comment Techniques for Filtering the Attribute Table in QGIS's Print Composer
Some of the items are trails without names (small connection trails) that should be shown on the map but don't have relevant data.

comment Techniques for Filtering the Attribute Table in QGIS's Print Composer
I guess if the data I'm displaying isn't actually derived from the features themselves, I could always make another vector layer that just has points, is styled as invisible and just contains the data I want to display. A bit of duplication but it gets the job done, I suppose.

comment Why are font and line sizes different in QGIS's Print Composer and how do I normalize them?
One thing I just tried is setting the scale of the editing canvas to the same as the map in the print composer. Unfortunately they still don't match up.

comment QGIS Layer Properties Field Tab
I just was able to hide and re-enable a field by using the Fields tab and choosing Hidden and then Line Edit. Can you attach a screenshot of what you see? If you use the Table Manager plugin on you Layer, can you confirm the fields are still there?

comment Delete points on a polygon using QGIS
@Sylvester: Are you using Shift or Alt-click & drag to make sure nodes get added to your selection as you select more and more?

comment What is the best way to represent bridges using a point vector layer in QGIS?
No. I don't know how to do that.

comment What is the best way to represent bridges using a point vector layer in QGIS?
Thank you for the suggesting. It made me realize that I could potentially using line styling that draws the bridge the same way as the symbol I'm currently using. Currently I'm only encountering small bridges but if there were longer and/or non-straight bridges the point won't work. I'll have to give this a try!

comment Is there a way to render lines with a smooth (bezier) curves in QGIS?
I ended up playing with this plugin a little bit tonight and it actually worked better for me since I didn't have to use a GRASS layer and could just convert my current shapefile.

comment How to save project with data source path as relative in QGIS?
It does seem like Relative is now the default (hooray!) and previously it was Absolue.

comment Why does QGIS's Clipper tell me “Computed -srcwin falls outside raster size” and how do I address it?
Looks like the project was set to Google Mercator 900913 while my raster and vectors are at WGS 84. I switched the project to WGS 84 (with on-the-fly checked) and the clipper works now. Thanks!

comment What version of SVG should I be saving my images with for QGIS? Any particular options I should use/avoid?
Do you think I'd be better off trying something like Inkscape to export SVG?

So it seems like this is something you'd likely would apply once you've confirmed your lines are all correct and don't need further editing (unless you want to adjust all the additional vectors and then smooth it again)

comment Is there a way to render lines with a smooth (bezier) curves in QGIS?
Ah, that is answered here: "(Line) smoothing is a "reverse" process which takes as input a line and produces a smoother approximate of the original. In some cases, this is achieved by inserting new vertices into the original line, and can total up to 4000% of the number of vertices in the original. In such an instance, it is always a good idea to simplify the line after smoothing." from grass.osgeo.org/grass64/manuals/html64_user/v.generalize.html

Does this alter the original data or does it filter it in a way before QGIS renders it?

comment How do I make text show up on top of Markers using Carto in TileMill
This worked once I set text-allow-overlap to true as well. I updated your answer to reflect this. It's awaiting review.

comment How to only show labels for an arbitrary selection of items?
I'm only just getting started with GIS but have some database knowledge from doing software development. I suspect I will soon have a follow-up question about preserving the original dataset by creating a separate, client-specific table that is joined 1-to-1 with the original dataset and perhaps provided as a PostgreSQL View for transparency.

Thank you for this detailed and well written answer!

Also, this question ties into "When should I alter a data set and when should I copy it?" I suspect that's a much larger conversation though.
