comment How to remove file modification tracking on an Emacs buffer?
Those are all complex, was really hoping for a way to undo the effect of the save-buffer command that causes a buffer to hence forth be tracked for changes, where previously it had not been so tracked.

Yes, but if you continue to modify the buffer the flag will turn on again, is there a way to remove the file modification tracking?

Yes, but what if the damage has already been done with write-file, is there anyway to remove the file modification tracking?

comment How to rename a shared Dropbox folder?
@cody.codes The answer is more of a work around in my opinion as it impacts every person you have shared the folder with to lose a shared folder and then accept a new one which is somewhat disruptive in aggregate if it is shared widely. Further, it is undistinguishable for the shared users from creating a new folder and sharing that instead.

comment How to change default column widths in Macintosh Finder?
This appears to be folder specific, setting it for one folder and then navigating to another gives the old default really wide first column. How can this setting be applied to all folders?

@shub Thus far I've only tried the change for all new spreadsheets which works even for setting hyperlinks for new spreadsheets, but I'm not sure how to apply that to existing ones.

comment Microsoft Word 2007 removing spaces between words
If I open the version in dropbox, there is no issue. I don't want the document emailed since it is confidential, so cannot perform that experiment. However, when they opened it in another application (Open Office) it had the spaces.

comment How to un-traverse a cross-reference in Microsoft Word on a Macintosh?
Although the behavior is not clear, e.g. clicking a cross reference and doing GoBack does not return you to the reference you clicked and sometimes GoBack switches from one document to another, or goes to the end. Seems to be buggy or the intended behavior eludes me.

comment In Emacs on my Mac, how can `Compile Command` see PATH set in ~/.bashrc?
@lawlist Yes, but I'm looking to understand why it behaves this way and how to 'fix' it not work around it.

Thanks for the Mac answer, but the answer you supplied is one of the possible solutions that I said did not work in my question. Is this working for you? If so, what might be different in your environment?

Are you on a Mac? I'm not locating and arrow section, nor do I find a Change Tracking Options item.

On at least my Linux, a lowercase 'm' is required for Megabytes.
