I'm a (British) Mathematician working at a Community College in the beautiful Portland, Oregon.

I use LaTeX for all of my documents- exams, handouts, etc.

I've been a LaTeX enthusiast for a number of years, but have only recently started to learn about the internals. I have a lot to learn- this site has taught me a lot and I'm looking forward to learning more.

I'm also the author of latexindent.pl available on ctan: http://www.ctan.org/pkg/latexindent

comment How to move titles in TOC due to special numbering?
Welcome to the site! It would be great if you could provide a small, complete MWE that demonstrates the problem. To get one, make a copy of your file, and then strip it down successively until you have some code that reproduces the problem; once you have that, please add it to your question. Welcome!

comment arara + Biber: Find .bib files in different folder
if you use \addbibresource{<path to bib>/mybib.bib} then you can just run arara: biber without any options (at least, I was able to when constructing a MWE). btw, welcome to the site!

comment Unary plus with numbers?
@Werner have you seen the column specification? it seems to add \( and then \) around each entry. To the OP: if you load lmodern before fourier it seems to resolve the issue

comment Keep float out of a environment (for example definitions)
you can use a combination of the flafter package and \FloatBarrier from the placeins package. this kind of thing has been asked in a few other questions, but don't worry, it can be hard to find when you're not sure what to search for :)

comment Presentations that don't take up too much time to create
One specific approach of the general idea mentioned by @Werner is to use xml. From here you can run it through an xslt process to get various different outputs. You can find a complete MWE and demonstration of the idea here, for example: github.com/rbeezer/mathbook

comment Arara and latexindent with texmaker
Welcome to the site! (As the author of latexindent) It's good that latexindent.exe works as expected from the command line; are you using the arara rule, indent.yaml, given on ctan? ctan.org/tex-archive/support/latexindent .

comment Problem listing more than 100 images in index
perhaps Adjusting spaces for the ToC and the links within will provide a starting point. In fact, List of figures: numbers overlap image caption looks like a duplicate ....
