As you can assume, English is not my natural language. Apologies in advance, if it is bad and poor, and please be indulgent.

Do you use MiKTeX or TeX Live?

Yes, thankfully you already have listed this: Graphics file extensions and their order of inclusion when not specified.

comment Package “comicsans”: How to prevent setting of default fonts
@KillKRT: Yes, it is usually not necessary, but in most cases it is also for fonts better to load the respective package. Simply take a look into the package files (with .sty extension) for some fonts. You would have needed to put most of this code into your document preamble (though the package author must have different use cases in mind, while you probably need only a part of this).

This question appears to be off-topic because it is could be solve with a software reinstallation.

I do recommend to not use this out-of-date installer: How to use Xindy with MiKTeX? Could you, please, type in your command prompt the following echo %path%? Does show this the whole system path, as it should be?

When one made xindy available for MiKTeX with the tutorial you link in the beginning, then the Texindy entry must be changed to texindy.bat %.idx (BAT instead of EXE).

comment TeXworks bug - hidden parts of tex code
And to your avatar: I’m sure there are people, who feel offended (me not, but I consider it as bad taste). It would be wise to change to something less eccentric.

comment TeXworks bug - hidden parts of tex code
Sorry Vochmelka, but this question does in my opinion not fit into this site. First: if you know it’s a bug then inform the developer(s), here you could ask for a possible workaround. Second: To your question the only answers are either “Yes, I heard from.” or “No, I did not hear yet from this issue.”

What’s the purpose of \docend? It’s better readable for others to leave the original definition.
