Marc, You can open another notebook (window) and write output to it. This is done using notebook programming. In the Help browser look under Built In Functions\Notebooks\Notebook Operations and Notebook Manipulations. However from the tenor of your question, I suspect that you would not want to get into this kind of programming. What is wrong with working in a single notebook? If you learn how to use the automatic grouping, to put in Titles and Section Headings, etc., you can make the notebook look and perform quite nicely. Are you new to Mathematica? What level of math are you willing to do? The idea that Mathematica has a command to solve every math problem, even relatively simple ones, is far from correct. For example, high school students may learn how to "complete the square" but there is no Mathematica command for it. It is easy enough to program a routine to do it. The point is that mathematics, even relatively simple mathematics, not to speak of engineering and science, is so vast that it is impossible for Mathematica to have a command for everything; there would be millions of commands and you couldn't find the one you wanted. So if you are not willing to do SOME mathematics and SOME programming, you may be disappointed in what Mathematica will do for you. On the other hand, if you are willing to do some math and programming, then Mathematica is a wonderful tool and will greatly amplify your efforts.

I also tend to think this would be useful for a lot of people Marc
