Problem with collapsible area and page break

Problem with collapsible area and page break

Hi

When I have a collapsible area followed by a page break and I close the area,

empty pages remain above the page break (see attached file with an example).

I didn't have this problem with Mathcad 15.

 

In addition with Mathcad 15 I was able to set page breaks inside a collapsible area, which is very

handy option when the collapsible area is relatively large. To my understanding naming of areas is also missing from Prime...

 

Any ideas how to solve these problems? Thanks.

What version of Mathcad Prime are you using?

The attached file is a Prime 7 file...

Yes, I'm using Prime 7

I have this problem, too. I've been hoping that PTC fixes the page formatting issues since 2017. 

 

I work around this by starting my large area on a new page and making sure that the area extends to the bottom of whatever page it lands on.

Are these issues with collapsible areas fixed in Prime 8? If collapsible areas are large, it would be very handy to be able to set page breaks inside them.

I can't see any evidence that Areas have been improved in Mathcad Prime 8.   If an Area can be named, it's not obvious how to do it, Areas can't be inserted into an Area, and page breaks cannot be inserted; indeed, the Area and Page Break buttons in the Ribbon are greyed out.

 

I can't see any Area upgrade plans on the Mathcad Prime roadmap.
