comment Displaying a locator that moves smoothly and updates some dynamic variables
Thanks a lot! Your solution is simple, elegant and does work, so I will use it. However, I am still not sure I understand. When in my example I remove Setting, there seems to be no conflict between Manipulate and LocatorPane. The pt coordinates are OK and only 'z' is wrong. What seems to be crucial is having the calculation of xp, z, and the text string within the same Dynamic wrap. I took your code and changed DynamicModule back to Manipulate and it works perfectly as well!

comment How do I remove an entry from the Format > Stylesheet menu?
sorry, my previous comment broke. I continue: I found my stylesheet files in the directory C:\ProgramData\Mathematica\SystemFiles\FrontEnd\StyleSheets. Removing these files removes the corresponding entries from the Format/StyleSheet menu - this is what I wanted! However, this ProgramData directory does not appear on the list generated by your first command!? $UserBaseDirectory, $BaseDirectory, and $InstallationDirectory point somewhere else.

Thanks! The problem is solved but I still do not understand it. I run your second command to get the list of all stylesheets and I see that my own styles are sitting in the

comment How do I remove an entry from the Format > Stylesheet menu?
No, I wanted to remove the stylesheet I created and installed. I did it by selecting Format/Edit Stylesheet, modifying the some styles and clicking the Install Stylesheet button. My new style appeared on the menu list and the corresponding nb file in the $UserBaseDirectory.... Removing the file from this directory does not remove the entry form the list and does not remove the style. For the solution see below

comment How to make the docked cell and the navigation toolbar in the Slide Show?
@Mike thanks! I knew that one can dock a few cells but I could not find how to call for this SlideShowToolbar. Now I have found it! It is given by FEPrivate`FrontEndResource["FEExpressions", "SlideshowToolbar"] So my problem is solved.
