I'm a bit surprised that only one reply suggested or commented on the even simpler approach pf just changing the style of the Output cell in the Format >> Style menu . . . namely a reply from "Kevin J. McCann" <kjm at KevinMcCann.com> who wrote: > I do this all the time. Make a plot, for example, then highlight the > bracket at the right and change the cell type to Figure.

I don't know what "Figure" is, or at least don't see any such style in the Default style sheet. But if my Output cell is a Plot or other graphic, my experiments also show that just changing the style of an Output cell to Text (or one of the header styles) does what I want. My only concern in doing this is that I don't know what other hidden consequences this may be causing . . . ???
