Reply to message #242 from Paul Rombouts: > Hello, > > I'm using Mathematica
for Students 3.0 under Windows 95 on a Pentium machine. > When I type
a string inside an existing cell, as soon as I type the opening quote
the part of the cell contents after the quote is parsed as a string.
When I type the closing quote the rest of the cell contents is not
always reparsed correctly, which can give mysterious error messages
when I try to evaluate the cell. This happens most often when the
cell contains several assignment statements, each starting on a new
line. > I've found that copying the offending part of the cell as
text and then pasting it over the original can sometimes clean things
up. But occasionally I'm forced to edit the raw cell expression (using
the ''Show Expression'' menu item), which can be very tedious. > Does
anybody know an elegant way around this problem? > ____________________________________
