Why don't you select the cell bracket and use Alt-CRV (Menu Cell->Properties->Evaluable)? That keeps the Input cell but it won't be evaluated. David Park djmp at earthlink.net http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ From: AES [mailto:siegman at stanford.edu] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net How about a module or command called, say, "skipThis" that's defined in the opening cells of a notebook, such that if you put skipThis; as the first line in any subsequent Input cell in the notebook, the remainder of that Input cell will be skipped, i.e. not executed -- without your having to wrap the remainder of the cell in an explicit If[ ] statement or similar coding. Or, an inputOff statement such that inputOff; as the first line of any Input cell will turn off execution of any subsequent Input cells (and perhaps the remainder of the cell containing the statement), until an Input cell beginning with inputOn is encountered. [I trust the utility of these will be reasonably obvious . . . ]
