comment Need to plot binomial distribution probabilty function
You can define function like: w[m_, n_] := m!/(n! (m - n)!) then w[13, 5] evaluates to 1287, which is equivalent to Binomial[13, 5]. It is usually best to make all variables parameters as I did here rather than relying on a global value for e.g. m. Also note that I used lower-case letters as capital letters may be reserved (System symbols).

comment How to solve the heat flow PDE for the constant source term
@MichaelE2 I see that this question has four close votes. Are you planning an answer? If not do you agree with the closure?

comment Color degrades when using Copy As Bitmap
@Oleksandr Not all RGB profiles are recognized by Windows as valid monitor profiles; I believe the file must be .icm not .icc though I have not explored it further. Why should Mathematica be transforming on either copy or paste? I think the RGB triplets should not be touched, and the monitor profile should be used for display only should it not? This is how Windows itself works which is why Print Screen doesn't change anything, copy or paste.

comment Color degrades when using Copy As Bitmap
@Oleksandr I was not able to set the ICC profile as monitor colorspace because it is not recognized as a valid monitor profile. However following your idea I set a different monitor profile and repeated the experiment. This resulted in degradation in a different pattern than the one shown above indicating this is related if not directly causal. Why would (or rather should) Mathematica be changing the data based on the monitor profile? This feels like a bug to me but I need confirmation.

comment Color degrades when using Copy As Bitmap
@Oleksandr I feel ignorant; I did not know that Mathematica had its own ICC profile. Please tell me more or give me the appropriate documentation link.

comment Keep leading/trailing zeroes (like Defer except with numbers) in a given number
@inkyvoyd How would you distinguish this input from normal numbers? Adding two characters " is pretty concise already is it not?

comment Typesetting a formula
I voted to leave this open because I don't see an answer for the "Why is that?" part of the question.

comment Keep leading/trailing zeroes (like Defer except with numbers) in a given number
@inkyvoyd I am semi-inactive on Stack Exchange at the moment, just doing moderator duties, but I'll try to look at that example tomorrow. What (in my opinion) you are missing is that Mathematica directly interprets the input 00001.343200 as 1.3432` -- these are literally identical as far as the system is concerned. So if you need to preserve exact input forms it is better to use the String expression type, i.e. "00001.343200". If you describe what you wish to accomplish people can probably help you find a solution, even if it's not exactly what you had in mind.

@Olivier You're welcome. I note however that you posted a second comment as an answer; you need to register an account to make full use of this site. You should then use the contact form to request a merge of that new account with your old one.

comment Remove tick labels, but retain tick marks in RegionPlot (and related functions)
@Ghersic That has already been noted in 10.0.2, but thanks for confirmation that the situation has yet to be improved in 10.2.0.

comment Selecting last partition in integer partition
@Shutao I think you just need to remove the empty lists {} from your result? Does this yield your desired expression? Partition[pts, {3, 5}, {2, 4}, {1, 1}, {}] /. {} -> Sequence[]

comment Selecting last partition in integer partition
@ShutaoTang I am taking a break from answering questions as I have been feeling "burned out." I don't want my participation here to become a drudgery. Nevertheless your apparent problem seems straightforward enough so I'll try to work something up.

comment Front end responds slowly when writing
I had this problem once and I linked it to an anti-virus program I had installed. The Front End apparently writes to disk with every keystroke and this particular AV did not handle that well. (I cannot remember which one it was now.) Try turning off anything that is tracking disk writes and see if that solves your problem.

@shrx I'd use a "skip rule" like {x_List :> x, x_ :> {x}}, or Except: x : Except[_List] :> {x}

comment How to sort arguments of Times in nonstandard order?
@IstvánZachar does reorderIstván[expr, par] /. x_Symbol :> RuleCondition@If[Context@x === "Global", f@x, x]` give what you want or are you looking for something else? (See mathematica.stackexchange.com/a/29319/121 if you are unfamiliar with RuleCondition.)
