comment Strange behaviour of \@ command
@egreg Yes! I'm not sure how to continue, should I delete the question, mark as duplicate or accept an answer?

comment Strange behaviour of \@ command
@IanThompson Indeed... This was actually the condensed MWE from my much larger document where in a file three \input statements deep the \stst command was defined. Is there some way to tell (pdf)latex to warn me if I'm using \@ commands outside of a \makeat{letter,other} group? My header file has grown a bit... so I fear there could be more of this hidden somewhere.

comment Format of author and collaboration
@moewe That is correct, sorry I posted the wrong version. The new field has to be named usera (don't know why), however, in my temp testing file I tried to change that to the more verbose collaboration. I have updated the code.

comment siunitx's S column misaligns numbers if retain-unity-mantissa is false
In my case, the powers of tens are not units. The table is supposed to show that the forces act with at vastly different strength. Hence I consider both 1 and 10^-3 as a number and would like them to line up accordingly.

comment siunitx's S column misaligns numbers if retain-unity-mantissa is false
Well, I'd expect that the start of all numbers line up vertically, i.e. the 1 should be aligned over the 1 of 10^-3. Consequentially, for the number 2e-3 the 2 should line up with the 1.

comment Patching \chapter command such that all lower sections are set in twocolumn in ToC
You can find an updated example here. Could you explain what's the best way to "follow the trail" in order to find the command appropriate for patching? I think understanding how to solve this problem is much more important than the actual solution (not that I'd complain about being given the solution ;-) ).

comment Patching \chapter command such that all lower sections are set in twocolumn in ToC
The Master.toc file contains the ToC entries and the \end{multicols} forms but not the \begin{multicols}{2} forms. [2/2]

comment Patching \chapter command such that all lower sections are set in twocolumn in ToC
This is unexpected. I assumed that a command named apptocmd can actually append code to a command [meaning that appended code is executed after the original command has fully finished]. Your solution does work as advertised, however, my actual use case is much more involved using several other packages (hyperref, titletoc to name a few which I expect to modify the \chapter command). Is there a fail-safe approach to find the last command executed by \chapter (i.e. the one which needs to be patched)? It appears that patching \chapterheadendvskip in my non-MWE example has no effect: [1/2]

comment Automatic insertion of (Cont'd) when footnote splits across pages
Sorry to disappoint, but you have not provided a MWE. A MWE ("Minimal Working Example") is a self-contained document which can actually be compiled using a standard TeX distribution. At the very least your code snippet is lacking the header: It is not a "working" example. Check out this question on how to write a proper MWE.

comment Tikz primitive with scale factor of zero does not vanish
@percusse by primitive I mean something like \draw, i.e. a command which creates a graphical primitive (essentially a dot/line). The problem is that the code is autogenerated and I can't influence that these nodes are inserted into the file. The generator hides them by setting scale=0, however this does not work as expected (at least for my combination of texlive/evince).
