I suggested to WRI that the File Save/Save As menu commands be expanded in 
the next version to include the following:

 Delete graphic output and Save
 Delete text output and  Save
 Delete all output and Save
 Save all

 They responded by saying it was a good idea. Let's hope it happens!

Subj:   RE:  Eliminating output cells

There is a very easy way to elininate output cells in a notebook.
The Mathematica FrontEnd program has a very powerful FIND command,
so you can actually search for all output cells ALL AT ONCE,
and then delete them. (You will need to use the LONG form of FIND.)
You can do the same for MESSAGE and GRAPHICS cells.

In a similar manner, you can delete all graphics in one step,
or grab all initialization cells.

I hope this solves your problem.

Subj:   [mg200] Simple command to strip Notebook

Greetings all,
   I have a question which is stunning in its simplicity, and possibly in
its naivete:
   Is there a *simple* way to save a Notebook bloated with huge graphics
or output expressions in a `bare' form, i.e., with
all output from Mathematica: graphics, output, diagnostics, etc., stripped
out,
leaving only the structure of the Notebook (text, input commands, and
structural commands such  as section headings, etc.) intact?   [I am
aware that converting the Notebook to a package does something
like this, but wish to preserve the Notebook format.)
   For me this problem arise very frequently  and it astonishes me that
there is not an obvious single command to do this in one of the menus for
most front ends, but, then, I'm no expert.  So I usually resort to selecting
output cells and deleting them by hand, which can be tedious and painstaking
in a long Notebook.

Any suggestions, or rumors of such a feature in new releases of Mathematica?

Subj:   Eliminating output cells

Dear MathGroup

Is there any quick way of eliminating all output cells in a
Mathematica notebook before saving the notebook?
