comment Text without hyphenation with Tikz
Is the \hyphenchar\font=1 necessary to restore hyphenation, or is the \hyphenchar\font=1 actually localized? I ask because you called it a global switcher. At first glance, it seems to me that it would be a change valid only within the tikzpicture's scope.

For future reference, I confirmed that you are correct. See closed question tex.stackexchange.com/q/287580/13552

@egreg I think the culprit was the \par\noindent before the \hspace{5mm}\hangindent=5mm{\parbox...

comment How can I create block of text that ignores the surrounding glue?
@egreg Ah! Of course! The \par\xdef\tpd{\the\prevdepth} must happen within the scope of \footnotesize in order to capture its \lineskip value (or something, davidcarlisle explained it to me once). That means the mysterious whitespace above was caused by the larger \lineskip value of the normal font. Could you confirm this?

comment How can I create block of text that ignores the surrounding glue?
@egreg The solution to the other question does not solve my issue. I already tried using parameters with \parbox. Some mysterious whitespace remains. I also tried resetting the \prevdepth. Are you sure that applies to my situation? Please see edits. Maybe they warrant reopening this question.

@barbarabeeton Haha, very true! I copied the code from the last block without thinking about the text. Fixed :)

@Herbert He is demonstrating that the macro \counterA does not work if renewed. You need to use \value{counterA}. Quite an important detail Herbert! Thanks.

You answered the question correctly, I would just like to clear some things up. If you have time, maybe have a look at the edits to my question.
