To my mind, this is the one flaw in Automatic Grouping. (Still Automatic
Grouping is infinitely better than manual grouping.)

You can obtain your objective by:
1) adding the Text cell in the last subsection.
2) Use Shift-Ctrl-E (or menu/Formate/ShowExpression) to see the underlying
3) Add the option


at the end of the Cell statement

4) Use Shift-Ctrl-E to return to the normal display.

The Text cell will now be grouped with the Section and not with the

I've pasted a sample notebook at the end of this posting.

I have a section in a Mathematica notebook that has several
subsections.  I want to end the section with some text, but that text
gets automagically included in the last subsection's cell bracket.  I'd
like it to occur outside (below) that cell bracket so that when I close
the subsection cell (to hide its contents), the last bit of text is
still visible to the reader.  Is there a slick/easy way to do this?

                    Mathematica-Compatible Notebook

This notebook can be used with any Mathematica-compatible
application, such as Mathematica, MathReader or Publicon. The data
for the notebook starts with the line containing stars above.

To get the notebook into a Mathematica-compatible application, do
one of the following:

* Save the data starting with the line of stars above into a file
  with a name ending in .nb, then open the file inside the

* Copy the data starting with the line of stars above to the
  clipboard, then use the Paste menu command inside the application.

Data for notebooks contains only printable 7-bit ASCII and can be
sent directly in email or through ftp in text mode.  Newlines can be
CR, LF or CRLF (Unix, Macintosh or MS-DOS style).

NOTE: If you modify the data for this notebook not in a Mathematica-
compatible application, you must delete the line below containing
the word CacheID, otherwise Mathematica-compatible applications may
try to use invalid cache data.

applications, contact Wolfram Research:

Cached data follows.  If you edit this Notebook file directly, not
using Mathematica, you must remove the line containing CacheID at
the top of  the file.  The cache data will then be recreated when
you save this file from within Mathematica.
