comment Should we re-think the use of the word “Save”
@AndroidHustle: "Put data on hard drive" would be a move in the wrong direction. When I say context specific actions I'm talking about what kind of task the user is working with, not the technical stuff that is actually happening in background (which is not really relevant to the user).

comment In Excel, how do you make it clear that a pane is frozen?
Brilliant and simple. - And to be honest, I like that you did it without having to use any script-functions - just plain UI.
