Wow Ingolf. That's one large amount of front end code (with a lot of branches, it seems) for such a compact palette. If I may ask, did you code all that by hand in an editor, or do you have a build process that writes the code to the SetFaceAndFont2.nb file? I think the search functions you put in there make very good use of Google's operators. :Applause: WRI: If you would implement something similar to the CopyAsInputFormK button on this palette, we would probably have less people pasting the string representation of box forms into MathGroup emails. For example: Copy as plain text from Mathematica's right click menu: In[1]:= \!\(\@\(a\/0\)\) From In[1]:= \!\(\* RowBox[{\(Power::"infy"\), \(\(:\)\(\ \)\), "\<\"Infinite expression \ \\!\\(1\\/0\\) encountered. \\!\\(\\*ButtonBox[\\\"More\[Ellipsis]\\\", \ ButtonStyle->\\\"RefGuideLinkText\\\", ButtonFrame->None, \ ButtonData:>\\\"Power::infy\\\"]\\)\"\>"}]\) Out[1]= ComplexInfinity CopyAsInputFormK (It would be nice to keep the cell tags though): Sqrt[a/0] Power::"infy" : "Infinite expression (1/0) encountered. (ButtonBox[\"More\[Ellipsis]\", Rule[ButtonStyle, \"RefGuideLinkText\"], Rule[ButtonFrame, None], RuleDelayed[ButtonData, \"Power::infy\"]])" ComplexInfinity On 9/27/06, Ingolf Dahl <ingolf.dahl at telia.com> wrote: > Oh, then you should of course use my SetFaceAndFont palette, available from > http://web.telia.com/~u31815170/Mathematica/.
