Hi, I'm new to Mathematica. I am using Version 4.0, Student edition. I'm thinking there must be a keyboard shortcut to enter text. I have figured out how to alter preferences (or something) and have the toolbar displayed whenever a notebook is opened. But whenever I want to insert a text cell, I have to grab the mouse, point to the dropdown edit box in the toolbar, and specifically select text. Is there not a keyboard shortcut to designate the next entry as text? I've looked in Help, with no luck, so far. Thanks. John Chaffer jrchaff at nwlink.com
