How to print a very long equation

I get a very long equation in my mathcad document, and I'd like to print a pdf document of it to be shared.

Unfortunatly the equation will be cut .. and it's not nice. How can I do?

I think it should be better to print something like a+b+c ...+z if the space is not enoght, and at least if anyone is very interested to see the equation he can use the mathcad to see a complete version.

Thankyou for any suggestion

Re: How to print a very long equation

It is possible to wrap an equation that you're inputting; a keystroke combination (cntrl-enter) will fold to the next line with a plus sign.

Which Mathcad are you using?

I create from very long equation a picture, correct it, insert it back in the document and print it.

the (ctrl-enter) works in mathcad v15. it needs to be added to prime!!!!

Re: How to print a very long equation

The ctrl-enter in MC 15 is very limited. We would need a more powerful way of dealing with long expressions in both versions and for for calculated expressions as well as for typed-in terms. Prime offers the scaleable windows for long expressions - I would like to have them scrollable and the option of an automatic intelligent line break. As it is now I have to widen the region to the max if I would like to see the end of a long result - not very comfortable.

I agree. We also need to be able to equation break with a - sign not just a +.

David,

one plus in M' 3 is that you can manually reduce the size of the math equation. Not great but is a slight improvement.
