comment How do I get rid of this line spacing after multicols?
@Mehrdad If you take a look at the mathmode pdf you will find plenty of examples with multiple columns. You just use && to separate the different columns and end the line with \\ to begin a new row. If you have equations you can write a&=b& to align the equations by the = sign.

comment References for learning how to check for typesetting problems
@Village I was wondering about the scope of this imaginary list. It touches at least technical writing, printing and typography issues. It depends on the type of document (think recipie, vs. PhD thesis) as well as on the language it is written in, whether it will be printed or just distributed electronically. I suggest to limit the scope somehow.

comment Vertical space between headlines, tables, images and the following text too large
Without more information about your document it is hard to tell what is causing this behaviour. I typically forget to remove the last \\ in a math environment, this introduces extra vertical space after the environment and naturally cannot be dealt with globally. Or if you use the center environment in figures instead of \centering you introduce extra vertical space.

comment How to make the rmligs script available globally on Windows?
@doncherry As Windows still has some DOS remains under the hood this hinges on the file suffixes. DOS knows how deal with .exe and .bat but a unix hashbang #!/usr/bin/perl in the first line is not considered. What you can do is rename rmligs to rmligs.pl and then register then ending .pl with your perl interpreter. Then you can just type >rmligs at the prompt and windows will hand it over to the perl interpreter, provided that the paths are all correcty entered in the environment variables.

comment Any suggestions/requests for features for a new package that allows disabling ligatures for (pre)selected words?
@Mico The font FF Unit Rounded Pro has an ffb ligature. Try Offbeat on the fontshop website. In German you might encounter not only f-ligatures. When typesetting “Fraktur” ch ck tz ligatures are possible.
