Jun 29 '18 at 23:16 comment added user121799 Thanks a lot! That was really helpful! And yes, forests are really complicated.
Jun 29 '18 at 23:13 comment added Andrew Stacey @marmot forests are really complicated. Using a subnode means that it avoids adding more layers of complication as a subnode is part of the current tikzpicture. That's the best I can do in a comment! If you have a particular case you're trying to understand or extend, ask a fresh question about it. "What's going on here?" is a perfectly valid type of question.
Jun 29 '18 at 22:12 comment added user121799 I see. That's really helpful! Is it easy to understand why your nice trick of remembering nodes works e.g. here, where the normal remember picture hackery fails? (Sorry for just asking, it is perfectly fine if you decide not to answer. ;-)
Jun 29 '18 at 22:05 comment added Andrew Stacey @marmot thanks for the kind words. The purpose of every subnode/.try is to allow you to define a style every subnode which gets executed by that command (the /.try means that if that style doesn't exist, it gracefully fails). To invoke it, do something like every subnode/.style={draw}. Since a subnode is only a pseudo-node, not every node option works for it. I suspect that text width might be one of them. The point of subnode is to put a box around existing text so it can't do much with that actual text.
Jun 29 '18 at 21:04 comment added user121799 I really like your tikzmark package! I'd like to ask a simple question: what precisely does \tikzset{every subnode/.try,#1}% in the definition of \subnode do? (Naively I'd have thought it allows me to pass options like, say, text width to the subnode but that does not seem to be the case, or am I doing something stupid?

Fixed bug in coordinate declaration
Mar 31 '12 at 8:13 comment added Andrew Stacey @PeterGrill take a look at tex.stackexchange.com/a/46471/86 to see why I made this change in the code.
Mar 30 '12 at 23:03 comment added Peter Grill It will be interesting to see what applications of this enhanced ability to access the \tikzmark nodes before they are placed will come up.
Mar 30 '12 at 23:00 comment added Peter Grill Thanks for such a detailed explanation. After reading it the third time it is sinking in (that's not to say that your explanation is not good, just my lack of knowledege about the inner workings of tikz). I have come to the conclusion that this is really only complicated as it is not know where the origin is, otherwise a simple (0,-\paperheight) -- (\paperwidth,0) would have achieved the line from bottom left to top right that I wanted.
