comment Undefined Control Sequences
revised debugging tip: put \bye at the point where the errors start occurring. this is the eplain equivalent of latex's \end{document}. otherwise, the suggestions by @R.Schumacher regarding navigating through the problem area are good.

comment sequence of bibliography items getting ramdomly altered
the plain bibliography style, which you're using, will sort the bibliography entries by author and then by year. a method to achieve the order you want is addressed in nocite{*} and unsrt.

comment sequence of bibliography items getting ramdomly altered
welcome to tex.sx. are you specifying a \bibliographystyle, and if so, what is it? we really need more information to diagnose the problem. please post a full (small) example that demonstrates the problem, beginning with \documentclass and ending with \end{document}. that will enable the people here to test and experiment for themselves.

@egreg -- aha! thanks! (when i couldn't find the paper by title, i looked for the journal, and didn't find that either. your search technique is sure better than mine!)

comment BibTeX problem with math symbols
the deitmar reference definitely uses blackboard bold; just checked in mathscinet. the other reference isn't covered there.

comment Remove Automatic Indent on Chapter Title
@RyanG -- egreg is correct here. possibly easier to start drafting text with book, but when you want to polish your presentation, and have a bit more experience with latex, memoir has many more, and easier to use, facilities for reshaping the appearance. i think i'm correct in saying that the major divisioning commands in memoir match those of book (or report), so migration shouldn't be too much of a headache.

comment Remove Automatic Indent on Chapter Title
@RyanG -- add your code to the edit window, then highlight it by running your mouse over it, and then click on the {} icon above the edit window. an alternative method is to insert 4 spaces at the beginning of each line, but it's really much easier to mark the whole insert at once.

comment How to define a newcommand for this type of indexing?
@ChenStatsYu -- it would be helpful if you added into your question an example of what you would like an index entry to look like. from the present description, i was picturing something like "2.1, 37" or "A, 15:, and i'm not sure that's what you want.

comment How to define a newcommand for this type of indexing?
the way \key is defined here will result in raggedy spacing in the output, since the spaces (separated by \index{...}) are no longer consecutive, and thus not compressed by tex..also, it's possible that the page number assigned to the index term may be one greater than appropriate, in the case where the typeset #1 finishes off the last line of a page, forcing the \index to go to the next page.

comment Reprint page but smaller
there are several questions concerning the "droste effect" of self-replication. this may also be known as "ouroboros" (infinite nesting) or "quinn". it's not clear to me that any of the existing questions hold the exact answer, but searching for those terms might turn up something useful.

comment How to recover the content of my .tex file with Texstudio, windows 8!
@cfr -- point made. (my "saving" ritual usually includes making a copy as soon as the file is closed; it's so automatic now that i sometimes make rash assumptions.)

comment Linenumbering problem
welcome to tex.sx. more information is needed before anyone here would be able to diagnose the problem. try to narrow it down; something seems to be happening on the second column of the last full page, or the first one-column-only page. copy your file to another name to test. try omitting material from the earlier pages until you get just one two-column page before the problem starts. then you can substitute large empty boxes for groups of lines (leave some lines that show the numbering). what's left can then be used as a "minimal example" that people can work with.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because operating system problems are not within the scope of this forum as defined in the help center.
