I'm looking for a way to modify and/or customize the predictive interface:

enter image description here

Here are some customizations that I'd like to make:

  • If a cell evaluates to a list, I'd like to see the length and dimensions displayed
  • Always display the absolute timing of the above cell's computation
  • Add a button to copy the above input cell into a new code cell
  • Add a button to copy the above input to the clipboard as plaintext

    And many more...

Is there any way to accomplish this by modifying the existing interface or adding a totally new bar? Most pro-users disable and forget about it, but if we could change the contents of the bar it would become more useful.

What I've tried:

Nothing, I've no idea where to start.

  • $\begingroup$ A older question that contemplates adding more predictions to the bar can be found at Is it possible to customize the Suggestions Bar?. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @WReach thanks, I didn’t see that question - and it has a good answer but for very Quantity-specific things, it doesn’t ask/explain how to do these other types of things (like auto-timing). I am hoping there might be a more recent and general answer out there... $\endgroup$
