Mathcad Prime 3 does not recognize the "^" key

Mathcad Prime 3 does not recognize the "^" key

I have noticed that if I attempt to write the exponentiation symbol by pressing the "^" key, Mathcad Prime 3 displays the following sequence:

instead of the placeholder for the exponent.

I must select the symbol from the menu bar or I must type ALT+094 on the keypad if I want to write an exponent.

This happens using the Italian keyboard.

The same keyboard works correctly using Mathcad 15 on the same computer.

Anyone else noticed this?

Thank You

Yes, see here: http://communities.ptc.com/message/219353#219353

So you see, PTC should know about this for quite a long time, but obviously is not willing or not able to fix it.

Very annyoing and amateurish work.

Thank you for the quick (but not encouraging) answer.

I have logged a new Support Case for this issue.
