comment Creating and editing new stylesheets
I answered this way because, from your question, it seemed like you were not aware of the Quit command. Quitting and restarting used to be a slow and painful process with the first versions of MMA, partly because PCs were comparatively slow back then, but now it takes a few millisecs to restart the whole thing and have a clean slate, so why bother?

comment Where does Workbench deploy to?
I wish to report the following bug in WB: if you use WB and MMA on Windows on a non-English system, the "Application Data" folder has a different name (it gets translated). MMA takes this into account with BaseDirectory and UserBaseDirectory, but WB keeps using "Application Data" as the name of the folder with its BaseDirectory and UserBaseDirectory checkboxes. That's why I could not find my package at first. Maybe this bug exists also with other OS

thank you @Leonid.I have no experience with Ant (yet), but this is the second time you mentioned it, while answering to one of my questions. I guess it is high time to have a look at it :-)

comment NotebookFind and String Pattern Expressions
@StackExchanger I do not really see what kind of operations might require working on the .m file that cannot be done (better) on the .nb file. My philosophy is that whatever you want to do with a package, you do it on the .nb file

comment NotebookFind and String Pattern Expressions
@StackExchanger no, I never used this feature. As I explained I basically use MMA for notebook editing and thus also searching

WindowFrameElements->None is not fully docuemted, but is apparently the only way to have a really invisible window (except for the white background)

comment How to save data to a variable by clicking a button, using Widget Panel
I am building some rather complicated interfaces with just the standard MMA functionality. Never needed to use GUiKit. I suggest you follow Sjoerd advice/example

comment NotebookFind and String Pattern Expressions
You might consider my strategy of using the workbench together with the front-end editing which I described in mathematica.stackexchange.com/q/3941/137 (3rd answer). you would then do the string-pattern search on the autogenerated .m file in WB and then go to the corresponding place in the .nb file

comment Managing formatted usage messages in Wolfram Workbench
perhaps you might try this: create a "dummy" .nb (package) file containing just the Usage messages. Autogenerate the .m file and simply copy/paste the autogenerated Usage code cells into your real .m file.
