  • From: "David Park" <djmpark at>

$CellContext is something new in Version 6.0. What is its purpose? I have a 
palette from 5.2 that copies selected material, performs some processing on 
it, and saves it. There is another button that will paste the processed 
expression back into a notebook. It worked fine in 5.2 but in 6.0 it returns 
variable x, say,  as $CellContext`x.

How can I convert this back to a plain x?
