I have a Code cell that generates a set of plots in a GraphicsGrid[]. Each time I execute the Code cell, a new Output cell is generated.

Is there a way to simply update a single output cell instead of generating a new one?

Your notebook may have the option OutputAutoOverwrite set to False, or the output cell below your input has the setting CellAutoOverwrite->False. You can use the Option Inspector in the Format menu to set this option.

  • $\begingroup$ Sjoerd - Thank you very much for your note. In my case the Outputoverwrite and CellAutoOverwrite properties are readonly and cannot be changed (not sure why).. $\endgroup$ – Doug Kimzey Jan 21 '15 at 12:49
  • $\begingroup$ @user1585715 You should probably be able to remove that cell property too. If I remember correctly the context menu should have that option. $\endgroup$ – Sjoerd C. de Vries Jan 21 '15 at 18:18
