Hi I am a relative newbie with Mathematica, and am currently trying to type up a project. I have set the notebook's default cell style to "Text". The questions are as follows : (1) This question is probably extremely basic, so I apologize if it is a dumb question, however I can't find a direct answer to this in the online help. I want to start a new paragraph in a new cell, and the only way that I can find to do this is to hit the down arrow at the end of the previous paragraph. Is this the correct (best ?) way of doing this ? (2) I am trying to find a way to consecutively number my equations (which are scattered in between explanatory text in my notebook). The only thing that I have been able to find in the Mathematica book is section 1.10.14 "Automatic Numbering", which is a fairly vague overview of how this is done. Would someone be able to tell me how this is supposed to be done ? Also, if you have two very closely-related equations next to each other in the text...if you wanted to (say) number them as (14a) and (14b) instead of (14) and (15), how could you do this ? (3) Mention is made in section 1.10.14 of the Mathematica Book of the "NumberedEquation" cell style. However, when I drop down the style option from the Format menu, it is not on the list of styles. So, how do you set a cell to have the "NumberedEquation" style ? (4) I am also trying to number my sections consecutively, and am striking a problem. Firstly when I apply the option "Create Automatic Numbering Object" off of the input menu, it starts numbering at 0, but I want it to start numbering at 1. Also, how to get the sub-sections and sub-subsections to be numbered appropriately, i.e. if the main section is numbered "3.", how can I get the subsections to be numbered "3.1", "3.2" and the sub-subsections to be numbered "3.1.1", "3.1.2" etc. ? Many thanks in advance for your help, regards, Andrew J Fortune
