Cell Convert To InputForm Display

InputForm Display
displays the selection in Mathematica InputForm without interpreting it.
  • If the cell contains structured typeset expressions, such as fractions or subscripts, they are converted to linear syntax notation instead of InputForm like the commands in the Convert To submenu.
