I am working with another engineer. When I open his sheets there are problems with text overlapping one another. If it were screen size I would think that it would still print out ok, but it does not. It prints the sheets with the overlapping print. Is there a way to fix this.
We are both using Mathcad 15. I know at the bottom - the table is blowing up - I don't know how to stop that - but there is no reason why it is doing that at the top.
In Mathcad 15, you can edit/select all, then format/separate regions.
Unfortunately that will almost certainly destroy a lot of formatting.
There is also the possibility ( more work) of changing the styles (text and variable) to smaller fonts.
This usually happens if the sheet was created using a different zoom factor than 100 %.
If this sheet is then open with zoom 100%, the text regions for some reason are erroneously formatted a tiny bit too narrow and so you experience a line break in the text region, resulting in the text region possibly overlapping other regions.
Its quite tedious to have to regrip every text region border an make it a liitle wider so the text again fits in just one line.
I don't know of any help other than using zoom factor 100% only when creating the sheet.
The problem with the Excel table overlapping (underlapping?) the other regions seems to be a different effect, though. Not sure but perhaps a font problem?
Yeah, Werner - I think you are right. When I change the zoom to 125 it reads much better, but it does not fix it for printing. Also the table is still blown up. I down size it by dragging but that is kind of a pain.
Its a very old bug through many versions of Mathcad and the only "solution" is to keep zoom always at 100% when you edit/save .
Repairing an already "infected" sheet would mean to manually readjust the right border of every text region at zoom level 100%. which is a lot of tedious work for larger sheets. Not sure if the problem with the table is related to the text region problem but I guess - no.
Since via software, there is little you can do to eliminate this MAthcad defect, ..... a way to proceed to restore everything as in the original file, is to make a print of the original worksheet on the computer where It was created. Then, reopening the file on another computer, proceed with the reorganization,following the previously made printing.
