MathCAD vs. Word....

MathCAD vs. Word....

MathCAD vs. Word....

Is there an EASY way of inserting mathCad documents into word, either as a file or a picture which extends to many pages? When I attempt to insert files, I cannot "drag" it to several pages.

RE: MathCAD vs. Word....

I do it.   The easiest way is to export the Mathcad worksheet has a .rtf file and then open the .rtf in word.   It works with Open Office too.

Sometimes I copy and paste.   I haven't had much luck with drag a drop.   There is kind of a trick getting the cursor to the right position before pasting in the Word document.

I also export Mathcad .rtf and import them into power point.

The most reliable method for me is a paste special with a DIB format.  Quashes the worksheet, but it'll stay put and not get further munged.

Paste special as a Mathcad Document also works most of the time.

Note that the default paste into Word is RTF, but you can do a Paste Special and select DIB or Mathcad document, as you prefer.

RE: MathCAD vs. Word....

I tried the ".rtf-method", but all of the expressions came left alligned on a vertical string, not so very pretty... What is DIB?
