# Splitting long equations to Multiple Lines

## Splitting long equations to Multiple Lines

(OP)
It seems to me that the help function in MathCAD has gotten progressively less useful in each version.  I'm using V14 and trying to split a long equaiton onto multiple lines so it will print.  The cntl Enter combination will split a + or minus, but it just drops the next line down below where it already was (kind of worthless) and it only works for summation.

Is there a similar command for multiplication?  I couldn't even find the "cntl Enter" key combination in the help, but I remember it from V2 and it still works.

I have Ver. 13, not 14 and it moves the next line to the left, not straight down:

#### CODE

a =: b + c + d + e
becomes
a =: b + c ...
+ d + e
Is this another reason not to upgrade?

I have version 14.0 M020 and it works just like your version 13.

OK so it isn't straight down, but it is way indented (I use pretty long function names so I can tell what they mean).
