Select those cells you wish to convert, or the whole notebook, and then


Check the results before you save. You will find that things like
(statement)//N gets converted to N[statement] and similarly for other
postfix operators. Also, input statements that you have typed in "your way"
may get reformatted in "Mathematica's way", which, although it is correct,
may not be the way you want it to look.
