ShowSelection

ShowSelection

is an option to Notebook, Cell, and Style that specifies whether to show the current selection highlighted.

Details

  • ShowSelection is often set for styles of cells or whole notebooks instead of individual cells.
  • Settings for ShowSelection affect only how the selection is displayed, not where it is or how it works.
  • Setting ShowSelection->False is convenient if you want notebook operations to be performed invisibly.
