Date: May 24, 2013 5:29 AM Author: Murray Eisenberg Subject: Re: Silly question on how to insert sections, subsections and etc. on a notebook After change to Manual Grouping . . .

Select and cut the cell(s) to be "dangled" (at the end of the Section

but outside any Subsection), then paste them below the Section cell.

Next, close the Section group.

Now select the bracket of the closed Section cell along with the

now-separate cell(s) that you moved below the section.

From the Cell menu's Grouping item, select Group Cells/Group Together.

That is, part of it goes to a section that it is divided in subsection 1, subsection 2 and dangling cells. I want to select what set of cells go to subsection 1, subsection 2 and dangling section.
