writing a subtraction formula

hi

I would like to display the third angle with a degree which is computed based on subtraction of the two angles from 180 degrees.

But somehow, I only managed to write "180 - alpha". I tried to append "-beta" but it appeared as another box...

Appreciate help!!

Thanks!

I am not able to replicate your issue.

The easiest way is by selecting the angles names from the Objects dropdown list. Also ensure that the cursor is inside the grey box.

If you are still unable to do it, please post here your file.

certainly there is a problem; alt+O, Alt+A etc do not work inside an editing box

meantime type 180°-α-β outside the box then select and copy (ctrl+C), create an empty box and paste inside the box

hi

thanks for all the replies!

Have tried out typing outside box, but seems like the box auto appears whenever i choose beta from Obj list.

Have uploaded my file, can search under my id"northy cold", just one resource.

I realised I have another issue. I need the numbers to be rounded to the nearest whole, so even if i create this text to show the result of 180 minus off the two other angles, the angles still do not add up to 180. This is 'cos the system seems to take 180 to minus off the exact value at backend... See example below.

Is there a way to overcome this?

Thanks!

  1. type 180º - Alt+a - Alt+b
  2. open an empty box
  3. copy and paste the step 1
