comment Expanding a sequence inside a TikZ path
@MarkWibrow That makes sense, I just didn't the code args setting is a delimited macro (since it just says #1#2 and not #1#2.).

comment Expanding a sequence inside a TikZ path
Thanks, this is great! But I don't quite understand how the code args part works. Why does #1 get the first character while #2 gets the entire remaining path?

comment \savebox in page header with redefinable commands
@egreg Thanks for the tip. Where is this documented? What should one do if differently-sized headers are desirable?

comment Linux Libertine ligatures / T1
This is really neat! (not that I understand all of it), but doesn't really help me figure out a solution...

comment Linux Libertine ligatures / T1
@egreg Is that the expected behavior? I suppose not, since warnings are produced. In any case, it looks wrong since Libertine has its own braces...

comment Spacing & sizing with libertine and newtxmath
@user22108 Added MWE. It's very simplistic and exhibits the same spacing as my original screenshot.

@MarcvanDongen Is there a way I could actually produce two PDF files?

comment Translating custom \section format to titlesec
Great, thanks! But the titlesec documentation seems to claim that runin mimics the default behavior. So why wouldn't this work with runin?

comment unicode-math and various fonts fail at giving decent spacing in formula
Does anyone know when this fix will make it into an update that can be installed with TeX Live Utility / manager (depends on platform, I think)?

comment When and why should I use % !TEX TS-program and % !TEX encoding?
Note that some other editors respect this setting, at least the TS-program setting, such as TextMate.

This happens when using mathpazo only.

comment The right way to get sans-serif math?
That solution is helpful, but when I try it the uppercase Greek letters are not sans-serif... any ideas why?

comment Single paragraph with styling and larger \parskip
I guess it's fine; it just seemed like \parskip would be the natural thing to use for separating paragraphs.

comment The right way to get sans-serif math?
Is it possible to switch to cmbright or some other font for a certain portion of the document and then switch back?

comment What is the difference between \fontsize{…}{some length} and \linespread{some length}?
It seems that using both of them has a compounding effect; is one used in calculation of the other or something?

comment A line of text with proper positioning but consuming no space?
Even with \offinterlineskip the title is in different positions with/without the subtitle; I want it to stay in the same place. Putting it in a new row would work except then its proximity to the main title is constrained by the left and right cell heights.

comment A line of text with proper positioning but consuming no space?
@PeterGrill It should be below the main title, except I don't want it to take up any space (so maybe it will overlap with the \tabucline, I don't care about that).

comment hangindent + wrapfig = bad spacing?
Is there any alternative to wrapfig that would play nicely with \hangindent, or any alternative to hangindent that would play nicely with wrapfig?

comment How can I produce 3 centered columns, with the middle one fitting the width of its content?
Actually the answer on my other question has a good idea: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/75066/…

comment Small text in table does not recalculate line spacing
Thanks, this works great! It made me realize that I didn't even want to change the linespread in my table, I just needed to remove the {}.
