comment What is the status of generating LaTeX from handwriting (i.e., OCR)?
Detexify is not made for handwriting as input, but for a mouse-scribbled symbol that should look as similar to the printed symbol as possible. This is decisively different from handwriting recognition. Furthermore, Detexify isn't made for recognizing more than one symbol at once and most likely never will be, unless its purpose is changed. Saying it is "the status of generating LaTeX from handwriting" is like saying "cars are the status of flying submarines" -- they really suck at that and they'll never be good at it, unless their purpose undergoes a serious change.

comment What is the status of generating LaTeX from handwriting (i.e., OCR)?
I don't think this is a valid answer to this question. While it would be entirely unpractical if it worked, it doesn't even work: I attempted drawing an e and an E, and Detexify didn't recognize them, obviously, because it's only designed for recognizing symbols that need to be input via a special command, not by a single character.

comment Why my printnomenclature not working?
When creating a MWE, please try to make one single file, that other users can copy and compile in order to reproduce your problem. If you need more external files (e.g. because your problem actually is about external files), using filecontents* is the right way.

comment How to get header and footer over ToC, LoF and Nomeclature?
@volatNumbers These problems should be asked as separate questions (first make sure they haven't been asked via the search function). Once again, this site's purpose isn't resolving people's situations but providing answers to specific single problems, thus helping people to deal with their specific situations.

Just as an example, here's what a MWE might look like for your problem (I didn't include the nomenclature because I'm not familiar with that package): \documentclass{report} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{fancyhdr} \pagestyle{fancy} \begin{document} \tableofcontents \listoffigures \chapter{Foo} \lipsum[1] \begin{figure} Hello World \caption{My great figure} \end{figure} \end{document}

comment How to get header and footer over ToC, LoF and Nomeclature?
Thanks for your effort! I went ahead and simplified your example a bit more, just to show you what I meant. Note that there's still a lot more to take out, stuff that isn't related to your problem at all.

@RyanReich Why don't you add that as an answer? (If Marco still wants to collect libraries here, this question should probably be CW.)
