That's what I was referring to when I said that there were cell options. I can select all of the cells in a notebook and turn off showing the cell label. However when I create new cells, they don't have that attribute and I see the danged labels. Perhaps I don't know how to "apply this at the notebook level", if you mean something other that applying it to all of the cells in a notebook. ShowCellLabel only shows up under Cell Options. It doesn't show up under Notebook Options or Global Options. In the good old days (i.e. a few weeks ago with 5.2), there was a Show In/Out Names in the Kernel menu that very simply turned off the labels for all cells in a notebook, whether the cells are existing or yet unborn. That's the functionality I'm looking for. I'm guessing it's out there somewhere, since my old notebooks that I gave that setting in 5.2 have this behavior in 6.0. I don't know how to get that behavior for new notebooks in 6.0. Mark
