Text comments, subroutines, better word processing and graphics

Text comments, subroutines, better word processing and graphics

  1. In Programming within MCAD I'd like:
    1. the ability to add Text Comments in subroutines
    2. a simple way to add your own subroutines into the function library (or even better a separate user defined set of libraries)
  2. Better Word Processing capabiities
  3. Graphics
    1. Publication quality 2D graphics as an option
    2. Simpler user defined scales & ranges in 3D plots
    3. Beter Labelling on Plots
      1. User defined fonts
      2. Greek letters
      3. subscripts and superscripts included
      4. saving graph as a jpeg file through simple click and file

Can we not do this and place the pre-defined functions in collapsed areas?

Using the format function does not achieve anything, but it does no harm. If it's not assigned to a local variable the function is not even executed. If it is assigned to a local variable then it just returns your comment string. But you could just put the sting "Comments" in on it's own.

Do you mean change the font on a graph?

      1. saving graph as a jpeg file through simple click and file

A nice workaround is to copy and paste the graph into IrfanView, which is a free download.

I use string constants as comments in subroutines - see one example:

Please, please tell me how you managed having the negative indent to the left side in your second line !

thanks a lot!

Isn't Valerys image showing different function, not a negative indent?

Sorry, it is only picture from my book - not real worksheet. I have edited this picture (made the negative indent) for the save space in the book

My readers know it from from preface.

Only Mathcad MM can do it - see http://communities.ptc.com/message/153976
