I'm a Mathematician working as a Staff Tutor at the Open University in Cardiff, Wales.

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 List of glossaries not displaying
+1 note that you can simply use glsaddall instead of manually using \gls for all of the different entries; also, there is the makeglossaries script which is (afaik) a shortcut for the makeindex command you gave. there's also arara, which can help :)

comment How to make this table fit on a portrait A4 page?
beautiful (as always) :) the only thing that might improve things is to use a decimal alignment column on the last two columns, something like S from siunitx

comment How can I use \psgraph with polar axes?
How come you want to use psgraph? Is it so that you can specify the width and height? I'm interested because I have another solution (if that's the case)...

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 :)
