comment Include gridlines with attribute table shown on a map layout?
I agree with @ChrisW - that text could be coming from an ArcPy script making a very different answer - we need to know precisely how you placed it on your layout.

comment Excel file added to ArcMap to check Statistics has data aligned left instead of right?
It seems like at least two potential answerers have struggled to understand what you are describing so I think you should edit your question to describe the precise steps needed to try and reproduce this.

comment Compression Algorithms output files larger than the originals. Why?
I would encourage you to write up an answer to your own question on this one to help anyone who encounters the same mystery in the future.

comment Map automation to iterate through attribute table using ArcPy?
I think you should accept the answer to your first question and then edit out your second question because it should be researched/asked separately. The desirability of one question per question is mentioned in the Tour.

comment ArcGIS 10.2 Combine Two Feature Classes in One File Geodatabase with Attachment (Pictures)
Would it be possible for you to include a code snippet of your solution instead of just a link to GitHub, please? There is an edit button beneath your answer and a format {} button to make doing so easy.

comment batch save MXDs to group layer files using ArcPy
I don't think doing this will make much sense when an MXD has more than one data frame.

comment Wrong TimeStamp from GPRMC
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. I think you should edit your question to detail the steps you performed prior to seeing this error.

comment Finding number of trips in each segment of road
If there is an error then that precise error message would be useful to add into your question.

comment How to add custom basemaps to BasemapGallery
I think you should edit your question to reference what is different about it from gis.stackexchange.com/questions/54509/… so that we know you have already considered that Q&A.

comment How to access Amazon S3 bucket using python?
Instead of opening a series of questions on what appears to be the same issue can you please use the edit button on your question previous to this one to revise it with any additional details that you need to improve it. While that question remains unanswered there is the opportunity to heavily revise it.

comment Why does Select Layer By Location with SWITCH_SELECTION hang?
While this question is still unanswered is the ideal time to revise it with any additional details that you have learned by testing the advice offered as comments so far.

comment How to SWITCH_SELECTION after Select Layer By Location in ModelBuilder?
Asking this as a new question like you have done at gis.stackexchange.com/questions/146220/… is fine.

comment How to SWITCH_SELECTION after Select Layer By Location in ModelBuilder?
This answer looks to me like it should be accepted.

comment Switch selection in geoprocessing
I've made this a duplicate of your previous question which is unanswered, because it seems to relate to the same issue. Please try to avoid asking the same question as one that has previously been unanswered, because the earlier one can be overhauled with any additional details needed to answer it.

comment QGIS Server on Windows7 Step-by-step / Test wms by adding in QGIS?
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. I've edited your question to try and make what you are asking clearer. In particular you seemed to be addressing your questions to the author of that tutorial but your answer(s) may come from anyone familiar with it and WMS from QGIS Server so I redirected them to all potential answerers.

comment Producing a Tiled, Interactive Map from Illustrator Data
I neglected to welcome you to GIS SE yesterday! As a new user be sure to take the Tour because this site works a bit differently to discussion forums and other Q&A sites. If a question is put on hold, for any reason, please do not ask the same question again. That status indicates that we need you to revise it into something that is more focussed by using the edit button beneath it.

comment Export/Convert Layer to Shapefile within ModelBuilder
@ChrisA If processing multiple geometry types is a requirement then that is best made part of your question. However, to handle the simplest case first, I think you should edit your question to focus it on explicitly creating a model/script to convert just a single geometry type from KML to shapefile.

comment Temporal correlation of point data
Welcome to GIS SE! Would you be able to edit your question to include a single question mark somewhere within it to focus our attention to what your question is, please? This may help with structuring your question.

comment Access 2000 database via ArcCatalog displays decimals as integers?
Would you be able to include the precise steps that you performed in your question, please? That way it should be possible to repeat them without guessing.

comment Deleting values from PostgreSQL database in FME?
The undesirability of having question titles pre-fixed by what is effectively a duplication of the main tag has been discussed by the founder of Stack Overflow/Exchange at meta.stackexchange.com/a/10651/215590
