Does anyone else ever have difficulty in getting the Alt key to work when
entering new cells in a notebook? For me, in Version 7, this has become very
erratic. Sometimes it works and sometimes it just won't work at all. I did
insert ShowCellBracket->Automatic into my style sheet. But when I changed it
to ShowCellBracket->True, I still have the problem.  Then I changed the
notebook to the DefaultStyle and I still have the problem.


It is a bit annoying that this no longer works because it was my primary
method of designating new cell types.
