comment Free PDF viewer allowing to measure in a document?
Click and hold the Measurement Tool Icon -> Show Comments styles palette, where you can change colour, etc, and scaling, and create multiple different measuring profiles if you do this very often

comment The vertical lines in my tabular environment are scattered
Just FYI, it's generally considered a Really Bad Idea to use vertical lines in tables. I'm afraid I don't have the needed citation to hand at the moment, but I'm sure another user will step in to provide it.

comment Vertically center text on a page
Perhaps the anonymous down-voter would care to share his/her reasons here, so that I, and others, can learn and improve?

comment How to display all the Chapter's name in a document without using minitoc, titletoc, shorttoc, toc?
In my admittedly limited experience, minitoc works very well with memoir. Maybe you need to ask a different question (with MWE): "Why is minitoc not working with memoir in my document"?

comment Formatting memoir page notes - how do I eliminate a space?
@daleif Lars, I think it's because the text of the note just "follows on" in the .ent file. Adding a % after the fourth parameter to \startnoteentry in the .ent file might well fix it.

comment Fontawesome does not print some characters
This code appears to work fine on my TeX Live (up-to-date). (I assume you want the blobby black letter i) Suggestions: (1) make sure your distribution is up to date; (2) see if you can see anything "suspicious" in the log. Please indicate whether you are using XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX, too.

comment Drawing binary trees with LaTeX labels
@VáclavPavlík "too many labels" suggests that OP's tree may be considerably larger than in the answers cited. Just how well does tikz or tikz-qtree scale to large trees?

Or they can always use an old-fashioned device known as a "secretary" to type it all out again.

comment PDF with an expiration date through Latex
Sorry, but I'm sort-of inclined to vote this as off-topic. Maybe it should be on SuperUser.com?

comment Why using marginpar?
FWIW, not everyone agrees that everything Tufte does is very good by definition. I agree with @percusse that long interpolations are disruptive as margin notes, and, maybe even as footnotes. These days, I'm tending towards favouring end notes.
