There are finally enough features to make the switch to PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 worthwhile; however, it will not be without some frustration. PTC Mathcad Prime is different than Mathcad 15, and there will be a learning curve as you begin using it. Many familiar keystrokes will not work with Prime, and other familiar keystrokes cause different actions to occur. PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 still does not have all of the features that are available in Mathcad 15.
PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 has feature and function improvements over Mathcad 15 that make the switch worthwhile. The purpose of this chapter is to help make a smoother transition from Mathcad 15 to PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0.
