comment Math symbol in section heading
WHAT? I've been using \texorpdfstring{} this whole time when I could have used pdfencoding=auto? Dammit.

comment What is the proper way to change the section title font in LaTeX?
@SeanAllred I don't use other engines, since then I'll learn features I can't use when submitting to journals. If I only ever use PDFlatex I won't have that problem.

comment How to use fancy dropcaps with PDFlatex?
Are there similar packages for other drop-caps? I just grabbed that one basically at random: What if I wanted to use Art Nouveau Initialen or Eichenlaubinitialen?

comment How to use fancy dropcaps with PDFlatex?
So in text those will be images, so searching will not pick up that word? Also, where do you get orem from? How do I look that up for each font (I just grabbed a fancy drop-cap font at random)

Sorry I took so long to respond: I forgot I'd posted it in the rush of things going on.

comment Does it matter if I use .\ in my Journal field in the bib file?
@JosephWright Oh so even in Acta Cryst. I should tie Acta and Cryst even though there is no . after Acta.

@JosephWright Ah. So I should not have removed all the .\ after David's answer.

comment Does it matter if I use .\ in my Journal field in the bib file?
@JosephWright I thought LaTeX automatically didn't put sentence spaces after periods that follow a single letter? (So J. Wright, but Dr.\ Wright?)

Time for s:.\ :. :g (Well, a notepad++ find and replace doing the same thing since I'm on windows, but you get the idea)

comment How do I get TeXStudio to stop fixing \ch to \chapter?
I finally set down and double checked this, and yes, the entire chemmacros family is loaded in TeXStudio.

comment Chemical equation in LaTeX
While all the answers using mhchem are technically correct, the chemmacros package is newer, and has a number of features that mhchem does not.

comment Set up TeXstudio to compile either a *.tex or a *.ltx file
latexmk will not autodetect ltx files, though it will compile them if you pass them the file with extensions. Can someone try autolatex? That might work but I don't have python installed.

comment What is going on with my PDFs filesize?
@egreg I'll double check, but I was pretty certain I had these uninterlaced since it increases the file size.

comment What is going on with my PDFs filesize?
@R.Schumacher Reading the answers, they mostly focus on font compression, which is obviously not the problem here.

comment What is going on with my PDFs filesize?
@R.Schumacher I would say it is not: I'm not asking how to make the PDF smaller, I'm asking why the PNGs which are only 1.5 MB larger, cause a 7 MB increase in filesize.

comment chemical reactions
As a note; This would be trivial to create with [chemmacros](https://www.ctan.org/pkg/chemmacros?lang=en) and [chemformula](https://www.ctan.org/pkg/chemformula)

comment Nice(r) rasterizing of Latex PDF documents into images?
Try saving yours at the exact same resolution as his, then scaling them to the same: Downscaling images can make them look smoother and nicer then rendering them at the final resolution. Does that improve how yours looks? The other thing I can think of (No time to test it now) is that he is using the 'minimal' document class with some of his and directly saving it as png. You could go into chat and ask him.

comment Are there any packages for knitting?
It would be great if someone would write these up with a short description so I could accept an answer.
