Useful notes for some of my answers:

CTAN lion drawing by Duane Bibby.

How do you accept an answer?](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/1852/3954)

minimal working example](http://www.minimalbeispiel.de/mini-en.html)

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

comment Subfigures appear on different lines when one doesn't have caption
You are explicitly controlling the figures' height, most probably this produces their combined width to exceed \textwidth, so an overfull box is produced and you get the undesired result. If you could post the actual images, that would really help us to provide the more sensible advise.

comment Weird overful vbox message when code and image are overlaid in beamer
@DavidCarlisle I was surprised when I noticed that \color will also prevent the problem. Tomorrow I will do a \tragingall experiment to see if anything shows up or perhaps you have a clue by now?

comment Weird overful vbox message when code and image are overlaid in beamer
@Masroor Reply to your first comment: Using \textcolor or \color right before \putimage switches to horizontal mode so the warning disappears.

comment Weird overful vbox message when code and image are overlaid in beamer
@Masroor Reply to your second comment: again, you will need to leave vertical mode: \begin{frame} \begin{overprint} \onslide<+> \leavevmode\putimage \onslide<+> \putcode \end{overprint} \end{frame}.

comment Icons in Table of Contents
@LarryTate When you use \iconsectioninToC, the section entries in the ToC automatically will get an associated image. To return to the standrad settings (with no images added), you need to use \stdsectioninToC.

comment Editing template title page
\par ends the paragraph; since you used a font switch (\Large), using \par before closing the group makes sure that the right baselineskip is applied for the last line; perhaps you don't notice the effect in your specific case, but it's always required to use \par in a situation like yours to get the proper spacing between lines.

comment Loops of different sizes
@QuiqueRuiz You're welcome! (1) The distance key sets the values for min distance and max distance which control the diatnce between the start and target coordinates (for a complete description, please refer to pages 755 and 736 of the pgfmanual). (2) Use the overlay key for the outer loop, as in \arrow[ out=130, in=50, loop, distance=1.5cm,overlay] (in my exmaple code). If this doesn't solve the problem, the best thing to do would be to open a fresh new question with a MWE illustrating the undesired behaviour.

@A.Ellett Please see my updated answer (I had forgotten the required \else so the drawing is made after the first run and the closing \fi).

@A.Ellett I added the code that will prevent the error in the first run using your second code.

comment How to get tikzmark to work
@A.Ellett yes, there is. Give me some seconds and I will add this to my answer. Regarding the .south operation, take into account that using \tikzmark doesn't really produce a node, so those modifiers won't work.

Inside floats, \label must always be used after \caption.

comment How do I use \bmatrix in a subfigure?
You need to specify a width in the mandatory argument for each of the subfigure environments; something like \begin{subfigure}[b]{.6\textwidth}...\end{subfigure}. It is not clear to me, however, why are you using subfigure for each matrix.

comment Problem with verbatim in a beamer frame
Yes, you're right. Both verbatim and semiverbatim are very basic verbatim environments; an option using the powerful listings package could be a better possibility here.
