comment Colored marks appearing in notebook input text?
This happens to me primarily when working with Cloud functions. Saving and reloading is a workaround.

Yes, I use that of course, thank you. Just left it out of the question for brevity, probably too much brevity. :) Thanks again.

Both your and Michael's solutions are perfect. I particularly like how this one requires fewer edits to the example code, and the self-TrackedSymbols trick is an interesting one to know for the future. Thanks!

I don't know DynamicWrapper very well but it seems to essentially refresh every second? For example running counter = 0; Button[DynamicWrapper["hi", counter++], Print@counter] and pressing the button gives large numbers.

Also, I like the Button& approach, but when I try Manipulate[Dynamic@output, {{output, "start",}, Button["do", output = "Paused..."; FinishDynamic[]; Pause[3]; output = "done"] &}] it never displays "Paused"

I'm trying to understand your first one. The Pause was just to represent some long computation. Where would I put the bulk of such code in your example?
