RE: How edit a saved palette?
Hi Murray, Try the following: Open the palette in Mathematica, select it and run "Generate Notebook from Palette" in the Palettes drop-down menu. Then some palette should appear in a new notebook. Close that palette and select again the wanted palette and run the menu command again. Repeat until the wanted palette appears in a notebook. Select it there, and convert it to InputForm or StandardForm. Then you might edit it, and maybe can recreate the palette with the CreatePalette command (there are other ways too). Then the trick is to move the palette slightly on the screen, and the close it. Then you will be asked if you want to save it. Do not forget to mail a copy of the improved palette to the primary author...
