Ideally, the left cell would be a Text cell or an ItemNumbered cell and the right cell would be a cell that contained both the input and output cells (with the ability to hide the input cell, just as we can do in a notebook). I'd also be happy with a two-column cell, with each column behaving like an independent notebook. The code Cell[ BoxData[{ Cell["hi","Text"] , Cell["bob","Text"] }] ] ] stacks the cells. I'm looking for something more like: Cell[BoxData[GridBox[{ {"MyText", GraphicsBox[CircleBox[{0, 0}]]} },RowAlignments->Top]], "Text"] While this works in the sense that the vertical alignment is correct and it is easy to adjust the size of the graphic, the graphic itself has to be created elsewhere and then copy and pasted in order for the Graphics input code to remain available for editing. That's a clumsy workaround, since it means having to track the Graphics code somehow. I want to have the Graphics Input and Output in the same right cell so that I can edit the Graphics directly and hide the input code when finished. Also (and this is minor), I can't seem to find a way to use the Option Inspector to set the RowAlignment of the GridBox: I have to edit it directly. So my question boils down to: Is it possible to have an Input cell and an Output cell (grouped) in a GridBox so that the Input cell can be evaluated to produce the Output cell and the Input cell can be hidden/unhidden?
