Merge 2 prime files or worksheets

Hello,

Can you merge or join 2 mathcad prime files together and save it as one file? I don't want to use the copy and paste, I have different headers, footers etc, and copy/paste creates a mess.

I guess it may be doable, by messing around with the individual .xml files. But I'd expect, if..... you succeed in doing that, you may get a real merge, that is: equations on top of each other because they are on the same position of the sheet...

I suggest you use copy and paste to copy just the equations over. That's safer.

 

Success!

Thanks LucMeekes, is there an insert option available, like insert these pages from this file at this location in this file. (something similar to MS Word)

If you just want them to work together, you might consider the 'include' function.  

Otherwise I think you are stuck with copy-paste.  Not sure why your headers or footers makes a difference.  But copy paste can create a mess since it doesn't always create room for what you are pasting. Option 1 - manually add sufficient space on where you're going to paste.  Option 2 - I've found that keeping everything inside collapsable areas works well.  You can copy and paste the areas without issues.  (Although using areas tends to bring on other issues - fix your GUI PTC!!!)

Input/Output tab at the top.  I guess it is a feature, not a function.
