Hi. I have been encountering some odd issues while copying expressions and eqautions in Mathcad Prime.
It would seem that everytime I copy an expression containing a variable it doesnt fully understand how to work with it afterwards.
This has been accouring both on Mathcad Prime 6 and 7.
Its quite hard to explain and show for that matter. But let say that I define a function f(x)=23x.
If I were to copy this expression from and, let say differentiate it, and afterwards create an equation from the output, it would be unable to understand x, as if x now has another meaning.
This works fine if I abstain from copying the expressions and instead write them manually.
I have attached a small expample of this happening as a PNG.
I have failed to find a solution myself, but I have a slight feeling that it might be because of the PC that Im using.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Interesting. It seems to be a question of Math Styles. When entering f(x), both f and x have Math Style "-". When entering f2(x), both f2 and x have Math Style "Variable". Copying and pasting f2(x) retains the styles. However, the x entered as the solve argument picks up the style "-".
Changing the Math Style to "Variable" gives the expected result (Style is under the Math Ribbon).

You sir are a saint! It was exactly that. You have no idea how happy I were to see someone else recreating the issue. I was on the edge of insanity.
Have a great weekend! you are a lifesaver!
