comment Processing Landsat 8 data using Erdas or ArcGIS Desktop?
Would you be able to edit your question to include some details about what you have already researched (and hopefully tried), please? You are far more likely to attract potential answerers when your own efforts to find the answer are evident in your question.

comment MakeFeatureLayer throwing error 00840: The value is not a feature layer
When you present us with a Minimal, Complete and Verifiable code snippet, which I thank you for trying to do, I think for code like this you should also include the lines that create your MapDocument and DataFrame objects. Otherwise, it is not Complete. Also, depending on what else you are trying to do, you may find that using your SQL expression to set lyr.definitionQuery, instead of using MakeFeatureLayer, is more flexible and less code.

comment Installing two versions of QGIS in Ubuntu?
Please edit your question to include those important details, and precisely where you got stuck. Potential answerers do not always read these temporary comments. If you can summarize the steps you took, in English, then you should be able to broaden the pool of potential answerers.

comment Applying symbology to layers and exporting to JPEG using ArcPy?
To debug this I recommend that you create a new test script and copy in just the necessary code to, at first, export it to JPEG. If that works, then do the same thing to add the layer and then export. Your problem appears unlikely to be due to looping/iteration so that is some code you can cut out from what you present to us.

What have you researched/tried and where are you stuck?

comment How to use Spatial Criteria with ArcPy Data Access Search Cursor?
I wonder if the documentation is simply alluding to using SelectLayerByLocation before arcpy.da.SearchCursor.

comment What is the function for Joins and Relates?
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Would you be able to use the edit button beneath to list the precise steps that you are trying to automate, up until the point where you are stuck, please? I suspect it may be a combination of several tools but I am not clear about precisely what you are asking.

comment Iterating Table Fields to Create Individual Shapefiles
I think you should include some more screenshots like a few rows from your two input tables, the parameter settings on the dialog for the Make XY Event Layer tool (since that is the one not colouring up to show that it is ready to run), and especially the text of the error that you said you are seeing. With those it may be possible for one of us to try and reproduce what you are seeing.

comment Projecting PDF for use with Avenza
By "9.2" do you mean ArcGIS Desktop 9.2 or something else? Please use the edit button to try and make what you are asking clearer.

comment Python tools won't open when clicked on
This appears to be a Python Toolbox question and does not involve a Python Script Tool so I am removing the latter tag.

comment How to remove newline from AddMessage() with ArcPy?
@Panos It's not one that I would vote for (without more convincing of a need for it), but you could post it to ArcGIS Ideas.

comment Minimizing attribute tables in ArcMap?
It's a usability issue. Imagine that I am a typical user nowadays with dual monitors. I may want a very wide table displayed on my left hand screen (which I can minimize to get at my email behind), and a tiny table or two open at the same time closer to the map data on my right hand screen. It's not enough to make me stop using ArcMap but it is enough to have me wish for Attribute Tables a la 9.3 or Pro.

comment Minimizing attribute tables in ArcMap?
What your screenshot shows is Tab Groups. The only way I knew to create those was via Table Options | Arrange Tables, but tearing them off by their tabs and placing them on the blue targets is a better method - so thanks for that! However, I do think that having them always contained within one table window remains quite restrictive compared to ArcMap pre-10.0 and ArcGIS Pro.

comment Minimizing attribute tables in ArcMap?
@FaridCher I would be very keen to see snapshots posted here because I think this has been unsatisfactory behaviour from ArcMap since 10.0: polygeo.com.au/2013/06/04/… I'm assuming that you have the dockable vs stackable terminology correct.

comment Minimizing attribute tables in ArcMap?
I think you should avoid using uncommon abbreviations like AT (presumably attribute table) and DW (presumably dockable window) in your questions and answers here because I think it reduces their readability.

comment Minimizing attribute tables in ArcMap?
@FaridCher In which version are you seeing that? At 10.3.1 I am not able to unstack the Table windows, and I do not recall any version since 10.0 (where this suboptimal behaviour was introduced) that could. On the other hand ArcGIS Pro behaves precisely the way that you describe.

comment Which is the best university in the world to pursue masters in GIS?
I agree with @Vince about why questions asking for the "best" anything are usually closed here, and my position on that and the thoughts of others can be found at Meta GIS SE. I think such questions are fine to ask in the GIS Chat Room but you will first need to focus on how to ask better received questions/answers to get the necessary 20 reputation to participate there.
