In my view, the Mathematica front end would have needed a complete rewrite a long time ago to be in a shape where it can compete with modern UI's. Looking at MATLAB, it's clear that you always find things that are even more out-of-date. Also, I don't want to say that you can't create beautiful content inside a notebook. However, especially the capabilities ...

Maybe you can use a tooltip with CurrentValue? For example, here's a random graphics object: g = Graphics[{ Thickness[.1], Green, { Circle[{0,0}], Red, Line[{{0,0},{1,1}}], { Blue, AbsoluteThickness[1], Polygon[{{0,1},{1,0},{1,1}}] } } }] Replace every Line, Polygon ...

The SummaryBox stuff is just a distraction. Your code: m["Append"][5]; does not change m. Hence, the summary box will show no change. Returning to your first example: m["List"] = Range@10 This could be made to work with the MutationHandler framework. For example: SetAttributes[myObjectHandler, HoldAll]; myObjectHandler[Set[(m_Symbol?myObjectQ)[...

You can disable copying of the cell labels on the global level: SetOptions[$FrontEnd, { "ExportTypesetOptions" -> {"PageWidth" -> 90, "IncludeCellLabels" -> False}, "ExportMultipleCellsOptions" -> {"IncludeCellLabels" -> False}}] (I also set copied page width to be suitable for StackExchange). This setting will persists between ...

Currently I have come to a much more complicated solution than I wished, which completely depends on the automatic grouping behavior (which I temporarily switch on): SetOptions[EvaluationNotebook[], {CellProlog :> AbortProtect[ Module[{nb = EvaluationNotebook[], evalCell = EvaluationCell[], cells, pos, grouping, groupingRules}, If[...

UPDATE: the bug is confirmed by WRI tech support, [CASE:4338353]. I reproduce the issue with version 12.0 on Windows 7 x64. Here are the steps: In a new (empty) Notebook apply the Evaluation ► Evaluate Notebook menu item. Now create a new "ItemNumbered" cell by applying the Format ► Style ► ItemNumbered menu item. Here is the result: After saving this ...

I have enclosed the output of a notebook that exhibits the problem. The 1 and 2 were generated using "ItemNumbered". After "Evaluation > Evaluate Nootbook", I get 0 everytime I use "ItemNumbered".

Here is another solution which is even more efficient than my previous one and works at least starting from Mathematica 8. Significant advantage is that it configures at once reverse printing for all output styles defined in the default stylesheet (i.e. "Output", "Print", "Echo", "PrintTemporary", "Message" and so on) independently of their names. It can ...
