Formatting Results in MC15

Till now I have been using MathCad 13 on Windows XP. I downloaded the MathCad 15 on trial basis.

I am seeing strange behavior regarding the formatting of unit exponents in results. I can create a simple worksheet in 13 to show a variable as a result. It looks normal. If I open the same file in 15, it apears that the exponent inherits the formating of the number in front of the units. So if the number in front of the units is in exponential notation, the unit exponents will be in exponential notation as well.

This is crazy and hard to read.

Do anybody know what is going on or how to fix?

Thanks,

Re: Formatting Results in MC15

I have found that by manually entering the results units, things get back to normal.

Does anybody else have this problem?

Re: Formatting Results in MC15

I don't have M15, but that problem should have been fixed in M14.

Re: Formatting Results in MC15

I see the same result in Mathcad 15, so I'll log it.

It should already be logged. It's an old bug that has come up many times. I'm surprised it hasn't been fixed.

Re: Formatting Results in MC15

I see this in MC 14 when the region's significant digits for display are set with trailing zeroes turned on.

Re: Formatting Results in MC15

My bad, it apparently hadn't gotten fixed, although I show the problem reported and logged Sept 15, 2006. Apparently, it was easier to break the system than to fix it.

Re: Formatting Results in MC15

Eden,

Pardon my ignorance, but what do you mean by "break the system"?
