No, that's not me in the pic, that's Mr. Dave Brubeck. Yes, I like jazz.

comment Selecting items in a list based on multiple tests
Have you seen Cases or DeleteCases? This should work there: _?(-10<#<3 &). It would be better for you if you could provide a working example of those values for us to help you further

I wonder why I even use the replacement function in my answer...

comment Edit a Mathematica plot in Illustrator, missing font problem
Just a heads up: In Win8, this worked by exporting all the fonts in the Type1 folder into C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CC (64 Bit)\Support Files\Required\Fonts. I could not find the path that @jens provided in the answer

comment Manipulating a sublist based on position
@Artes eheheh that was just a dumb idea on how I wanted it to work :P Also, I wanted to have written list/.#[[1]] & -> #[[1]] - 1 &. Maybe I should delete that part completely?

comment Manipulating a sublist based on position
Your first answer, together with @andre's answer, seems to be the most robust since I can specify the position to to the subtraction, without having to do it only in the 1st position.

Nevermind, I guess that would have to be something similar to what @andre answered

comment Manipulating a sublist based on position
I had been trying to play with replacement rules but to no avail, but now I see why. Btw, would there be a way to specify the position in which the replacement would have to be made? e.g. if I wanted to apply the rule to each element in position 37 of sublists with 100 elements?

Could you guys please post these as answers? Although they are somewhat redundant (given that they all should solve the problem), it is nice to see for others to see the various possibilities to solve this
