Hi Bobby On your Windows machine, does Alt+] and then Alt+] again give the same result as my 9 keystroke sequence "Esc [ [ Esc Esc ] ] Esc left_arrow", i.e. the pair of characters represented at the Expression level by \[LeftDoubleBracket] and \[RightDoubleBracket], with cursor in the middle (achieved by my left-arrow)? If it does, then sacre bleu! It doesn't on my PC; first thing I tried. Otherwise, ... I want the nice notation without 9 keystrokes each time.
