comment How to install a current version of TikZ?
@YanKingYin I don't understand your comment, but this answer is out of date. TikZ/PGF is now part of TeX Live and you do not require a special package.

comment Making url package customized break settings apply only to specific urls
@DavidCarlisle I've added a MWE. "just set it locally for the one URL" would work for me. How do I do that?

comment Manually URL linebreak with Biblatex
Is there some way to have this only operate on one url? I tried giving the default \def\UrlBreaks, again, but it had no effect.

Thank you for the explanation, Ulrike. Indeed, it was a foolish mistake, as I thought.

comment Using mailmerge with scrlttr2 KOMA letter class
@Fran thanks for the tip. Do you have any thoughts on the differences between mailmerge and textmerg?

comment Using mailmerge with scrlttr2 KOMA letter class
@blue_tiger300 I use datatool, yes. But mailmerge seems nice and simple, and ideally customized for this purpose. datatool, dunno. Not so much.

comment Avoiding empty space at the bottom of a scrlttr2 letter
@Sveinung as you can see, I put that stuff (address, phone no etc.) on top, in the letterhead. Is putting it at the bottom of the front page normal? If so, can you point me to an example? I have not tried adjusting the DIV factor. What would that do here?

comment Is there a way to tell latex to output a file containing a single chapter, while still using the formatting from the full document?
It sounds like your class could use an option to suppress the boilerplate. Perhaps you should write a question asking how to do that. :-) And then submit it to the class maintainers.

Are the chapters in their own separate files, or is the whole thing in one file?

You could just run pdftk on it. That's probably the simplest approach. But a LaTeX approach is probably also possible.

comment KOMA-Script: Adjust text region based on header height
Thank you for mentioning headinclude. I spent some time wondering why headheight was not working, and couldn't find anything else. It could be better documented in the manual.

This is a "me too" comment. But I get this problem with more than one font.

comment Customizing the letterhead using 'firsthead' in scrlttr2 (vertical positioning issues)
That's true - I don't see the error with the example in your answer. Thanks for the additional suggestion. I suppose I could use the footer as well. BTW, the last image you added is rather fuzzy.

comment Customizing the letterhead using 'firsthead' in scrlttr2 (vertical positioning issues)
I made those changes, but I still get an error message, now "Class scrlttr2 Warning: head of first page is 14.01086pt too high. (scrlttr2) You have to change `firstheadvpos' (scrlttr2) or you have to define a smaller (scrlttr2) head of first page using \setkomavar. (scrlttr2) Because of this too high head of first page (scrlttr2) you've got an overfull \vbox message on input line 45."

comment Customizing the letterhead using 'firsthead' in scrlttr2 (vertical positioning issues)
Thanks for the update. Is there some way to move both the firsthead and toaddrvpos down while still keeping KOMA/TeX happy? I did something like \makeatletter \@addtoplength{firstheadvpos}{5pt} \@addtoplength{toaddrvpos}{5pt} \makeatother. The reason is that with the current position of firsthead (read letterhead) my printer cuts off part of the first line.

Thank you for the very detailed reply. I'll take a look at it soon.
