Thanks for the advice, Sjoerd. It works. But in a more global context,
how does one modify the default menu selections that are already
checked upon starting Mathematica? There must be some way to modify a
setting in the initialization notebook, but I haven't found how. I
have been looking for some way to uncheck the selection with Options
Inspector in my notebook, but I have not had any success finding the
key. I imagine there should be some way to make the change in a given
notebook that gets saved with the notebook, but I haven't discovered
how to do it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
