I have two input lines in a notebook at sagecloud, and evaluating either evaluates both, and prints the output for both below. How do I separate them into two separate cells? (As I might with cmd-shift-D in mathematica.)

I don't know if this would work, but in the Sage notebook (not the same as SMC) this works:

Press ctrl-; in a cell to split it into two cells, and ctrl-backspace to join them. Press ctrl-enter to split a cell and evaluate both pieces.

So maybe some variant on ctrl+something would work.

This answer originally also referred to embedded Sage cell instances, which can be separated; however, one has to hard-code that into an HTML page, so it wasn't relevant to *this* question.

ctrl+Enter splits a cell in two (and evaluates the lower one).

To join cells, just delete the line separating them (no modifier key necessary).
