CellLabelPositioning

This function has not been fully integrated into the long-term Mathematica system, and is subject to change.
CellLabelPositioning
is an option for cells that specifies where the label for a cell is positioned.
  • With the default setting CellLabelPositioning -> Automatic, the label for a cell is placed to the left of the cell if it is short enough to fit in the left margin. Otherwise, the label is placed above the cell.
  • With the setting CellLabelPositioning->Left, the label for a cell is placed to the left of the cell at the level of the first line.
  • With the setting CellLabelPositioning->Above, the label for a cell is placed above the cell starting from the left edge of the page.
