Re: How to make make a Dynamic variable to become an ordinary one

If you use SelectionMove[] to make sure the Dynamic thing is selected, then you
can evaluate the following code:

FrontEndExecute[
 FrontEnd`NotebookDynamicToLiteral[NotebookSelection[nb]]]

where nb is the appropriate NotebookObject.  This will literalize *everything*
in the selection, which includes not just Dynamics, but also counters.

You could also literalize an entire notebook using this formulation...

FrontEndExecute[FrontEnd`NotebookDynamicToLiteral[nb]]
