comment How does the stripcommand in the pgfmanual file work?
Just a minor point, but without braces around the macro argument,\removeats\ab@cd@ef will only work as stated if the category code of @ is 11.

Actually, the \getridofats command replaces @ with \protect\printanat.

comment Why do coordinates in Bezier curves add to the padding in TikZ?
The circle picture doesn't get the extra white space as the the picture's bounding box is only updated when a coordinate is used in a path. It you use \path (a); after the coordinate is defined, the bounding box will be updated.

comment Horizontal brace above another brace + node in TikZ
@erik, well it only exists because I defined the text as nodes style in the answer. It is actually hiding a text decoration.

comment Text on rectangular spiral with automatic sizing to fill page
@DiovaEid you may find the decoration might "choke" on very large texts spread out over long paths, as all the calculations in the decoration are done using pure TeX and TeX is not so good with the kind of maths required. But it might work.

comment TikZ: Intersection point with a double-line path
@AboAmmar path actions (e.g., drawing, filling) and properties (e.g., line width, color) are independent of the path specification (i.e., its shape). The name path key only saves the path specification. Currently there is no way to save the actions and properties of a path, and they are essentially 'forgotten' once the path is used.

comment Adding words centered above other words with TikZ
@Sverre yes it would still work. The labels can be added as nodes individually rather than in a \foreach loop as I did initially above. Also it is possible to label the words inside the decoration as I demonstrate with my updated answer.
