Hi, I'm not sure whether I understood your question in details but the following menu entries might be of interest: > Is there a way I can get "Cell[BoxData[FormBox["\[Placeholder]", > TraditionalForm]]]" to appear on at the entry cursor using a key > combination similar to what happens if I type `Ctrl+^'? Edit -> Expression Input -> Start Inline Cell (Ctrl+9 on Windows) will insert an inline Cell, which looks and behaves like what I think you want, except that there is no Placeholder... > If I type out the \!(...\) representation, it does not "snap into place" as > rendered text. Nor do I know of any way to persuade it to do so. > > Also, if I have already typed something such as "y=x", and decide I want it > displayed as expression text rather than raw text, is there a way to > highlight it, and "wrap" it in the appropriate boxes? select it as usual (mouse or keyboard), then use: Cell -> Convert To -> TraditionalForm (Ctrl+Shift+T on Windows) will wrap the inline Cell around the selection... hth, albert
