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? -- David M.
