with a score of +3, which seems undeserved to me. Not sure how to handle issues like this, though.

comment How to get abbreviations of the bibliography into the list of shorthands?
Thanks for adding that functionality! It seems like we can discard the clause about the DEV versions – I can compile your MWE using the current CTAN versions without any problems.

comment German dashes: VR-Technik und --Methoden
The second source doesn’t seem too reliable after all: It lists \3 as a macro yielding a sharp s ß, which not only doesn’t work, but also doesn’t even make sense since macros can’t contain numbers iirc. Furthermore, it only deals with alte Rechtschreibung, officially outdated since 2007 (e.g. hyphenating Drucker as Druk-ker). As a concise resource for German micro-typography (in this case, punctation), I recommend typokurz, which covers hyphen & friends in section 2.
