I have observed this exact behavior in 10.0.0, and just now in 10.0.1.0 (where I hoped it'd be fixed). For example, when I press CTRL+X to cut, I get this: If I just close the notebook, the bug persists. Closing the app entirely seems take care of it for a little while, and then it comes back for me, too. Not fun at all. :(

In version 10 you can change the font size of the Virtual Book by changing its Magnification but in previous versions of Mathematica the file FindFile["DocumentationNavigator.nb"] C:\Program Files\Wolfram Research\Mathematica\8.0\Documentation\English\System\DocumentationNavigator.nb (which is the Virtual Book Notebook) has the option Editable ...

I'm going to guess at what the OP wants. This code should reproduce the problem as I see it. SetDirectory[NotebookDirectory[]] p = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 4 Pi}] Export["test.m", p] RenameFile["test.m","test.txt"] The file "test.txt" is now a text version of a notebook file that has valid Mathematica code but an extension that will be misinterpreted by ...

So is the scenario that you have some notebook with input cells that look like data = myfunctionThatGivesALotOfData[...] which have produced output cells that look like {9.34648, ... ,7.6569} and you want to start a new kernel session and get the value of data ? If that's the case, you can just put your cursor at the beginning of the output cell(in ...

1. Is this a bug or a feature? My opinion is that it is not a bug. Different selections yield different inputs, so different outputs are at least possible. On the other hand, I'm not sure I would call it a feature. It strikes me that users will wonder why they cannot easily get an image of what they see. "Save Selection As..." seems to consistently show ...

An alternative to modifying DocumentationNavigator.nb using a text editor is to change the notebook's options programmatically. Locate and open the notebook: NotebookOpen[FindFile["DocumentationNavigator.nb"]] Get the list of open notebooks using Notebooks[]: nbks = Notebooks[] nbks[[2]] is the notebook object we want to modify using SetOptions ...

According to http://forums.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/2010/Dec/msg00797.html there is an option under preferences: Edit > Preferences > Tab Interface with two checkboxes: Enable smart quotes for normal text editing and when pasting As soon as I uncheck them both, the maze is gone: Ctl-2 then produces vertical double quotes (the right ones to be ...

It is not a parsing error. It is a minor code editor code-coloring bug. The have been a lot of them over various Mathematica releases. You will even see some in the Documentation Center examples. The one you report here was already corrected in V9 (the oldest version still available to me).

I use Mathematica 10 on two machines (Win 8 x64 and Win 7 x64) and this bug is present on both ones. As far as I can see, FrontEnd goes crazy when user changes keyboard language from English to some other (Russian in my case). From that moment, some keyboard shortcuts and corresponding functions work as intended only in Russian keyboard layout; shortcuts ...

Issue resolved with the recent update to Mathematica 10.0.1. The startup of Mathematica still takes quite a long time, but afterwards the notebook won't freeze anymore. 'Formatting notebook contents' only occurs on startup MMA and on closing a notebook.

Not sure chris has the right idea. I assume your file is not some exported data, strings, tables, etc. but rather a bunch of commands you basically want to execute from file, right? The Import command tends to work with the types of files produced by Export. It would probably treat your file as text. You can use the Read or ReadList commands. If you use ...

This change of behavior is not intentional, and will be fixed in the next release of Mathematica. It was, ironically, an unforeseen consequence of fixing another bug involving modifier keys. I regret the incomplete information given to you by Technical Support. They were answering the question of how to customize key bindings--a common request, but not one ...
