## Is it possible to substitute a dollar sign for the Money 'square'?

Hello,

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?

Thanks,

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.

Hello,

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.

Thanks,

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:

Adding another row to a table...
