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. If not, please edit your question here to explain why so that people can better focus their attention to help you.

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.

comment \'. gives error when fontspec package is used
@VafaKhalighi Could you try to come up with a more descriptive title for this question? Something that gives other users a better idea of what this question is about without having to read it. Also, I’m not sure if your name is very common or if you’ve created a bunch of duplicate accounts (see this search), but if the latter is the case, you can request having your accounts merged.

comment Is it still useful to load the lmodern package?
Related: Latin Modern vs cm-super?. My point about the German sharp s ⟨ß⟩ and accents still holds, which would be a reason to use lmodern for me.

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.
