comment Appendices prefixed with “Chapter” instead of with “Appendix” in TOC
@Sveinung The last four packages are: appendix, makeidx, hyperref and, after the Oberdiek ``quick and dirty hack'' to call showidx, cleveref. What is a pity is that, as mentioned above, the "actual document", which is rather intricate, otherwise works beautifully.

comment Appendices prefixed with “Chapter” instead of with “Appendix” in TOC
Even this "latex challenged" person could see that this was just what the doctor ordered but . . . I am afraid it didn't work here: neither in the MWE nor in the "actual document".

comment Clicking Index in table of contents gets last chapter instead of Index
So, did the page start with the title, Index, or did the page start with the top entries?

Strange: if I open the pdf with preview, all is well!

comment Clicking Index in table of contents gets last chapter instead of Index
The magnum opus is at (freemathtexts.org/InProgress/RAFv7.1) and the Oberdiek hack is at (groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/comp.text.tex/fof9f-cln-I). But, as I said, if you want I can post a new question with a mwe.

comment Clicking Index in table of contents gets last chapter instead of Index
1. As noted above, \newpage along with \phantomsection worked for me without the tocbibind package. 2. In the magnum opus, which uses the Oberdiek "quick and dirty hack" to allow coexistence with showidx, it still works but here the index page starts with the first entry without showing the title. 3. The tocbibind package does not improve on this in the magnum opus. 4. The imakeidx package seems to conflict with the Oberdiek "quick and dirty hack". (TeX capacity exceeded). I have a mwe that I can post in another question if you are interested.

@barbara beeton \newpage alone did not do it for me. But with \phantomsection it did, texhack notwithstanding, More below, though.

comment Minipages do not always line-up while Boxedminipages do
1. Now I understand. Thanks. 2. I like the third strategy. 3. However, since I already have a heavy investment in tcolorbox which of course allows one to emulate minipages, boxed or not, I am considering eliminating minipages altogether from the magnum opus. I would appreciate any comment.

@Zarko Thanks for the edit and thereby showing me how to use mwe here.

comment Minipages do not always line-up while Boxedminipages do
1. I mostly wanted to understand why the different behaviors. 2. My only issue with raisebox is that I have to adjust <height> each time. 3. I will study your two answers, which I assume to adjust <height> automatically, a bit later and let you know which way I went. 4. I am grateful.

comment How to build two different .tex files from same .tex file
@ ignasi For a completely different but perhaps equally completely irrelevant solution, see (freemathtexts.org/AncillariesManagement/index.php). Described in [tug.org/pracjourn/2010-2/schremmer.html].

comment Of two boxes rasterized by tcolorbox, the left one is cut short
Correct. I normally do have cleveref for cref and cpageref. Took it out of the code but not of the message. Sigh.

comment undefined reference in tcolorbox
@ Christian Hupfer That much I knew. But what I don't really know is the use of % at the end of each line. But that's for another time.
