Dear MathGroup,

I would like to make an InputAlias for the following three lines so I don't
have to type them in each time I do an animation.

SelectionMove[EvaluationNotebook[], All, GeneratedCell]

However, when I copy these lines into the InputAliases Dialog Box in the
Option Inspector I run into all kinds of problems. When I try to enter the
alias, Mathematica doesn't like the box structure. Also it seems that there
is a limit on the size of the replacement. I can make an alias for the first
line alone, but not for all three lines as a unit.

Can anyone show me how to do this?
