It's not that easy to do the untangling even manually though. – Szabolcs

Maybe you could turn it into a puzzle and let other people do the untangling :-) – Heike

I could make a web based game, and feed all my graphs to the visitors.

comment Automatically lining up two images that have some common elements
Interesting question. I've done this specific operation by hand before (for full color images rather than text) and I think subtle distortions in the scans will require compensation in the alignment, especially with details as fine as text. I mean that a simple translation will not suffice, and you will need to "warp" the background image to produce a perfect alignment. Many of the image processing tools in v10 are new to me so I'm not sure where to start. Is there a function that is suitable for localized warping?

@eldo You could use Primitives to produce any shape you like. Unlike other answers this one addresses the question in the Title: change the inner color of markers, not merely making centers white. (I wasn't aware of the theme "OpenMarkersThick" when I wrote this answer or surely would have included it.) I expect that chuy will earn the Accept but I don't think this is a bad answer.

@Öskå Go ahead and edit. I'll probably refactor to make it more terse, as is my style, but I'm out of time now. See you later. :-)

comment GUI->Text code conversion
@Qwerty It is a text format; you could rename .m to .txt if necessary. However I suggest that you do not as Mathematica expects .m and and will use that by default in some cases. How are you planning to use the contents of the file? You should be able to Get the file directly.
