comment TikZ: Make node height span several others
With outer sep=0pt you set the anchors in the middle of the line not on its border which may not preferable if you want to connect the nodes later. A solution that is not dependent on outer sep would be: \path let \p1=($(A.north)-(D.south)$) in node(Z)[right=of A.north east,anchor=north west, inner sep=0, minimum height=\y1-\pgflinewidth] {Z}; This, of course, could be hidden behind another key similar to fit.

comment Problem with tikz picture and polyglossia with XeTeX
I’ll get at least ! Package bidi Error: Oops! you have loaded package tikz after bidi package. Please load package tikz before bidi package, and then try to run xelatex on your document again. On that note, I don’t even get a section title without TikZ …

comment Error with $ when using math in TikZ figure
The comma in the second variable is actually used as a delimiter between the tupels, you need to write -/{$[-\alpha,\beta)$} or something along the lines. How TikZ distinguish the comma between \alpha and -\beta and the one between $ and -1? Then there is a ] missing in the \node[above before.

comment Energy level diagrams with TeX
It would be nice of you to show us some diagrams you are talking about or at least link us to good Wikipedia pages or other references so that we could at least see what you are talking about.

comment Subnodes in a vector in TikzEdt
@GonzaloMedina No it is not. @Op I agree here with Gonzalo. TikZEdt is nothing but a editor for TikZ (and a neat parser/visualizer for basic paths). You should be able to simply use the tikzpicture (and needed \usetikzlibrary) here. Why have you changed so much compared to percusse’s answer anyway?

The shape would be very similar to the rounded rectangle shape.

comment Fill of a thermometer
A simple thermometer like this could be drawn by a two lines and two arcs, can’t it? Either way, you can draw the thermometer after the nodes and then use its path picture (which is like a clip but behind the drawn lines) and the created nodes (they are named) to fill the area. Instead of the created nodes, the path itself (or calc can be used).

comment Mindmap tikzpicture in beamer (reveal step by step)
@Daniel Well, visible on={<1,3>} works if you secure that , also in visible on’s definition: visible on/.style={alt={#1{}{invisible}}}. The braces are stripped the first time and you would left with yet another “free” ,. This makes it possible to use overlay aware macros for TikZ without the need to add braces like for \arrow of tikz-cd.

comment Highlight and use arrows in an equation In a robust manner
@user2536125 Well, just try |[circle,fill=red]| 2\rho\pi \\ for example.

comment Highlight and use arrows in an equation In a robust manner
@user2536125 You can do that. You can define different styles besides ! or simply replace ! or mymatrix in the actual use with what you want. Anyway, I’d use a different input where you only mark the row which should be highlighted or something like that. You may update your question with the kind of “more robust” you had in mind.
