## Equation Break line

`Good night channel friends, I'm formatting a sheet in mathcad prime 5, and the following happened: the equation got bigger than the sheet, I would like to introduce a line break in the equation, but the CTRL + Shift + Enter command does not work. The activation icon (Equation Break is erased all the time, as shown).`

If you are talking about the result of a symbolic evaluation I guess you are out of luck.

If you are talking about the input of an equation you may try to use Ctrl-Shift-+, Ctrl-Shift--, Ctrl Shift-* or Ctrl-Shift-/ to insert a line brake.

Note that the "Equation break" option only is active when an operator (+,-,* or /) is highlighted.

So you may enter 1+2+ and then the cursor left key (to highlight the last + sign) and then Ctrl-Shift-Enter.

Its easier in that case to use 1+2 and then Ctrl-Shift-+ to achieve the same effect.

For further questions its always better to attach the worksheet for clarification.
