Finding the Q - any inference?
With split honors in a 5-3 fit, i'm not giving up the odds and will start with short honor (picking up stiff Q off). Now if they made a significantly unattractive lead, i could reconsider OR if i happen to know my LHO well and they often lead trumps ...
Too good to sign off?
Needs to be made clear that 2 is definitively a heart raise, that's not the case for everyone playing new suits NF.
Thomas Berg's bidding problem: KJ4 KQ762 Q63 A5
If 4 were allowed, i would bid it, but i really can't worry about going down in 5 since i don't have much choice.
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: Q9 Q84 AJ84 K876
4432, an ace, high cards (mostly) in long suits, some decent interiors --- looks like a reasonable 12 count . Passing is OK but can be tough to catch up as a passed hand, doesn't work well for me. The ability to narrowly define ones hand with 1 call is quite ...

And 3NT is?
To play
How do you play 3D here?
For me, 3 acts as a strain probe. If Actual then a hand not suited for NT (weak length or extreme shape). Opener makes the most descriptive call which is often 3N holding card but not mandatory.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: A75 2 432 J98543
Overcalling here is an ill-advised expansion of 1N forcing.
