### View formulas as math equations

## Friendly reference names

Choose how referenced cells in a formula are displayed:

- Address
- Name
- Value
- Cell to the left
- Formatted value
- Table header

## Greek symbols

- If named ranges or ‘cells to the left’ contain the name of a Greek letter, such as alpha, beta, pi etc. then the equation will display the Greek symbol instead.
- Greek letters can also be written with a leading ‘\’ eg: \pi, \alpha. In fact, if a cell’s value is a sentence that includes Greek letters, then the letter names MUST be preceeded with ‘\’, otherwise they will be ignored.

### Insert equations

## Live equations (or static)

- Document your formulas by adding live (auto-updating) equations to your worksheet.
- Add the equation displayed in the Math Equation viewer to the current worksheet. ‘Live’ equations will auto-update when the cell’s formula changes.
- Static (non-live) equations won’t auto-update when the underlying formula changes.

## Copy & save

Copy or save equations to paste elsewhere into Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, or other Microsoft Office applications.

Copy or save as an equation object or as a image (PNG).

### Plot formulas (instantly)

## Instant

- There’s no need to create a data-series of values. Just point at a formula and create the plot

## Tweak

Any cell referenced in the formula can be selected as the Y-axis.

## Multiple plots

Multiple plots can be added to the same display – variants of one cell (different references as Y-axis), or other formulas from other cells.

### Transform text

## Greek letters

Instantly convert Greek letter names into actual Greek symbols by clicking the menu, or right-clicking.

## Subscripts & superscripts

Convert ‘_’ and ‘^’ into subscripts and superscripts.

### Create & update Word documents from Excel

## Insert formulas and values

Choose and insert cells, their formulas, names, descriptions etc. into Word documents.

## Live auto-updates

Auto-update the Word document when the underlying cells change value. Your Word document is always up-to-date.

## Engineering calculation sheets

Perfect for engineers to document their calculations and formulas.
