Change of ORIGIN problem

Change of ORIGIN problem

I have a problem with ORIGIN in Mathcad Express 7.  I use the default ORIGIN at the start of a worksheet, do some calculations, then change to ORIGIN = 1, do some calculations, then change back to ORIGIN = 0 and repeat the original calculations.   However, whilst Mathcad reports that ORIGIN has changed to 1, it seems to behave as though the ORIGIN is still 1.   I don't know what I'm doing, or thinking, wrong.

 

The attached Mathcad Express 7 worksheet may, or may not, show the problem.

Thanks for the reply.   Whilst looking to see what you were referring to, I found the problem.  When I set ORIGIN:=0 (in the 2nd blue highlighted region), for some reason it set the Label to "Variable".

 

Changing the Label to "System" produced the desired result.

 

Cheers,

Hi there

 

you need to set ORIGIN:=0 resp ORIGIN:=1 - not ORIGIN=0

Welcome to the magical world of Autolabelling in Prime...

It was having a vague recollection of you mentioning it in a recent post that made me check.   

 

I've got used to the fact that Prime doesn't regard different fonts as being different Labels, unlike M15.  For various nefarious reasons, I change specific regions' Math Fonts to suit my needs, so the difference in font style between System and Variable didn't pop out as something that needed investigating.

 

Cheers,
