Is it possible to suppress 'Out[xxx]=' without suppressing 'In[xxx]:='?

Posted 11 years ago
While I have not exhaustively searched Help/Documentation Center for an answer to my question, I have put forth a yeoman's effort without any success.

Does anyone know if it is possible to suppress "Out=" on an on-going basis within a notebook without also suppressing "In:=" and if it is, could you please tell me how?

Thanks!

One approach is to create a new stylesheet...  or to edit the private stylesheet for the notebook.  

For an example of the latter, choose the Format>Edit Stylesheet menu item.
Then in the "Chooose a Style" dropdown menu choose "Output".  
Then select the cell bracket of the Output  that has been placed in the private stylesheet  and choose the Cell>ShowExpression menu item. 
In the displayed cell expression change it to
Cell[StyleData["Output"],ShowCellLabel->False]

Then unselect the  Cell>ShowExpression menu item and close the private stylesheet.  

The result is that your Output cells will no longer have the Out cell lables.

This page is interesting. It shows how to supress the In[]/Out[] commands only in a print-out of the document:

Switching both (in and out) off is easy: In the Option Inspector (under Format) choose "Global Preferences". Then go to:

Cell Options->CellLabels->Show Cell Labels

and untick the box.

I just noticed that you want to selectively suppress the Out without suppressing the In; that's more complicated.

Marco,

First, thank you for your very prompt and informative reply.

Your suggestion is very helpful since I would prefer both off instead of both on.

Regarding the more complicated objective of suppressing 'Out=' without suppressing 'In:=', can you give me any direction so I may chase the answer down?

Thanks, again!

Sincerely,

Jim
