View hidden text, semicolons, or variables

Tedds automatically hides some elements in your calculations, such as intermediate calculations, delimiters, and variables. However, if necessary, you can decide to view the hidden elements. For more information, see the following paragraphs.

Note:

The following only applies to the Tedds Application.

Show or hide hidden text

Tedds automatically views the important steps of a calculation in the document. However, Tedds also needs to perform intermediate calculations in order to obtain their results for subsequent use. If all the calculations were visible, the complete set of calculations would be inordinately long and convoluted. Tedds handles this by using hidden text. This means that the calculations exist, but normally you neither see nor print them. However, if necessary, you can view the intermediate calculations.

To review hidden calculations, do the following:
  • On the View tab, select the Hidden Text option.

    You can now see all the calculations in the document.

Tip:

To hide the intermediate calculations again, clear the Hidden Text option.

Show or hide semicolons

Tedds can perform multiple calculations on the same line of the text. In these situations, semicolons (;) separate calculations from one another. In order to avoid any distraction to the flow of calculations, Tedds usually hides all semicolons. However, if necessary, you can view them to determine the different calculations.

To view the semicolons in your calculations, do the following:
  • On the View tab, select the Semicolons option.

    You can now see all the semicolons in the document.

Tip:

To hide the semicolons again, clear the Semicolons option.

View variables

When Tedds performs calculations, it stores the results as variables. Generally, you see the variables in the calculations, although some of them may be in hidden text.

To quickly view the final result of a particular variable:
  1. On the Home tab, click Variables.

    The Variables dialog box opens.

    The dialog box contains the following tabs:
    • The Manage tab: allows you to delete variables in your calculation.

    • The Document tab: allows you to view all the variables in the current document.

    • The System tab: allows you to view all the pre-defined variables that Tedds recognizes.
