comment Leporello tips?
The leaflet document class (manual) might be of help. However, it seems it only supports up to six (virtual) pages and mostly the standard LaTeX page sizes.

comment Which common LaTeX Fonts come prepackaged with specific settings for Microtype?
In order to fit the Q&A-format here better, I’d suggest separating your list off into an answer (a community wiki answer, if you’d like other users to edit and complement the list).

comment TeXstudio has no commands
+1. This kind of issue seems to be decently common, i.e. users installing TeXstudio before a TeX distribution. Would it be possible to implement something like a test so that if all the *TeX engines are <unknown> at startup, TeXstudio asks if it should do the detection again?

comment urls do not show up in in biblatex-mla Works Cited list
Thank for adding this functionality! Do you think you could update this answer (including the link) since the option has moved to the release branch?

comment Hand written fonts in LaTeX/XeTeX/LuaTeX
@sergiokapone No, unfortunately not. On the Font Catalogue, it says “As my knowledge on Greek, Cyrillic, and other alphabets is very little, I have only included fonts providing the Latin alphabet.”. If there is no question about such fonts here, you’re more than welcome to ask one!

comment Edit hyperref PDF metadata and options in external software
@JosephWright I don’t think it’s a great fit either, but since it is about pdfs – which *TeX users deal with a lot and some people here know a great lot about them – I would propose to “tolerate” it here as being about “related software and tools”, particularly because it’s just an interesting question. One might even say that pdf tools are pretty closely related to *TeX.

@CiroSantilli I agree.

comment Just for fun: Globally replace one glyph with another
Have a look at tex.stackexchange.com/questions/40828/… – I think it’s a duplicate, what do you think?

comment Header and footer not on 1st page?
Please make sure to reduce your code to the very minimum, e.g. the only package necessary to show your problem is fancyhdr (see meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228/…).

comment The text in pdf is not smooth
@Timespace7 I’m glad you found a solution! Since the underlying issue turned out to be the same as in tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1291/…, I’m voting to close this question as a duplicate. If some guide here on tex.sx that you used was missing the hint about initexmf, it’d be great if you could add it there as a comment.

comment Strange warning
Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

comment MiKTeX installation permission error
Welcome to TeX.sx! This might be the same problem as tex.stackexchange.com/questions/51799/…; @sevenkul’s answer has worked for me several times. Please take a look at that as the information there might help you. If so, that's great, and we'll probably close this question as a duplicate just to keep the place tidy and to help people find answers quickly. If not, please edit your question here to explain why so that people can better focus their attention to help you.

comment The text in pdf is not smooth
@Timespace7 Hmm, so the package manager shows that cm-super is installed, but yet \documentclass{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \begin{document} answer \end{document} produces the jagged version of CM? Then I’m afraid I’m out of ideas; but other users, who know their way around the innards of font configuration better than I do, might be able to help you.

comment The text in pdf is not smooth
@Timespace7 Did you refresh the file name database (FNDB) in the MiKTeX settings? (For good measure, I usually also update the formats in the same menu.) As for cm-super vs. lmodern, see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1390/latin-modern-vs-cm-super. lmodern certainly is a package which doesn’t do harm being loaded.

comment The text in pdf is not smooth
-1: ae and aecompl are outdated (cf. texdoc.net/texmf-dist/doc/latex/l2tabu/l2tabu.pdf 2.3.9, this section is only available in German). Instead, cm-super or lmodern should be used, in conjunction with \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}.

I’m strongly guessing you’re encountering the problem discussed at tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1291/…. Please take a look at that question as the information there might help you. If so, that's great, and we'll probably close this question as a duplicate just to keep the place tidy and to help people find answers quickly.

comment Daggers compilation PDF
@Bfrei We neither want nor need long code. Make a copy of your file that you can mess around in. Then start commenting out parts (one strategy is to always cut 50%) and compiling and see if the problem persists. Try to leave as little code as possible. For more details, see in tohecz’s (second) link.

comment Daggers compilation PDF
@Bfrei The first part of solving a problem is narrowing down the source. Producing a MWE has proven to be the best strategy for that. If it’s not the packages, the problem should still show up without any packages, right? (But to be honest, I’m not sure that will happen.) In order for us to help you – without just wildly guessing and wasting everybody’s time – it’s pretty much necessary that you create a MWE, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. Then we can try to reproduce the problem and look for its source. Have a look at tohcz’s link, it’s really helpful.
