I have a long equation and I am interested if there is the way to split it to two rows - see the attached file. I found keyboard shortcut CTRL+ENTER to do this but seem that it does not work correctly. Thanx.


RE: continue on the next row

What do you mean by "seem that it does not work correctly"?

RE: continue on the next row

when I hit CTRL+ENTER the placeholder apears on the place of red triangle - see the image, but I would like to continue on the begining of the next row - red asterix. Furthermore when I try to continue and write comma, this comma is written to the first row not to the second - the red arrow on the picture.

RE: continue on the next row

Thank you excognito ! As you wrote - not elegant but useful - I will use it.


RE: continue on the next row


that comma doesn't belong there, I think it is a syntax error.  Ctrl-Enter is the way to make a continuation on the next line.  It's not documented, but left over from an older version of mathcad.  I don't know a way to make the continued line start where your asterisk is though.  You can try invoking the ctrl-enter before the first plus to get it closer to the location of your asterisk.
