Control of font size on iterative

Control of font size on iterative

Control of font size on iterative



I use Mathcad 2000, which (in my view) is the best ever version...


To compute the equation for a range of variables, ie.

t:= 10, 11; 20

A vertical table is formed at t = of 10, 11, 12, 13..20.

Can anyone explain how the font size of output table is controlled,
or, how to ensure that all output tables (on a sheet) use same font size.

(I am getting some at 11 point, and some at 12 point - when they should
all be 12 point.)

RE: Control of font size on iterative


Oh dear. I shall have to continue with my current fix: - which is:
redo (the problem) on a new sheet, and then cut and paste (which I
have done for many years).

But at least I know, it wasn't me!

MathCAD 15 is very similar to MathCAD 2000, which I only purchased
to obtain Roark and Young in digital form.

I am told, that the best software for me is always the one I am familiar
with. I think I started with Word 1 (on a Tandy machine) and surprise,
surprise, the keystrokes are the same on the very latest version.

Regards and thanks

LOL, surprised you aren't still using WordStar or Word Perfect, but maybe you're not quite old enough for that, like I am winky smile

Keystrokes are always fun to spring on someone who's never learned them.

I actually reverted back to M14 last year, but that's because my laptop was not very friendly toward M15, AND I don't actually use most of the advanced features of M15, or M14, for that matter. To be honest, I've stopped paying attention to the font sizes in the tables, and I pretty much never use MC for anything but backup-chart type documentation; most everything is graphed in Excel anyway, and writing a lot text in MC is like using Notepad to do word processing.

TTFN (ta ta for now)

RE: Control of font size on iterative



I am actually using Word from a 1997 data OE CD - works fine. I do have more sophisticated versions.

Have never really got absorbed into MathCAD 14: I do find that MathCAD 2000 gives me everything I
want: I have about 70,000 sheets - 8,000 of which are connected with EN 13121-3 (and two years of
my limited life).

I have just done another five column iteration and font size was consistent.

But at least you explained there was no fix and I just have to live with it.

My thanks for your help.
