comment Beamer with Goettingen, xelatex: white space on top of the sidebar
lualatex doesn't appear to have this problem. Curious, though - this looks like it could be a (xelatex-induced) browser artifact. PdfXchange Viewer and the TexWorks viewer both show the white space, but it stays the same size even at 6400% zoom.

comment Various *sty files missing when using adjustbox
Two simple rules for a quiet life with TeX Live: (1) Use the built-in package manager (tlmgr) rather than your Linux package manager; and (2) install everything.

comment Documentclass Standalone - Outcome with rounded corners
How do you want these rounded corners to show themselves? E.g. you can just print square white corners on rounded paper, or embed the page in a round-cornered tikz frame. There's really no such thing as a "page with rounded corners" in the abstract sense.

comment Trim marks & bleed
Plus, if you're using the twoside class option, then the default margins for geometry are asymmetric (2:3).

comment Trim marks & bleed
Are you using asymmetric margins? Maybe your page (16x14) is centred on your paper (a4), but your text block is not centred on your page. Try \usepackage{showframe} for a clue

Show us what you've tried already. This isn't a "please draw this for me for free" website.

comment Why can't TeX Live's size be reduced?
Even at $100 a terabyte, that 4Gb costs you ¢40. You'd probably take at least 1 hour to save ¢20. Multiply by five to estimate the additional costs of backup etc, and you get $1 per hour. That's a lot less than minimum wage.

comment What is the best way to put a long list of words into latex beamer (presentation)
Presumably you want a multi-column list, with automatic column breaks?

comment Is it possible to build a table with strings of dingbats instead of horizontal rules?
Yes, I think that looks ugly enough for what OP is wanting...

comment how to check in latex whether the table of content is empty or not before added to the document
My intuition tells me that you really ought to know/decide whether or not your document should have a TOC. Sorry to be grumpy.

comment How to get sane margin sizes suitable for paperback books using memoir?
Since you're using memoir (jolly good!), you should ignore any advice to use geometry; memoir has excellent built-in facilities to do what you want.

comment Awful ToC layout, while using roman number
@MikeRenfro I was joking (if you can call it that) to make a point -- Roman numerals aren't very user-friendly. Maybe OK for numbering Parts, but only if five or less.

comment Awful ToC layout, while using roman number
Is there any special reason you want to use Roman numbering when mentioning your A9 operating system?

comment How do I extract a month name in datetime2?
@cfr I'm sorry, I don't think I can improve on that too much. I'll update the question to clarify a bit, but I really haven't a clue.

comment Why is Latex giving this odd output?
+1 for reminding us all that "rewrite the sentence" is often a lot simpler, better solution that invoking all sorts of macro ninjutsu.

comment How can I align text between fitted and positioned nodes?
Thanks for that idea, Gonzalo. In my case, I don't specifically align the text vertically. Is the default text anchor different for a non-fitted node? It looks like the text is not actually centred in the fit box.

comment Start Memoir's frontmatter on a verso page
I'm sorry, again, but I think you are asking for something that is logically impossible. The first printed page, however you arrive at it, is always recto,

comment Start Memoir's frontmatter on a verso page
Sorry, I find it a little difficult to understand what page order you're trying to achieve. I would have thought the logical thing to do would be put the \maketitle right after \frontmatter (assuming you want the title page first??? The first page og the book is always (by logic) recto, as it's generally what you see when the book sits on the table.
