comment What is the most convenient way to read definitions of in-memory symbols when we don't have the source files? (Spelunking tools)
Is it by design that (Print)Definitions omits formatting definitions like MakeBoxes[...]^:=... (e.g. in case of PrintDefinitions@EvaluationObject)? Is it because some dynamic formatting box could lead to problems when evaluated for printing? @Rolf Try ChartElementData: it has 1853 definitions.

comment How to call external commands with parameters on Win7?
I recommend using RunProcess (and related StartProcess, KillProcess), much easier to set up complicated command chains. It constructs the actual command to conform to the actual platform it is run on, concerning paths, spaces, escape characters, etc.

comment BezierCurve in EdgeShapeFunction fails when used on multiedges graph
See built-in automatic method using "EdgeLayout" that curves edges.

comment Is it possible to draw a curved edge between two vertexes of a graph?
Use the built-in edge-curving method via the "EdgeLayout" option.

comment How to force DistributionChart to plot empty datasets?
Yes, this really pointed me to the right direction, thanks! Previously I failed to figure out how to pass on built-in CEFunctions to my own cef.

comment How to force DistributionChart to plot empty datasets?
Ok, this is even better but it fails when one wants to use built-in chart elements, like "PointDensity", etc. Yes, I forgot to include this in my post (sorry about that), modified now.

comment How to force DistributionChart to plot empty datasets?
@kguler Sure, I can do that, but it would not be rubust: what if my distribution has the expected value of 0? Than I had to replace {} with something else.

+1, really nice trick (I feel ashamed that I have not thought of this).

comment How to disable the small pop-up windows when mouse is over a Mathematica command in V10?
This also removes the code-completion assistant, which is otherwise helpful during typing. Is there any way to have the completion floater but not the mousover floater? It seems like I either have both or none (or only the mouseover floater but not the former). (Mathematica 10.1 Win7)

comment How to synchronize the display of dynamic objects?
It is enough if the Dynamic is moved to wrap the Line, no need to make the full content dynamical as well. I assume, SpehericalRegion cannot pre-determine the full region because of the dynamical content and that is why the explicit plot range is required.

comment Bug in MovingMap (breaking change between version 10.1 and 10.0.2)?
This returns an error for me (v10.1.0, 64bit, Win7): Quantity::unkunit: Unable to interpret unit specification Events. >>

comment Faded output is printed from dynamic object
@John, I am ashamed that all the way since v6 I have not realized this at all. I guess my setting of Manual was a frozen bad habit. Thanks for the help, setting was removed from my init.m!

comment How to map over inner keys of nested Associations?
@Mr.Wizard You might be right: while there are some examples (like Associations as keys), now that I scanned the docs I do have the feeling that an association is meant to be (used mainly as...) one-dimensional. And of course, there is this, which might indicate that the 1D-approach is intentional. But on the other hand, labeled data is automatically used by charting functions as labels/legend...

comment How to map over inner keys of nested Associations?
@Mr.Wizard Look around Dataset, under Applications > Associations of Associations, e.g. ExampleData[{"Dataset", "Planets"}].

comment How to map over inner keys of nested Associations?
@Mr.Wizard BTW, do you have any idea why these functions are not applicable at different levels? Association is not meant to be a single-level vector, even the documentation has many nested examples, so I wonder.

comment How to map over inner keys of nested Associations?
@Mr.Wizard I consistently get the unevaluated result; could this be a bug? Or am I overlooking something about the internals of associations?

comment How to switch from array to string?
Elegant! You can use StringDelete[..., "{" | "}" | ","] instead of StringTake.

comment How to set focus of a dialog window?
@Kuba This seems interesting, but do you possess any further information about where, how, and who uses ReferenceBox* and BoxReference* functions? It is hard to experiment with them without any pointer on what they do.

comment Compile, “global variables” and recursion
@Marius No, unfortunately. My usual approach nowadays is to just write computation-intense code in C and only do top level or data-analysis under Mathematica.
