comment Flowchart using TiKz - connecting arrows
@arunmoezhi: see edit. If you have questions about other techniques it's probably better to start a new question (the one you originally asked has been answered).

comment Flowchart using TiKz - connecting arrows
@arunmoezhi: Yes, you can do that if you put a coordinate in between. But I'm not sure what you mean by "right of box2.south". Is that the same as box2.south east? Or do you mean a point between box2.south and box2.south east?

comment Rolling bullet points in beamer
@feffemannen: That's a good question. So you would like to have, for each step, the maximum number of bullet points through that step that will fit on the slide, to appear? That seems possible but I'm not skilled enough to do it.

comment Typeset the shrug ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ emoji
Off-topic, I guess, but: Instead of researching how to cutely disclose that you do not know how to do the problem, why not work on the problem? It will be more beneficial to your grade and your learning if you write something, even the things you tried that didn't work.

comment tikz projection parallel to given line
@daleif: I just tested it on a pgfplots canvas and it does seem to work, as well as it does without it.

comment Cannot determine size of graphic
Just to add: specificying natwidth and natheight also solved a problem I had with jpgs having incorrect bounding boxes (so the tex file compiles, but the image ends up misplaced).

comment In what directory should I store my new LaTeX template?
@dbliss if all this talk of distributions and mktexlsr is confusing to you, go with cfr's "manual option", and use your TEXMFHOME.

comment In what directory should I store my new LaTeX template?
@cfr: What I meant was, each TeX distribution has a local system-wide texmf. Isn't that true? For instance, with texlive it's /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/.

comment How can I get a better pound symbol (number sign, hash character) “#”?
I believe a hashtag refers to this symbol plus an alphanumeric string. The symbol alone is a hash character. I prefer octothorpe.

@OLSAY: That's a question to ask the MathJax folks.

comment How to get part name in LaTeX ?
@juanuni: The book class might have a different implementation of \part. My patching of auxiliary macros was specific to how report did it.

comment How do I modify the placement of the prime symbol?
Ah, no I didn't forget; I've never known that syntax! I had trouble finding it in mathspec's documentation, too. But there it is, in the code comments: put the " before a character, e.g $􏰐"f$􏰐, and the character is printed with kerns on either side.

comment What to put into the dtx file?
One file you cannot put into a .dtx file is a Makefile. Docstrip strips tab characters which are necessary for make's syntax. There are workarounds requiring post-docstrip processing of the generated Makefile, but I'm not sure it's worth the trouble.

Christian notes that it's not as simple as that for an every quiver plot key. See the SourceForge ticket.

Welcome to TeX.SX! Next time, please make your MWE compilable so that answerers don't have to add this text to test.

comment Clipping only the bottom of a graph in pgfplots/tikz?
I already did: Take your code, search for clip=false, and replace with clip mode=individual. I normally would post a complete compilable document but since I only changed 10 characters it seemed like overkill. Here it is as a gist

comment How to insert a dashed line over a bigwedge symbol so that the dashed line behaves like overline would?
Well now you have the opposite problem. The dollar signs put it into inline mode! So you could use \mathchoice or find a way to not use a specific math mode.

comment How to insert a dashed line over a bigwedge symbol so that the dashed line behaves like overline would?
As for #1, your \preclosure macro has \displaystyle in it. That is how it ends up bigger.
