> how do i create a palette for a general hilberts matrix?

Here are the steps you need:

1. Input | Create Button | Evaluate.

This creates a button "skeleton".

2. Paste the following into the button (at the point which is highlighted
after you created it)


This tells the button to generate a Hilbert matrix whose size is determined
by whatever (positive integer) is selected when the button is clicked.

3. File | Generate Palette from Selection

This generates a one-button palette from the button you just created.

To use this palette button you simply type an integer (the required Hilbert
matrix size) into an input cell, highlight it by click-dragging the mouse
cursor over it, press the palette button, and you get the Hilbert matrix of
the requested size.
