comment Pulling the boundaries from a Solidworks Profile in Mathematica
Which version of Mathematica are you using? In 10.1 I get this: i.stack.imgur.com/LHyj4.png -- which looks pretty good to me. Before attempting to improve this though I ask again: is there no format in common that you could export in?

Funny, I also thought it should have been StringMemberQ for consistency.

comment Built-in symbols that support operator form
@MichaelE2 I was just checking the complement and I conclude that they are all reasonable omissions, so usage messages seem a good start. Now, are there any known operator forms that are missing from this list?

comment Functions with Options
@ThomasH Sequence @@ is needed in some cases because not all functions accept a List of rules as options; it is included here as a matter of practice. I hope you found my answer useful? I agree that the documentation is lacking but that is one reason I am here. :-)

For what it's worth StringContainsQ is a slightly cleaner method. (+1)

comment make trace of a matrix listable?
@Guess I wouldn't jump to that conclusion in this case; I imagine the developers are well aware that this was a v1 function but someone probably told them to pretend that it was a new function in v9 as that has better publicity than "oops, we deprecated that but now see value in reintroducing it and applying it to this shiny new tensor stuff we'd like you to upgrade for" ;-)

comment Built-in symbols that support operator form
It is not only functions (Symbols) introduced in version 10 that may have operator forms; very old functions like Map do too. I do not know how to check a Symbol for such a syntax directly and I fear that the documentation is not consistent enough to use detection of the phrase "operator form" for robust determination.

@Guess The poor developers are run every which direction. Rube Goldberg would love the present state of affairs. :o)

comment Define parameterized function
Version 10 introduced "operator forms" that make this syntax native to a number of built-in functions.
