Sir, I am using V5.1 and I have wondered a long time how one 
can group or ungroup cells. It would be handy at times to be 
able to collapse a group of cells. But how does one define a 
group of cells so they can be collapsed or uncollapsed? I've 
tried highlighting a bunch of cells and then used every 
cell/group menu item I can find but nothing ever happens.

By the way my Windows system menu says Ctrl+' is the 
keyboard shortcut - nothing about Alt+Shift.

I've looked all through the help system and have found 
nothing about this subject. Could you give me a few key 
words so I can search further on this? Thanks.
