# Equations in text MathCad Help

This section describes how to insert equations into your text regions. Equations inserted into text have the same properties as those in the rest of your worksheet. You can edit them using the methods described in Chapter 3, “Editing Equations.” Entering an equation into text can affect the spacing between the lines of a text
paragraph. If the equation is taller than a single line, the spacing between all the lines in the paragraph adjusts to make room for the equation

Inserting an equation into text

You can place an equation into text either by creating a new equation or by pasting an existing equation into a text region. To add a new equation into a text region or a paragraph, follow these steps: Click in the text region or paragraph to  place the insertion point where you want the equation to start. The universal gravitational constant, G, has the value Iand can be used to determine the acceleration of a less massive object toward a more massive object.
• Choose Math Region from the Insert menu. The universal gravitational constant, G, has the value and can be used to determine the acceleration of a less massive object toward a more massive object.
• Type in the equation just as you would in a math region.
• When you’ve finished typing in the equation, click on any text to return to the text region. Mathcad adjusts the line spacing in the text region to accommodate the embedded math region. To paste an existing equation into a text region, follow these steps: The universal gravitational constant, G, has the .11 3 value G := 6.672591 0 .~ and can be used kg.} to determine the acceleration of a less massive object toward a more massive object.
• Select the equation you want to paste into the text.
• Choose Copy from the Edit menu.
• Clic]; in the text region to place the insertion point where you want the equation to start.
• Choose Paste from the Edit me

Editing equations in text

Once you’ve embedded an equation into a text region, you can edit it in the same way you edit equations anywhere else. For detailed procedures, see Chapter 3, “Editing Equations.”

Disabling embedded equations

When you first insert an equation into text, it behaves just like an equation in a math region; it affects calculations throughout the worksheet. If you want the equation to be purely cosmetic, you can disable it so that it no longer calculates. To do so:
• Click on the equation you want to disable.
• Choose Properties from the Format menu. Click on the Calculation tab.
• Click in the check box next to “Disable Evaluation.”
• Click “OK.”
Once you’ve done so, the equation will neither affect nor be affected by other equations in the worksheet. To turn it back on, remove the check box next to “Disable Evaluation” in the Properties dialog box.For a more general discussion of disabling and locking equations, see the section “Disabling equations” in.
