Why do I downvote questions?

In the last time questions of the just do it for me kind came up more and more on this site and I believe that they have only few or no benefit for this site. I decided to deals with it by downvoting questions that only post the desired result without showing any efforts by the OP.

Text building blocks

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at [our starter guide](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/1436) to familiarize yourself further with our format.
  • Please do us a favour and change your username to something more telling than “user1234”.
  • [Welcome to TeX.SX!](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/1436) Please add a [minimal working example (MWE)](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/228) 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}.
  • [Welcome to TeX.SX](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/1436). Questions about how to draw specific graphics that just post an image of the desired result are really not reasonable questions to ask on the site. Please post a minimal compilable document showing that you've tried to produce the image and then people will be happy to help you with any specific problems you may have. See [minimal working example (MWE)](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/228) for what needs to go into such a document.
  • Maybe worth a look: [Why should the minimal class be avoided?](http://tex.stackexchange.com/q/42114/4918).

comment Place label in middle of line with TikZ
As the manual says, if you use fill “the area enclosed by the path is filled with the current filling color, which is either the last color set using the general color= option or the optional color ⟨color⟩.” (p. 161) So in you case the last set color wins and overwrites the setting of fill.

comment Can you translate utf8 file to ascii with non-ascii characters replaced by tex-macro?
Note that \bibliography is obsolete and replaced by \addbibresource{Bibfile.bib} (mandatory suffix) (cf. manual, sec. 3.5.1).

comment Problem to print a pdf
Acrobat Pro says that the PDF uses object compression and has no title and no TrimBox for that it’s not PDF/X-1a compatible. But I can’t comment, interpret or say more about this output. If it helps I’ll post the full preflight report as an answer.

comment Set music in LaTeX with ABC or LilyPond?
@71GA: (As far as I remeber …) You don’t need a package but you must precompile the document with lilypond-book before you can process it with pdflatex. The precompiling looks for the {lilypond} environment. Crates the score as an image and replaces the environment in the precomiled tex file with commands to include the image. Just process the above example to see how it works.

@UmNyobe: I added a command to draw the things. You surely find a better name that \autodraw for it ;-)

@UmNyobe: Yes TikZ is very powerful and can do even more complex things like this. It’s a user level layer of PGF which was created to do graphics. Have a look at the pgfmanual, which includes some great tutorials to learn TikZ.
