I'm a mathematician working in algebra. I've been using TeX since 1987, but couldn't write my Ph.D. thesis with it. Sob!

I teach LaTeX at my university, besides the mathematics courses. I'm the author of some LaTeX packages and even of one Plain TeX package. At my site it's possible to download my book on LaTeX programming (in Italian, sorry).

Here's my motto for TeX.SX:

Pronto prontissimo son come il fulmine: sono il factotum della città. (From "Il barbiere di Siviglia", music by Gioachino Rossini, libretto by Cesare Sterbini.)

@MiB Here's the new version. Please test it. With \refstepcounter we also set the current label, which is not needed here.

comment How to change subcaption font size in Lyx?
@SS_Rebelious You can't use both subfig and subcaption. By the way, the centering environment doesn't exist; one should only say \centering.

comment Make caption look right in greek
If your document's main language is Greek, say \usepackage[english,greek]{babel}. But a minimal example is needed anyway: what's \tg, for instance?

comment Make caption look right in greek
You should be doing \usepackage[greek]{babel} rather than trying to coerce English into Greek. Can you add a minimal working example (MWE)?

comment Numeration of equations starting from 1 in each section
Note that this makes for awkward cross-references; you are forced to say ”Theorem 2 in Section 10” (in LaTeX code something like Theorem~\ref{thm:a} in Section~\ref{sec:b}) instead of the simpler “Theorem 10.2”.

comment Flush \thanks to the left margin and turn of text justification
@Sverre No, it's needed for getting the same paragraph shape with \thanks as with \footnote. I adapted the entire code from footmisc when the hang option is issued and also added \raggedright.
