Useful notes for some of my answers:

The demo option for graphicx simply replaces actual figures with black rectangles; do not use that option in your actual document.

comment Tikz plot polar equation with foreach
@Luke You're welcome! Regarding your comment on visible on, you're right. The style makes the elements always present, but only visible on the specified slides. The example you linked doesn't use this because there the bounding box is always large enough to contain the elements drawn, so there's no risk that new elements will make the image "jump"; in your concrete example, without something like visible on, the bounding box would change from slide to slide causing undesired "jumps". \tikzset is where the styles (in particular, visible on) are defined.

comment Caption for align environment
@Werner but that's not what I meant; using no container can produce odd results (not errors, but certainly problems). I wish I could find the relevant thread :(

comment Caption for align environment
The use of \captionof without a proper container (such as center, minipage or similar) can produce unexpected results; I can't find now the question in this site illustrating this in a spectacular way (the problem appeared several pages after \captionof had been used without container!).

comment Drawing vertical hierarchical n-ary tree in tikz
@cfr No problem, but perhaps a comment's space is too short for an explanation; the specification I gave is basically \noexpand\path[\forestoption{edge}] (!u.parent anchor) -- +(0,-13pt) -| (.child anchor)\forestoption{edge label}; this uses the my specification uses the lower level commands \forestove which sets the options for the current node. In fact, I am considering that it would be "more natural" to use the code with no low level commands?
