It is not a silly question at all. The object is that you are writing a notebook and discussing some topic in a section and then you want to include a subsidiary discussion in a Subsection that would normally be closed and then continue on with the main discussion. Another example is that you have certain definitions that need to be initialized in the Section and for some reason you want the user to initialize them but not have to look at them. You could put them in a Subsection at the end of the Section but then the user might miss seeing them. If you put them in a Subsection at the beginning then with regular Mathematica you can't get back to the Section. In the Presentations Application I've made provision for this. It's done through the Presentation style sheets and you could provide your own similar style sheet. I've added new Cell styles: ResetSection, ResetSubsection, ResetSubsubsection and Reset Subsubsubsection. These insert extremely thin invisible cells at the given level. Essentially ResetSubsection creates a new Subsection that looks like it is just a continuation of the Section. There is also an optional SectionEndLine Cell style that inserts a bold horizontal line to signal the end of a Subsection - when the Susbsection is open. Also the Presentation style sheets put group openers on all the section level groupings but not on anything else. So your notebook structure would look like the following: Section 1 Text and Mathematica commands subsection 1.1 Text and Mathematica commands SectionEndLine subsection 1.2 Text and Mathematica commands SectionEndLine ResetSubsection Text and Mathematica commands (note that this part is not inside subsection 1.2 but it is inside Section 1) (This is actually in a new unlabeled Subsection that looks like a continuation of the Section.) Section 2 Presentations also has another method for inserting side discussions called a Sidebar notebook. A Sidebar notebook is embedded in the mother notebook but the contents are hidden. There are commands MakeSidebar, SaveSidebar and SidebarButton. A SidebarButton could be placed in a Text cell and used to launch a particular Sidebar notebook in a separate window.

Mendes [mailto:emammendes at gmail.com] Hello I wonder whether it would be possible to write a notebook with the following structure: Section 1 Text and Mathematica commands subsection 1.1 Text and Mathematica commands subsection 1.2 Text and Mathematica commands Text and Mathematica commands (note that part is not inside subsection 1.2 but it is inside Section 1) Section 2 ..... I could not figure out how to have "Text and Mathematica commands" after subsection 1.2 but still inside Section 1. Many thanks Ed
