Evaluatable

Evaluatable

is an option for Cell that specifies whether a cell should be used as input to be evaluated by the Wolfram Language kernel.

Details

  • With Evaluatable->True, typing TemplateBox[{shift, return}, Key1, BaseStyle -> {Notes, FontWeight -> Plain, FontFamily -> Source Sans Pro}] in the front end when the cell is selected will cause the contents of the cell to be sent to the Wolfram Language kernel for evaluation.
  • Evaluatable is more often set for styles of cells than for individual cells.
