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 beamer: frame without decorations, with custom margin
@Ingo I've provided another answer below using the native beamer lengths. I don't care about the bounty, though (and you've already awarded it), but you might be interested in knowing the "proper" lengths that beamer uses in a frame.

comment How to adjust spacing between caption and table / figure in beamer?
@cfr figure and table in beamer are not floats; the class redefines them so they don't float and it's perfectly safe to use them. This is, for example, the redefinition for figure in beamerbaselocalstructure.sty: \newenvironment{figure}[1][]{% \def\@captype{figure}% \par\nobreak\begin{center}\nobreak} {\par\nobreak\end{center}}

comment Drawback of using a using a new command instead of \begin{something}?
Perhaps better \newcommand\btkz[1][]{\begin{tikzpicture}[#1]} so \btkz has an optional argument to pass options to the tikzpicture.

comment how to implement something that looks like email in memoir class
@susie Ah, I see now what you meant by the optional argument for attachments; I am busy right now but as soon as I can I'll update the answer showing how to achieve this. Regarding the width of the box, I will also provide a way to achieve a narrower box (in the meantime, the enlarge left by=<length> and width=<length> are the options that allow you to achieve what you want).

comment Example from tutorial does not work: problem with edge style in graph
Yes. As I see from your .log file, your system uses PGF version 2.10; the newest version is 3.0 (that's the one in my system), so I suspect it's all about outdated packages. You could try updating PGF or, even better, your LaTeX system.

comment Why is my algorithm nowhere to be found in the PDF?
Perhaps the algorithm is there, but on a different page. Notice that algorithm is a float object, so your algorithm might be in a different page than the one you wrote the code in.

@pushpen.paul A follow-up one seems the best choice since the new issue is apparently independent from the issue discussed here.

comment Example from tutorial does not work: problem with edge style in graph
Hard to tell. Which code exactly is producing the error? The code you just posted doesn't produce errors in my system even if I uncomment the commented-out parts.

comment how to make “strike out” rotate with the rest of the figure?
@AbhimanyuArora Thanks you very much for accepting the answer! Regarding the other issue, I see that you've already opened a new question for this tex.stackexchange.com/questions/195355/… so perhaps someone will provide an answer there (I might have a look at it later).

comment Labeling a point at which a perpendicular is dropped
@user60254 you need the manual for [tkz-euclide](hhtp://www.ctan.org/pkg/tkz-euclide) which is a nice package built upon PGF/TikZ. Follow the link I provided and you'll find the manual for the package (in French) under the section "Documentation".
