comment Why is left NumberPadding always applied in NumberForm?
@MikeHoneychurch, thanks for the reminder. While your answer contains a good solution to the problem, m_goldberg's answers the exact question.

comment Horizontal Tree Layout?
This code adds an extra frame. You only need Rotate[ ... /. x_Framed -> Rotate[x, -Pi/2], Pi/2]

comment Set PointSize to pixel size
With DensityHistogram there's no need to generate m: DensityHistogram[ data, PlotRangePadding -> 0, ImageSize -> {200, 200}, Frame -> False, ColorFunction -> (Blend[{LightGreen, Darker@Green}, #] &), PerformanceGoal :> "Speed" ]

comment Why has my syntax coloring changed?
Clearing the user-level init.m in ~/Library/Mathematica/FrontEnd/ doesn't work. Is there another system-wide one I should try clearing out? Starting with Command+Shift also doesn't work.

@Szabolcs, yes, and I'm absolutely sure it's plugged in. See edits.

comment How can autocomplete entries be added for DownValues and Properties?
Ah for this case I've added the Keys function from this answer to my toolchain.

comment How can autocomplete entries be added for DownValues and Properties?
@rcollyer, I don't understand your question. I can always call thisFit["Properties"] to find the properties of the fit or DownValues[x][[All,1,1,1]] to get the keys of x. You have improvements upon these methods?

comment Why do Plot and ListPlot use the last PlotStyle when only one thing is plotted?
Mine is version 9. It looks like they changed something. The green and blue colors never appear in the InputForm of the third example.

Aha. I thought Directive was always required for multiple-word styles. This is a symptom of that not being the case. Thanks.

comment How can this AbsoluteTime call be made faster?
@chromate, thanks, but you're performing the reverse of the desired conversion. The input data are strings.

comment How can PixelConstrained be emulated with DensityHistogram?
Skeptics, you're overthinking it. Just look at the image in my question. Compare the size of an isolated purple box to that of an isolated white box. They are very clearly different and the cause of this difference, be it aliasing or something else, is not the subject of the question. The subject of the question is a solution that makes the bins display with identical size by prescribing their size in pixels.

comment How can automatic ticks be made “outie”?
@Szabolcs I too use LevelScheme sometimes, but it'd be nice to have a native way of doing this. Thanks for the suggestion.

comment Setting the default font for PlotLegends
Thanks for asking for clarification. By "new" I only mean that there should be zero clicks or keystrokes between creating a new document and making a plot with the desired default font in the legend. Behavior of old notebooks need not be preserved and behavior on other people's computers doesn't matter.

This shortcut is the subject of this answer.

comment Using PlotLegends with a numeric PointSize
Thanks for your answer. I'm disappointed because this kind of trial end error is what I had hoped would be eliminated by the new legends capabilities. I'd say it's not mature yet.

comment How can selection of delimiter matches be disabled?
@halirutan, thanks for the suggestion. On the Mac this is cmd+alt+], which is not nearly as easy. Maybe I'll change the shortcut to alt+] and use this as the workaround.
