comment Centering subfloat caption with subfig package
Yes, I agree that the output of your workaround looks perfect. That is why I also have been using that workaround for years now. I really am just trying to understand this footnote in the subfig documentation.

comment Centering subfloat caption with subfig package
Yes, thanks. That has been my workaround for a few years now. I am specifically wondering about the question I asked.

comment TikZ: How to place two decorations in opposite directions
I have 2.10. I plan to update this summer, so I will just accept your answer and be patient until it will work for me :)

comment TikZ: How to place two decorations in opposite directions
Even if I start with my code and just change \arrow to \arrowreversed, the output is not correct. What a disaster this turning out to be.

Or maybe this is the problem. If I change \arrowreversed back to \arrow, it doesn't compile because it doesn't like diamond[fill=white]. Why is that?

comment TikZ: Unexpected difference between \draw and — vs \path and edge
@Werner I don't want to update my TeX distribution. I want to know what Paul means by "a current TeX distribution".

@Paul What is your definition of "a current TeX distribution"?

comment How to fully justify tabular columns
Ah, I figure out a good workaround. As stated here, "An \extracolsep{wd} command in an @-expression causes an extra space of width wd to appear to the left of all subsequent columns, until countermanded by another \extracolsep command." Thus, multiple uses of \extracolsep{wd} with varied wd parameters achieves my desired behavior.

But @{\hspace{\fill}} doesn't work. Why not?

comment How to fully justify tabular columns
Very good. Your first suggestion using \extracolsep{\fill} is closer to what I really want. This command sets the space between all pairs (of adjacent) columns. Is there a way to set different values between different pairs (of adjacent) columns?

comment How to fully justify tabular columns
@Johannes_B No. An X column is syntactic sugar for p{<some value>}, which specifies how wide the column in question should be. I want to modify the space between columns.

comment Hiding the title of the bibliography
This solution just removes all section titles after the \renewcommand. What if you have an appendix after the bibliography?

comment Modifying whitespace before and after list separately using enumitem package
@Bernard I looked here for some standard/default amount of vertical space to add and \baselineskip seemed to work the best. Your \midskipamount seems to add less than the default amount of space. Do you have other suggestions? Preferably I would use the same commands that would have normally been used had nosep not been used.

@StevenB.Segletes Yes, of course. I included the image of my MWE but forgot to include its source.

comment Double tagged equations?
Between binary operators, one can use \dotsb, where the "b" stands for "binary". See: tex.stackexchange.com/a/122493/6376

comment TikZ: computation in node name
Actually, there probably is NOT a way around the naming overlap from nested functions since LaTeX only has global variable names. To avoid the name collision, I now start every variable name with the function containing it.

@percusse Oh, yes, sorry. Added the missing link.
