comment Artificial displacement between a point and its coordinate using the coordinate command
This seems related: How can I set the TikZ label anchor explicitly?

comment Draw a transparency gradient arc over a rectangle with tikz
The arc is not fully described. What is its radius?

comment Artificial displacement between a point and its coordinate using the coordinate command
Yes, however, there is also outer sep (defaults to .5\pgflinewidth so that the border lies on the outside of a drawn shape). Note, that the $.$ has different dimensions in vertical and horizontal dimensions, see every label/.append style={draw, inner sep=0pt}. (However, I assume the actual label will contain actual text/math and not just the dot.) Try to set the label's shape to circle.

comment \vec{x} but with arrow from right to left?
Can the arrow be rotated instead of reflected to have the correct slanting? Now, the \cev arrow slants to the left, while the \vec arrow (as well as the italic letter) slants to the right.

comment Artificial displacement between a point and its coordinate using the coordinate command
The created label (just a node) is by default of the shape rectangle and so it might seem that the distance is different, depending on which anchor on the label will be used. (Also the inner and outer xseps and yseps will affect the placement.) Set every label/.append style={draw} to see what I mean.

comment Finding current siunitx settings (or extracting expl3 keys)
\keys_show:nn {siunitx}{round-precision} will show you that it does \int_set:Nn \l__siunitx_process_precision_int {#1} (or you look in siunitx.sty).

comment I do not know the key /tiks/graphs/grow down
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the problem was resolved by updating a package.

comment TikZ – draw arrow with empty space in the middle
What are the definition for the dots or the empty space? To they have a specific length? Is it a specific part of the line length? How about curved lines?

comment draw two shape with TikZ in one line
It depends on how you draw one shape to draw two shapes. The easiest might be just to use two separate TikZ pictures side by side.

comment pgfpositionnodelater with nested \tikz environments (Issue with PGF 2.1 -> 3.0 upgrade)
This looks like it should work with the forest package. However I couldn't find the right hook where something like span vertical={(forest cs:go=first)(forest cs:go=last)} could work right. Either it didn't do anything, or it couldn't find the nodes. forest internally works similar as it typesets all nodes beforehand and measures them to find the right placement.

comment pass figure size in parameter
Ah, it is probably not expanded early enough. I'd recommend the key syntax with the brackets anyway.

comment pass figure size in parameter
You need to use \space (which is really just a raw space) or enclose \semix in braces, or better yet, use the proper notation: \draw (x+1,\y) ellipse[x radius=\semix, y radius=\semiy]; If you set these keys in a scope (or a tikzpicture), you can just write ellipse[] (and might not need extra macros).

comment TeXstudio doesn't start anymore
Have you tried the 2.9.4 snapshot? It might be better to take this problem to the bugtracker or the forum of TeXstudio development site.

So on average, he is comfortable? — On a serious note, I'm not sure TikZ is the right tool. Might be easier to just buy an oven and a freezer and take a photo …
