V can be Volts (a unit) or V a velocity in the same program and the reader could tell whether it was a unit or a variable. Imagine all units in blue - easy to read. Or units in a special font.
"...Imagine all units in blue - easy to read. Or units in a special font." This is already implemented in MC Prime and one of the few things that PTC got right as it actually is an improvement over Mathcad 15.
In my Mathcad Prime 5.0 the units are coming up in blue, but if I try to change to say red or green, it changes the whole expression to red or green. The same thing if I change fonts. I do not appear to be able to create a new variable that is spelled identical to an old variable by changing the font or color. Mathcad is case sensitive, but does not appear to be font or color sensitive. Maybe I don't know the right procedure to do this.
Thank you for your interest in this topic,
You can do all of that using labels and you can change the labels to any font or color you want. I use it all the time
Thanks for taking the time to respond.
Here is what I had in mind:
Xave:=3, Xave:=7. Then if I use Xave I want to retrieve 3 and if I use Xave I want to retrieve 7. (For example, imagine I have a red team and a blue team that I am doing identical calculations for.) However, if I set the red variable to 3 and then the blue variable to 7, the red variable changes to 7 because it is actually the same variable.
1) I cannot change the font color for just part of a variable (like a label subscript)
2) Changing the color of the variable doesn't make it a new variable (changing the case of a part of a variable does make it a different variable: x_ave is a different variable than X_ave). If you can make variables case sensitive, why not also make them font and color sensitive as well?
Imagine Mathcad Prime 7.0 in 2021 having less colour options than Microsoft paint in 1995.
