Cell Convert To StandardForm

converts the selection to Mathematica StandardForm.
  • When StandardForm is applied to a text selection, Mathematica creates an inline cell.
  • The expression is regenerated in the specified format by the Mathematica kernel. Syntactically incorrect expressions will generate an error.
  • StandardForm requires a kernel.
  • The conversion process will remove any Mathematica comments in the cell.
