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

comment Multi-line options with the `\usepackage` command
You could add the version, where the commas are in front of all. Some people like this more (me not), because they tend to delete them too easily otherwise.

@moose: See my edit about the relevant information. And this can be done, but needs time for writing an answer.

comment glossaries: including all items in a Glossary on TexniCenter
(Since no one other did this, some more or less technical remarks now.) Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. And a suggestion: Do us a favour and change your username to something more telling than "user1234".

@user1778354: Write this yourself as answer. In the moment it is just a comment. But actually is this a duplicate of the one linked by Nicola.

comment Ugly linebreak in texniccenter
I cannot confirm this here, but maybe with a certain setting this happens (try changing entries in menu “View”). Then a bug tracker entry would be useful.

comment Tooltip that works with all pdf readers
You have alreay tagged with an according package name, cf. also Mouseover events in beamer: hovering on \eqref and a comment containing the original equation popping up. There is at least the package pdfcomments, as well. For the PDF readers: As example SumatraPDF does not at all execute such tooltips.

comment Using TEXINPUTS to store macros
In the moment this is for me “Unclear what your asking”. You gave too little information: Did you call the batch file from TeXlipse? How did you go safe, that your_portable_ MiKTeX is in the system path (usually one must execute everything from the own command prompt or add something appropriate to an own batch file, and executing this every time)? Also, you could add the contents of your latest comment here into an answer (respecting my questions if possible).

comment Missing package in OpenSuSE?
According to a comment to Herbert you have a special OpenSuSE version. Maybe there is something buggy. In German usenet group de.comp.text.tex another user complained about this, too. If you understand German, see this answer (but the most important are the web links): groups.google.com/d/msg/de.comp.text.tex/qVFZ6sN8ZJw/… In short: first deinstall, then install dummy-package from CTAN, then full vanilla TeX Live. There two alternatives linked, one of them in German.

comment How to plot a graph of a function with undefined constants?
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

comment Font messed up in print, but looks good on the screen?
While creating a minimal working example (MWE) it can happen, that the issue disappears – and this one of the possible goals of this process.
