CellDingbat

CellDingbat
is an option for Cell which specifies what dingbat to use to emphasize a cell.
  • The setting CellDingbat->"" displays no dingbat.
  • Dingbats are placed to the left of the main contents of a cell, aligned with the first line of the contents.
  • Dingbats are placed outside of any cell frame.
  • CellDingbat is often set for styles of cells rather than for individual cells.
