(Mathcad 15) How to insert button to calculate worksheet

Hi all!

 

I'm finishing up my newest Mathcad but, I know longer want to use Mathcad's automatic calculation, I would much rather calculate the entire worksheet at one time at the top of the sheet (due to it's size) I'm hoping someone can explain how I could use a push button to achieve this? See the files I have attached (I've included what I'm sorta looking for on top).

 

Thanks!

See Valery's answer above.

It means: You don't need (to place) a special button on your worksheet. The 'button' exists in the Mathcad application: just press [Ctrl-F9], or choose that option fom the menu: Tools>Caluclate>Calculate worksheet.

Note that this is more convenient than a button at the top of your sheet: you don't need to navigate (back) to the top to find a button to calculate the entire worksheet. Just press [Ctrl-F9] when the sheet is active/open in Mathcad.

All you need to do is to switch OFF automatic calculation, and save the worksheet with that setting.

 

Success!

As was already said Ctrl-F9 does the job quick and easy.

If for some reason you still would like a button, maybe the attached worksheet helps. Unfortunately I don't know how to make it work without having to press Ctrl-F9 at least once after loading the sheet.

 

BTW, I can't extract the mathcad file from your archive.

Ctrl F9 doesn't work on my computer since its bound to a hardware shortcut.. Any way to fix this?

Using the menu should work

A "hardware shortcut"... are you sure it's hardware ?
What happens when you press it?
