comment How can I apply a regex (l3regex) on items in a sequence? [LaTeX3]?
@egreg Why are you so fast to answer these things? I think you have a chip inplant or 6th sense that alerts you upon new stackexchange posts. Thanks :) Another thing: does \cs_set_eq:NN \__macmadness_action:n #1 just convert the inputted csname/"action" into a LaTeX3 csname/action? \__macmadness_action:n is then called by \use:n?

comment How can I apply a regex (l3regex) on items in a sequence? [LaTeX3]?
@egreg Why do you set the last list item to a temp variable and remove it from the list without using it? \seq_pop_right:cN { l_macmadness_list_#1_seq } \l_tmpa_tl Does this have something to do with reading a file? Is the last item useless?

comment Why can you not skip lines in document when providing optional environment parameters with xparse?
@egreg Ok, that makes sense. My use of trailing arguments is to create an environment that will go at the beginning of every document that contains certain required metadata that when not provided, show up in the document in nice bright letters for all to see (demonstrating that this info is indeed missing). parameters: <privacylevel> <target group> <purpose> I thought it would be better to let the parameters trail, because two of those mentioned contain paragraphs. It was purely a readability issue (in the code).

Exactly the same indentation as the default description list with style=nextline enabled. More importantly, I think the ability to control indentation is important and should not be sacrificed.

Thanks. Actually I thought about that, but it is not aesthetically pleasing. +1 for working solution though! Maybe I will end up going for this option if I cannot find a better solution.

@GonzaloMedina True. I need to find a way to replicate a scenario where the label DOES fit into the margin at least once in a minimal example. Nonetheless, the issue is still there.

comment Description list - How to put the definition on a new line?
It is worth noting that this does not work if your key fits within the margins. Excerpt from the enumitem Manual: nextline: if the label does not fit in the margin, the text continues in the next line. I have found this to be less than four characters. \item [Red] This field is mandatory. I assume this is a space-saver mechanism, but I do not think it is aesthetic. I would be interested in suppressing this behavior.

comment Design a custom Beamer theme from scratch
@ClaudioFiandrino Then why do you use a height of 1.2 instead of \the\paperheight? It is still not clear to me what exactly you are cropping. What objects?

comment Design a custom Beamer theme from scratch
@ClaudioFiandrino Could you please explain why useasboundingbox is important? I am looking to make a tikz rectangle for each standard frame like this: \path [draw,fill=green!25!black] (current page.north west) rectangle (\the\paperwidth,-3.62cm);

comment Is there a way to iterate over all defined colors without mentioning them again?
For example, if I wanted not just "colora" to be printed, but also cymk and its values: {cmyk}{0,.5,1,.3} either decimally like that or in percentages. The reason for this is that I am designing a style sheet, where the outputted PDF can be used as a reference for other users who might want to user a color. They can then easily reference the cmyk values.

I know this question is old, but I just had a request for putting the cmyk values explicitly on the page. Is that also possible with a minor adjustment to the code?

Thanks! Your answer implies that setting both is the same as setting just -halt-on-error. Is this correct?
