comment How to add a copyright page to the report class.
It seems that the command \uppertitleback has only an effect with scrbook. It is mentioned in KOMA script documentation on scrbook and also in a small experiment with scrreprt the contents of uppertitleback was not displayed.

comment How to generate pdf without any Type3 fonts?
@Ryan, this is already mentioned in an upvoted comment of the accepted answer. Please upvote it as well. You could even post a new short answer to the same effect - which I would upvote.

comment How to rotate landscape table page in PDF?
@Daniteba, no, I did not resolve the problem. Since the question is not really about blank page issues just go ahead and ask a new question - of course, you can link this question because it is related.

comment How to include online postage in a scrlttr2 letter?
Unfortunately, addrfield does not work together with backaddress - i.e. when using addrfield=backgroundimage the backaddress in the window area is disabled. Also I would need to shift the included graphics by ~ (-5mm,-5mm) to fit it into the window area.

@Sveinung, I gave feedback on Jake's comment - first I've waited for him posting an answer - now I see your answer which is probably even more convenient. I have to test your approach.

@drozzy, the difference is the order of the commands.

comment German Umlauts in BibTeX
@MartinSchröder, Sorting of UTF-8 strings as arrays of unsigned bytes will produce the same results as sorting them based on Unicode code points. ;) - but fair enough, using non-numeric labels would be a problem.

comment German Umlauts in BibTeX
@MartinSchröder, what are the limitations? The fact that utf8 in a .bib file only works with a utf8-input-encoded TeX-document? Or are there other pitfalls with utf8 and BibTeX?

comment Fonts larger than \Huge?
Could you add an explanation what the meaning of the first and 2nd argument is (50 and 60)? Width times height in points?

comment Insert relative date and time specifications?
@YiannisLazarides, @Martin Scharrer - I have checked out the documentation to advdate and datetime but I can't figure out how to solve this. Today + n days works great - but something like 'next thursday' is different, i.e. the output is the same until the next thursday ... :)

comment How to minimize the ink-to-data ratio for pgfplots
Do I understand you correctly that the economist plot is an example where the ink-to-data ratio is minimized according to Tufte's criteria?

comment How to output a counter with leading zeros?
I want to use it as an argument to \Opensolutionfile{ans}[prefixCOUNTER] which is part of the answers package. And your approach works fine in that context.

no, I am not using the times package - the system was missing the cm-super package - see my comment to Ulrike Fischer's answer.

Thanks, I've found some pk fonts the log file (see the update) - I have no real idea, where they are coming from, though ...

comment How to prevent hyphenation in title (\maketitle)?
It seems that \nohyphens is not imperative - i.e. depending on the paragraph I still get a hyphenation.
