PTC Mathcad Prime is the industry standard for engineering mathematics software, enabling you to solve your most complex problems, and share your engineering calculations. And with PTC Mathcad Prime, engineering calculations just got better. This release introduces key application, symbolic engine, numeric engine, and usability enhancements.
PTC Mathcad Prime has all your engineering notebook's ease-of-use and familiarity with live mathematical notation and units intelligence. Most importantly, the calculation capabilities produce far more accurate results than a spreadsheet can provide. And you can present your calculations with plots, graphs, text, and images in a single, professionally-formatted document. Nobody needs specialized skills to understand PTC Mathcad data.
Take advantage of PTC Mathcad's Prime's exciting capabilities in helping to protect your intellectual property, interoperability with third-party applications, and usability enhancements such as equation breaking, 2D plot visualization, and improved document performance. When your intellectual property is shareable, easily readable, and lives in one place, you've moved from managing information to making it a source of competitive advantage.

There are several updates to application-level functionality, which include important features requested by users.
You can now set warnings for when either user- or system- defined identifiers such as variables, constants, and functions are redefined in your worksheet. This allows you to avoid unknowingly changing the definition of critical parameters.
We have added a partial derivative operator in the Operators menu for you to use to define calculations that include partial derivatives.
You can independently turn on header, footer, or page view border with the new show frame functionality.
And to enhance the usability of the combo-box input control added in the last release, in Prime 8 you can copy multiple values and paste them into the combo-box edit mode, making combo-box input control creation easier.
Symbolic and Numeric Engines Enhancements
There are many customer-driven enhancements to the symbolics engine in Mathcad Prime 8, as well as new functionality not seen in previous versions of Mathcad. On top of general keyword improvements, there has been significant improvement and expansion in use and performance for integral functions, such as Fourier, Laplace, and Ztrans and their inverses. Two new modifiers have been added to allow manipulation of the normalization and oscillatory factors for use with the Fourier keyword. Calculus operators such as Limits, Integrals, and Derivatives have been improved and cover expanded use cases. And there is now better auto-labelling of undefined variables in symbolic results.
You can now see on a worksheet tab when a worksheet is unsaved and can close a worksheet directly from its tab. You can move worksheets to rearrange their order. Each tab now includes an right mouse button menu that provides access to useful actions, including calculate, move tab, copy full file path name, open containing folder, and close this or other tabs. And there are several smaller usability updates, like the new clear text format command and ctrl/wheel zoom.
Save as HTML legacy worksheet view
And finally, a new Save as HTML option has been added to the legacy worksheet converter. This allows you to create a view of your legacy PTC Mathcad worksheet before you convert it to PTC Mathcad Prime format and refer to it to help rework your converted worksheet where necessary.
