comment Does PrivateFontOptions -> {“OperatorSubstitution” ->False} fail in version 10?
@AlexeyPopkov - I wish, but we have tested this extensively (for three years! :-) and (1) EPS doesn't actually work that well on Windows and if you then convert the Word/PowerPoint to PDF, the whole graphic shows as a black box. Also EPS doesn't embed fonts the way PDF does. Meanwhile (2) the powers that be at work have deemed the output quality from PNG to be unacceptable, given that they sometimes need to adjust the size when including it in PowerPoint, depending on how many footnotes. Given that EMF works in v9, they probably just won't upgrade.

@Thomas - would you mind checking how EMF format exported plots work in Word/PowerPoint on a computer without the Mathematica fonts installed?

comment Does PrivateFontOptions -> {“OperatorSubstitution” ->False} fail in version 10?
@AlexeyPopkov - this is not a sufficient solution, unfortunately, because non-vector graphics look rubbish when we resize them, which is necessary for including them in Word. For what it's worth, I do regard the v10 PDF export as improved over version 9 because at least embedded fonts are being correctly subsetted now.

comment Subscript in Wolfram|Alpha
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the web service Wolfram Alpha, not the software Mathematica or the Wolfram Language.

comment How to plot torsion prismatic beam
What behaviour were you expecting, that is not occurring? It's hard to help you without more information. "It doesn't work" is not very informative, unfortunately.

Dear @Bakha you have two profiles registered, it seems: here and here. Please follow the instructions at: stackoverflow.com/help/merging-accounts so your total reputation counts.

comment Plotting recursive from a for loop
Really? Someone is teaching you Mathematica using For loops and AppendTo? That's just depressing. See here: mathematica.stackexchange.com/a/18396/8

Also, note that Mathematica won't zip up the guy's hoodie for you. The pictures don't match.

Have a look at MeanShiftFilter to get you started.

comment Mathematica's equivalent to the Python's Zip command in List-comprehension?
@hhh, as mentioned in my other comment, that's nothing to do with MapThread and everything to do with incorrect syntax for the full form of Function. Also kindly stop moving the goal posts by revising the question and function of interest. No wonder this question has been downvoted.

comment Mathematica's equivalent to the Python's Zip command in List-comprehension?
@hhh it isn't working because you do not have the correct syntax for [Function, which is Function[{args},CoordinateTransform[(* etc *)]][args]. Note the [args] at the end. I'd suggest using the pure function form if you are going to put it in a MapThread. You do not need to be a "super guru", you just need to pay attention to the documented syntax.

Sorry @george2079 and @mfvonh - I didn't see your comments before posting my answer. I do think that MapThread is what the OP is looking for.

comment Can Mathematica solve this equation with NDSolve?
@MichaelE2 - fair enough: I think the main value in my answer is the point about exact versus real coefficients, which is why I can't help thinking that the question is a duplicate.

comment How to remove error at large time in NDSolve
There is a difference between v10 and v9. here is my plot from v9.0.1. Mathematica graphics. But the behaviour of the waves you describe in your question works fine.

Dear all, I feel like this is probably a duplicate, but couldn't find it easily.

comment Why legendmarkers shifted a few pixels after opacity is specified
@Leonx You don't want the borders anyway, trust me on that one. You can get rid of them by specifying Directive[EdgeForm[], Red]. I'll update my answer. And without wanting to seem pushy, please note that I now consult to the team in exchange for upvotes and answer-accepts ;-)

comment Map of United States as a 3D histogram
This is a nice solution, but the result shows why this kind of presentation obsfucates information rather than revealing it. If Edward Tufte weren't still alive, he'd be spinning in his grave!
