Multi-line equation editing

  • How can I tell mathcast where to start the next line of a multi-line math equation?

    I can see a special character inserted for math equations that I've imported, but cannot copy that character into my new equations.

    Thanks

      Technically you can't have multi line equations. What you can do, is insert two equations in a vector. Look in the Help->using MathCast->Rapid Mathline. However, this equations would be aligned to the center, and not to the left.

      If you have imported a multi line equation, it probaably uses a form of vector that centers to the left. And MathCast doesn't fully support that.

      i can tell you something about multi line equations.
      i think that you can have it if you fix DOM in mathcast.

      i can give an example:
      1. open http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/demo/tester.html
      2. put this text to edit field:
      <math xmlns="&mathml;"><mrow>
      <mrow>        <mi>A</mi>      <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>      </mrow>     
      <mrow>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>      </mrow>     
      <mrow>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>      </mrow>
      <mrow>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>      </mrow>
      <mrow>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>      </mrow>
      <mrow>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>      </mrow>
      <mrow>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>      </mrow>
      </mrow></math>
      3. render mathml
      4. you need to make browser window width small, so this equation get out the border of mathml render box.
      5. then change text to:
      <math xmlns="&mathml;">
      <mrow>        <mi>A</mi>      <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>      </mrow>     
      <mrow>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>      </mrow>     
      <mrow>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>      </mrow>
      <mrow>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>      </mrow>
      <mrow>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>      </mrow>
      <mrow>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>      </mrow>
      <mrow>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>        <mi>A</mi>      </mrow>
      </math>
      6....
      7.PROFIT! i mean that equation must came multi line.

      so if you fix you DOM to write files like in exaple, equation would be multi line.

      sorry for my bad english.
