PTC Mathcad Prime 8 has now released!   @CatMcchad a quick interview with PTC Mathcad's product manager, @amcgough, for this blog article about what's new and exciting in Mathcad Prime 8, what new functionality users and veterans will look forward to using, and how the Mathcad team decides what new functionality to put into each release. Much of that is customer-driven, and Andy cited several delivered requests from the Mathcad Ideas board on this very community. Read the interview here: https://www.mathcad.com/en/blogs/why-prime8-andy-mcgough     Andy will also be available next week (March 22 at 10:00 Eastern) for a webinar about what's new in Mathcad Prime 8, featuring demos of the new functionality, plus a live Q&A portion with Andy that yours truly will be moderating. Register for that here (or catch the replay-on-demand after the fact): https://www.mathcad.com/en/resources/webcast/whats-new-mathcad-8   Happy calculating~

Hi all! I'm pleased to announce that while Mathcad Prime 8 is releasing March 2022, we at PTC have just published a blog article letting you all know in advance what is being included! And PTC Community are the first ones to know. Check it out: https://www.mathcad.com/en/blogs/whats-mathcad-prime8   We'll post another announcement when Mathcad Prime 8 is actually released.   In the meantime, we've opened up registration for our accompanying What's New in Mathcad Prime 8 webinar coming March 22, 2022. I plan to moderate it, with Mathcad product manager Andrew McGough demoing the functionality in much more detail. The webinar will end with a live question and answer session.   Mathcad Prime 8 Webinar March 22   (Note that I'm not able to answer your Mathcad Prime 8 questions on this post, but Andy will certainly be able to in that webinar.)   Thanks!

We received an email inquiry which I had forwarded to a Mathcad product manager. I thought it may be useful for others, too, so instead of just emailing the response to the customer, I am posting it here as well.   ------- We need to convert .mcd to .mcdx...We have Prime 6.0.0.0 What do we need and how much does the program cost to do this conversion. ------- The .mcdx file format is Mathcad Prime. The .mcd file format is for earlier versions of the legacy software, later versions of the legacy software use the .xmcd file format.   If this customer uses Mathcad Prime 6.0 there is a converter that comes with the software they can use to convert all .xmcd and most .mcd files to .mcdx - ‘most’ .mcd as we only go back as far as something like legacy Mathcad 7, which was late 90’s I think.   From the Input/Output tab in Mathcad Prime 6.0 they can find an ‘xmcd/mcd converter’ button - clicking that will open the converter. They will need the latest version of Mathcad 15.0 (M050) for that to work, and they can download that currently from the support software download site (Prime 7.0 converter does not need Mathcad 15.0 for the converter to work). -------- Hope this helps! For additional questions, don't hesitate to open a Support ticket!
