Hi MathGroup,

I would very much like to obtain the following cell grouping behavior: If a new cell
was started, especially a Text or Input Cell, I would like it to be grouped into the
lowest containing OPEN group. Then I could be working at the Section level say, start
a Subsection which would contain ancillary material, close up the Subsection, and
continue with the Section. But with present behavior any new material always goes
into the Subsection. Also to make the scheme workable, it would be necessary to be
able to set a new cell selection point either at the end of a subsection or beyond it
in the larger group.

Manual grouping is not an adequate solution since all the automatic grouping is given
up. And once you switch back to automatic grouping, any manual grouping done is lost.

I have somewhat mimicked this behavior by defining new cell types SubText and
SubSubText in my style sheet such that SubText is grouped at the same level as

Does anyone know an easier method to obtain the behavior described above?
