The option is AutoGeneratedPackage, and it can be set on a per-notebook basis or at the global level. As usual, if the option is not specified at the notebook level, it is inherited from the global level. You can find documentation for this option here: FrontEndExecute[ FrontEnd`HelpBrowserLookup[ "OtherInformation", "AutoGeneratedPackage" ] ] You may change the option from the Option Inspector dialog or with SetOptions, using $FrontEnd or EvaluationNotebook as the first argument. -- P.J.
