- You have disabled some of the BBCodes in the plugin.

Plugin is adding own styling for the features it adds, but there is no way to make styles completely immune to other stylesheets or styles added by other plugins or theme. Many themes are adding styles that are very aggressive and they can be made to have higher priority in styling certain elements. In that case, a theme can cause issues with the plugin features styling.
The only solution is to identify the styles that are causing problems and add new styles to fix that. This has to be done for every theme that causes problems.
TinyMCE is part of WordPress and it comes with own styles. GD bbPress Toolbox Pro loads an additional stylesheet for TinyMCE to solve common issues when TinyMCE is used on front end. But, depending on your theme that might not be enough. Some themes are adding very aggressive styling that targets elements in TinyMCE too (usually buttons), and these theme styles are causing problems.
The only solution is to find what styles theme is adding to cause the problems, and add extra styles to fix that, but that has to be done for every theme individually. Most themes are using proper styling that is not causing problems.
Yes. You can use BBCode [scode] for that. You can learn more about this BBCode here:

It is a starting point in theme modification processes that will not affect parent theme, and all modifications will go into the child theme.

All files attached in the forum are saved into WordPress Media Library. But, if you want to see only attachments, you can’t do that directly, since Library show all files saved. Toolbox plugin has own panel called ‘Attachments’ where you can see only files uploaded as attachments. You have there: thumbnail preview, name of upload, topic and forum where the file is attached and date and time. This grid shows all files. You can delete or unattach files. If file is unattached, it will be removed from topic/reply it was uploaded to, but it will be still in the media library for some later use.
All files users attach to topics or replies are stored in media library. But, before that, they are all checked to determine if they are allowed (size, format). During upload various problems can occur to break upload or corrupt the files. All these problems and errors will result in file not being uploaded, but instead an error entry is generated and saved and later displayed with the topic or reply, or in a log.
All errors can be seen on the Errors Log panel in the Toolbox admin menu. This panel grid looks similar to Attachments panel, but it shows errors for every upload problem. This can help you to debug problems with upload process. But, with GD bbPress Toolbox Pro 3.3 and newer attachments process is improved to show validation before upload, so that oversized files or files with wrong file type are prevented from upload, and this will result in less errors during upload, and less errors displayed in the errors log.
To configure logging process, you need to open plugin Settings -> Attachments panel. There you have a options group ‘Errors Logging’. This has several options. First option is used to activate logging process. If this is disabled, no errors will be logged! After that you have options to control who can see the errors. This is related to displaying errors in the topic or reply to inform about the errors on the front end. Normal users or visitors can’t see these logs, they are reserved for administrators, moderators and topic/reply author, and in the settings group you can enable or disable this.
All attachments uploads are handled by the WordPress Media Library, and plugin uses native WordPress upload functions. When file is uploaded it will be available through Media Library. Consult WordPress documentation about Media Library requirements.
