Representing Del Operations [curl(u), div(u), gradient(u)] in Mathcad PRIME

Hello All.

This question explicitly is addressing Mathcad PRIME (Current Version 8). **Not Mathcad 15.**

Is there a workaround on how to "easily" employ the Del Operators such as gradient, curl, and divergence in Mathcad Prime. We can do it "long-hand," but not like what we had with Mathcad 15, so the Mathcad Prime presentation of the equation is more intuitive to students and closer to what we write on the chalkboard. I can roll with the use of the Einsteinian Notation or Vector/Del or even just plain grad(), curl(), Div() notation.

Cheers and Thanks.

There were attempts to implement sort of a gradient operator in Prime here in the forum in the past. But usually the number of variables was either fix (a gradient function just working for functions in two variables) or had to be an additional function argument. By far not as versatile as the gradient operator in real Mathcad and sure not looking close to what you would write on the chalkboard.

For example:

But according to a recent posting of VladimirN

at least a gradient operator is planned for Prime 9. Given from the very first post in that thread it was already planned for P8 ...
