# Select a Placeholder in a Notebook?

How might I select the 1st Placeholder in a Notebook?

SelectionMove


Has no option.

Button["Click Here",
NotebookWrite[
InputNotebook[],
ToBoxes[Unevaluated@Sum[Placeholder[m ], {t, 1, n}]],
Placeholder];
]


This works for me in version 10.0.0 under Windows:

NotebookFind[EvaluationNotebook[], "\[Placeholder]"]


Since:

NotebookFind[obj,data] sets the current selection in the specified notebook object to be the next occurrence of data.

This must be placed at the top of the Notebook when it is run.

• It is a named Placeholder. But I believe I see. – William Sep 3 '14 at 2:45
• @Liam I don't understand your comment. What do you mean? Were you not referring to \[Placeholder] as generated with Placeholder[]? – Mr.Wizard Sep 3 '14 at 2:48
• I am. Posted example. Version doesn't work currently. – William Sep 3 '14 at 2:51
