comment Create a CDF file with a plot that cannot be edited by double-clicking
Adding the Deploy->True option to Manipulate doesn't lead to the desired result and produces buggy behavior. Wrapping the Plot command with Deploy, however, does exactly what I need - thank you!

comment Why doesn't FullSimplify drop the Re function from an expression known to be real?
I got a response - see @Lev-Bishop's answer

This is exactly the answer I got from Wolfram support. It's pretty amazing that this quirky behavior actually has an explanation. I think that in the root of this is the fact the Mathematica can't have an expression of the form -(x+y) without automatically expanding it. Having some function in the middle like -Re[x+y] allows multiplying by -1 only once.

I submitted a bug report with Wolfram support, I will update here if there are news.

@b.gatessucks - yes that works, but you loose the functionality of the two-argument ArcTan, which takes into account which quadrant the point (x+z,y) is in.

@celtschk - you're right, the ArcTan is redundant

comment Is there a way to separate variables between multiple notebooks?
Yes! Thank you @rcollyer, I've been looking for a way to do this for ages!

comment Is there a way to separate variables between multiple notebooks?
Is there a way to get Mathematica to set the context of new notebooks to be private by default, instead of having to create a private context for every new notebook manually?

comment Is there a way to separate variables between multiple notebooks?
Followup question: is there anyway to make Mathematica set the context of new notebooks to be private by default, instead of having to create a private context for every new notebook manually?
