I'm glad you asked this question. As it turns out I was wrong :)

comment why tcolorbox example on pp. 345 doesn't work
@egreg since tcolorbox internally loads xcolor, this \documentclass[table]{article} is alos enough. You should turn your comment into an answer.

comment How to get rid of extra indentation before table in \extratile of class scrreprt?
As always, extra spurious blank space. Place % right after the brace in \extratitle as in \extratitle{%

comment I want to merge my PhD Research Proposal code with pgfgantt, wrap text in label
@MickyK Please process the document with pdflatex, not with latex; since fancytooltips are being used, processing with latex will trigger errors.

comment pgfgantt, wrap text in label
@MickyK Without further information, nothing can be done. Please feel free to open a new question, providing there a MWE allowing us to reproduce the problem.

comment How do I force a figure on top of a line, and place it exactly where I want on the page?
And do you want this to appear on every page of your document? I mean, if you're going to have chapters, for example, should it also appear on the firat page of chapters (those pages normally have a different page style).

comment How to typeset uneven length captions?
@marcellinus12 Yes, the font has to be set according to the one used for subcaptions and the breaking point has to be carefully chosen. I attempted to use \vboxes and \vsplit to automate the process, but couldn't find a satisfying result.

comment How to typeset uneven length captions?
I added the answer, but, if you don't mind, I'd like you to wait some time before accepting it in wait of other possible alternatives to treat this situation.

comment How to typeset uneven length captions?
\caption*{varius tincidunt. Curabitur varius diam metus, sit amet elementum nulla eleifend at. Nulla vitae enim ac urna tristique tristique et at nibh. Morbi urna velit, sollicitudin sit amet vehicula eget, luctus at urna. Cras at rutrum diam, vel viverra erat.} \caption{Figures of uneven caption length.} \end{figure} It should be just one code, but it was too long for comments.

comment How to typeset uneven length captions?
So you want something like \begin{figure} \centering \begin{subfigure}[t]{0.6\textwidth} \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{example-image-a} \caption{Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Quisque id ligula a lacus interdum ullamcorper a eu eros. Pellentesque eu interdum nisi. Integer ut dui eros. Nulla porta leo consectetur risus} \label{fig:gull} \end{subfigure}\hfill \begin{subfigure}[t]{0.3\textwidth} \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{example-image-b} \caption{Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.} \end{subfigure}\vskip-\abovecaptionskip

comment How to typeset uneven length captions?
I see. Would reducing the width for the image with the longer caption and increasing its caption width be a possibility?

And placing one below the other instead of side-by-side?

comment Correct dynamic transparencies of blocks in beamer using \pause and \onslide
@Rackbox Another option would be to use highly dynamic: \setbeamercovered{highly dynamic} or declare your own grade of opaqueness: \setbeamercovered{still covered={\opaqueness<1>{25}\opaqueness<2>{20}\opaqueness<3>{15}\opaqueness<4->{1‌​0}}, again covered={\opaqueness<1->{15}}}

comment Correct dynamic transparencies of blocks in beamer using \pause and \onslide
@Rackbox but that's what the dynamic effect does: the "further" an element, the dimmer it appears. If you don't want this, don't use dynamic, but just transparency as in \setbeamercovered{transparent}

comment Correct dynamic transparencies of blocks in beamer using \pause and \onslide
@Rackbox I just added some more texts in my updated answer and I don't seem to see anything wrong (see the animated image); is there something still wrong?. By the way, I produced the .gif using ImageMagick and convert -verbose -delay 150 -loop 0 -density 300 a.pdf a.gif

comment How to align a listing like itemize on the left and some graphics on the right in latex?
@Murat Sure; my code compiles without problem. In your case the problem might be a clash between packages providing \Square; I used the bbding package and you must be loading another one also providing the symbol, so simply use your package and don't load bbding. Since you didn't gave us a complete example in your question, I loaded a package providing the \Square command; that's one of the reasons why always posting complete minimal documents is useful.

comment Moderncv change date font
I'm afraid this is not what the OP wants. He/she wants to change the font for the date column in cventries.
