comment Use truetype Comic Sans font in XeTeX
Other than that, there's the package mathastext which helps to use the text font even in math mode. However, I think it is not a good idea. Preparing a proper math font is more than just taking some glyphs somewhere and using them for typesetting math. For instance, Comic Sans misses the blackboard letters completely that you use for the complex field.

comment Is there a 'good' way to make 'local' changes outside of a group in expl3?
Ah I didn't realize that \choice is a part of UI. Then this solution seems to be good.

@SeanAllred And does \choice need to be called \choice? Can't it be \__termmenu_something?

comment chemfig and lego-style molecule construction
Hello! It indeed looks nice, but I don't think it is suitable as an answer to the question. It doesn't really answer the question, rather it builds upon one of the other answers.

comment What are good learning resources for a LaTeX beginner?
While the wikibook is fine, I would certainly not recommend it as the best resource. Some of the items down the list are certainly better.

comment How to make this expected value symbol?
Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. I believe your question is covered by How to look up a symbol or identify a math symbol or character?.

comment Color for subsequent punctuations marks
Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. Your file doesn't compile to me due to the degree symbol in one of the references. Do you see any error of this kind that you maybe skip? In general, I get a completely different output from what you show us. But I do get colored punctuation, like you do.

comment Resize Greek letter in an equation
It needs to be only as visible as it is by default. I hope I'll never have to copy-edit your work :-)

comment Resize Greek letter in an equation
I just ask why you would want to use a larger letter, because I can't imagine a usage in which it wouldn't look awful. My apologies for the inappropriate tone of my previous message.

comment Adding a rectangular box with tikz to table (beamer)
I'm not convinced that this is a direct duplicate. Are the solutions in the other question compatible with dcolumn?

In your case yes, in the original case not so.

comment Adding a rectangular box with tikz to table (beamer)
D column type comes from dcolumn package and is intended for items aligned at a decimal point. I'm afraid that it's crucial to the OP. As well, you then need \multicolumn{1} to change D to c in the first line.

@UlrikeFischer I'm sure this has been asked before, but I'm unable to find the original question...

comment Change name of abstract
@MyUserIsThis Please follow what Christian Hupfer requests and add a Minimal Working Example ("working" here means "can be compiled and shows the formatting error you deal with").

comment Change name of abstract
@Sverre The OP says that \renewcommand\abstractname{...} doesn't work the expected way. How is it a duplicate then?

comment unbold title and no line break for a subsection
Your request for having one subsection with a completely different style than the other subsections is strange, but I agree that it's not a duplicate anymore. However, please help us to help you and 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 Can I get $$…$$ to behave like \[…\]?
I don't share your sense of aesthetics. Typing 30 chars more is not what slows you down when writing a mathematical text.

comment Can I get $$…$$ to behave like \[…\]?
If you forget that you're not in plain TeX, you should correct yourself, not the system. No, this is effectively not possible. You could implement it, but it would be too fragile to be usable in general. As well, feature requests don't belong on this site :-) (that's to the "LaTeX3" part of your text); I'm also sure that I know at least two LaTeX3 developers who would never implement this :-)

comment Can I make all section headings bigger?
@supercoolphysicist If you want it only for one title type, you should really modify this one title type in the standard way the package offers. Just read its documentation.
