comment How would I enable the Evaluate in place item of the Evaluate menu?
Thanks most kindly for the reply - I have it now. I am also using SaveDefinitions->True for Manipulate commands. This and the combination of semi-colon keep Mathematica from producing multiple instances of output when the notebook is next opened and evaluated.

comment Cursor disappears in Mathematica 9.01
I have tried the ShowCursorTracker but this has no effect.

Probably so - are there any known solutions?

comment How do I toggle between the program snippet form of a displayformula and the human readable form of the equation?
It can be evaluated in an Input cell. The quality of the formula is extremely low - as rendered in DOS type of expression (similar to old Mathcad) - when pasted in the DisplayFormulaNumbered cell it retains the poor quality. There just does not seem to be any way to get a publication quality formula in a DisplayNumberedFormula cell. The Cell | Convert options simply take you to an expression form that can only be evaluated in another cell type.

It does if the cell is evaluatable. If I put an expression in an DisplayFormulaNumbered cell and right-click the cell, go to properties, and look at the Evaluatable property under Cell Options | Evaluation Options, the Evaluatable property is set to False and cannot be changed. At this point you are left with the expression form and not a human readable form.

I guess one of the things I have been trying to do is create a publication quality notebook in Mathematica. I would like to have equations that look at least as good as the equation editor in MS Word. The cursor often disappears when using templates in the Basic Math Assistant (and other pallets). I sometimes need a table to show text, graphics (not always a matrix). I would be very interested in seeing a reference on creating publication quality work in Mathematica. I always seem to do the math work in Mathematica and write the paper in MS Word. It would be less work if I could do this.

That is what I want - when I evaluate the cell, however, I still see the expression.

I was experimenting - trying to get a publication quality form of the formula. The equation is converted to an expression when using Cell Convert StandardForm or TraditionalForm. I found that there was no way to get back to the human readable form after Cell Convert.

Not in this case. The steps to reproduce are: 1. Add a DisplayFormulaNumbered cell. 2. Ctrl-F9 and enter formula 3. Cell | Convert To TraditionalForm 4. The equation is now converted to an expression. 5. Cell | Show Expression shows an even longer expression. The only solution I have found is delete the cell. Re-enter the formula - and do not try any formatting or Cell Conversion.
