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 Furthermore, it only deals with alte Rechtschreibung, officially outdated since 2007 (e.g. hyphenating Drucker as Druk-ker).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

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

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.
