Re: Silly question on how to insert sections, subsections and etc.
Posted:

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
Hi, Ed,
There are several ways to do that. The shortest to explain is as follows.
Go to Menu/Format/StyleSheet/StyleSheetChooser
This brings up a dialog with various predefined templates. Choose the very first, if you need just the basic template, or choose any other of your liking. Remove unnecessary cells. Copypaste those you need to multiply. Make numeration of the Sections and Subsections by hand. Indentation and unification of subsections belonging to their Sections will be arranged automatically.
Text and Mathematica commands may be done in different cells: text goes into the TextCell, while a command requires the InputCell or Mathematica Code Cell. Alternatively you may change types of cells yourself: after having marked the cell parenthesis (at the right notebook margin) this is controlled by Menu/Format/Style and choose the Text or Input item.
Alternatively you may enter both text and code into the input cell, but wrap the text by the comment signs, that is (* *). Done.
Have fun, Alexei
