We need the possibility to make rtf files from the calculations, like it is possible in Mathcad 15, to put mathcad calculations in to a word document. Otherwise prime versions will not usefull for us.
I fully agree with Rene. This query was also raised on 25th may 2013 by Mark Buckton. It's a shortcoming in Prime (3.1) to not have the possibility to write out your calculations in a file format Word understands. I don't know in what kind of ivory tower these PTC developers live in.
Generally I make reports implementing figures and text for the report of Finite Element calculations. Word is a worldwide standard for making reports. Most engineers work with it since it has a lot of capabilities including API programming etc. I only use Mathcad to make some detail calculations and 'wish' to implement this in Word. This is simply impossible in Prime.
We can't wait till PTC develops a full text editor, which can compete with MS Word. We are waiting for decades now to have a solution and we are stuck with Mathcad 15. This issue prevents us to transfer to Prime.
So PTC should listen to their customers and be wise to integrate a way of writing out decent file types, which can be used in other programs like Word. Writing out Prime files in the XPS format and transforming it into a Word input file (e.g. by www.pdfaid.com) makes a mess out of the Prime file.
When can we expect a solution in this?
At this moment, definitely I'm considering using a substitute for Mathcad and leaving it, since this issue is not taken seriously by PTC for too long now.
