I have Mathcad Prime 4.0 and would like to work with a dollar sign versus the little square symbol (see below). It seems possible in earlier versions of Mathcad but I can't figure it out. Any suggestions?
Maybe the attached helps?
Define $=square and make $ a unit should do it.

Yes, it does the job, but its a shame that its necessary to do so!
I'm doing something wrong. I can define a unit, but Mathcad's not taking the $. Is there another symbol for dollars (versus the keyboard) I should be using?
I can't tell from your view but your $ doesn't appear to be blue, which then it isn't a unit.
Thanks for everyone's help!
But is there a way to get a "$" as an output of a calculation versus the square as below? I attached the file for reference.
MathCad defaults to certain units; the square must be one. If you change the unit to "$" in your result, the "$" unit should remain if you change the values of "a" or "b".
Thank you for the help everyone!
One more question.
I've changed the output unit to the '$', but my matrix keeps the 'square'. Is it possible to format an element in a matrix so that it returns a '$' (see below)?
Unfortunately, you can't change the units in a matrix.
You could make a table:
