comment How do I NOT change the input/output number when editing?
Sorry @mete but your m.% in cell 144 is working as expected. It is equal to m.m where m is defined in cell 143. That is because % refers to the last output cell (the one with the highest number, so far).

comment Why is my answer being displayed with “Subscript^(0,1)[a,b]”?
In the edited text you say that you take the derivatve wrt b and that there is a a_b, but in the code I see the derivative rt s and e_s. So which is which? Please clarify and edit.

comment Google speech API . Speech to text recognition with Mathematica
@cormullion I am not so much interested in giving mathematica commands verbally, but rather to give commands to a generic app programmed in the WL (Wolfram Language). Besides the API might be hopefully programmed to search in a restricted vocabulary for specialized words

comment Google speech API . Speech to text recognition with Mathematica
@Nasser exactly! there are fantastic accessibility implications. I think/hope using this web service is as simple as sending a mp3 file to a URL, so I look forward to seeing some good answers

comment Making code version aware
Recently in Meta it was asked whether it would be appropriate to talk about Mathics. Several users (including me) thought it would be interesting, as long as Mathics language is compatible with Mathematica. So I just started the tag with this simple, but necessary question.

comment Usage of \[InvisibleApplication] and other related invisible characters
Thank you @Thomas , I am relieved. Some users, in some other branches of StackExchange, frown upon humor. Fortunately here at MMA.SE we have built a better community.

comment Reconstruct text pages cut by shredder
In the blockbuster movie "The tourist" they show a computer reconstructing a letter from burnt fragments. Even in the movie it was a difficult process. And ultimately it proved useless.

comment Best way to add KeyEvents and faster Quit
@Liam I do not understand what is it that you are not experiencing. I just described the standard way to add shortcuts, menus, ect (modifying KeyEventTranslations.tr) and suggested a quicker way to exit Mathematica session

comment How to migrate or export projects with Workbench
Thank you @Verbeia . Altough I accepted Leonid's answer, since it was precisely on target with my question, I very much appreciated your answer. I am very intrigued with this CVS technology, since it is clearly more advanced and dynamic. I will therefore post a specific question to allow you and others to better explain how it works within WB

comment How to migrate or export projects with Workbench
cont...@Leonid. Put it in other words: what is the "magic" behind export and import (versus plain file transfer) and how can one fake it.

comment How to migrate or export projects with Workbench
Thank you @Leonid, very complete answer as usual. Can we make things slightly more complicated? Suppose user A was in a hurry and did not know the exact export procedure. So she simply makes a plain copy of the project folder in the WB Base and hands this to user B. How can user B incorporate this project into her WB and make it work? user A uses Win XP and user B uses Win 7, so they have (slightly) different file paths. It is the documentation and paclet stuff that worries me mostly. cont...
