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 navair.navy.mil> 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, Ctrl-4)). 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. Neat.
