A paper of mine has been accepted by a conference proceeding and they have submitted the paper to a leading digital online library (e.g. ScienceDirect). I checked last week and the paper has been accepted by the library but the figures and some of the wordings are all messed up!
Before the conference proceeding submitted the paper, I noticed some of the figures were already misaligned and some of the wording are also jumbled up because of the poor editing by the editor. I notified them regarding the matter and it seems that they didn't do anything about it and just submitted it to the library.
I read after you've submitted it to an online digital library, you can't do anymore changes! But the paper is so messed up that I feel so embarrassed by this situation!
Any advice? : (
My old supervisor plagiarized my work and I decided to get a new supervisor. To keep long story short, should I tell the new supervisor the reason why I wanted to change supervisor?
The school is quite tight knit so I guess the new supervisor would know by now of my current situation. I just don't know how to approach him at the moment.
Many thanks for the advice.

If you're not on contract or anything, and you have such a horrible supervisor that is effecting your emotional and physical health, why would you even consider that everything's going to be alright soon and continue doing something that's obviously bad for you? Why the guilt?
Getting a job would be tedious but doable since you already have a degree; what other people think don't matter (you're an adult already, why do you care what they think?); why stay in a place that is obviously toxic for your health (unless you received some payment; even that is questionable); if you are passionate about the topic, do you think working with horrible supervisors would help you with your work; etc.
I know the above is debatable; feel free to chip in.

I really have extreme doubts with my supervision :' (
My supervisor never reads any of my work; never. This Wednesday, I would need to present my progress to transfer from my MPhil to the PhD and he hasn't even read any of the chapters : ( He emailed me yesterday stating that he wants to see me tomorrow regarding the proposal; he wants to do the commenting after I printed the proposal for him! What on earth!?
I have published a few journal articles; all written by me and I've included his name as well. He didn't even bother reading them at all!
I have failed to secure any grants because he left all the proposals the day before submissions, and I'm basically broke right now! I wanted to do some TAs before; he never even replied to those emails!
My proposal is in a bad shape and I have no idea if I could make it. If I can't pass the transfer this Wednesday, that's it for me :' (
Isn't it the job of the supervisor to read the work?
