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.)

comment How to debug LuaLaTeX no longer finding ttf font
Have you recently updated luaotfload via tlmgr? If so, do luaotfload-tool -u from the terminal. But first ensure your TeX Live is fully updated (there was a bug in an update to luaotfload that was solved a few days later).

comment Strange behaviour on redefining \contentsname
@Sigur Yes, it just appends the contents of the argument to the meaning of \captionsenglish.

Are you using babel? I guess so. Please, make a minimal example. Also look for \addto and babel.

comment How can I see the labels of equations in the pdf format?
@MartinSchröder It's better closed as duplicate. I added an answer about showlabels to the other question.

@tangshutao There is no such command in the ctexart class.

comment Removing subsection numbers in table of contents
You shouldn't use \subsection* everywhere; just say \setcounter{secnumdepth}{1} before \begin{document} and use \subsection normally. If you want the subsections in the TOC, add also \setcounter{tocdepth}{2}

Welcome to TeX.SX! Adding \usepackage{showlabels} should do.

comment How to set maintitle and subtitle?
What's the real problem? With \title{First line\\\large Second line} I get what seems a good result.

comment Different font for all headings
Welcome to TeX.SX! With the sectsty package it's easy to do what you want, but the typographic quality of the document will be low: mixing two sans serif fonts is not really a good thing. All sans serif is frowned upon by many people, either.

comment Leading zeros when cross referencing
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.
