Have you tried \renewcommand\footnote[2][]{\relax}?

comment How to suppress footnotes in pdf output?
Welcome to TeX SE! 'doesn't work' isn't much to go on. Could you be more specific e.g. 'when I use this my computer orders pizza at my expense and the guinea pig goes on strike'. (Admittedly this seems rather unlikely or you'd probably have mentioned it but you get the idea.) Do you get error messages? Or do you just get footnotes?

@SeanAllred I see. That was, in fact, my vague association with 'MS Paint' but that is from years ago and I don't remember ever actually using it or seeing it used, so I thought it might have, well... evolved.... And I consider myself to have a prejudice against all things M$ and, hence, think I should give them the benefit of the doubt whenever possible. (And the 'possible' constrains the opportunities for open-mindedness, so it seems best to make the most of those there are.) The shallowest learning curve is probably Google Image search ;).

@SeanAllred GIMP is nice. (I've never used MS Paint so I can't say how they compare.) I find it more intuitive than Inkscape. (I know they do different things and Inkscape is for vectors - but GIMP can do really well for lots of purposes. Bitmap often works just fine.)

comment Naming Externalized Images via MD5 Sum
I've always thought it would be handy if I could base the filename for the figure on the filename for the code for the figure since I usually have that separate and use \input. But I can't even figure out a way to do that.

comment How can I override geometry's scale in the preamble? (E.g. if a class or package has set a default using geometry.)
@touhami Too bad, though. I've just been experimenting and getting weird results...

@touhami It causes problems if you set dimensions manually rather than using \geometry. If you use that setting before loading the package, it causes no problems as it has no effect. If you use it afterwards, geometry doesn't know you've changed the text height and doesn't take that into account. In any case, that is not the same as scale=.85.

comment Adding a rectangular overlay with tikz to table
Take a look at the tikzmark library. But I'm not clear if that's the problem or if you run into some different difficulty.

@touhami But that will mess up geometry's calculations, won't it? That is, if you're using geometry, you want geometry to have all the information and create problems if you specify dimensions manually.... Plus, that is not equivalent to scale=.85 in any case.

@touhami You're right, though. It does work (in that it definitely has an effect) and there is no error even though the docs say that the command isn't even available until after \begin{document}....

@touhami It is not supposed to work in the preamble... But, in any case, it will wipe any other defaults I've set which is not good.

comment How can I override geometry's scale in the preamble? (E.g. if a class or package has set a default using geometry.)
@HarishKumar Yes. I already am. I don't want to overwrite all the default settings, though. I was wondering about putting the \geometry in the package/class into the \AtEndPreamble hook. Presumably, that way, any scale I set in the preamble should 'stick' since the later call won't override it. However, I'd have to separate out the different geometry settings else I wouldn't be able to override the non-sticky ones. It is kind of annoying....

comment How to set distance between individual siblings in a tikz-qtree tree?
I would have thought a schemata ideal for that kind of case but it is your diagram ;). You can set up MiKTeX to install packages on-the-fly. Unlike TeX Live, I don't think it installs a fully-stocked pantry of packages by default.

If you installed the package, you don't need to copy it to your working directory. In fact, it would be better not to do that as you'll miss out on any bug fixes or updates. I'm not clear whether this is a satisfactory solution for you or whether you still have a question. If this is part of your question, you should edit your question and add it rather than posting it as an answer. Could you clarify? Does this answer solve the problem for you?

Welcome to TeX SE! If you've just started, I would really recommend concentrating on text and equations first. I wouldn't attempt diagrams until you are at least comfortable with the basics.
