I try to run a quantum notebook in Azure Quantum Workspace.

The note bokk is Python 3.

I would like to run a single cell in Q# mode, e.g. I type "%%qsharp"

But I'm getting:

UsageError: Cell magic %%qsharp not found.

??

shouldn't it be possible to switch between Python and Q# back and forth in same notebook?

    I figured it out (-:

    In a cell before matic command is used, one have to do this:

    import qsharp
