comment How to create a dynamic expanding DisplayForm's styled like the ones in v10?
@Quantum I don't think so, as this type of object-representation is certainly older than v8. However, I cannot test it as I only have v10; perhaps someone cares to add this information.

Yes, eager to see the culprit!

comment Can Mathematica run of the new 2015 MacBook?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is just an unnecessary show-off.

It works even without a minimal change.

comment How to make a dynamic nested menu?
Nice, thank you! I was wondering beforehand what kind of dedicated wrapper (like an inert Subitem) to use to wrap submenus in, but it seems that RuleDelayed is inert enough for the general nested case.

Also, Table, Do and Plot scope, Fit does not. I always wanted to ask this myself.

comment Recommendations about modifying usage of built-in symbols
QuantumDot, @Leonid It's true that the safest way is not to mess with builtins. But the efficient way is sometimes to cut corners. I often bash my head when I can't remember my periphrastic optionname which I was forced to introduced just to avoid using the otherwise straightforward name that got into the System` context with the new release... See my comments below my answer.

comment Recommendations about modifying usage of built-in symbols
@QuantumDot Exactly. I'm using this kind of extension since years and without any problem. I do not like to clutter the namespace with extra symbolnames, and on top of that, I do not like to use MyIntegrate as an option name when Integrate describes the best what my option does. Let's be honest, Stephen Wolfram really put a lot of thought into naming things and he did a quite good job. On the other hand, he really forced us to come up with convoluted names if we do not want interference.

comment How to prevent Dynamic activity with colour swatches in V10+
@halirutan On the contrary, I use them a LOT! I find them more concise and more informative than a triplet of RGB numerals. Though I'm quite good in reading those, swatches save some extra shift-entering for me. It obviously fits in the symbolic nature of Mathematica. And of course one always can use FullForm on them.

comment Changing the format of ActionMenu
There is an option MenuAppearance, though undocumented. Just check with Options@ActionMenu. Not that I know how to use it, but it worth exploring a bit.

comment What is FrontEnd`AttachedCell?
I am trying to figure out how to do a nested menu structure with attached cells (a la ActionMenu, but with multiple levels) but it is not straightforward to call attached cells from attached cells and reliably destroy them when leaving the parent. Do you have any insight on this?

comment What is FrontEnd`AttachedCell?
Aren't you missing an assignment as attachedCell = attachTo[parentBox] within the parent's `EventHandler?

comment How to specify custom graph styles for `GraphStyle`?
Ultimately, I'd like to use the same themes for graphs that are available for plots.
