comment How to add an entirely new menu
I feared that. Still..is it possible to force MMA to read and apply a new MenuSetup.tr file during a session? maybe by restarting the fron-end?

comment Best way to add KeyEvents and faster Quit
I like the FrontEndExecute argument. TOTALLY undocumented, lol. Can the same thing be done with the KeyEventTranslations ? Perhaps with some equally undocumented AddKeyEvent command?

@IstvánZachar it works the same even if you do not put the AddMenu string. I took it off

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)
