comment Is there a mechanism to provide a dimension or scale as input to an instance of a symbol?
A few notes on this: You are exploiting here something about circuit shapes, namely that they do not have any text. I know, the real use-case won’t have any text, but in the case you add some, things will go wrong. (The coordinate origin in the local node coordinate system will be at the most-left position of the text’s baseline.) This can be fixed very easily. Another thing are the additional lines left and right to the shape. These will not considered part of the shape by TikZ. So if you want to connect the node as in the other question the line will …

comment Adding nodes outside a tree and drawing arrows to them with tikz-qtree and tikz
Can you add a picture of your final image should look like? The additional \node is in no relation to the \Tree. Could you also update the MWE which is neither compilable nor complete?

comment Cross out the selected text using macro script in TexStudio
Does it need to be a TeXstudio macro? TeXstudio kind of can this on its own if the macro \st is known for it. If you select text and then type \st and auto-complete it TeXstudio automatically places the selected text as an argument to \st. The only problem is that \st may not properly recognized by TeXstudio. The soul.cwl (the auto-complete configuration file) lists it as a parameter-less macro so you might either change that or use your own soul-custom.cwl file or actually simply ad \st{arg} as a macro. Also, TeXstudio scans \newcommand and `\providecommand´ (dummy) entries.

comment Specific tikz shape with parameters
The “white surrounding spacing problem” is due the inner sep settings and (if the border is not drawn) the outer sep settings.

comment Could TiKz make a picture of a matrix with pictorial normal distributions?
Depending on the need for precision for the red lines, this can be done by TikZ \matrix very easily. Or you use a math-mode aligned environment and place little TikZ images in there.

comment Best way to illustrate Keplers 2nd law with tikz
How would you provide the coordinates optimally? Are they relative to the center of the ellipse or (as in your question and the answer) relative to one of the focus point? Or would you rather state two angles or one angle and a delta angle?

comment Best way to illustrate Keplers 2nd law with tikz
Very interesting. By the way, you can draw an ellipsoid arc just the same if you know the angles (from its center though): arc[start angle=<sa>, end angle=<ea>, x radius=<xr>, y radius=<yr>] (or (<sa>:<ea>:<xr> and <yr>)). I wonder if it would help to change TikZ’ coordinate system here with [x=2.5cm, y=2cm] then all ellipses and circles with radius 1 (and not 1cm!) would be stretched accordingly while polar coordinate are especially easy. Speaking of “unit circle” …

comment How to define a style for drawings using a special font and siunitx?
The default value for mode is math which means that it uses the math font. For some reason, siunitx chooses the text font for digits (even in math-mode itself). The mode option (which should be applied consistently with \sisetup) forces always text-mode. You need to go in more detail what you mean by “style template”. What (or who) should parse your numbers automatically? I am also missing the connection to TikZ here. Can you extend your question?

comment hyperbola curve and its arc
@giannis I have updated my answer with the “plain” version of your image (the arc is still not a hyperbola though). The other image shows the previous version with M lying in the middle of A and B.

You might link to the osifont. Regarding your problem, the text mode of siunitx helps with the font issue: \num[mode=text]{123456789,0}

comment Best way to illustrate Keplers 2nd law with tikz
Not that anything stands against saving the path in a macro (TikZ does support this) you can also save it as a style with the help of insert path: the saveuse path key. Might be helpful in some cases. :)
