comment How to make Gmail automatically convert typed-in or pasted URLs into links
Yes it is necessary: Please consider that I paste in links very frequently: When composing a message, I need to verify that the URL I am pasting it resolves correctly. To do that without automatic link creation, I have to take time selecting the URL, typing CTRL-K, moving my hand back to the mouse to then click on the link and click on it again to view it in a new tab in the browser. All of those key and mouse movements are error-prone.

comment How to link or share an email in Gmail?
That is trial-ware. It would be better to have this built-in to the Google framework and be very similar to what the Google Drive sharing paradigm offers, including the comment feature in Google Docs, specifically.

comment How to directly view a Google Visualization API Query URL as a human-readable table or web page?
"had I asked" does not imply "it was asked" on those sites. I only asked it on this site. Regardless, we are in agreement that it should be closed.

I recommend closing it as well: This one is likely not going to be answered anyhow, now that it is several months after I opened it. Besides, had I asked this on StackOverflow or PowerUsers, they probably would have migrated it to WebApplications anyhow.

comment Can I get header numbering in Google Docs?
The FAQ entry for How do I add automatic heading numbering? says: "If the add-on is installed, choose “Add-ons” -> “Heading numbers“, and then choose your style." But when adding it to a document, that did not show up. I had to reload the document before "Heading numbers" showed up in the menu. Probably a Google bug and not a bug in the Heading numbers app.

Agreed. I'll wait for a few days, and then recheck it.

comment How to select smaller objects without selecting larger covered object in Google Slides or Google Drawing
I think I will have to accept yours as the answer here, but before I do, can you clarify what "move to background" means? I searched the context and main menus and could not identify what this means. I only found a way to change the background color, not move any objects to the background (which I would presume would allow them to not participate in object selection).
