Unable to type a string into a variable definition

Hi there

Can anyone help with the above problem? It appears either a setting has been toggled off or the shortcut keys have been altered.

Either way, I am now unable to type a " to type any string into any of my Mathcad worksheets

Any advice welcome.

Thanks

Re: Unable to type a string into a variable definition

What version of Mathcad are you using and can you provide an example worksheet?

Thanks for your quick reply Mike.

I am using version 15. I have attached a blank copy of the offending sheet.

Re: Unable to type a string into a variable definition

Thanks again Mike.

I have Mathcad open twice, i.e. in two different instances and not just two different windows. It appears that the problem only affects the worksheet in the second instance of Mathcad. I still can't type a quotation mark in the second instance.

Thanks for your help anyway, I will open the worksheet with my working instance of Mathcad!

Re: Unable to type a string into a variable definition

I have just replicated your method and defined a string without a problem in both worksheets.

What version of M15 are you running?

And how many licenses of Mathcad you use (in a license file in "Summary Table" there is a field "Qty" ("Quantity"))?
