Hi, MathGroup, in most cases, setting Default Output Format Type to StandardForm gives the best results. This can be accessed from Mathematica's CellMenu. However, sometimes, one wants to highlight parts of an expression for Copy...Paste-operations (e.g. parts of an output from Solve, which Simplify does not simplify well enough). Then, InputForm is better, epecially if (on Windows systems) one uses Shift-Control-B to select a parenthesized subexpression. (Copy...Paste does not well work from StandardForm cells, if one wants to paste to an InputCell). Now I would like to set up certain cells, such that all output generated by them is in InputForm, whrereas all other cells use StandardForm. Is it possible to set OutputFormatType per cell and how is this accomplished? kind regards Dipl.-Math. Adalbert Hanszen
