It would be nice if there were some kind of indication of where the page end (end of margin), a line or something.
There could also be a line when you go to another page.


The unit gram is in Smath Studio shortened 'gm'. Normaly it would be 'g'. I know that g is already used to the gravitational acceleration and G to Gauss.
But would it perhaps be possible to make 'g' be grams or maybe use 'gram'. 'gm' seems not always logical.

Yes, I plan to create indication of pages (according to print settings) in the nearest future.

Regarding 'gm': initially I've implemented gram as 'gm' because of the same unit name in Mathcad. Not sure I should change it (replace gravitational acceleration or something similar), but I can easily add gram name to the units list.
By the way, you can simply test it by yourself while I'm working on the new version of SMath Studio:
  1. Find a file entries\Units.xml in the installation directory of the program (standard path to this file is C:\Program Files (x86)\SMath\SMath Studio\entries\Units.xml)
  2. Find the lines about gram and add new name to the unit as shown below (your line must not be a first for the parent tag):

  3. Start the program and test it:

Please, note, that if you save the results to a file and send it to someone with default Units.xml file - your file will be calculated with non converted units! Warning: don't remove or change any existing entries from Units.xml - it may cause errors for the files created earlier! Please, be careful with it!

Best regards, Andrey Ivashov.

Hi Andrey

Perfect I will look foreward to pageindication.
And with the units, I can easily see the sense in following MathCad. But I thiunk it would be good to add gram also.

Regards, Martin
