Headings & Comments

Hey! You've got to hide your math away (sometimes)...

If you need to "hide" parts of your expression from Soulver, use a heading (marked with #) or a comment.

Four comment styles are supported: labels, slash comments, quotation marks, and parenthesis (in certain cases).

# headings

Use the # character to indicate a heading line:

# This is a heading

You can customise the size of headings, as well as their color (and the color of the # symbol itself) from Soulver's styling preferences.

There is also an option to strip heading symbols when exporting into PDF or printing.


Use a label at the beginning of a line, using a colon:

Cost of 128 GB iPhone 14: $999                | $999.00

Labels are always made bold.

// double slash comments

All numbers after two slashes are ignored:

// 1 + 2                         | 
1 + 2                            | 3

You can also add slash comments to the end of lines:

I spent $128 + $45 on clothes // on 10-02-2019       |  $173.00

"quotation mark comments"

Boing "747" is $386.8M                |  $386.8M

(parenthesis comments)

If there's a single number with additional words that you want to exclude from an expression, you can put it in parentheses:

$999 (for iPhone 14)                               | $999.00
