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 side by side minipage figures
The problem is that subfigure is not only old but an obsolete package which shouldn't be used anymore; one should use subfig or subcaption instead. There are already plenty examples using subcaption or subfig (for example tex.stackexchange.com/a/37597/3954), so I would suggest you to consider rewriting the answer so that it provides new information.

comment ToC entry formatting
@LatexQuest please see my updated answer.

comment ToC entry formatting
@LatexQuest impossible to tell without seeing the code you are using. How can we know where the line comes from if you don't provide the code that is responsible for it? In any case, loading the emptypage package \usepackage{emptypage} in the preamble might give you what you need.

comment A frame option in beamer that I can't figure out [h]
It all depends on how the options were implemented. In the most recent version of beamer (2013/12/02 3.33 in TeXLive 2014), the [h] option triggers the error message in my answer. beamer uses keyval to handle options, so it's possible that in previous versions, like the one you use, an unknown option was simply ignored, but in recent versions it will trigger the error message.

comment Redefine \part style
@LatexQuest problem 1) is perfectly related, as I said, so please compose a MWE illustrating the problem and add it as an edit to your question. Problem 2) is related, but not directly, since it's about the ToC entry formatting and this has nothing to do with the heading formatting (which is the issue discussed here), so the best thing to do is to open a fresh new question.

comment Redefine \part style
@LatexQuest Without code it's almost impossible to see what's causing the problem in 1). Please compose a minimal, complete document (like the one in my answer) illustrating the problem mentioned. For problem 2), since it's not directly related to the problem discussed here, please open a fresh new question; this is not a forum and we try to keep, idf possible, just one question per post.

comment A frame option in beamer that I can't figure out [h]
It generates an error: [h] is not a valid optional argument for frame.

comment Redefine \part style
@LatexQuest please make up your mind. It would have been better to mention the desired style from the beginning to avoid wasting time and effort. Of course, that style can be produced, but where should now the colon ":" be? Why are you duplicating your questions? Either wait for Herbert to add the epigraph in the other question or add the epigraph yourself. I see no point in having two questions answered by two willing to help people but duplicating effort and wasting time. Do you really want me to keep working on this answer?

comment Minipage with vertical and horizontal lines
@LatexQuest do you want the length of the horizontal line to automatically adapt to the length of the title?
15h
comment Redefine \part style
@LatexQuest I've updated my answer using now the titlesec package to achieve the desired formatting for the part headings; this formatting can also be achieved without titlesec but then the code will be longer. Is is something like that what you needed?

comment Tables and figures at the end of each chapter
@Ignacio yes, endfloat doesn't provide features for partial lists. I've updated my answer showing a possible solution to get partial list with the help of the titletoc package.

comment TOC entries in Small Caps
@Dan No need for that. ALl that is required is to load tocloft with the titles option (in the exmaple you won't see the difference since the defualt font doesn't provide the boldface smallcaps combination); I edited my answer adding a remark about this.

comment How to place an image in a chapter title (perfectly centered)
@JohnKormylo what egreg means is to use the optional argument for \chapter, as in `\chapter[My chapter title]{My Chapter Title\hfill\usebox{\tempbox}}.

comment Add logos in upper left and right corner of Malmoe theme in beamer
@CodyMessick Please see my updated answer. I changed the redefinition of the headline template to have the desired behavious for the navigation bars and also simplified the code (no use of TikZ now). Hope this is what you want to achieve.

comment Add logos in upper left and right corner of Malmoe theme in beamer
@CodyMessick I will correct the navigation bars. And yes, what you want is possible to achieve. Give me some minutes and I'll update the answer with a option that (hopefully) gives you what you want.

comment How to place an image in a chapter title (perfectly centered)
Is this just for one chapter or shall this be applied to all chapters?

comment Add logos in upper left and right corner of Malmoe theme in beamer
@CodyMessick The problem is a spurious \left\ string in the line \insertsubsectionnavigationhorizontal{.5\paperwidth}\left\{ \hskip0pt plus1filll}% ; it should be \insertsubsectionnavigationhorizontal{.5\paperwidth}{}{\hskip0pt plus1filll}% as in my original code. Let me know if this solves the problem.
