comment Help needed to create a relatively complex page for the cover of a textbook
@KolaB. I only remembered the tiger at the last minute. Plus, I guess it is better to have rectangular things for the examples on the left?

comment Help needed to create a relatively complex page for the cover of a textbook
If I miscounted the number of people, change 13 to whatever is appropriate. Your images will also probably end up wider, so I tried to allow for that.

comment Help needed to create a relatively complex page for the cover of a textbook
Don't create it in the same file as your book, though. Even if you do it in LaTeX. Either create it and input the code or, more straightforward, create a separate PDF and include that as its own page. That way you can set the margins etc. however you like and not worry about them being different. (Covers aren't meant to be laid out in the same way as pages inside the book, so the usual reasons to keep everything together are reversed in this case.)

comment Fixing a LaTeX thesis style issues with formatting section headings
Welcome! Oh, dear. You are plagued by both typographically uglifying rules and horrible inherited code. You might try using titlesec. It will give you a lot more control over the headings. I don't get on with it myself and it may disagree with other aspects of the code you've got, but many people swear by it and it is at least worth a shot. If it works, it will be a lot cleaner and easier. If not, you won't have lost much.

comment Grouping two blocks in a container horizontally within a diagram
Very handy! You could do it otherwise, but you'd have to measure everything, I think. Or arrange things in a box and then place them or draw things in a different order. Or... lots of possibilities, but less simple.

comment Does LaTeX _cache_ PDF images that were trimmed with `includegraphics[trim …]`?
No (could guess but insufficient info to be worthwhile). No. No.

comment Referencing locations within a text box
Please provide a complete minimal document rather than a mere fragment of pseudo-code, which is not terribly useful to anybody who wants to understand your question, reproduce the problem and see whether they might be able to help. (Solving problems is fun. Setting them up is boring.) You can probably use tikzmark's subnodes. The documentation is good. You just load as a library and are good to go. subnodes are especially easy to reference, so you should find it straightforward. I'd demonstrate if there was an example but don't feel like starting from scratch now. (Soembody else may.)

Welcome! Do C and D have the same width?

comment Fancy Section headers
That's great. It is just easier for other people to help if they don't have to read through a bunch of stuff which isn't relevant to find the bit you want help with. Sometimes people are entirely lost, but not usually with a reputation of 2k+ ;).

comment Combining Tikz concepts/librarys to draw a complex picture with relative alignment/distances
You seem to want a solution to a problem with various ill-specified parameters. I think the issue may be that you just haven't thought about what you want, where what you want needs to be specific in input you expect to give for particular output. What exactly should LaTeX do? Do you have an algorithm for solving the generic problem you want solved? There are various ways this might work. I can imagine some of them. But I suspect that any answer I gave won't be the one you imagined. It won't be your dream and so will be unacceptable. Remember, you need to implement it. Be realistic.

comment Combining Tikz concepts/librarys to draw a complex picture with relative alignment/distances
I think at this point one of two things is happening. Possibility 1: we just do not understand what you are trying to do. Since you've asked several versions of several questions about this and people have tried several things in several answers to several understandings of each of those versions of each of those questions, I doubt that a new question which seems to start from scratch with no code is likely to clarify things. Possibility 2: you might want something which just cannot be done. Possibility 1 seems definitely true: we don't get it. Possibility 2 may also be true: I'm not sure.

Sorry, but what does all that have to do with the question? Can you please isolate the relevant code?

You didn't ask this question twice under different accounts, did you, by any chance?

comment How set alternatives glyph in luatex or latex?
You don't want to know about this in the case of type1 fonts? Just for clarification. And are you also interested only in XeTeX/LuaTeX as opposed to pdfTeX?

comment How set alternatives glyph in luatex or latex?
If you provide a minimal working example, people may be more inclined to vote for it. At least, that is true of me so at least one person will be more inclined to vote for it. (Although seeing somebody ask for people to vote for it makes me less inclined to vote for it, so there you go.)

comment How to place the caption of an image under the image self in a Report documentclass
@Kyle This is why a question always (almost-always) should have a minimum working example which can be used to reproduce the problem.
