Stop Units Reduction in Results

Stop Units Reduction in Results

Stop Units Reduction in Results

Trying to utilize units in Mathcad is frustrating me.

My equation results are always output with the units reduced to base dimensions.  For example, a torque value in in-lbf gets returned as lb-in^2/s^2.

Is there a way to stop this function of unit reduction?  I see nothing in the help files and haven't had any luck with web searches, though it seems this must be a common problem.

RE: Stop Units Reduction in Results

It annoys the heck out of me too.  I just click the little box to the left and put in what I want.  It gets old doing it every time, but it is still better that doing the calcs in Excel or on a piece of paper.
