I think there is no way around selecting the cell that way. Then by hitting Ctrl-Shift-E (depending on your version/os) you will be able to edit the raw expression for the cell. I just tried and could even change the cell properties with the option inspector, but this might be version dependent. There might be other ways to still detect and edit a cell that's hidden this way, I never did an exhaustive search of every option that a cell can have, nor about every action that could be done in the notebook. Also I guess that these subtleties are not documented in every detail. So the hiding is good enough for many purposes, but if you want to keep something secret, I wouldn't suggest to use that mechanism for it... albert
