comment Creating commands with a TeX `for` loop
This is impressive! Could you explain a little how the code logic works? I've never seen anything like this before.

comment Creating commands with a TeX `for` loop
It would be good if the title remained with the two words separated. I think one possible way is by \let\@tempb\@tempa at the start and then putting \modulespec{\@tempb} instead?

@ChristianH. I'm afraid I don't know enough TeX to produce anything working. I can add a minimal document to the question if that helps?

@JosephWright Removing the spaces is not an absolute requirement, I think there are few enough commands to define them by hand.

comment Indent entire section using only preamble
titlesec does something at the end of the heading which invalidates this; it indents the heading fine, just not the text afterwards.

comment What's the quickest way to write “2nd” “3rd” etc in LaTeX?
Which drawbacks? \xspace works in both normal and math mode.

comment Joining lines and text together (and a grey footnote) in a new environment for grey text
Yes, footnotetext is very handy in these kinds of situations! I use it mostly to avoid complications with tables and to allow one footnote to cover multiple columns. Glad that it works!

comment Joining lines and text together (and a grey footnote) in a new environment for grey text
And you did this using \footnotetext? Did you place \footnotetext in a grey area? That might cause the problem.

What is acceptable then? Is one line of text enough before the final line enough?

I redid the answer without mdframed to get the title right, using a minipage to ensure that the box can never be broken across the page.

Just to be clear, is it acceptable for the box to break across pages if there is text before each line?

comment Test for vertically overfull parbox
How would you change the name of the environment macro to something else in order to preserve the original behaviour of parbox? e.g. \fullornotparbox instead of \parbox. I see lots of \defs but none that are \def\parbox.

comment How to horizontally align all characters like a typewriter
This is fantastic. Considering a typewriter would never adjust any line spacing naturally, losing parskips is no big deal. (In fact, my final document will probably have some pretty stringent limits on line spacing for this reason.)

comment How to horizontally align all characters like a typewriter
I know I'm unlikely to use it, but any idea how to fix it if the argument of CenterIt goes over two lines?

Thanks, added MWE to the question. At the moment it's two sided.

Have you checked out the package tensind? I use that all the time in lectures.

comment How to flow a marginpar that does not fit to next page (or: how to write text with lots of margin notes)?
I know it may not fix the problem, but have you tried increasing the margins for the marginpar notes? Might ease it a little.

And if niether of those work, a MWE of it not working would be a great help!

comment How to change the indentation of all enumerates?
It's possible that other packages are conflicting with it. Which others are you using? It could help to put paralist last, so that it overwrites the behaviour of any other packages you've loaded. If that doesn't work, where do you put \setdefaultleftmargin? Try it inside the \begin{document} if you can, again it may be another package changing the settings once \begin{document} is processed.

comment How to change the indentation of all enumerates?
Mm, I'm pretty sure you can achieve that effect with paralist as well.
