comment Changing number within \numberwithin causes malfunction but no compile error
@kando -- no, this hasn't changed, and isn't likely to any time soon. the staff with the ability to make such changes is limited, and other projects have been assigned higher priority by management.

comment How to add \part only to TOC?
i haven't tried this, but i know that if an \addcontentsline is in the "main" file, just before an \include, it is deferred. the \addcontents (and therefore the \TOCpart here) needs to go inside that \included file; leave a comment in the main file saying you've done that.

comment Retaining chapter page headers with chapter*{}
arsclassica is based on scrreport, part of the koma collection, so i have added that identifier to the tags. it's my opinion that the failure to handle running heads properly for starred chapters is a design flaw; as such, it might profitably be brought to the attention of the arsclassica developer, whose address is included in the (very nice) documentation.

you can insert \markboth{Chap2} after the \chapter* line.

comment PDF font color appears grey instead of black
is this on screen, or printed on paper? (i ask, because the screen i work on fails to make almost anything appear solid black.)

comment What font size modifiers are available in LaTeX?
different document classes have different settings; the ams classes have a more nuanced set, for example, than the basic classes. (and this is not documented except in the ams classes themselves, as far as i am aware.)

comment how to align text in different uputs
\mathstrut is defined as \vphantom( so it has the height and depth of a simple math element.

comment Changing definitions in the class file
@masfenix -- setspace is posted on ctan and is included in tex live. it has much wider distribution than any thesis class, so it would be a very bad idea to modify it, especially without a name change.

comment Why don't book, report and article provide the same commands?
@cfr -- fair enough. i suspect that practices may differ by field. this question on the math.sx site has a good statement of the rationale in math: Original works of great mathematicians

comment Create a new command that makes a footnote
the document class amsart contains code for "thanks" footnotes associated with the author. they are unnumbered, but changing that to include a star shouldn't be too problematic.
