As it was a case in the previous versions of Mathcal, for example in 14 and 15, I ask you to add a capability of breaking a long mathematical expression (equation), which would occupy more than 1 row, into several lines, if required. I do many calculations involving that kind of long equations pertinent to, for example, material balance calculations of chemical processes. To my knowledge, the new generation Mathcad Prime (up to version 3.1) does not offer that useful capability. I found this issue irritating and demotivating towards Mathcad Prime and, for that reason, I still use version 15 as a principal tool to do my work, although I have Mathcad Prime 3.1 installed. I am confident that there a many more engineers and scientists who will appreciate this improvement. I addressed this issue many months ago when speaking to your South African representatives (Product One) receiving unsatisfactory advice of how to overcome that weakness. However, fixing that problem is in fact is your job, not of the foreign agent who is not involved in any development of the software. I am confident that there are many engineers and scientists, who will appreciate the suggested improvement. I will appreciate if my suggestion will be taken seriously and the requested improvement will be implemented soon. Regards, J.A. Latusek. Samancor Chrome South Africa.

In order to make it easier to publish articles in professional journals using Mathcad models, I would like to have preset document styles that satisfy the style guides for the most popular journals, and/or a facility for the user to create these easily and add them in to the program for later selection. For example, I am attaching a template worksheet that satisfies the International Journal of Chemical Reactor Engineering. In addition to having the templates for different journals. we need to be able to change the style for an existing worksheet. This would allow us to choose the journal after the worksheet is complete. Currently, Mathcad can't change the style of an entire worksheet. Finally, some of the journals may insist on left AND right justification. I don't know about Prime, but Mathcad 15 doesn't allow this. Fortunately, the journal mentioned above is willing to relax that preference. Note: Until this option is present in Mathcad, maybe we could have a special location on the PTC.com site for these templates for sharing?
