comment How to make a flowchart?
I would love to have graph gui functionality... And with the addition of all the mesh capabilities, I think that we are currently missing both 2d and 3d input on a Graphics space...

comment How do I identify the source of a “Tag times protected” error?
This is a perfect example of what we could get from code helping functions. For some time now that WRI talks about the eventual inclusion of code improvement suggestion tools. A typical example given is the suggestion of WL functions that could do exactly what the user is programming with a more complex code. But even simpler things can be included, like the small code of Mr. Wizard, but also, for instance, a warning check of "all" the things listed on our common pitfalls post. Is there a frontend framework missing for this purpose? I would even be willing to participate/$ on a crowdfunding...

comment What are the time and space complexities of Classify/Predict?
It seems that the plot images you added are cropped. We can see the title of the NaiveBayes, but there's no plot underneath (by the way: +1).

comment Partial Differential Equation in Parallel
one thing that can be addded is the fact that FE spreads over all cores available on a single machine. I can agree that, because of this single machine restriction, some applications are beyond reanosability (I myself frequently require 300 cores to remain within acceptable times). But even if NDSolve could spread over 300 cores, I don't think that the current practical use we can make of it, really requires more than, lets say, 24 cores. If it does, most likely, it is not the best tool for the job, because of other aspects besides the cores limitation... (but I may be wrong...)

comment Strange behaviour of NotElement in Reduce
@gwr unintuitive is a soft way of saying it... The documentation doesn't exactly say "restricts all variables and parameters... [except those that are obvious to be reduced before being considered by Reduce]. :)

comment What would you ask Mathematica to do on a big system?
Roman Maeder gave a talk on the last WTC, where he talked of some experiments WRI did on a super computer (youtube.com/watch?v=37XGwvZ8OtI). Although I think their config was an order of magnitude "above" yours, it might be interesting if you get in contact with him...

comment Interpolation function way off
Interpolation[pts, Method->FindFormula], on version 15.3.1, will probably work much better (for cases with a little more than three points...)!

comment Resolving my Entity* Crisis
Are the "inconsistencies" between XXXData and EntityValue just a result of the development history? I prefer coherence/consistency to backwards compatibility... (just a personal preference... although, based on the assumption that consistency gives a better product on the long run). If this can serve as a communication channel, and if indeed more coherence is possible, I would just like to to express my preference on this direction (we survived the graphics of v.6 or simpler things like the recent timeseries change..., I guess we can all survive entities, multiplegraphs, etc. "updates").

comment Docked cell showing keystrokes and mouse buttons actions
When you say that the OS snatches the event, I guess you are referring to OSX, right? Because when I use OSD, I can see the Ctrl+Z action.

comment Docked cell showing keystrokes and mouse buttons actions
Thank you. The way it is, it's hard to follow it. The action should probably be added to a list, that would Drop itself on timestamp or amount of actions (I don't know if OSD has a little more intelligence than that, like on word/space). Also, it seems that the modifiers are added to "stickies" that are no longer being pressed, which gives a wrong reading of what happening. Do you see it possible for the limitations you pointed out to be reduced in the future? Do you think that using an external library would be more complete (like retrieving the info from an "OSD" library into Mathematica)?

comment How to have an Input cell that doubles as an Output
@JohnFultz That's why I insisted with the stylesheet solution, because if there was a way to create a style that acted like that, it wouldn't feel odd, and the nb writer would just need to choose the input cell formatting as (standard) input or hybrid. From then on, no need to keep track of what would need to be closed or opened, etc. and WYSIWYG. But thank you for your comment, since, if you say it would be like reinventing the interface, then, I guess that is answered... and I thank all the answers for their imaginative tries, that for sure revealed interesting ways of text cells inline code

comment How to have an Input cell that doubles as an Output
@JohnFultz Imagine I have a 700 pages notebook (I have several of them). Many of the input should be printed as a report, but most of them do not need to show. I've been finding it difficult to keep track of this, either with the reverse-closing, or with hiding. A tagging system with some automatic parsing should be possible (for hiding, it's easy, but formatting is not great, deleting on duplicated nb is slow and odd). But I was wondering it there was some sort of hybrid cell type possible. Yes, from the answers, it does fill like reinventing the interface. But asking doesn't hurt... Right?
