The Cell Menu: Xic Cell Navigation and Information

The Cell Menu contains the Push/Pop commands that enable pushing the viewing/editing context into the hierarchy, and returning. Other commands provide information about cells and allow other manipulations.

In Xic, there is a notion of the ``current cell''. This is the cell hierarchy shown in the main window. The current cell is acted on by many of the commands in Xic, and in particular only the current cell can be modified. The current cell can be set in many ways, including using the Open command in the File Menu, or the Cells Listing panel from the present menu. One can set the current cell to a subcell with the Push command. This can be used in conjunction with the Info command in the View Menu to push to the cell containing a selected object, to any depth in the hierarchy. The Pop command can be used to climb back up the hierarchy to the original current cell.
