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 Furthermore, it only deals with alte Rechtschreibung, officially outdated since 2007 (e.g. hyphenating Drucker as Druk-ker).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.

comment My table is larger than the text box and I want to make it smaller
This question is very similar to tex.stackexchange.com/questions/10863/…. Please take a look at it 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 Special Currency Character
Welcome to tex.sx! If you’re referring to the Unicode symbol ₪, you can simply use that symbol, compiling with XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX, together with fontspec and a font that supports this symbol, e.g. Arial or Times on a Windows machine.

comment How to automatically embed cited PDF reports to a document?
This works nicely as a proof-of-concept. If I actually wanted to use it, I would need to think about a) getting it to work with the way JabRef specifies the file path and b) avoiding having a file embedded twice if the citation style uses the full entry for the first citation (this would probably result in having the field differentiate between citations and the bibliography). This isn’t meant as criticism, though, but rather as notes to myself and anybody else using this code.

comment Customize auto-completion in Texmaker
@HoseynHeydari Unfortunately, I don’t use TeXworks, so I won’t be able to help you here. If you’re looking for a better answer, you could put a bounty on your question, pointing at this answer as a model, if you like.

comment Save fillable forms
@Canageek I agree, but I haven’t gotten around to surveying alternatives, and I think if you just click “No, I don’t want anything else with that” often enough during the installation, you actually only get PDFCreator.

comment Change “user-shortcut” in Texmaker
You’d create a user macro with this text (which can also contain scripting elements), then go into the settings, shortcuts, and assign that macro just about any keyboard shortcut you want. It’s pretty straightforward.

comment Change “user-shortcut” in Texmaker
I’m quite sure that this used to be the case when I used Texmaker, but at the moment I don’t even have the current version installed, so I can’t be sure. Perhaps a current Texmaker user will come across this question, or even the maintainer.

comment Change “user-shortcut” in Texmaker
I stopped using Texmaker a while ago, but If I remember correctly, this isn’t possible. In fact, the maintainer even turned down a feature request I made specifically about changing the shortcuts for user commands. I ended up switching to TeXstudio, which originally was based on Texmaker and allows you to assign shortcuts any way you please.

comment What symbol is this?
Welcome to tex.sx! Where did you see this symbol, what does it mean, what field of study does it belong to?

comment When and why should I use % !TEX TS-program and % !TEX encoding?
@polemon In TeXstudio, you can choose View⇒Highlighting, but I think it won’t remember this setting for a file. Your idea sounds reasonable, so why don’t you go ahead and make a feature request? :)

comment Using Greek symbols in section title
Welcome! Depending on what exactly you want (plain section title, + toc, + hyperref), one of the following questions probably contains a solution for you: tex.stackexchange.com/q/5314, tex.stackexchange.com/q/77657, tex.stackexchange.com/q/134236. Please take a look at them 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 TeXstudio: Can a script read its trigger?
Welcome to tex.sx! It’s great that you’re sharing your solution here, and it would be even better if you posted it as (another) answer instead of leaving it in the question. We like to keep problems and solutions separate like that. You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format.

comment Is it possible to alt+space instead of ~ to produce a non-breaking space in LaTeX on osx?
@morbusg The Neo Layout includes a thin non-breakable space in its sixth layer, but that’s not quite a “default” layout.

comment Is it possible to alt+space instead of ~ to produce a non-breaking space in LaTeX on osx?
@Sverre One might argue that a good editor/word processor should display special spaces in a special way. I don’t know if this is commonly done, however. TeXstudio, Texmaker, TeXworks and TeXnicCenter don’t seem to.

comment How do I restrict delta here?
@DavidCarlisle That’s because we don’t have migration paths set up. I tried to get some a while ago, but the process never really went through. See meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/2411/… (and meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/2454/…). Seeing the relatively low number of questions migrated away (10k users only), I’m not sure if we really need them, but I’d still be up for giving it another shot.

comment Why are checkboxes always checked, regardless of default or configuration?
Compiling with MiKTeX 2.9 and viewing with Adobe Reader 11 on Win7, both are unchecked.

comment How to change LaTeX Font Style?
@Jörg The second one is definitely not CM, compare e, T, or any of the digits. @ KillaKem, please post the code you’re using to produce the second example.
