comment How to overlay tikz matrix in beamer?
Take a look at the approach described here and use the visible on<> style to always draw all elements, but hide those that should not yet be visible.

comment usage of \only with counter, pdfcomment and beamer class
I have found a small glitch, though: If one reduces the number of slides, \thelastslideofframe still contains the old value on the next pdflatex run. In this run, we insert content (the PDF comment) with \only<\thelastslideofframe>, so that after this run the number of slides is again the original value of \thelastslideofframe. Solution/Workaround: Delete the .nav auxiliary file.

comment Maintaining two similar versions without duplication
@ErelSegalHalevi: In the respective master, just add the two branches as well (Documents -> Settings -> Branches), but just Activate only the one you want to include.

comment How can I highlight some lines from source code?
@AnCongTran: That is a bit more than a small addition and this question is specifically about highlighting. To keep topics concise, please ask a new question (including an MWE, and, maybe, a link to this answer.

For exactly this purpose I use the comment package to comment out parts I do not want to compile. See also tex.stackexchange.com/questions/17816/…

comment A command to define other commands with arguments
@Stirling: It's very related, so for the sake of conciseness I suggest to edit your question accordingly. When extending the question, you should probably also untick the accept checkmark until your question has been answered completely. (To prevent frequent changes of the accepted answer, we usually wait for a few days before accepting. This also increases your chance of getting more alternatives and sometimes the really neat one just shows up late.)

comment TikZ picture wrecks page on Adobe Reader
@ThomasF.Sturm: A beautiful manual, indeed! One thing that caught my eye is the footnote on p. 192: "The reason is that I am to dumb to catch the current color at the split point. If you know the trick, let me know." Well, I don't know it either, but why don't you just ask for it here?

comment TikZ picture wrecks page on Adobe Reader
@ThomasF.Sturm: Yep, there is a price to pay – but if people have to get that thesis out of this #@$#& picky printer tonight, they usually don't mind it :-) However, an effective growth by factor 40 is pretty extreme, I never experienced that. Is your PDF basically a PDF shading test case?
