comment Simplify LaTeX document to satisfy editing office
Well, they weren't specific about what problems they had with the packages. They do not forbid packages overall... I've removed by '\newcommand' issues (which was easy by text-and-replace) and hope it will be fine now, or I should ask for details.

comment What are the most common mistakes that beginners of (La)TeX and Friends make?
I think this is true in particular for users of Tex Stack Exchange. For others, perhaps not so much.

What's wrong with writing \"u, \aa, etc.? Does it produce an incorrect result?

Can you elaborate on point 8? When/why/how should I capitalise BibTeX titles — doesn't bibtex/biber take care of capitalisation?

Using version control does not replace making backups.

comment Komascript style for empty page after page with `\part` title, or how to get page numbers there cleanly
I want a page number even on otherwise empty pages, because for me, a page number does not only serve as an anchor for the same page, but also assists when a reader is looking for a particular page number. When I'm browsing looking for page 16, and pages 14 and 18 are empty without any page numbers, that could make it a little bit more involved to find page 16.

comment How to cite data?
Well, in this case those are not written documents at all. But perhaps that doesn't matter.

comment Ignoring an acronym that is only used once
This appears to fail if I use glossary entries that are not acronyms: Package etoolbox Error: Boolean '\ifglo@collocation@usedonlyonce' undefined. where collocation is a glossary entry, but not an acronym.

comment ylabel style when axis y line=right
I see. The documentation, The starred versions (...) only affect the axis lines, without correcting the positions of axis labels, confused me; I thought not affecting the positions of axis labels would mean that the y line would move to the right, but the ylabel would remain on the left; which would be silly (but who knows why someone might want that), but that's not what it does

comment ylabel style when axis y line=right
Aha. I see now that it also appears to have the side effect of adding an arrow tip and changing the tick position.

comment What to do to switch to biblatex?
From the manual: For a quick start guide, browse §§ 1.1, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 3.1, 3.3, 3.6, 3.7, 3.11.. That's still almost 90 pages.
