Hello Everyone, I'm using Mathematica 5.1 on Mac OS X 10.3.8, and I'm having trouble copying numerical output cells using the Copy As... command under the Edit menu. I can't avoid getting all of the the hidden formatting codes when I paste into another document such as TextEdit. I've tried all of them, and in particular, Plain Text, Formatted Text, and Text (add white space) but I still get all of the gibberish. I can copy as PICT but that's no good because I need to be able to format later on. Is there any way to copy the results of calculations without having to export? Greg For what it's worth, Mathematica's help browser says this: Selections can be copied in the following formats: Plain Text, Formatted Text, Text (add whitespace), Cell Expression, Notebook Expression, Complete Notebook, and MathML. Plain Text removes any information about styles, while Formatted Text preserves style information. On Windows also: Bitmap (BMP), Windows Metafile (WMF), and Wave (WAV). On Macintosh also: PICT, Bitmap PICT, PICT with Embedded PostScript, and QuickTime.
