comment How to automatically add \! in subscripts?
Thanks, but this produces errors when I use underscores in \label{}. How can I fix this?

comment Postprocessing pgfplotstable results using siunitx
When trying to run your MWE as posted here I get the error that the numbers could not be parsed (just get NaN in the table).

comment Part title in list of figures and tables?
This works perfectly and is easier, so I chose this one. Thanks. :)

comment Static analysis of LaTeX documents?
I added nag. Didn't know of lacheck but it seems to be outdated when I look on the examples and its date and it only seems to do most of what nag does, too.

@SvendTveskæg Good idea, I changed it this way.

comment Good typesetting practice for long equations
Is it good here to use \left and \right as well so that the derivatives don'T go over the ( and )? I think I'd prefere it when nothing goes over the paranthesis.

I agree. :) In the end you have to decide for yourself. But since this website is read by many people looking for help we should provide them all possible information to help them decide for themself. ;)

You only have to add it when it actually breaks, which will happen very rarely (proof-reading is a must with LaTeX in all cases). Or add it to the self-defined command, then it will always be there. Speaking semantically as a physicist myself, I don't think that 2pi belongs to the physical quantity. It's only a mathematical factor, it's neither the unit nor the value. Taking something "times 2pi" is a mathematical operation.

Curly brackets in math avoid line breaking: ${2\pi \times \SI{1}{\hertz}}$ will never linebreak.

I don't really see why this is better than $2\pi \times \SI{100}{\mega\hertz}$ or a new command, which both would even be shorter and more clear and without the need of repeated command options.

comment Ignoring arguments of label, ref etc. for spell checking in TeXnicCenter
But checking \ref and \label doesn't make much sense, because it will always be "gibberish" (according to a spell checker).

comment Ignoring arguments of label, ref etc. for spell checking in TeXnicCenter
This doesn't work in all cases. The values in \begin{} and \end{}, for example, are still marked as a spelling error. Or self defined node names in TikZ pictures. Or \label{}. But I think this can only be fixed by the author of the program in a new release.

comment Angular frequency in siunitx
I have to agree, in physics, writing omega = 2pi x f is the common way of writing these two things, because it includes both, frequency and angular freqency, at once and because this way there's no chance to confuse them.

comment Angular frequency in siunitx
But he's also using other values and units, which could be wrong this way, if the option is set globally. And always typing [product-units=single] on every single angular frequency locally can also be rather annoying if you have many of them.

comment Angular frequency in siunitx
But 2pi x is no unit, so I think it's just natural that you need something special for this. The "unit way" for angular frequencies would be rad/s (talking sloppy: rad basically means x 2pi).

comment Shifted hexagons in TikZ picture
Nice, this works as expected. Thank you very much. :) I already noticed that the letters increase the shifting, but also with empty nodes the problem was there. But this is now also fixed thanks to outer sep. :)

comment Angular frequency in siunitx
I changed the code a bit. Just pass two arguments to \angfreq, the first is the number, the second is the frequency.
