I've asked several times in the past for a quick and easy way to 
evaluate a (possibly lengthy) notebook from the top down to a point 
where you're doing some editing, but not beyond that point, without 
having to laboriously scroll and select all the way back up to the top.

"Ersek, Ted R" <ErsekTR at> has sent me a method which is 
neat enough that I think it's worth posting here.

As is the case, I suspect, with many other people, all my notebooks 
start with a "Title" cell which is one level higher in the Style 
hierarchy than any subsequent cells (it's usually a Section style cell, 

If I insert a temporary cell having this same style just below where I'm 
working in the notebook, and maybe type "EVALUATE TO HERE" into it, then 
all the cells above that point are joined in a group; and I can evaluate 
them by just clicking on the lower end of the outermost bracket that 
covers that group, and hitting ENTER.
