comment How to specify custom graph styles for `GraphStyle`?
Thanks Kellen for the effort, but this is exactly the referred "obvious solution" I want to avoid. Sorry, no cigar for this :)

comment Can anyone tell me what f[[1,1,2]] is doing?
@Karsten Well, it should be the "Five Kinds of Bracketing (and increasing)", considering <|...|>.

comment Scoping in assigning a derivative
@Albert TechSupport replied the following: "Some symbols may be used internally and therefore be protected. [...] \[FormalPhi] is in the Global context, which indicates that it is not being used internally."

comment Manipulator reset bug
Thanks @Kuba, I'm aware of that, but I wanted to show that Manipulator not just resets the value but also evaluates anything else - which is scary, as always.

comment Making a Button smaller in width
Have you tried with a fresh kernel? Restarting Mathematica without any user packages loaded? Are you sure you have not meddled with any system options that might affect displaying gui elements?

comment Scoping in assigning a derivative
Mr.Wizard, @Albert Just for avoiding some pitfalls: not all formal symbols are protected and are in the System` context (this is by design), cf. \[FormalPhi] vs. \[FormalDelta]. This definitely leaves room for potential collision.

comment Are formal characters like \[FormalA] to be used differently than other symbols?
@R.M. Not all formal symbols are protected: \[FormalDelta] is but \[FormalPhi] is not Protected. According to TechSupport, this is by design, as some formal symbols are used internally, some are not. This is aggrevating, as one cannot rely on that a formal symbol has no global value set by the user.

comment What's the difference between variables with and without a subscript?
However, D[Subscript[c, x]*x, x] returns Subscript[c, x] + x*Derivative[0, 1][Subscript][c, x] instead of simply $c_x$, it being a coefficient, as D treats Subscript as a symbolic function. Any idea how to overcome this?
