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 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 Sounds like a good idea.

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?

comment Is this possible to modifying the .sty file?
According to the package documentation, Xavier Danaux is responsible for the LaTeX code and Dave Gandy for the font and icons design; in the documentation you can find an e-mail address for Xavier Danaux, so you can e-mail him and kindly ask him to include the Skype icon.

comment Is this possible to modifying the .sty file?
Are you asking if someone is interested in modifying the file? What would be the purpose? What modifications are you interested in doing? Is this part of a project? Can you please elaborate?

comment Label part in title and TOC “First part”, “Second part”, etc
Now that I reread your question I have a doubt, you mean that \part{The title} should give you "First part: The title" both in the ToC and in the document (as in my answer) or is it something else what you are trying to achieve?

comment How can one make border of text for a figure?
@Poik in the same line as cfr's comment, it woudn't make much sense to place the border around the figure environment (since it is a floating object); you, however, can place the frame around its contents, and since a TikZ node can contain pretty much anything you want (except for some exceptions such as floats), then you can apply the approach in the answer. Perhaps if you tell us specifically what are you trying to frame, we could suggest you alternatives.

comment Problem with includestandalone of a tikz graphics
@dustin as I said, I am not familiar with \includestandalone, but I guess that (as percusse) mentioned in his comment, the @ character causes problems; apparently the necessary change of category code cannot be performed directly in the document.

comment Problem with includestandalone of a tikz graphics
@dustin the easiest location is your current working directory (the same where your .tex file is). Another possible location would be in a local TDS tree (this will depend on your OS, but there are some question in this site addressing this).

@user135328 You're welcome!

comment Problem with includestandalone of a tikz graphics
A quick workaround is to create a file mycode.sty starting with \NeedsTeXFormat{LaTeX2e} \ProvidesPackage{mycode} and then move there all the code I gave you (without \makeatletter nor \makeatother). Save this file somewhere TeX can find it (local TDS tree of current working directory) and then use \usepackage{mycode} in your document. (I didn't test it but it should work).

@dustin No idea, sorry. I've never used \includestandalone.

comment Circuitikz: arrows on the path and changing directions of arrow with variable resistor
@dustin the relevant code for the shape of bipoles is in .../tex/latex/circuitikz/pgfcircbipoles.sty; the styles are either in .../tex/latex/circuitikz/circuitikz.code.tex and/or .../tex/latex/circuitikz/circuitikz1.code.tex. Then it's just a mather of doing the necessary modifications; the code for the shapes uses the pgf layer syntax and not TikZ; fortunately, the commands used for the shapes are simple enough for me (I am not very familiar with the PGF layer).
